研究领域(Research Area)  

   本课题组长期从事Hippo信号通路在组织稳态维持和疾病发生中的功能机制研究。Hippo信号传导通路是调节组织成体干细胞的分化、增殖,组织再生和器官大小的主导性通路。本课题组通过基因编辑、组织损伤修复和再生模型,深入探讨该通路的生物学功能和调控机制以及其失控导致炎症发生、肝脏等器官的再生重塑障碍、癌症发生的致病机理和靶向干预的策略。以通讯作者在《Cancer Cell》、《Nature Immunol》、《Science Translational Medicine》、《Cell Reports》、《Nature Commun》、《J Exp Med》等重要专业杂志发表多篇论文。


The Hippo pathway has emerged as a critical developmental pathway contributing to processes that regulate tissue growth and organ size. Our research group aims to characterize the regulation and physiologic functions of the Mst1 and Mst2 protein kinases, which are the mammalian orthologs of the “hippo” kinase. Recently, we have made several exciting discoveries regarding the physiological functions of these two kinases. At first, we conditionally deleted both of Mst1 and Mst2 in the developing mouse liver. Within a few weeks, these mice exhibit a dramatic expansion of undifferentiated cells that resemble bipotential liver progenitors. Remarkably, these mice invariably go on to develop both hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma within four months. In addition, the combined deletion of Mst1 and Mst2 from the hematopoietic compartment results in the absence of all peripheral lymphocytes and a profound immunodeficiency syndrome. The liver phenotype reflects an essential, overlapping function of Mst1 and Mst2 in the negative regulation of liver cell proliferation, whereas the lymphocyte cell phenotype reflects predominantly the loss of Mst1/2-mediated regulation of cell adhesion and migration. The identification of the molecular elements upstream and downstream of the Mst1/2 kinases for each of these functions is the focus of present effort.
