Catalase, the antioxidant heme enzyme one of three subgroups related to catalase deficiency in humans modulating the normal catalase reaction dependent on NADPH-binding catalases for function.

Catalase (CAT) is converted by decomposition and intracellular localization relationships of the main cellular antioxidant enzyme system like superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxiredoxins (Prdx), and glutathione peroxidase (GPX) are peroxisomal matrix enzymes in the cytoplasm, translocated to the peroxisomes to catalyze hydrogen peroxide H2O2 which is decomposed to oxygen and water, locus: 11p13 (§, ). Unlike catalase, the objective of this communication, SOD which prevents the formation of Hydroxyl radicals – (HRGT) determined from constant of O2.- dismutation, and generation of reversibly inactive (CAT)-compound II, Panax ginseng could induce both transcription factors. Catalase is  composed of four identical subunits each of the subunits binds one heme-containing active site, and produces two catalase compounds HPI and HPII (PDB: 1p80) is flipped 180 degrees » with respect to the orientation of the heme related to the « root mean square to the structure of catalase, (Mutation Location) from peroxisomal catalases inactive state in compound II NADP+(H) binding pockets inverted remains similar to the structure of the wild type (Val111, PDB:1A4E, KatG) orientation on the heme proximal (PDB: 1GGK) side, inactivate catalase can be prevented by melatonin. Catalase (CAT; EC a  free radical scavenging enzyme (FRSE) is a scavenger of H2O2. Protoporphyrin – (ZnPPIX) (PDB: 1H6N), from a heme group of the ‘heme-pathway, which forms catalase,’ is a scavenger of antioxidant (HO-1-HMOX1) heme oxygenase, involving ROS. Catalase is part of the enzymatic defense system constituting the primary defense against ROS, zinc protoporphyrin IX (ZnPPIX) is an inhibitor of (HO-1) heme oxygenase. Catalase protects the cell from oxidative damage by the accumulation of cellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation systems, those peroxisomal enzymes that breaks down hydrogen peroxide after H(2)O(2) exposure, and thereby mitigates* (some contradictory* results) the toxic effects of hydrogen peroxide. In the process (The typical hydroperoxidases (CAT) known as Compound I) of the substrate of catalase, NADP+ (an inactive state, compound II) is replaced by another molecule of NADP(H) to provide protection of catalase against inactivation by (H2O2) hydrogen peroxide. Erythrocyte  [Human erythrocyte catalase (HEC), The NADPH-binding sites were empty – PDB: 1F4J, 1QQW] and plasma indices (enzymatic-antioxidants) initially implies the thiobarbituric acid-reacting substances (TBARS) based on reaction with hydroxyl radicals (OH) can release thiobarbituric acid, TBAR inhibition measures malondialdehyde (MDA – impact of coenzyme Q10) correlated (with MPO-myeloperoxidase activity -generating ROS) as co-variable, by which mulberry leaf polysaccharide (MLPII) via the decomposition of (certain) MDA, products of lipid peroxidation (LPO) were reduced. Comparisons were to specific activities of catalase (SNP) single nucleotide polymorphisms (CAT-C-262 (rs1001179) the low-risk allele) of genetic variants in both, promoter a common C/T polymorphism (262-C/T), and in nineexonic – regions and its boundaries, occur frequently associated distally in genomic mutations, similar to those of normal catalase demonstrating changes in catalase protein level targeted to the peroxisomal matrix. The 262-C/T CAT low-risk allele is hypothetically related to the lower risk variant allele CAT Tyr308 G to A point mutation ineducable in the Japanese acatalasemia allele. The common C/T polymorphism can be targeted by dietary and/or pharmacological antioxidants, and the endogenous antioxidant defense enzymes concentration can prevent cellular lipid (LPO) peroxidative reactions occurring. Catalase is a homotetramer complex of 4 identical monofunctional subunits. Catalase is located at the peroxisome of human cells associated with several (PBDs)-peroxisomal biogenesis disorders commonly caused by mutations in the PEX genes, peroxisomal targeting signal 1 (PTS1) protein affecting in peroxisomal biogenesis, the monomeric to homotetrameric transition in the forms of peroxisome biogenesis disorder. PBDs also include Acatalasemia the only disease known to be caused by the (CAT) gene. In human catalase, the antioxidant heme enzyme, is localized in the cytoplasm to the peroxisome, nucleus, or linked with mitochondria which in most cells lack catalase (Peroxisomes do not contain DNA), its mitochondrial fraction (microperoxisome), a secondary phenomena shows physiological decline, aging and age-related reactions in mitochondrial function and disfunction. NADPH is required for the prevention of forming an inactive state of the enzyme. Antioxidative defence mechanisms, capacity and redox cycle enzyme activities increasing with Tc treatment Tinospora cordifolia (Tc), T and B cells and antibody. Both RBCs and plasma were measured on parameters of oxidative stress. Syzygium cumini aqueous leaves extract (ASc) was able to remove oxidant species in a hyperglycemic state generated in red blood cells RBC-CAT levels. Catalase alone is unable to prevent in a hyperglycemic state. Macrophages recruit other types of immune cells such as lymphocytes white blood cells (WBCs).  Catalase is dependent on the family of NADPH-binding catalases for function, the prevention and reversal of inactivation by its toxic substrate (H2O2) hydrogen peroxide. Amyloid-beta binds catalase and inhibits (H2O2) hydrogen peroxide, a reactive oxygen species, breakdown through efficient dismutation, and malonaldelhyde (MDA) determined in plasma, as well as another member of the oxidoreductase family, myeloperoxidase (MPO (EC converting H(2)O(2), the reducing equivalents produces (HOCl) hypochlorous acid a mechanism of cell-mediated antimicrobial immune defense for monofunctional catalases one of three subgroups related to catalase deficiency in humans, in micro-organisms manganese-containing catalases (‘large catalases’) determining in part the bifunctional activity of (KatG, PDB:1X7U) represented by bifunctional (heme) catalase-peroxidase based Bacterial-resistance mechanisms. Peroxiredoxins (Prxs, EC, bifunctional catalase-peroxidases (KatGs) two organelle systems are antioxidant enzymes of the peroxiredoxin family that oxidize and reduce H(2)O(2) hydrogen peroxide thereby modulating the catalase reaction, KatGs are not found in plants and animals. Trx (thioredoxin) a redox-regulating protein also controls the antioxidant enzyme activity of the main cellular antioxidant enzymes (AOE) superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase.

Tyrosine-protein kinase JAK1

JAK1 PTK domain in complex with two JAK inhibitorsThe Janus kinase family, Type I and II cytokine receptors is immediately N-terminal to the PTK domain  1p31.3: [§§]. And JAK2 in the interferon-gamma pathway PTK activity is located in the C-terminal PTK‘-like domain has a negative role of an intrinsic JAK inhibitor suppressor of cytokine signaling (Cordyceps bassiana‘ may contain more than one active component as a multi-utility ethnomedicinal herbal) of a variable N-terminal region target sufficient for binding to a biotinylated* peptide on the cytokine receptor OSMR/gp130 and a C-terminal signaling cascade SOCS box of the OSMR box1/2 region. Suppressor Of Cytokine Signaling (SOCS) negatively regulate the Janus kinase, or inhibited enterovirus-induced signaling of JAK and activators of transcription (STAT) pathway, may be, the molecular site of action of taxifolin []. And myricetin could directly bind to JAK1/STAT3 molecules, these are the ‘softmolecular drug targets modality for immunosuppression. SOCS regulate JAK and EGFR signaling pathways, and LIF activated STAT of which SOCS-3 is a member and targeted IFN response factor 1- and class II transactivator-dependent and independent promoters, by suppressing the Janus**’* kinase-signal transducer ** and activator of transcription (JAK-STAT) pathway. Janus tyrosine kinase2 (TYK2), Jamip1 (Jak and microtubule interacting protein) associates via its C-terminal region activating multiple signaling (phosphorlration) pathways in parallel in HTLV-I infected T cells to facilitate* oncogenic transformation.  (JAK)-STAT cytokine-induced pathway proteins may influence GHR signalling other peripheral** effects*(the leptin (Ob) antiapoptotic effect, critical to both ‘innate’ and adaptive immunity), and in human liver, in NF‘-kappaB activation by IFN (alpha) and IFN-gamma cytokine receptor family along with subunit IFNGR by formation of inhibitory complexes subunit IFNAR binding to its specific cell surface receptor and activator of transcription, signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) pathway tyk, of STAT3 upstream kinases. JAK1 was stably associated with STAT3. IL-6 induces activation of JAK1 and JAK2 in human B cell lines. JAK/STAT signaling has been attributed to direct transcriptional regulation by STAT of specific target genes. Stat proteins are substrates of the Jak protein tyrosine kinases.

Image via Wikipedia

Oncostatin M is a member of the IL-6 family of cytokines. OSM regulates the growth and differentiation of a number of tumor and normal cells. OSM, like LIF, is located on human chromosome 22, human OSM activates the LIF receptor heterodimer, containing defined regions of human chromosome 2q12.2: [§§]. OSM exclusively uses the OSMR* Oncostatin M receptor  composed of a binding subunit gp 130 heterodimer in signaling events related to leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) such as morphological changes upon soft agar colony formation. 4 molecules are structurally related to modulate differentiation of a variety of cell types to monocyte and from blood neutrophils and [À] Post-exercise infused *PMNs, C-terminal process functional changes induced by OSM (can hepcidin induce expression) to, endothelium along with basic epithelial tissues suggesting dedifferentiation of adipocytes, and  chondrocytes that OSM favors. gp130/OSMR is the only receptor complex to stimulate osteoprogenitor differentiation; binding to both gp130/LIFlow-affinity receptor beta  and gp130/OSM receptor beta heterocomplexes. Which trigger similar biological responses because they share gp130 as a common signal transducing transmembrane receptor. As well as cytolinkers induced by OSM, are inhibited by antibodies against gp130, the LDLR promoter (low density lipoprotein receptor)  repeat 3 sequence is identical to the repeats 1, 2, 3 TATA vector (pLDLR-R3) a cytokine-inducible immediate early gene promoter provides the C-terminal process where Egr1 may have a functional role in OM-induced upregulation of LDLR. The OM-responsive element that precedes and accompanies glycoprotein (gp)130 ligand family member cytokine OSM inhibitors. The gp130/OSMRbeta complex regulates PBEF and is activated by OSM only. Curcumin ((AP-1 inhibitor) diferuloylmethane), suppresses OSM-stimulated STAT1 phosphorylation, Piceatannol also inhibited OSM-induced VEGF mRNA expression. Forskolin induces OSM expression from outside the cell across the membrane to the inside of the cell. The combination of OSM and IL-1beta‘s functional effects Curcumin also inhibited within the CNS and synergy of other IL-6 family cytokines, production through a mechanism* (an inductor upregulated HGF [Hepatocyte growth factor] mRNA) requiring the synthesis or activation of a secondary mediating factor or as a pathway  utilized in various combinations with (bacterially expressed) hexameric ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) . Anabolic growth factors can protect cartilage against OSM+TNF alpha induced destruction.  This effect is mediated by the transcription 3 (‘STAT 3’) binding to Parthenolide an OSM-responsive element.

Leukemia inhibitory factor LIF and the presence of other growth factors at the interface of a shared cell-surface signaling receptor.

LIF as prototypes (neurally active cytokine LIF), four helix bundle cytokines form, a functional receptor complexA protein variously termed leukemia inhibitory factor LIF locus : 22q12.2 [§§], exhibits pleiotropic biological activities, it plays a critical role in several endocrine functions including acting in synergy with other cytokines LIF and  BMP2 [2.] being in the centre of interest for doping abusers, equivalent to that observed in the presence of LIF alone and the presence of other growth factors. At the fetal-maternal interface on embryonic stem cells pluripotency to namely, extravillous cells of the anchoring villi induce astrocytes in cooperative signaling of LIF, and bone morphogenic proteins (BMP‘s) provides therapeutic targets to regulate ovarian function of the primordial follicles early in ovarian development and transition to the primary follicle [3.] at the maternalfetal interface signaling maintaining early pregnancy through Lif mediated in a paracrine way by uterine factors and in an autocrine way by trophoblastic factors. LIF is expressed early in human fetal pituitary development. LIF potently induces pituitary proopiomelanocortin (POMC) gene (HPA axis) hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis transcription. LIF as prototypes for inhibitors targeting cytokin potently induces pituitary proopiomelanes (neurally active cytokine LIF), four helix bundle cytokines form, a functional receptor complex that act through a common heterodimeric* receptor composed of its receptor Lifr involved in binding the gp130 co-receptor on 3T3L1 cell extracts (bacterially expressed) at the interface of a shared cell-surface signaling receptor, (Glycoprotein 130) gp130dependent macrophage-mediated procoagulant function sensitive to hirudin and heparin-releasable mimetics induction of sympathetic substance P (SP) requires OSM, and  is structurally and functionally related to LIF. It induces a switch in neurotransmitter phenotype from adrenergic to cholinergic, identical to the signal transducing subunit of the IL-6 receptor, gp130 heterodimer* pathway, capable of binding this VIP reporter gene of the enteric nervous system induction and LIF activated STAT [1.] factors the Janus kinase-signal transducers and activators of transcription (Jak-Stat) via JAK2/STAT3 functional homodimer* pathway. (STAT) site of the promoter region induced by OSM and LIF activation, when mutated the hepcidin promoters several mutations (result in the development of anemia, and may play a role in the attraction of monocytes to the injured glomerulus) in hepcidins effect was markedly reduced, IL-4 and IL-10 cytokines have opposite effects (axotomy [4.] comparable to a retinoic acid responsive gene) on human pregnancy (IUGR), and preeclampsia (PE).  Oncostatin M (OSM) and and interleukin-6 are closely related cytokines, gp130 is required for signal transduction by these cytokines to which other subunits are added to modify ligand specificity. CNTF and LIF induce transcription of the VIP and other neuropeptide genes others appear to overlap and complement those of the neurotrophins.
