Congratulations to Dr. Shiwei Zhu's published paper on Native architecture of a human GBP1 defense complex for cell-autonomous immunity to infection in the Journal of Science.
May 13, 2024

Human cells have many mechanisms to detect and respond to bacterial and viral intruders. Proteins that recognize bacterial cell wall components can coat the surface of invading bacteria and serve as a scaffold for the assembly of signaling proteins and antimicrobial enzymes.

Osei-Owusu Lab publishes Phosphodiesterases Mediate the Augmentation of Myogenic Constriction by Inhibitory G Protein Signaling and is Negatively Modulated by the Dual Action of RGS2 and 5
May 13, 2024

G protein regulation by regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins play a key role in vascular tone maintenance. The loss of Gi/o and Gq/11 regulation by RGS2 and RGS5 in non-pregnant mice is implicated in augmented vascular tone and decreased uterine blood flow (UBF). RGS2 and 5 are closely related and co-expressed in uterine arteries (UA).

Congratulations to Dr. Osei-Owusu's joint paper on Mitochondrial fission inhibition protects against hypertension induced by angiotensin II
May 13, 2024

Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in various types of cardiovascular disease including hypertension. Mitochondrial fission fusion balance is critical to mitochondrial quality control, whereas enhanced fission has been reported in several models of cardiovascular disease.

Recently funded NIDDK R25 grant - PHOL 429 Biophysical modeling and simulation of cellular transport
Dec. 4, 2023

A team of investigators from CWRU (Rossana Occhipinti, PhD and Walter Boron, MD, PhD), UCSD (Maryann Martone, PhD and Jeffrey Grethe, PhD) and University of Auckland (Peter Hunter, PhD, Bernard deBono, MD, PhD, and David Nickerson, PhD) has been recently awarded a five-year Research Education Grant (R25) from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The grant, “FAIR DOs: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable Development of Open Simulations”, will support the development of a research education program in computational modeling of the neural regulation of transport processes by digestive and renal epithelia, as we leverage teaching structures at CWRU as well as Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC)-generated resources.

The ultimate goal of the program is to train the next generation of researchers and clinicians in the use and development of FAIR computational models, thereby promoting a spirit of openness and collegiality within the NIDDK-funded research community.
