Endometriosis is an inflammatory condition manifested by the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside of the uterine cavity. The most common clinical presentations of endometriosis are dysmenorrhea, infertility, and severe pelvic pain. Few hypotheses attempt to explain the pathogenesis of endometriosis; however, none of the theories have been fu...

Background: Lymphotoxin β receptor (LTβR) is a member of tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) superfamily which regulates the immune response. At the cellular level, upon ligand binding, the receptor activates the pro-inflammatory NF-κB and AP-1 pathways. Yet, the intracellular distribution of LTβR, the routes of its endocytosis and their connecti...

Background: Lymphotoxin β receptor (LTβR) plays important roles in the development of the immune system and immune response. At the cellular level, ligand-bound LTβR activates the pro-inflammatory NF-κB pathway but the detailed mechanisms regulating its signaling remain unknown. Understanding them is of high importance since LTβR and its ligands a...
Article
Cytokine receptors, such as tumor necrosis factor receptor I (TNFRI, also known as TNFRSF1A) and lymphotoxin β receptor (LTβR), activate inflammatory nuclear factor (NF)-κB signaling upon stimulation. We have previously demonstrated that depletion of ESCRT components leads to endosomal accumulation of TNFRI and LTβR, and their ligand-independent si...
Article
Abstract Because signaling mediated by the transcription factor nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) is initiated by ligands and receptors that can undergo internalization, we investigated how endocytic trafficking regulated this key physiological pathway. We depleted all of the ESCRT (endosomal sorting complexes required for transport) subunits, which media...
Article
APPL1 is a multifunctional endocytic adaptor which acts at different steps of various signaling pathways. Here we report that APPL1 interacts with Dvl2, a protein known to activate the canonical and non-canonical Wnt pathways. APPL1 synergizes with Dvl2 and potentiates transcription driven by AP-1 transcription factors, specifically by c-Jun, in no...
Article

Some endocytic proteins have recently been shown to play a role in tumorigenesis. In this study, we demonstrate that APPL2, an adapter protein with known endocytic functions, is upregulated in 40% cases of glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and aggressive cancer of the central nervous system. The silencing of APPL2 expression by small interfe...
Article
Recent discoveries have suggested that some endocytic proteins are involved in multiple steps of cellular signaling, which starts from endocytosis of activated receptors and is further transmitted from the cytoplasm to the nucleus. Two homologous adaptor proteins APPL1 and APPL2 seem to constitute good examples of such proteins, involved in both en...
Article
Full-text available
We have investigated the possible role of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase (Pol) I in chromosomal replication fidelity. This was done by substituting the chromosomal polA gene by the polAexo variant containing an inactivated 3'-->5' exonuclease, which serves as a proofreader for this enzyme's misinsertion errors. Using this strain, activities of Pol...
Article
Full-text available
Multifunctional adaptor protein APPL1 [adaptor protein containing PH (pleckstrin homology) domain, PTB (phosphotyrosine binding) domain and leucine zipper motif] belongs to a growing group of endocytic proteins which actively participate in various stages of signalling pathways. Owing to its interaction with the small GTPase Rab5, APPL1 localizes p...
Article
An increasing number of proteins appear to perform multiple, sometimes unrelated functions in the cell. Such moonlighting properties have been recently demonstrated for proteins involved in clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Some clathrin adaptors and endosomal proteins can undergo nucleocytoplasmic shuttling, which is often based on intrinsic sequence...

Constitutive expression of the SOS regulon in Escherichia coli recA730 strains leads to a mutator phenotype (SOS mutator) that is dependent on DNA polymerase V (umuDC gene product). Here we show that a significant fraction of this effect also requires DNA polymerase IV (dinB gene product).
Article
Full-text available
We investigated the mutator effect resulting from overproduction of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase IV. Using lac mutational targets in the two possible orientations on the chromosome, we observed preferential mutagenesis during lagging strand synthesis. The mutator activity likely results from extension of mismatches produced by polymerase III hol...
Article
Escherichia coli DNA polymerase III holoenzyme (HE) is the main replicase responsible for replication of the bacterial chromosome. E. coli contains four additional polymerases, and it is a relevant question whether these might also contribute to chromosomal replication and its fidelity. Here, we have investigated the role of DNA polymerase II (Pol...
