Ischaemic preconditioning is a method of protecting tissue against ischaemia-reperfusion injury. It is an innate protective mechanism that increases a tissue's tolerance to prolonged ischaemia when it is first subjected to short burst of ischaemia and reperfusion. It is thought to provide this protection by increasing the tissue's tolerance to ischaemia, therby reducing oxidative stress, inflammation and apoptosis in the preconditioned tissue.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a refractory and lethal interstitial lung disease characterized by alveolar epithelial cells apoptosis, fibroblast proliferation and extra-cellular matrix proteins deposition. Epstein - Barr virus (EBV) has previously been localised to alveolar epithelial cells of IPF patients. In this study we utilised a microarray based differential gene expression analysis strategy to identify potential molecular drivers of EBV associated lung fibrosis. We employed an alveolar epithelial cell line infected with EBV (A-Akata). Lytic phase infection induced in the A-Akata cells by TPA/BA treatment resulted in increase of TGFbeta1 and TIEG1 mRNA expression. Treatment of the A-Akata cells with ganciclovir,

RNA expression was measured by RNA-seq in Drosophila ML-DmBG3-c2 cells depleted for proteins involved in sister chromatid cohesion, and in developing third instar wing discs with or withough brca2 gene mutations Overall design: RNA expression in depleted cells was compared to mock treated cells and RNA expression in wing discs from brca2 mutant Drosophila was compared to expression in wing discs without brca2 mutations This series includes mock RNAi treated samples re-used from GSE100547.

The receptor-interacting protein-associated ICH-1/CED-3 homologous protein with a death domain (Raidd) functions as a dual adaptor protein due to its bipartite nature, and is therefore thought to be a constituent of different multiprotein complexes including the PIDDosome, where it connects the cell death-related protease, Caspase-2, with the p53-induced protein with a death domain 1 (Pidd1). As such, Raidd has been implicated in DNA-damage-induced apoptosis as well as in tumor suppression, the latter based on its role as a direct activator of Caspase-2, known to delay lymphomagenesis caused by overexpression of c-Myc or loss of ATM kinase. As loss of Caspase-2 leads to an acceleration of tumor onset in the E-Myc mouse model we set out to interrogate the role of Raidd in this process in more detail. Our data obtained analyzing E-Myc/Raidd-/- mice indicate that Raidd is unable to protect from c-MYC-driven lymphomagenesis. Similarly, we failed to observe an effect of Raidd-deficiency on thymic lymphomagenesis induced by y-irradiation or fibrosarcoma development driven by 3-methylcholanthrene. The role of Caspase-2 as a tumor suppressor can therefore be uncoupled from its ability to interact and auto-activate upon binding to Raidd. Further, we provide supportive evidence that the tumor suppressive role of Caspase-2 is related to maintaining genomic integrity and allowing efficient p53-mediated signaling. Overall, our findings suggest that Raidd, although described to be the key-adapter allowing activation of the tumor suppressor Caspase-2, fails to suppress tumorigenesis in vivo.
The tumor-modulatory effects of Caspase-2 and Pidd1 do not require the scaffold protein Raidd.
