    • Chlamydia pneumoniae hijacks a host autoregulatory IL-1β loop to drive foam cell formation and accelerate atherosclerosis 

      Tumurkhuu, G.; Dagvadorj, J.; Porritt, R. A.; Crother, T. R.; Shimada, K.; Tarling, E. J.; Erbay, E.; Arditi, M.; Chen, S. (Cell Press, 2018)
      Pathogen burden accelerates atherosclerosis, but the mechanisms remain unresolved. Activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome is linked to atherogenesis. Here we investigated whether Chlamydia pneumoniae (C.pn) infection engages ...
    • Inositol‐requiring enzyme‐1 regulates phosphoinositide signaling lipids and macrophage growth 

      Hamid, S. M.; Çıtır, M.; Terzi, E. M.; Çimen, İ.; Yıldırım, Zehra; Doğan, Aslı Ekin; Kocatürk, B.; Onat, Umut Inci; Arditi, M.; Weber, C.; Traynor‐Kaplan, A.; Schultz, C.; Erbay, E. (Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2020-11)
      The ER‐bound kinase/endoribonuclease (RNase), inositol‐requiring enzyme‐1 (IRE1), regulates the phylogenetically most conserved arm of the unfolded protein response (UPR). However, the complex biology and pathology regulated ...
    • Intercepting the lipid-induced integrated stress response reduces atherosclerosis 

      Onat, Umut I.; Yıldırım, Aslı D.; Tufanlı, Özlem; Çimen, İsmail; Kocatürk, Begüm; Veli, Zehra; Hamid, S.; Shimada, K.; Chen, S.; Sin, J.; Shah, P.; Gottlieb, R.; Arditi, M.; Erbay, Ebru (Elsevier, 2019)
      Background Eukaryotic cells can respond to diverse stimuli by converging at serine-51 phosphorylation on eukaryotic initiation factor 2 alpha (eIF2α) and activate the integrated stress response (ISR). This is a key step ...
