Article Title: TRPM7 Kinase Is Essential for Neutrophil Recruitment and Function via Regulation of Akt/mTOR Signaling
Figure Lengend Snippet: TRPM7 regulates neutrophil function via NFκB and Akt/mTOR signaling pathways. Assessment of the activity of the cell signaling molecules NFκB, Erk1/2, Akt1, and mTOR utilizing a Bio-Plex assay and phospho-specific antibodies on lysates of bone marrow derived murine neutrophils of Trpm7 +/+ (black) and Trpm7 R/R (green) mice. Trpm7 +/+ and Trpm7 R/R neutrophils were pre-incubated with or without (control, black) the TRPM7 inhibitor NS8593 (30 µM, red), the TRPM7 kinase blocker TG100-115 (20 µM, blue), or a combination of IPI and NEM (160 and 100 nM, gray), respectively, for 30 min. Presented data depict the phosphorylation status upon stimulation with 10 ng/ml LPS for 30 min of (A, E) NFκB p65 (Ser536), (B, F) Erk1/2 (Thr202/Tyr204, Thr185/Tyr187), (C, G) Akt (Ser473), and (D, H) mTOR (Ser2448). For comparison results from control Trpm7 R/R neutrophils (open green triangle) were taken from the respective panels above. Data are normalized to protein content and represented as mean ± s.e.m.; n = 3, measured in duplicates; a total number of 5–6 mice were used for each genotype. Statistics: one-way ANOVA *p
