Early use of targeted radionuclide therapy (TRT) to eradicate disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) might offer cure. Selection of appropriate radionuclides is required. This work highlights the potential of 103Pd (T1/2 = 16.991 d) which decays to 103mRh (T1/2 = 56.12 min) then to stable 103Rh with emission of Auger and conversion electrons. Methods: The Monte Carlo track structure code CELLDOSE was used to assess absorbed doses in single cells (14-μm diameter; 10-μm nucleus) and clusters of 19 cells. The radionuclide was distributed on the cell surface, within the cytoplasm, or in the nucleus.....
Rationale: The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) functions in the regulation of intestinal inflammation, but knowledge of the underlying mechanisms in innate immune cells is limited. Here, we investigated the role of AhR in modulating the functions of macrophages in inflammatory bowel disease pathogenesis. Methods: The cellular composition of intestinal lamina propria CD45+ leukocytes in a dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced mouse colitis model was determined by single-cell RNA sequencing. Macrophage pyroptosis was quantified by analysis of lactate dehydrogenase release, propidium iodide staining,....
