MLKL, the Protein that Mediates Necroptosis, Also Regulates Endosomal Trafficking and Extracellular Vesicle Generation.

Immunity | Jul 18, 2017

Activation of the pseudokinase mixed lineage kinase domain-like (MLKL) upon its phosphorylation by the protein kinase RIPK3 triggers necroptosis, a form of programmed cell death in which rupture of cellular membranes yields release of intracellular components. We report that MLKL also associated with endosomes and controlled the transport of endocytosed proteins, thereby enhancing degradation of receptors and ligands, modulating their induced signaling and facilitating the generation of extracellular vesicles. This role was exerted on two quantitative grades: a constitutive one independent of RIPK3, and an enhanced one, triggered by RIPK3, where the association of MLKL with the endosomes was enhanced, and it was found to bind endosomal sorting complexes required for transport (ESCRT) proteins and the flotillins and to be excluded, together with them, from cells within vesicles. We suggest that release of phosphorylated MLKL within extracellular vesicles serves as a mechanism for self-restricting the necroptotic activity of this protein.

Imaris

Interactive Vision In The Life SciencesCombining speed, precision and ease-of-use, Imaris provides an impressive range of capabilities for working with three-dimensional images. Move easily between simple and advanced 3D views. Use flexible editing and processing functions, such as interactive surface rendering and object slicing capabilities. And output to standard TIFF, Quicktime and AVI formats. Imaris accepts virtually all image formats that are used in confocal microscopy and many of those used in wide-field image acquisition.BitPlane, Inc. also releases the following companion products:- ImarisXT is a multi-functional two-way interface from Imaris to both classic programming languages and to Matlab.- Imaris MeasurementPro and Imaris Track provide the ability to segment and follow the movement of independent objects in a 3D image over time. Objects can either be Surface Objects or Spots, created automatically or manually.- ImarisColoc enables users to easily isolate, visualize, and quantify regional overlap in 3D and 4D images and automates the process of selecting colocalized image areas.

Addgene

A non-profit plasmid repository dedicated to helping scientists around the world share high-quality plasmids. They work with laboratories to assemble a high-quality library of published and useful plasmids and their associated cloning/sequence data for use in research and discovery. By linking plasmids with articles, scientists can always find data related to the materials they request. There is no cost to deposit plasmids to Addgene and it will store samples in triplicate (including one at an offsite backup facility), sequence key regions for validation, and handle the appropriate Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs) with institutions. Additionally, users can create a webpage that directs scientists to request plasmids. Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs) allow open exchange to occur because they offer intellectual property and liability protection for material providers. Institutions that have deposited materials at Addgene require a MTA for each transfer of material.
