The lab had their paper "Probing compartment-specific sphingolipids with targeted bacterial sphingomyelinases and ceramidases" by Wataru Sakamoto, Daniel Canals, Silvia Salamone, Janet Allopenna, Christopher Clarke, Justin Snider, Lina Obeid, and Yusuf Hannun accepted for publication in the Journal of Lipid Research. This paper, originating from the Hannun lab, details the use of bacterial enzymes targeted to specific cellular compartments such as the Golgi and ER as tools to probe their sphingolipid composition. As there is a growing appreciation of the compartmentalization of sphingolipid metabolism and signaling, these constructs add valuable tools for probing such functions.
The lab had their paper "PKCα is required for Akt-mTORC1 activation in Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma (NSCLC) with EGFR mutation" by Yusuf Hannun, Mohamed Salama, Mengling Liu, Christopher Clarke, Mel Pilar Espaillat, John Haley, Lina Marie Obeid, Daifeng Wang, and Ting Jin accepted for publication in Oncogene. This paper, originating from the Hannun lab with help from the Obeid lab, details the role of PKCα as an upstream activator of Akt-mTORC1 signaling specifically in lung cancers harboring mutant but not wild-type EGFRs. This establishes PKCα as a target of interest in such lung cancers.
