NR1D1 controls skeletal muscle calcium homeostasis through myoregulin repression
The sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) plays an important role in calcium homeostasis. SR calcium mishandling is described in pathological conditions, such as myopathies. Here, we investigated whether the nuclear receptor subfamily 1 group D member (NR1D1, also called REV-ERBα) regulates skeletal muscle SR calcium homeostasis. Our data demonstrate that NR1D1 deficiency in mice impaired sarco/endoplasmic reticulum calcium ATPase-dependent (SERCA-dependent) SR calcium uptake...

Slow Wave Sleep Deficits in the Flinders Sensitive Line Rodent Model of Depression: Effects of Medial Forebrain Bundle Deep-Brain Stimulation
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is an affective disorder typically accompanied by sleep disturbances. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) is an emerging intervention for treatment-resistant depression, but its effect on sleep has not been closely examined. Here we aimed to characterise sleep deficits in the Flinders sensitive line, an established rodent model of depression, and investigate the consequences of MFB stimulation on sleep-related phenotypes...

Integrated molecular and pharmacological characterization of patient-derived xenografts from bladder and ureteral cancers identifies new potential therapies
Muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) and upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) are molecularly heterogeneous. Despite chemotherapies, immunotherapies, or anti-fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) treatments, these tumors are still of a poor outcome. Our objective was to develop a bank of patient-derived xenografts (PDXs) recapitulating the molecular heterogeneity of MIBC and UTUC, to facilitate the preclinical identification of therapies...

Immunoscore Is Prognostic in Low-Risk and High-Risk Stage III Colon Carcinomas Treated With Adjuvant Infusional Fluorouracil, Leucovorin, and Oxaliplatin in a Phase III Trial
The recommended duration of adjuvant fluoropyrimidine and oxaliplatin chemotherapy for patients with stage III colon cancer is based on tumor classification into clinically low-risk (T1-3 N1) and high-risk (T4 or N2) groups. We determined whether Immunoscore can enhance prognostication within these risk groups....

Predictive biomarkers for personalized medicine in breast cancer
Breast cancer is one of the most frequent malignancies among women worldwide. Based on clinical and molecular features of breast tumors, patients are treated with chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and/or radiotherapy and more recently with immunotherapy or targeted therapy. These different therapeutic options have markedly improved patient outcomes. However, further improvement is needed to fight against resistance to treatment...

Dysfunction of calcium-regulated exocytosis at a single-cell level causes catecholamine hypersecretion in patients with pheochromocytoma
Neuroendocrine tumors constitute a heterogeneous group of tumors arising from hormone-secreting cells and are generally associated with a dysfunction of secretion. Pheochromocytoma (Pheo) is a neuroendocrine tumor that develops from chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla, and is responsible for an excess of catecholamine secretion leading to severe clinical symptoms such as hypertension, elevated stroke risk and various cardiovascular complications. Surprisingly, while the hypersecretory activity of Pheo is well known to pathologists and clinicians, it has never been carefully explored at the cellular and molecular levels...
