Just Published: The AMPK-Sirtuin 1-YAP axis is regulated by fluid flow intensity and controls autophagy flux in kidney epithelial cells by Aurore Claude-Taupin
In their recently published paper in Nature Communications, Aurore Claude-Taupin et al. explore the critical role of shear stress, a known regulator of renal function, and its dysregulation in various kidney diseases.
Building on prior research highlighting the significance of primary cilium-dependent autophagy in kidney epithelial cells' response to fluid flow, a new dimension has emerged.
Key Insights
  • Nuclear YAP/TAZ's involvement in negatively regulating [...]

Just Published: Canonical and Non-Canonical Roles of SNX1 and SNX2 in Endosomal Membrane Dynamics by Juliane Da Graça
In their recent review, published in Contact CTC, Juliane Da Graça, from Morel Lab, deep-dives into the fascinating world of endosomal membrane dynamics, uncovering the multifaceted functions of Sorting Nexins (SNXs), particularly focusing on SNX1 and SNX2.
Navigating the Endosomal Landscape: SNX1 and SNX2 boast a membrane-curvature domain and a phosphoinositide-binding domain, anchoring them to the PI3P-positive surface of endosomes. This positioning facilitates interactions [...]

Just published in Immunity: SARS-CoV-2 Omicron BA.1 breakthrough infection drives late remodeling of the memory B cell repertoire in vaccinated individuals

The team of Matthieu Mahévas and Pascal Chappert have been following up on their recent work on B cell responses in the context of SARS-CoV-2 infection and mRNA vaccination. Studying memory B cells and plasma cells post SARS-CoV-2 Omicron BA.1 breakthrough infection in individuals previously vaccinated with three doses of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine, they show clear signs of antigen imprinting from the Hu-1 Spike encoded in the vaccine. However, the diversity of the [...]

Just published in Cell Reports: Lipocalin-2 induces mitochondrial dysfunction in renal tubular cells via mTOR pathway activation
Mitochondrial dysfunction is a critical process involved in plethora of pathologies. Morgan Gallazzini’s group in the team of Fabiola Terzi identified Lipocalin-2 as an inducer of mitochondrial dysfunction. By combining in cells and in vivo renal disease models the team demonstrated that Lipocalin-2 regulates mTOR activity and thus induces mitochondrial fragmentation and loss of function.
This work has been published in Cell Reports and is available to [...]
