ABSTRACT

With various diseases ravaging internationally, the demands for recombinant adenoviral vector (Adv) vaccines have increased dramatically. To meet the demand for Adv vaccine, development of a new cell culture process is an effective strategy. Applying hyperosmotic stress in cells before virus infection could increase the yield of Adv in batch culture mode. Emerging perfusion culture can significantly increase the yield of Adv as well. Therefore, combining the hyperosmotic stress process with perfusion culture is expected to improve the yield of Adv at high cell density. In this study, a shake flask combined with a semi-perfusion culture was used as a scaled-down model for bioreactor perfusion culture. Media with osmotic pressure ranging from 300 to 405 mOsm were used to study the effect of hyperosmotic stress on cell growth and Adv production. The results showed that using a perfusion culture process with a hyperosmotic pressure medium (370 mOsm) during the cell growth phase and an isosmotic pressure medium (300 mOsm) during the virus production phase effectively increased the yield of Adv. This might be due to the increased expression of HSP70 protein during the late phases of virus replication. The Adv titer in a bioreactor with such a process reached 3.2×1010 IFU/mL, three times higher than that of the traditional perfusion culture process. More importantly, this is the first time that a strategy of combining the hyperosmotic stress process with perfusion culture is applied to the production of Adv in HEK 293 cells. It also reveals the reason why the hyperosmotic stress process increased the yield of Adv, which may facilitate the process optimization of for producing other Adv in HEK 293 cells.

ABSTRACT

Objective To test the cardiac toxicity of new compound HMS-01 and evaluate the safety profile for clinical trials. Methods Manualpatch clamp method was used to measure human Ether-a-go-go-Related Gene (hERG) potassium channel currents with different concentrations of HMS-01. Cisapride was selected as the positive control drug. HMS-01 was diluted to the concentration of 0.3, 1, 3, 10 and 30 µmol/L and applied to the cells. The changes in electrical currents were recorded and the inhibition rate was calculated. Results At the highest concentration of 30µmol/L, the inhibitory rate of HMS-01 on hERG channel was less than 30%. There was no obvious inhibitory effect compared with cisapride. Conclusion Compared with the cisapride, HMS-01 has no obvious inhibitory effect on hERG channel and has no cardiotoxicity.

ABSTRACT

Background: Familial hyperaldosteronism type I is caused by the generation of a chimeric aldosterone synthase enzyme (ASCE) which is regulated by ACTH instead of angiotensin II. We have reported that in vitro, the wild-type (ASWT) and chimeric aldosterone synthase (ASCE) enzymes are inhibited by progesterone and estradiol does not affect their activity. Aim: To explore the direct action of testosterone on ASWT and ASCE enzymes. Material and Methods: HEK-293 cells were transiently transfected with vectors containing the full ASWT or ASCE cDNAs. The effect of testosterone on AS enzyme activities was evaluated incubating HEK-cells transfected with enzyme vectors and adding deoxycorticosterone (DOC) alone or DOC plus increasing doses of testosterone. Aldosterone production was measured by HPLC-MS/MS. Docking of testosterone within the active sites of both enzymes was performed by modelling in silico. Results: In this system, testosterone inhibited ASWT (90% inhibition at five pM, 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50) =1.690 pM) with higher efficacy andpotency than ASCE (80% inhibition at five pM, IC50=3.176 pM). Molecular modelling studies showed different orientation of testosterone in ASWT and ASCE crystal structures. Conclusions: The inhibitory effect of testosterone on ASWT or ASCE enzymes is a novel non-genomic testosterone action, suggesting that further clinical studies are needed to assess the role of testosterone in the screening and diagnosis of primary aldosteronism.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: The capacity of a human cell line to secrete recombinant factor VIII with a F309S point mutation was investigated, as was the effect of the addition of chemical chaperones (betaine and sodium-4-phenylbutyrate) on the secretion of factor VIII. METHODS: This work used a vector with a F309S mutation in the A1 domain to investigate FVIII production in the HEK 293 human cell line. Factor VIII activity was measured by chromogenic assay. Furthermore, the effects of chemical drugs on the culture were evaluated. RESULTS: The addition of the F309S mutation to a previously described FVIII variant increased FVIII secretion by 4.5 fold. Moreover, the addition of betaine or sodium-4-phenylbutyrate increased the secretion rate of FVIIIÄB proteins in HEK 293 cells, but the same effect was not seen for FVIIIÄB-F309S indicating that all the recombinant protein produced had been efficiently secreted. CONCLUSION: Bioengineering factor VIII expressed in human cells may lead to an efficient production of recombinant factor VIII and contribute toward low-cost coagulation factor replacement therapy for hemophilia A. FVIII-F309S produced in human cells can be effective in vivo.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the possibility that CdCl2 induces autophagy and apoptosis in HEK293 cells,and the role of extracellular regulated protein kinases (ERK1/2) and AKT proteins in autophagy. METHODS Green fluorescence protein(GFP)-light chain 3B(LC3B)expression plasmid was transfected into HEK293 cells. After 24 h,HEK293 cells were induced with CdCl2 2,4,8 and 10μmol·L-1 for 12 h. The expression of GFP-LC3B was detected by fluorescent microscopy. HEK293 cells were induced with CdCl2 2,4,8 and 10μmol · L-1 without transfection of GFP-LC3B for 12 h while autophagic vacuoles were observed by transmission electron microscopy. The expression of LC3B-Ⅱ/Ⅰproteins and the phosphorylation levels of ERK1/2 and AKT were analyzed by Western blotting. Apoptosis was detected by flow cytometry microscopy. HEK293 cells were treated with 3-MA 20μmol · L-1+CdCl2 10 μmol · L-1 for 12 h before cleaved caspase 3 protein was detected by Western blotting. RESULTS When HEK293 cells were exposed to CdCl2(≤10μmol · L-1)for 12 h,cytoplasmic GFP-LC3B punctuates were observed under the fluorescence microscope,and autophagic vacuoles were observed under an electron microscope. The expression of LC3B-Ⅱ/Ⅰ,p-ERK1/2 and p-AKT proteins was significantly increased in CdCl2-induced cells(P<0.05,P<0.01). Moreover,apoptosis was observed. The addition of 3-MA 20μmol · L-1+CdCl2 10μmol · L-1 enhanced apoptosis. Cleaved capase 3 protein expression was significantly increased(P<0.01). CONCLUSION CdCl2(≤10μmol·L-1)can induce autophagy in HEK293 cells. ERK1/2 and AKT proteins might be associated with the activation of autophagy that is accompanied by apoptosis,suggesting that autophagy can inhibit apoptosis at certain concentrations of CdCl2.

ABSTRACT

Neferine, a bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid in Lotus Plumule, was proved to have a wide range of biological activities. In the present study, using whole-cell patch-clamp technique, we investigated the effects of neferine on Nav1.5 channels that are stably expressed in HEK 293 cells. We found that neferine potently and reversibly inhibited Nav1.5 currents in a concentration dependent manner with a half-maximal inhibition (IC50) being 26.15 μmol/L. The inhibitory effects of neferine on Nav1.5 currents were weaker than those of quinidine at the same concentration. The steady-state inactivation curve was significantly shifted towards hyperpolarizing direction in the presence of 30 μmol/L neferine, while the voltage-dependent activation was unaltered. Neferine prolonged the time to peak of activation, increased the inactivation time constants of Nav1.5 currents and markedly slowed the recovery from inactivation. The inhibitory effect of neferine could be potentiated in a frequency-dependent manner. These results suggested that neferine can block Nav1.5 channels under the open state and inactivating state and it is an open channel blocker of Nav1.5 channels.

ABSTRACT

AIM:To study the effects of extracellular potassium on the protein expression of wild-type HERG and its mutant L539fs/47.METHODS:Wild-type HERG (WT) or its mutant HERG-L539fs/47 (MT) were transfected into HEK293 cells for 36 h.The cells were incubated in different media containing 0.8, 4.3 or 10 mmol/L potassium.Af-ter 6 h of incubation, the protein expression of HERG was detected by flow cytometry.After 12 h of incubation, the locali-zation and quantity of the proteins were detected by laser confocal imaging and Western blot.RESULTS: Different from the retention of mutant protein in cytoplasm, wild-type HERG protein was mainly distributed in the cell membrane.The 2 proteins both increased with the changes of extracellular potassium.Flow cytometry showed that the fluorescence in the 2 groups both increased with the changes of extracellular potassium ( P<0.01 ) .The fluorescence in WT group was signifi-cantly higher than that in MT group (P<0.01).Western blot showed that mutant HERG protein included only one 60 kD band, different from the 135 kD and 155 kD bands in wild-type HERG, which were affected by the changes of extracellular potassium (P<0.05).CONCLUSION:The retention of HERG mutant L539fs/47 protein in the cytoplasm is more than wild-type HERG.Chronic high extracellular potassium keeps the stability of wild-type and mutant HERG proteins on the cell membrane.Chronic low potassium reduces the expression of HERG channel proteins in a time-dependent manner.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND:Reprogramming somatic cells to generate pluripotent stem cells has a wide application in biomedical research. OBJECTIVE:To analyze the effect of different molecular weight proteins in chicken egg-white extract to elevate expression of pluripotent genes Oct-3/4 and Nanog in 293T cells. METHODS:The extracts of chicken egg-white were separated into more than 3 ku and less than 3 ku ingredients to be used for co-culture with 293T cells. There were four groups, 1×105 293T cells per wel , total 500μL. In the control group, 500μL culture medium was added;in the other three groups, 500μL chicken egg-white extract, more than 3 ku and less than 3 ku ingredients were respectively added. Quantitative PCR was used to determine the relative expression levels of pluripotent genes Nanog and Oct-3/4 in 293T cells. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:By using co-culture method, more than 3 ku ingredients have a role to increase the expression of pluripotent genes Oct-3/4 and Nanog, but less than 3 ku ingredients cannot elevate the expression of pluripotent genes. This indicates that the ingredient of chicken egg-white extract to elevate the expression of pluripotent genes is more than 3 ku proteins.
