siRNA-mediated knockdown against NUF2 suppresses pancreatic cancer proliferation in vitro and in vivo
Peng Hu, Xi Chen, Jing Sun, Ping Bie and Lei-Da Zhang
NUF2 is overexpressed in pancreatic cancer tissues and cell lines. This study showed that siRNA-mediated knockdown against NUF2 resulted in a significant reduction in pancreatic cancer cell growth both in vitro and in vivo, and indicates that NUF2 may be a promising therapeutic target in pancreatic cancer.

Pink1 protects cortical neurons from thapsigargin-induced oxidative stress and neuronal apoptosis
Lin Li and Guo ku Hu
Pink1 has a physiological role in mitochondrial maintenance, suppressing mitochondrial oxidative stress, fission, and autophagy. This study indicates that thapsigargin induced oxidative stress and neuronal apoptosis in cultured neurons is at least partly mediated via inactivation of Pink1.

Upcoming meetings

ABC Transporters A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting - ABC Transporters: from mechanism to organism
ABC transporters are one of the largest families of membrane proteins and their diverse functions underpin numerous key physiological processes, as well as being causative factors in a number of clinically relevant pathologies. This meeting will focus on the mechanisms of ABC transporters and how this is integral to their effects on organism and cell biology.
The meeting will be preceded by a workshop that will offer specialist discussion sessions on all aspects of membrane transport research to a limited number of attendees.
