Lab. Invest. 98(4), 489–99. β-Ecdysterone protects SH-SY5Y cells against β-amyloid-induced apoptosis via c-Jun N-terminal kinase- and Akt-associated complementary pathways. 2018

Xu T., Niu C., Zhang X., Dong M.

Notes: The significant loss of estrogen in women after menopause has been linked to increased incidence of Alzheimer’s disease. Here, the protective effect of β-ecdysterone (β-Ecd) on SH-SY5Y cell apoptosis in relation to Alzheimer’s disease is investigated. NF-κB and estrogen receptor activation was monitored in the presence of β-Ecd in Aβ-stress conditions using the Dual-Glo® Luciferase Assay System. Caspase activation was measured as a proxy for cell stress and apoptosis. Together, SH-SY5Y cell treatment with β-Ecd showed a protective effect, making β-Ecd a promising therapeutic candidate.

Sprangers, M.C., Lakhai, W., Koudstaal, W., Verhoeven, M., Koel, B.F., Vogels, R., Goudsmit, J., Havenga, M.J. and Kostense, S.

Notes: To help determine the usefulness of a recombinant Adenovirus for gene delivery and vaccination, the authors compared various methods to determine the amount of anti-Adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5) neutralizing activity present in human sera. This study describes a system using firefly luciferase in Ad5 vector to infect A549 human lung carcinoma cells.  Using a range of 8,000 to 5 virus particles/cell, the Ad5-luciferase was added to 104 cells/well in a 96-well plate in a total volume of 200µl. After 24 hours, the medium was discarded, and 100µl of PBS was added to each well followed by 100µl Steady-Glo® Luciferase Assay Reagent. After 15 minutes incubation at room temperature, 100µl from each well was transferred to a black and white isoplate and luminescence was measured on a 1450 Microbeta Trilux. An alternate neutralization assay method used the MTT-based CellTiter 96® Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay to score the Ad-mediated cytopathic effect by staining for viable cells and subsequent analysis of optical density.

Notes: The 2.5S Nerve Growth Factor was used to culture rat dorsal root ganglia neurons. The primary rat cells were infected with an adenovirus expressing E. coli β-galactosidase (lacZ) and the enzyme was detected by immunocytochemistry with the Anti-β-Galactosidase mAb. Primary cells infected with either an HSP27 adenovirus or LacZ adenovirus were withdrawn from NGF and survival assayed 48 hours later with the CellTiter 96® Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay. Only those cells expressing HSP27 showed some survival and percent survival was dependent upon the multiplicity of infection. (0788)

J. Biol. Chem. 274, 20127-20132. c-E10 is a caspase-recruiting domain-containing protein that interacts with components of death receptors signaling pathway and activates nuclear factor-κB 1999

Contanzo, A., Guiet, C., Vito, P.

Notes: The authors identified c-E10, a protein that has an N-terminal caspase-recruiting domain, in a screen for molecules involved in regulation of death receptor signaling pathways. A cDNA encoding viral-E10 was transcribed and translated in vitro using Promega TNT Coupled Reticulocyte Lysate Systems. Additionally, HeLa cells were transfected with a variety of cDNAs together with a β-galactosidase reporter gene, treated with TNFα, and then assayed for cell death using the CellTiter® Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay. Expression of c-E10 did not affect the ability of TNFα to induce apoptosis in the transfected cells.  The authors also used the Luciferase Assay System to assess NF-κB activation in the transfected cells.
