Allosteric Inhibition of the IRE1α RNase Preserves Cell Viability and Function during Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress

Summary of Study Depending on endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress levels, the ER transmembrane multidomain protein IRE1α promotes either adaptation or apoptosis. Unfolded ER proteins cause IRE1α lumenal domain homo-oligomerization, inducing trans autophosphorylation that further drives homo-oligomerization of its cytosolic kinase/endoribonuclease (RNase) domains to activate mRNA splicing of adaptive XBP1 transcription factor. However,...

Project Summary While viruses cause significant proportion of cancers, their real impact in cancer etiology and complications is still unknown. Indeed, viruses may be implicated in cancer more frequently than previously considered, which may lead to rethinking cancer treatment and prevention strategies. Little effort so far has been exerted to screen for infectious agents associated with cancer. Our long-term goal is to determine how...
