Rationale: Nab-paclitaxel (Abx) is widely employed in malignant tumor therapy. In tumor cells and pro-tumoral M2-type macrophages, the IL4 receptor (IL4R) is upregulated. This study aimed to elucidate the selective delivery of Abx to M2-type macrophages by targeting IL4R and reprogramming them into an anti-tumoral M1-type. Methods: Abx was conjugated with the IL4R-binding IL4RPep-1 peptide using click chemistry (IL4R-Abx). Cellular internalization, macrophage reprogramming and signal pathways, and tumor growth and metastasis by IL4R-Abx were examined. Results: IL4R-Abx was internalized into M2....
Rationale: Pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic progressive lung disease with limited therapeutic options. We previously revealed that there is iron deposition in alveolar epithelial type II cell (AECII) in pulmonary fibrosis, which can be prevented by the iron chelator deferoxamine. However, iron in the cytoplasm and the mitochondria has two relatively independent roles and regulatory systems. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of mitochondrial iron deposition in AECII injury and pulmonary fibrosis, and to find potential therapeutic strategies. Methods: BLM-treated mice, MLE-12 cells,....
