    This new volume of Methods in Cell Biology looks at methods for analyzing correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM). With CLEM, people try to combine the advantages of both worlds, i.e. the dynamics information obtained by light microscopy and the ultrastructure as provided by electron microscopy. This volume contains the latest techniques on correlative microscopy showing that combining two imaging modalities provides more than each technique alone. Most importantly it includes the essential protocols, including tips, tricks and images for you to repeat these exciting techniques in your own lab. With cutting-edge material, this comprehensive collection is intended to guide researchers for years to come.

    This book reviews recent progress in cortical development research, focusing on the mechanisms of neural stem cell regulation, neuronal diversity and connectivity formation, and neocortical organization. Development of the cerebral cortex, the center for higher brain functions such as cognition, memory, and decision making, is one of the major targets of current research. The cerebral cortex is divided into many areas, including motor, sensory, and visual cortices, each of which consists of six layers containing a variety of neurons with different activities and connections. As this book explains, such diversity in neuronal types and connections is generated at various levels. First, neural stem cells change their competency over time, giving sequential rise to distinct types of neurons and glial cells: initially deep layer neurons, then superficial layer neurons, and lastly astrocytes. The activities and connections of neurons are further modulated via interactions with other brain regions, such as the thalamocortical circuit, and via input from the environment. This book on cortical development is essential reading for students, postdocs, and neurobiologists.

    In recent decades, cytopathology has assumed an increasing role in the primary diagnosis of mass lesions owing to its ability to provide rapid, non-invasive, and timely information. With cytopathology at the forefront of diagnosis and prognostication of neoplastic lesions, it is essential that physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of precancerous lesions and cancer have a clear understanding of specimen collection techniques, terminology for reporting, and outcomes in various diagnostic categories. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the role of cytology at various body sites. The diagnostic details covered are abbreviated in comparison with those in pathology texts. Instead, a more clinical approach is taken, with the focus on the advantages and limitations of techniques and the key features of entities that are important to clinicians. Pathological clinical correlation is highlighted throughout the book, ensuring that it will be highly relevant for clinicians. In particular, physicians who deal with oncology patients will find it to be a rich source of guidance on how to use and understand cytopathology in the diagnosis and exclusion of malignancy.

    Although cancer types vary widely, the number of new cancer drugs each year is severely limited. Even for those cancer therapies which are currently in use, prognostic outcomes vary significantly across cancer types. Drug discovery relies primarily on our knowledge of direct drug targets, but not the systematic off-target effects that these therapies may have. As a result, our knowledge of these drugs is somewhat limited to general mechanistic classes. Within these classes it is hard to find potential patient differences without time-intensive studies and trials. While drug classification relies on our knowledge of direct targets, it does not typically consider how a number of global cellular processes are ultimately affected. Quantifying the mechanistic differences between drugs is a difficult process. Current standards to quantify individual drug efficacy are large-scale measurements are taken at a heterogeneous population level, ignoring the effects of drug action or mechanism in single cells or cell populations. Because our knowledge is limited in this way, we are often surprised to find that similarly classified cancer drugs can have disparate effects in patients. Single-cell technologies including flow cytometry allow us to uncover relationships between drugs through simultaneous measurement of cell signal, cell cycle and cell type for each cell. Recent technological advances in flow cytometry have facilitated new clinical tests to determine cancer subtypes. In addition, these methodological advances have created potential for providing novel insights into drug mechanism and patient response. In this dissertation, I describe a new framework for performing mechanistic profiling of cancer cells. There are two facets of this problem. The first is an understanding of cancer cell cycle. Prior to treating with a drug, it is important to form a general model of how a cancer cell replicates. In a screening methodology, however, this is a difficult problem. I address this problem by building an automated, de novo model of cell cycle. Second, I perform cancer therapeutic profiling by measuring DNA damage, apoptosis, cell cycle, and cell signaling markers across multiple cancer cell types. In this thesis, I combine both cell cycle and drug profiling methods into a new drug profiling framework that can be used to find existing and novel cell cycle and drug-based biology. The results of our current work have major implications for use in profiling aberrant cell types in primary cancer samples, as well as mechanistic drug screening.

    Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and deadly primary brain tumor. Amplification and rearrangements of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene are frequently found in GBM, and the most common variant is EGFRvIII. Here we report that EGFRvIII is a novel cancer stem cell (CSC) or tumor initiating cell marker in GBM. EGFRvIII expression is restricted to sub-regions and sporadic cells within the tumor and EGFRvIII is frequently co-expressed in the putative CSC CD133+ population. EGFRvIII gene and protein expression can be maintained when primary GBM are cultured as tumor derived neurospheres and is lost when spheres are exposed to differentiating conditions. Furthermore, cells that express both EGFRvIII and CD133 display the greatest self-renewal and tumor initiating abilities when compared to the single positive or double negative populations. If amplification and rearrangement are early events in tumorigenesis, this implies that they should be preserved across the tumor despite focal expression. Unexpectedly, we found EGFR amplification and rearrangement throughout the tumor, including regions with no EGFRvIII expression. To study this phenomenon, we characterized three GBM cell lines with endogenous EGFRvIII expression. EGFRvIII defined a hierarchy and epigenetic mechanisms played a role in maintaining heterogeneous EGFRvIII expression, suggesting that drugs which modulate the epigenome might be used successfully in glioblastoma tumors. To assess a broad applicability of our findings to other tumor types, we investigated EGFRvIII expression and amplification in primary breast carcinoma. Our analyses confirmed the presence of EGFRvIII, but in the absence of amplification or rearrangement of the EGFR locus. Interestingly, EGFRvIII was often expressed in a subset of tumor cells and was co-expressed in the putative CSC CD44+/CD24-/low population. EGFRvIII-expressing cells had increased expression of stem cell and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) associated genes and increased in vitro sphere formation and in vivo tumor formation compared to non-expressing cells. Mechanistically, EGFRvIII mediated its effects through the Wnt/[beta]-catenin pathway. Collectively, this data suggests a novel function for EGFRvIII in tumorigenesis and further supports the use of EGFRvIII-targeted therapy in these tumor types.

    Studying the effects of gene expression in biological systems has traditionally been undertaken by measuring phenotypic response at a limited number of expression levels. Typically the effects of gene expression are assayed at a high level of overexpression and compared to physiological levels of expression; however, many examples exist in which the level of gene expression greatly affects the resulting cellular phenotypes. Of particular interest for our purposes is the interplay between oncogenes in driving tumorigenesis and cancer progression. For example, oncogene H-Ras is capable of both enhancing cellular proliferation at intermediate levels expression levels (doses) and causing cell cycle arrest and senescence at high expression levels. In order to more thoroughly investigate such behavior we have created a set of tools for measuring dose-dependent effects of gene expression. These tools consist of promoter library to drive wide range gene expression, single-cell proliferation measurements, and data analysis methods to calculate correlation curves between gene expression level and phenotype response. The system is designed for cell-by-cell measuring of both expression level and phenotype response by flow cytometry. This approach allows for full dose experiments to be performed in a single heterogeneous culture with individual cells accessing different expression levels for a given phenotype. Because we are interested in studying the cell biology and genetics of tumor cells, measuring the phenotype of proliferation rate was of particular interest. To aid in further investigation of proliferation rate response to gene overexpression a genetic proliferation reporter was developed. This reporter utilizes the cell cycle-dependent activity of the E2F class of transcription factors, which are active during the G1/S transition. The highly stable fluorescent proteins EGFP and mCherry are expressed from both an E2F-responsive and constitutive promoter, respectively. The ratio of fluorescence levels correlates to proliferation rate in a variety of cell lines, matching predictions made initially by computational model. Finally, given a culture containing expression of a gene or combination of genes by the promoter library and phenotype measurement, the data collected from those cells must be analyzed to determine a correlation curve representing the dose response of the phenotype to level of expression of the genes of interest. In order to calculate this curve from the flow cytometry data several empirical analysis methods were evaluated. We determined the locally weighted scatter plot smoothing (LOWESS) curve fitting method to be best for our purposes of fitting the dose-response curves. As the LOWESS fits of flow cytometry data represented a technical hurdle to performing the dose-response experiments a custom software package was created to allow for easy implementation of the constitutive promoter library for studying dose-dependent behavior. The result is a set of biological and computational tools that allow for high throughput evaluation of gene dose effects. Further effort has been undertaken to move the system to evaluate multiple genes simultaneously, with the ultimate goal of being able to measure genetic cooperation.

    Fluorescence microscopy is one of the most widely used tools in cell biology due its intrinsically high detection sensitivity coupled with the ability to genetically label proteins and other cellular structures with fluorescent tags. However, the resolution of fluorescence microscopy has historically been limited to about 200 nm laterally and 800 nm axially because of the diffraction limit of visible light. In the past five years, imaging below the diffraction limit ("super-resolution imaging") by localizing single fluorophores, one at a time (1-3), has opened a wide a variety of new biological systems for study. This Dissertation is a collection of both techniques for two and three dimensional super-resolution imaging as well as applications in bacterial and yeast imaging. References 1.

    Whi3 is an RNA binding protein that regulates cell cycle entry by binding to mRNA of the G1 cyclin CLN3 and to the cyclin-dependent kinase Cdc28. Cln3 binds to Cdc28 to promote passage through Start. whi3[delta] cells have a small size phenotype, and Whi3 may regulate cell size by sequestering CLN3 mRNA and Cdc28 protein in the cytoplasm to delay G1 entry (Wang et al., 2004). We observe that Whi3 reversibly localizes from the cytosol to cytoplasmic puncta in response to glucose deprivation and heat shock. This phenotype is shared by components of stress granules (SGs), which are large RNP complexes that form in yeast in response to various stress conditions; SGs sort and process mRNAs during the stress response (Buchan et al., 2008). Because Whi3 shares several characteristics with known SG components, including an RNA binding domain and stress-dependent relocalization, we hypothesize that Whi3 is a novel component of SGs. We show that Whi3 colocalizes with SG markers in response to glucose deprivation and heat shock. Preventing SG formation inhibits Whi3 foci formation. Like SG components, Whi3 is enriched in insoluble cell fractions during stress. Whi3 is not required for SG formation, but may be targeted to SGs to carry out a previously unknown function. We conclude that Whi3 is a novel component of yeast stress granules. This observation suggests an alternative model for Whi3 function: that Whi3 might regulate mRNA translation during stress by transporting mRNA to stress granules. We demonstrate that Whi3 regulates many of its interacting RNAs, and that this regulation may promote stress-dependent survival.

    One of the challenges facing modern medicine is to understand mammalian organ formation. Each organ has a specialized function and form, yet they are built from similar parts. One important part of each organ is the circulatory system, composed of arteries, veins, and capillaries, which is responsible for delivery of oxygen and nutrients and for the removal of carbon dioxide and metabolic waste. For centuries scientists have been trying to understand how the circulatory system functions and more recently how it forms. In this thesis, I focus on the development of the mouse pulmonary vasculature, the circulatory system that is responsible for transporting blood from the heart to the lungs where oxygenation occurs, and back to the heart where the oxygenated blood is pumped throughout the body. The lung is a complex organ made up of multiple hollow airway tubes that must form in coordination so that proper gas exchange can occur. In the first chapter I review the function and development of the circulatory system. In chapter two I present the experiments completed to determine the cellular origins of the blood vessels of the mouse lung and heart. Currently there are two major models for how the pulmonary arteries of the mouse form, vasculogenesis of lung mesenchymal endothelial progenitors and sprouting angiogenesis from vessels outside the lung. Using fate mapping I directly test the dominant model, vasculogenesis, and show that there are no endothelial progenitor cells resident in the lung mesenchyme. To determine if a vessel outside the lung is forming the pulmonary arteries I performed a clonal analysis labeling single endothelial cells before pulmonary artery formation and followed the fates of their daughter cells. I found a surprising multipotent progenitor population of endothelial cells, the primitive plexus of the lung, that gives rise to pulmonary arterial, venous, and plexus endothelial cells. I showed that the transition from plexus to arterial fate occurs in a leakproof manner in the lung by performing intracardiac perfusion experiments of fluorescently labeled dextrans and lectins. I also demonstrated a similar mechanism of leakproof plexus remodeling occurs in the heart during the development of the coronary arteries and veins. In chapter three I discuss experiments done to understand the molecular mechanisms controlling pulmonary artery formation. I describe an in silico in situ hybridization screen I performed to identify candidate molecules. I describe the expression pattern of BMP pathway activity in the lung as being restricted to the pulmonary arteries, a subset of the plexus and budding airways, using a transgenic mouse line that is only expressed in cells actively undergoing BMP signaling. I analyzed mice homozygously deficient for the BMP antagonists Gremlin and BMPER, and showed that there is no abnormal pulmonary artery formation or patterning phenotype. I also describe experiments in which I have deleted the BMP Receptor 2 from endothelial cells and again there is no abnormal pulmonary artery formation or patterning phenotype. I describe the expression pattern of VEGF in the lung as being mesenchymal during early lung formation, and show that mesenchymal deletions of VEGF do not result in abnormal pulmonary artery formation or patterning phenotypes. I found that multiple single gene manipulations do not result in abnormal phenotypes suggesting that pulmonary artery formation and patterning is robust and likely involves the interaction of multiple signaling pathways. This work describes a common mechanism of organ specific vascular bed formation that has not been previously described at a cellular and molecular level. I hope these studies provide a foundation for understanding how the vascular system of many organs form during organogenesis.

    The focus of this thesis is to understand the contribution of multiple learning mechanisms to cerebellum-dependent motor learning. The studies that contribute to this thesis examine the role multiple learning mechanisms in the context of signaling in the intact circuit of awake-behaving animals. By using a well-parameterized learning paradigm, it is possible to distinguish and separate the contribution of specific learning mechanisms to different aspects of learning. This thesis demonstrates the sufficiency to two learning mechanisms long hypothesized to be important for cerebellum-dependent learning: 1) LTD at the parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse in the cortex (Marr 1969; Albus 1971; Ito 1972); and 2) the output of Purkinje cell simple spike activity (Miles & Lisberger 1981). Furthermore, the findings highlight the importance of understanding how learning mechanisms operate in vivo and interact with the on-going activity as well as previous activity in the circuit to determine different learning outcomes. The idea that the properties of a learning mechanism do not operate in isolation to produce learning but must be considered in the context of the intact and functional circuit is a common lesson that could apply to and should be tested in other learning systems of the brain.

    The existence of 'cancer stem cells' (CSCs) has been a topic of heated debate for the last few years within the field of cancer biology. Their continuous characterization in a variety of solid tumors has lead to an abundance of evidence supporting their existence. CSCs are believed to be responsible for resistance against conventional treatment regimes of chemotherapy and radiation, ultimately, leading to metastasis and patient demise. To help aid clinicians, pharmaceutical companies and academic labs investigating how to better kill these highly aggressive cells we have summarized the DNA repair mechanism(s) and their role in the maintenance and regulation of both normal and cancer stem cells. Our book represents a comprehensive investigation into the highly effective DNA repair mechanisms of CSCs and what we need to understand in order to develop more advanced therapies to eradicate them from patients. Currently, there are no other published works entirely on DNA repair and Cancer Stem Cells. In addition, our book provides a comprehensive overview of CSC isolation and characterization from a variety of solid tumor types.

    "ENOX Proteins" documents a unique family of cell surface proteins which are the exclusive discovery (subsequently confirmed by others) of the authors, their students and their colleagues. An ENOX-based mechanism is provided for how cells increase in size that is both unique and applicable not only to cancer and cancer therapy but also to production agriculture and biomass increase. The role of ENOX proteins in biological time-keeping is described along with evidence for oscillations in the ratios of electron spin pairs defining ortho and para water states that form highly coordinated populations of coherent water of interest to physicists as the underlying mechanism. The age-related NADH oxidases that appear around age 30 and increase steadily thereafter with potentially causal involvements in atherogenesis and skin aging have been identified as five members of the TM-9 protein superfamily of all with different chromosomal locations. The arNOX proteins initially are membrane anchored but functionally-active N-terminal fragments that are shed into body fluids. Except for critical functional motifs, all of the ENOX protein family members have distinct protein sequences and chromosomal origins. A fourth member of the ENOX protein family occurs in plants as the primary target for both natural and synthetic growth hormone (auxin)-stimulated rapid cell enlargement. Despite masquerading as intractable and difficult to clone and characterize, ENOX proteins offer remarkable opportunities for research, commercial development and outside confirmation of new paradigms to help explain complex biological processes.

    Store-operated calcium (SOC) entry and channel play a central role in regulating intracellular calcium concentrations in a variety of cell types. SOC is critical for many physiological processes, most notably activation of the immune system, where its lack of function is known to cause severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) in human patients. In lymphocytes, where SOC has been extensively studied, it has been shown that SOC is mediated by the calcium channel Orai that is activated by its direct binding to STIM, a calcium sensor localized in the endoplasmic reticulum. While it was previously thought that SOC serves an important role only in immune and non-excitable cells, it is now clear that SOC and the proteins that regulate its function are ubiquitously expressed in variety of tissues, including muscle and the nervous system, and serve a diverse set of biological functions. More recently, SOC has been shown to act in a several pathological processes, ranging from muscular dystrophy to cancer, underscoring the significance of gaining a better understanding of its mechanism of action. Here we set out to develop pharmacological blockers of SOC, in order to gain insights into its molecular mechanism and physiological role. Such blockers could allow for acute inhibition of SOC, allowing for a temporal control that is essential for mechanistic studies. If successfully developed, such reagents could also be of therapeutic use as immunosuppressants or anti thrombotic agents in human patients. We designed a novel methodology for generating SOC blockers based on the identification and targeting of minimal functional domains (MFDs) of STIM and Orai. Using this approach, we identified small molecule blockers that can inhibit SOC at high nanomolar concentrations and can also block T cell activation in vitro and in vivo. These studies not only provide an important set of tools for better understanding STIM and Orai function, but also identify compounds that could potentially be developed into therapeutic agents for the treatment of pathological conditions such as autoimmune disease.

    In biochemistry, a metalloprotein is a generic term for a protein that contains a metal cofactor. The metal may be an isolated ion or may be coordinated with a nonprotein organic compound, such as the porphyrin found in hemoproteins. In some cases, the metal is co-coordinated with a side chain of the protein and an inorganic nonmetallic ion. This kind of protein-metal-nonmetal structure is seen in iron-sulfur clusters Metalloproteins deals with all aspects related to the intracellular and extracellular metal-binding proteins, including their structures, properties and functions. The biological roles of metal cations and metal-binding proteins are endless. They are involved in all crucial cellular activities. Many pathological conditions are related to the problematic metal metabolism. Research in metalloprotein-related topics is therefore rapidly growing, and different aspects of metal-binding proteins progressively enter curricula at Universities and even at the High School level on occasion. However, no key resource providing basic, but comprehensible knowledge on this rapidly expanding field exists. The Encyclopedia of Metalloproteins aims to bridge this gap, and will attempt to cover various aspects of metalloprotein/metalloproteomics and will deal with the different issues related to the intracellular and extracellular metal-binding proteins, including their structures, properties and functions. The goal is to cover exhaustively all catalytically and biologically crucial metal ions and to find at least one interacting protein for other metal ions. The Encyclopedia of Metalloproteins will provide a key resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, instructors, and professors interested in protein science, biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics.

    The Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) is an organelle with extraordinary signaling and homeostatic functions. It is the organelle responsible for protein folding, maturation, quality control and trafficking of proteins destined for the plasma membrane or for secretion into the extracellular environment. Failure, overloading or malfunctioning of any of the signaling or quality control mechanisms occurring in the ER may provoke a stress condition known as âER stressâ. Accumulating evidence indicates that ER stress may dramatically perturb interactions between the cell and its environment, and contribute to the development of human diseases, ranging from metabolic diseases and cancer to neurodegenerative diseases, or impact therapeutic outcome. This book primarily focuses on the pathophysiology of ER stress. It introduces the molecular bases of ER stress, the emerging relevance of the ER-mitochondria cross-talk, the signaling pathways engaged and cellular responses to ER stress, including the adaptive Unfolded Protein Response (UPR), autophagy as well as cell death. Next the book addresses the role of ER stress in physiology and in the etiology of relevant pathological conditions, like carcinogenesis and inflammation, neurodegeneration and metabolic disease. The last chapter describes how ER stress pathways can be targeted for therapeutic benefit. Altogether, this book will provide the reader with an exhaustive view of ER stress biology and the latest insights in the role of ER stress in relevant human diseases.

    This thesis examines three topics that are related to the Gram-positive bacterial cell envelope. First, I examine how transmembrane proteins navigate through the thick, heavily cross-linked Gram-positive cell wall while remaining anchored to the bacterial membrane. I develop a theoretical model that predicts that entropic confinement of a disordered protein can drive translocation through the cell wall. I experimentally test important predictions of the model to demonstrate that translocation depends on the length of the translocating protein and the geometry of the bacterial surface, while demonstrating that entropy-driven translocation occurs in a variety of Gram-positive species. Second, I study how the antimicrobial peptide nisin causes cell death in Gram-positive bacteria. I demonstrate that nisin treatment triggers membrane collapse in multiple Gram-positive species, and provide evidence that collapse is initiated by an increase in compressive stress in the membrane. Finally, I examine the process of cell division in the Gram-positive coccus Staphylococcus aureus. Contrary to the current view of S. aureus division, cell volume increases monotonically during the cell cycle, as opposed to occurring entirely during cell separation. I observed a dramatic millisecond hemisphere-to-sphere transition during cell separation that was accompanied by a decrease in surface area, suggesting that separation is associated with a redistribution of cell wall stress.

    The evolution of single cells into multicellular organisms was mediated, in large part, by the extracellular matrix. The proteins and glycoconjugates that make up the extracellular matrix provide structural support to cellular complexes, facilitate cell adhesion and migration, and impart mechanical properties that are important for tissue function. Each class of ECM macromolecule has evolved to incorporate distinctive properties that are defined by conserved modules that are mixed together to achieve appropriate function. This volume provides a comprehensive analysis of how the major ECM components evolved over time in order to fill their specific roles found in modern organisms. The major focus is on the structural matrix proteins, matricellular proteins, and more complex ECM structures such as basement membranes. Adhesive proteins and their receptors are also discussed.The series Biology of Extracellular Matrix is published in collaboration with the American Society for Matrix Biology.

    Cells in the developing embryo depend on signals from the extracellular environment to help guide their differentiation. An important mediator in this process is the extracellular matrix - secreted macromolecules that interact to form large protein networks outside the cell. During development, the extracellular matrix serves to separate adjacent cell groups, participates in establishing morphogenic gradients, and, through its ability to interact directly will cell-surface receptors, provides developmental clocks and positional information. This volume discusses how the extracellular matrix influences fundamental developmental processes and how model systems can be used to elucidate ECM function. The topics addressed range from how ECM influences early development as well as repair processes in the adult that recapitulate developmental pathways.The series Biology of Extracellular Matrix is published in collaboration with the American Society for Matrix Biology.

    Articular cartilage is a unique and highly specialized avascular connective tissue in which the availability of oxygen and glucose is significantly lower than synovial fluid and plasma. Glucose is an essential source of energy during embryonic growth and fetal development and is vital for mesenchymal cell differentiation, chondrogenesis and skeletal morphogenesis. Glucose is an important metabolic fuel for differentiated chondrocytes during post-natal development and in adult articular cartilage and is a common structural precursor for the synthesis of extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycans.

    Folding for the Synapse addresses the current view on how protein folding and misfolding, controlled by molecular chaperones, contribute to synapse function and dysfunction. Molecular chaperones have been studied in relation to de novo protein folding, but there is increasing awareness that chaperone function is required for the regulation of protein dynamics when functioning physiologically as an isolated moiety or part of a protein complex. This book will introduce both important concepts of folding machineries and give examples of the biological relevance of further chaperone functions.

    The cyclic ovary can be seen as a site of tissue damage, repair and precisely controlled tissue homeostasis, as long ovulation and luteolysis can be compared with acute and chronic inflammation. Innate immunity appears to be a powerful force in the endocrine system, representing a novel concept. In this monograph, remarkable evidence is given for the immune-privileged ovary being an implant on the chicken chorioallantoic membrane with an areactive mesenchyme. Mild to severe tissue damages due to follicular atresia, follicular rupture, or intraovarian oocyte release do no lasting harm. The most exciting part relates to the analysis of cytokeratin-positive (CK<sup>+</sup>) cells, comparing the fate mapping of this cell type from the fetal ovary to the adult organ. Findings on toll-like receptor 4 regulation and interferon-gamma-dependent positive effects indicate that CK<sup>+</sup> cells from human preovulatory follicles and bovine corpora lutea have similarities with nonlymphoid dendritic cells, a discovery that has the makings of a top story in basic and clinical research on the ovary.

    "The gases termed gasotransmitters play an increasingly important role in understanding how signalling into and between cells is modulated and fine-tuned. The advent of gasotransmitters has profoundly changed our way of thinking about biosynthesis, liberation, storage and action mechanisms in cellular signaling. In recent years an impressive amount of new data, distributed throughout the existing literature, has been generated. For this book the editors have recruited distinguished colleagues in the field to summarize and review important biological, pharmacological and medical functions and their implications, as well as methods for the detection of gasotransmitters."--P.

    RNA plays an important role in regulating cellular gene expression. Its ability to fold into secondary and tertiary structures underlies the RNA's ability to function and be processed in every step of its life cycle, including transcription, splicing, cellular localization, translation and turnover of the RNA. However, structural information for most RNAs in the cells, such as mRNAs, is missing due to the low throughput nature of RNA structure probing and the traditional difficulty of probing long RNAs, making it difficult to assess the full impact of RNA structure in biology. To fulfill the need to understand the roles of RNA structure on a global scale, we developed for the first time a novel strategy termed Parallel Analysis of RNA Structure (PARS), which couples structure-specific probing to high throughput sequencing to simultaneously generate secondary structures for thousands of RNA species at single nucleotide resolution. Applying PARS to the yeast transcriptome identified distinct structural organization of mRNAs, including a three nucleotide periodicity in the coding region and increased accessibility near the start codon for translation. Furthermore, we demonstrated that PARS can be used to study dynamics by probing the yeast transcriptome across a temperature gradient to identify functional structural regions that have differential propensity to melt. PARS can be readily applied to different organisms and conditions, to identify structural determinants that regulate gene expression changes across organisms in different cellular states. This expansion of RNA structural data will likely enhance our understanding of how RNA structure translates into RNA function in cellular systems, as well as open doors to potentially targeting these structural elements to regulate cellular behavior in diseases.

    This volume highlights the most interesting biomedical and clinical applications of high-dimensional flow and mass cytometry. It reviews current practical approaches used to perform high-dimensional experiments and addresses key bioinformatic techniques for the analysis of data sets involving dozens of parameters in millions of single cells. Topics include single cell cancer biology; studies of the human immunome; exploration of immunological cell types such as CD8+ T cells; decipherment of signaling processes of cancer; mass-tag cellular barcoding; analysis of protein interactions by proximity ligation assays; Cytobank, a platform for the analysis of cytometry data; computational analysis of high-dimensional flow cytometric data; computational deconvolution approaches for the description of intracellular signaling dynamics; and hyperspectral cytometry. All 10 chapters of this book have been written by respected experts in their fields. It is an invaluable reference book for both basic and clinical researchers.

    The Hippo signaling pathway is rapidly gaining recognition as an important player in organ size control and tumorgenesis. This volume presents virtually all aspects of tumor biology because members of the Hippo Pathway have been associated with numerous well-established cell signaling pathways, just to name a few; Rho, Wnt, TGFbeta and p53. Hippo signaling is not solely involved in regulating "classic" tumor characteristics such as cell proliferation, survival and growth, but is also diversely involved in cell-autonomous and non-cell-autonomous differentiation, migration and organ size control. With the multitude of signaling events mediated by the Hippo pathway and the vastly different functions that it plays, it is evident that these tumor suppressors are unique governors of cellular homeostasis. This timely volume gathers wide-ranging and burgeoning information on the Hippo pathway and its role in cancer into an accessible format of a single book.With the multitude of signaling events mediated by the Hippo pathway and the vastly different functions that it plays, it is evident that these tumor suppressors are unique governors of cellular homeostasis.

    Human homeostasis refers to complex interactions to regulate and maintain the internal conditions of the organism under stable condition. In spite of the progress made on cell growth and division, the circuits that coordinate these processes and maintain the homeostatic balance between cell growth and cell death have not been clarified. Deregulation of homeostatic processes results in different forms of imbalances that can turn to diseases including hepatitis, cyrrhosis and tumor formation. Abnormal growth of tissues can lead to a broad spectrum of neoplastic diseases from tissue swelling, primary tumor formation, cancer and ultimately to secondary tumors known as metastases. Tumor formation is a complex process, that develops through many steps. The discussion of balance and its loss in cell growth, primary and secondary tumor formation necessitate basic information in chemistry (carcinogenesis), biochemistry (metabolism), physics (instrumentation), cell biology (compartments), anatomy, physiology, clinical experience (screening, medical imaging, therapy). The focus of this book has been placed on: a) balance of cell growth, b) tumor formation, c) development of cancer and metastasis, e) diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The steps of the lymphatic type of metastatic tumor spread are described. Due to the interdisciplinary nature, the book gives information for a wide audience including biology, biotechnology, molecular, ecology, medical, pharmacist, chemist students. Additional information is provided for biomedical, pharma, medical and life scientists, physicians and health care professionals.

    Adult neurogenesis has been questioned for many years. In the early 1900s, a dogma was established that denied new neuron formation in the adult brain. Adult neural stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are present in the adult brain and are capable of dividing and differentiating into glia and new neurons.

    Recent years have witnessed numerous advances in stem cell research that have suggested novel strategies for the treatment of the chronic and regenerative diseases that pose a growing challenge to the provision of healthcare in the 21<sup>st</sup> century. Nevertheless, there is little doubt that related disciplines have failed to keep pace with such developments, of which the immunology of transplant rejection is perhaps the most relevant to the nascent field of regenerative medicine. Indeed, given that after decades of research into the mechanisms of organ allograft rejection, we remain wholly dependent on immune suppression to ensure acceptance of foreign tissues, we might legitimately ask whether there is any reason why tissues differentiated from stem cells might not suffer the same fate. This volume seeks to address this issue by drawing on the principles of alloantigen recognition to assess the validity of early convictions that embryonic stem cell-derived tissues may prove invisible to the immune system of the host and the more recent belief that induced pluripotent stem cells, derived in a fully autologous manner, will circumvent the issue of immunogenicity. Having debunked such assumptions and established the magnitude of the immunological barriers to be overcome, this book then draws on the expertise of internationally-recognised laboratories around the world to provide a critical assessment of the likely success of applying strategies such as stem cell banking, silencing of genes that confer immunogenicity, and the induction of transplantation tolerance to overcoming the immunological barriers in the future. Indeed, it is only through reaching a consensus in the field that enduring solutions to such an intractable problem may ultimately emerge.

    1. VEGF inhibition increases hematocrit by hepatic Hif-2[Alpha]-dependent erythrocytosis and Hif-2[Alpha]--independent plasma volume contraction. Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) is an essential regulator of angiogenesis whose pharmacological inhibition represents a promising cancer therapeutic modality. We have previously reported that high-grade inhibition of VEGF by adenoviral expression of soluble VEGF receptor (VEGFR) ectodomains and recombinant VEGF Trap protein induce hepatic Epo-dependent erythrocytosis and polycythemia. Here, we demonstrate that VEGF inhibition induces erythrocytosis in a hepatic Hif-2[Alpha]-dependent manner. Conditional inactivation of hepatic Hif-2[Alpha] in Hif2[Alpha] flox/flox mice by either adenovirus Cre injection or albumin-Cre genetic cross suppressed VEGF inhibition-induced hepatic Epo production and blunted hematocrit elevation. Interestingly, a modest rise in hematocrit (5-10%) persisted in VEGF inhibitor-treated Hif-2[Alpha] liver knockout mice despite the absence of hepatic Epo elevation or reticulocytosis. Analysis of red blood cell mass and plasma volume indicate that, in addition to erythrocytosis, VEGF inhibition significantly reduces blood plasma volume (PV) (10-30% decrease) in a EPO- and Hif-2[Alpha]-independent manner. Thus, VEGF inhibition-induced hematocrit elevation in mice is attributable to both hepatic Hif-2[Alpha]-dependent erythrocytosis and Hif-2[Alpha] --independent plasma volume contraction, with accompanying implications for human patients exhibiting elevated haemoglobin levels in response to pharmacologic VEGF inhibition. 2. VEGF Inhibitors Enhance Hepatic insulin Signaling and Ameliorates Diabetes through Activation of Hepatic HIF-2[Alpha]. In the United States, over 18 million people have diabetes and approximately 90% of these cases are the type 2 form of the disease. The central pathophysiologic defect of T2DM is insulin resistance, where tissues such as muscle, fat and liver exhibit reduced responsiveness to insulin, despite normal to elevated levels of production of the hormone. During our studies on the role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in erythropoeisis, we made a surprising observation that VEGF inhibition reduces blood glucose in normal lean mice and significantly corrects hyperglycemia in diabetic and insulin-resistant db/db mice. Metabolic profiling of VEGF inhibitor-treated mice revealed enhanced insulin sensitivity at the liver but not at the periphery. In the liver of these mice, expression of insulin receptor substrate-2 (IRS-2) was elevated, accompanied by enhanced Akt activation and suppression of gluconeogenic genes. Hepatic insulin sensitization by VEGF inhibitors requires hypoxia-inducible factor 2-alpha (Hif-2[Alpha]) as genetic deletion of hepatic Hif-2[Alpha] abrogated insulin sensitization and normalizes blood glucose in VEGF inhbitor-treated mice. Conversely, overexpression of a constitutively active allele of Hif-2[Alpha] in liver hepatocytes reduces blood glucose and activates hepatic insulin signaling in vitro and in vivo. Analysis of the human Irs-2 sequence revealed the presence of several potential Hypoxia-Responsive-Elements (HREs) within its 5' promoter. Using a Irs-2 promoter reporter construct, we found that overexpression of Hif-2[Alpha] or addition of a hypoxia-mimetic drug deferoxamine (DFO) resulted in increased Irs-2 transcription. These data suggest Irs-2 is a hypoxia-inducible gene. In this study, we show that VEGF inhibitors improve hepatic insulin action through activation of hepatic HIF-2[Alpha]. Our results suggest Hif-2[Alpha] positively regulates insulin signaling by promoting Irs-2 expression. These data suggest a previously unsuspected link between hypoxia and insulin signaling in the liver and indicate VEGF inhibitors may be useful for the treatment of diabetes.

    "Cell signaling, which is also often referred to as signal transduction or, in more specialized cases, transmembrane signaling, is the process by which cells communicate with their environment and respond temporally to external cues that they sense there. All cells have the capacity to achieve this to some degree, albeit with a wide variation in purpose, mechanism, and response. At the same time, there is a remarkable degree of similarity over quite a range of species, particularly in the eukaryotic kingdom, and comparative physiology has been a useful tool in the development of this field. The central importance of this general phenomenon (sensing of external stimuli by cells) has been appreciated for a long time, but it has truly become a dominant part of cell and molecular biology research in the past three decades, in part because a description of the dynamic responses of cells to external stimuli is, in essence, a description of the life process itself. This approach lies at the core of the developing fields of proteomics and metabolomics, and its importance to human and animal health is already plainly evident"--Provided by publisher.

    In order for a tissue to be properly sized and patterned, enormous care must be taken to ensure that cell proliferation and differentiation are tightly regulated. The embryonic brain must execute a temporally and spatially defined developmental scheme, resulting in the production of millions of cells of multiple lineages. These cells and their resultant functional architecture must be maintained in the homeostatic adult mouse brain. These processes are in part controlled by external signaling factors, which include Wnts, and their transcriptional programs. However, the degree to which and exact mechanisms by which cell fate choices--including self-renewal, proliferation, and differentiation--are controlled by Wnt/ss-catenin signaling are unknown. Here, I describe studies to investigate these questions. First, I show the identification of a novel target of Wnt/sscatenin signaling, Pou6f1, which mediates neural differentiation and proliferation in embryonic neural progenitor cells. Next, I illustrate the use of a lineage tracing approach using a Wnt/ss-catenin target gene, Axin2, to identify and trace sites of Wnt/ss-catenin responsiveness in the developing and adult mouse brain and central nervous system. Using this same Axin2CreERT2 mouse, I describe the functional consequences of loss of sscatenin from Axin2-expressing cells. Axin2CreERT2 labels numerous radial glial cell populations throughout the central nervous system, three of which serve as functional stem/progenitor populations. Loss of ss-catenin from adult Axin2+ populations results in tissue architecture defects and increased proliferation, presumably because Wnt serves as a self-renewal signal. These studies demonstrate the importance of Wnt/ss-catenin signaling for mediating multiple cell fate choices during the development and homeostasis of the mouse central nervous system, and suggest mechanisms by which neural stem/progenitor populations could be manipulated for therapeutic outcomes.

    Terminating cell migration is critical for cancer treatment, because malignancy progresses through migrating tumor cells (metastasis) and migrating endothelial cells (neoangiogenesis.) Although cell migration requires Ca2+ for polarity and turning, it is not well understood how Ca2+ signals regulate cell migration. By studying sheet migration using endothelial cells loaded with Fura-2/AM, we identified pulsatile local Ca2+ pulses near the cell front. Each Ca2+ pulse controlled a local retraction and adhesion process in lamellipodia. Eliminating endogenous Ca2+ pulses reduced lamellipodial retraction while photo-release of Ca2+ from NP-EGTA induced front retraction and adhesion, indicating that these small Ca2+ signals were both necessary and sufficient for cyclic lamellipodia activity. Mechanistically, these local Ca2+ pulses acts through myosin light-chain kinase and myosin II to mediate actin cable retraction and to strengthen focal adhesion. We further explored the origin of these local Ca2+ signals. Removing extracellular Ca2+ did not eliminate local Ca2+ pulses, suggesting that these local signals are generated from activated inositol-3-phosphate receptors (IP3R) in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Inhibiting receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) diminished local Ca2+ pulses, confirming that RTK-induced IP3R activation was the major source of these Ca2+ signals. More experiments demonstrated that diacylglycerol, the downstream regulator of RTK signaling, was also enriched in the cell front. It contributed to cell motility and polarity through protein kinase C. Therefore, polarized RTK signaling generates local Ca2+ signals and diacylglycerol in the cell front to ensure coordinated cell movement. We also investigated how Ca2+ homeostasis was maintained during cell migration. Our data showed that plasma membrane Ca2+ ATPases (PMCA) pumped Ca2+ out of the cell more actively in the front than in the back. The resulting low basal Ca2+ in the front of migrating cells maintained the sensitivity of the cell front to local Ca2+ pulses. Furthermore, to avoid depletion of Ca2+ in the front ER after it being released through IP3R, microtubules transported STIM1, a sensor of ER luminal Ca2+, toward the cell front triggering store-operated Ca2+ influx near the leading edge. Thus, cells maintain efficient migration through coordinated Ca2+ signaling systems. In summary, temporal-spatial coordination of Ca2+ signaling controls cell migration by regulating local adhesion, motility, and polarization. Our research also reveals the importance of interactions between signaling modules in migrating cells. Finally, a "synthetic immobility" screen will elucidate how different components are coordinated in cell migration, and will identify novel drug targets against cancer metastasis.

    "Lactoferrin was first identified as an iron-binding glycoprotein abundantly found in milk. It has been considered to play important roles in host defense, since lactoferrin shows broad spectrum of anti-bacterial and anti-viral activities, arising from its iron-chelating property. Furthermore, lactoferrin can regulate the function of innate and adaptive immune cells and exhibits immuno-modulating properties. These activities of lactoferrin implicate that potential use of lactoferrin as a wound healing agent. In addition, this book shows that lactoferrin is a potent regulator of dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes, and promotes skin or corneal epithelial wound healing by increasing their proliferation, migration or deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) components such as collagen and hyaluronan. This book provides the scientific background on use of lactoferrin as a wound healing agent. Indeed, lactoferrin exerts its biological effects by binding to specific lactoferrin receptors on target cells. This book also covers the in-depth information on roles of lactoferrin as a signaling molecule."--Publisher's website.

    This book is the first to summarize the current knowledge of the cell biology of lens epithelial cells in relation to and in the development of posterior capsular opacification (PCO). PCO remains the most common long-term complication of modern cataract surgery, occurring months or years after cataract surgery, unlike most other complications that tend to arise during or soon after the procedure. Opacification of the posterior capsule appears to be linked to lens epithelial cells that are left behind in the eye during cataract removal. These cells proliferate, migrate across the posterior lens capsule, and undergo changes that result in fibrous or pearl-type opacities in the capsule. The first section of the text explains the molecular mechanism and biology of lens epithelial cells that lead to the incidence of PCO. In the second part, in addition to a description of the mechanism and pathological condition of PCO, surgical methods and devices for preventing PCO are discussed in detail. Lens Epithelium and Capsular Opacification will benefit not only young clinical residents and junior researchers, but also established faculty in the clinical or basic academic field.

    The intestinal epithelium is one of the most rapidly proliferating tissues in the body. A complete turnover of the epithelium occurs every 3-5 days in the mouse, a process that is maintained by a small population of intestinal stem cells (ISCs) that reside in the crypt bases. The signals that regulate the behavior of these ISCs are still poorly understood. However, the recent identification of genes that mark functional stem cells has yielded insights into how ISCs are regulated and maintained. Here, we demonstrate that Bmi1 and Lgr5 mark two functionally distinct ISCs in vivo. Lgr5 marks mitotically active ISCs that exhibit exquisite sensitivity to canonical Wnt modulation, contribute robustly to homeostatic regeneration, and are quantitatively ablated by irradiation. In contrast, Bmi1 marks quiescent ISCs that are insensitive to Wnt perturbations, contribute weakly to homeostatic regeneration, and are resistant to high dose radiation injury. Post-irradiation, however, the normally quiescent Bmi1+ ISCs dramatically proliferate to clonally repopulate multiple contiguous crypts and villi. Clonogenic culture of isolated single Bmi1+ ISCs yields long-lived self-renewing spheroids of intestinal epithelium that produce Lgr5-expressing cells, thereby establishing a lineage relationship between these two populations in vitro. Taken together, these data provide direct evidence that Bmi1 marks quiescent, injury-inducible reserve ISCs that exhibit striking functional distinctions from Lgr5+ ISCs, and support a model whereby distinct ISC populations facilitate homeostatic versus injury-induced regeneration. How these ISCs maintain their stemness remains unclear. Paneth cells have been suggested to serve as niche cells for the Lgr5+ ISCs, perhaps through the secretion of essential paracrine factors, but recent reports clearly demonstrate that Paneth cells are not required for Lgr5+ ISC maintenance. Recently, the G-protein-coupled receptors Lgr4-6 were reported to associate with Wnt receptors to mediate R-spondin signaling. Given the importance of Wnt/R-spondin signaling in intestinal crypt maintenance, we tested the in vivo function of Lgr5 by adenovirus-mediated overexpression of the soluble ligand-binding Lgr5 extracellular domain. Circulating Lgr5 ectodomain induced the migration of Paneth cells from the crypts, their eventual loss, and a concomitant disappearance of Lgr5+ ISCs. Paneth cell migration was associated with downregulation of Wnt signaling and its target EphB3. The loss of Lgr5+ ISCs did not affect maintenance of the intestinal epithelium, nor did Lgr5+ stem cells disappear from non-intestinal organs. Together, these findings characterize an easily tractable experimental model for the in vivo deletion of Lgr5+ ISCs, and suggest that Lgr receptors function to actively maintain Lgr5+ ISCs in vivo.
