Book Description :

This book covers a variety of cutting-edge basic and clinical PAK research ranging from laboratory benches to hospital beds. The goal of this book is to inspire not only biomedical research scientists and university students, but also a variety of patients who suffer from PAK-dependent diseases and clinical doctors who try to cure or delay these PAK-dependent diseases. This book consists of 9 chapters which deal with different aspects of this kinase. These chapters are written by more than two dozen world-leading PAK experts. Each of these will provide updated biomedical information as well as future insight to a wide range of readers who are interested in this unique kinase and both its pathological and physiological roles as well as its functional evolution from its ancestral origins. This publication will be the very first book ever published solely focused on PAK family kinases. Each chapter deals with the latest progress in PAK research written by a leading PAK expert with his or her own ideas and insight. Each chapter of this book has been written in such a way that clinical doctors who seek the effective cure of these formidable diseases, in addition to research scientists and biomedical students will value this book. This book describes in detail a number of PAK blockers which would be potentially useful for the therapy of these PAK-dependent diseases, and some of them are indeed available on the market inexpensively, without any side effect.

Book Description :

The androgen-signaling pathway is important for the growth and progression of prostate cancer. The cell cycle signaling regulated by the mitogen activated protein/extracellular-signal-regulated kinase (MAPK/ERK) have been linked to tumorigenesis and tumor progression. The p2l-activated kinases (PAKs) are members of a growing class of Rac/Cdc42-associated Ste20-like ser/thr protein kinases. Recent studies have shown that MAPK/ERK signaling can be mediated via Cdc42/Rac-stimulation of PAK activity. Recently, we demonstrated a specific interaction between a novel PAK protein, PAK6, and AR. This finding provided the first link between I PAK-mediated signaling to the steroid hormone receptor pathway. In this study, we propose to assess the biological roles of PAK6 in prostate cancer cells, and to examine the expression of PAK6 in prostate tissues. We anticipate that by completing the objectives proposed in this grant, we will obtain fresh insight into the regulatory processes of AR and PAK6 that may contribute to the development of new targets for the treatment of prostate cancer.

Book Description :

Understanding the mechanisms involved in tissue reorganization and organ formation are fundamental questions that are of particular interest to those studying epithelial morphogenesis. Model organisms such as Drosophila melanogaster have been instrumental in identifying key components required for cellular processes that are critical for tissue morphogenesis as a whole. These include cell fate specification, cell shape change, cell growth and cell migration. The Rho subfamily of small GTPases Rho, Rac and Cdc42, are master regulators of actin cytoskeletal dynamics and the well-characterized Rac/Cdc42 effector kinase Pak has been implicated in morphogenesis of epithelia both in mammalian cell culture as well as Drosophila development. Drosophila oogenesis is a highly favourable system for studying epithelial morphogenesis and differentiation of epithelia from a stem cell. Newly formed germline cysts become encapsulated by follicle cells that arise from follicle stem cells (FSCs) to form egg chambers. This study on Pak function during oogenesis, combined with the work of others, has opened the door to our understanding of how the FSC and its niche produce a simple yet very organized epithelium. Pak appears to be required during early stages of oogenesis at or around the time point at which FSCs and/or their niches are specified. Loss of Pak during early stages of oogenesis leads to a novel side-by-side egg chamber phenotype with pak mutant germaria having duplicated FSC niches, implicating Pak in FSC niche formation. This work has led to a model for stem cell niche formation that may be broadly applicable. Later in oogenesis Pak is required for the polarized organization of the basal F-actin in follicle cells, which drives egg chamber elongation. Further investigation of Pak's role has demonstrated that it acts antagonistically to the Rho1-activated actomyosin contractility pathway in regulation of this F-actin. The basal F-actin of the follicle cells is similarly organized as the stress fibres of mammalian cells and insights gained from this work are likely to be relevant to understanding regulation of the mammalian cytoskeleton. Overall this work has revealed new roles for Pak in epithelial development.

Book Description :

(Cont.) family, as absence of Nf2 expression in fibroblasts leads to many phenotypes reminiscent of overactive Rac, such as increased membrane ruffling and increased activity of the c-jun N- terminal kinase (JNK). Our work has extended to the analysis of the role of merlin in the regulation of the Rac pathway. Using rat schwannoma cells and N2-deficient MEFs, we have demonstrated that merlin exerts its inhibitory effects downstream of Rac, through a direct interaction with the p21 activated kinase, Pak. We demonstrate that in the absence of merlin, Pak is active and hyperphosphorylated, and, conversely, when merlin is overexpressed, Pak activity is diminished. The N-terminal half of merlin binds to the functionally conserved Rac/Cdc42 interaction binding (CRIB) domain of Pak. Several models for merlin regulation of Pak activity will be discussed. Finally, the identification of Pak as a kinase that is misregulated in the absence of NF2 may lead to possible avenues for therapeutic intervention.

Book Description :

Cellular Signal Processing offers a unifying view of cell signaling based on the concept that protein interactions act as sophisticated data processing networks that govern intracellular and extracellular communication. It is intended for use in signal transduction courses for undergraduate and graduate students working in biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and pharmacology, as well as medical students. The text is organized by three key topics central to signal transduction: the protein network, its energy supply, and its evolution. It covers all important aspects of cell signaling, ranging from prokaryotic signal transduction to neuronal signaling, and also highlights the clinical aspects of cell signaling in health and disease. This new edition includes expanded coverage of prokaryotes, as well as content on new developments in systems biology, epigenetics, redox signaling, and small, non-coding RNA signaling.

Book Description :

It is now becoming very clear that the development and progression of tumor towards the malignant (metastatic) phenotype depends tightly on the interaction between the tumor cells and the tumor microenvironment. Tumor cells respond to stimuli generated within the tumor microenvironment for their growth advantage while the tumor cell themselves reshape and remodel the architecture and function of their extracellular matrices. The term tumor microenvironment is a wide umbrella consisting of stromal cells such as fibroblasts and endothelial cells and infiltration immune cells including T and B cells, macrophages, and other inflammatory cells (PMNs). These different components of the tumor microenvironment could have stimulatory and inhibitory effects on tumor progression by regulating the gene expression repertoire within the tumor cells on one hand and the stroma cells on the other. In this volume we have seven contributors who will discuss several different aspects on the cross talk within the tumor microenvironment components leading to the acquisition of the metastatic phenotype. It is our hope that these state-of-the-art studies will shed further light on our understanding of these complicated processes.

Book Description :

The internal structure of a cell can be affected by signals in the form of small molecules outside the cell. These changes can then alter the shape or adhesiveness of the cell. This volume centers particularly on one family of cellular proteins which transmit these signals, the Rho Ras-like GTPases, and examines their role in normal cellular processes and development. Also discussed are their roles in cancer formation and microbial pathogenesis.
