The study demonstrates that platelets deliver miRNAs to vascular smooth muscle cells, and participate in the pathogenesis of diabetic vascular disease by regulating the phenotypic transition of vascular smooth muscle cells. This novel cell-cell communication suggests that platelets are potentially developed for the specific targeted drug carriers in the treatment of diabetes-related vascular diseases.

5. Gendie Lash
Gendie Lash currently heads the Laboratory of Uterine Vascular Biology. She obtained her PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand and worked as a post-doctoral fellow and lecturer at University of Nottingham (UK), Queen’s University (Canada) and Newcastle University (UK) prior to joining GIP in 2015. Since joining GIP she has published 13 papers from her group or in collaboration with clinical researchers within GWCMC, as well as several others with international collaborators. She is currently the Editor of Trophoblast Research, serving on the editorial board of several other journals and is frequently invited to present her research at National and International conferences. Her laboratory is well funded by the National Science Foundation of China and Guangzhou Municipal Science and Technology Fund. In addition she has been recognized as Guangzhou key medical talent. Her research group is made up of a dynamic group of scientist including senior scientist, post-doctoral fellows, technicians and master’s students.
Research in the Uterine Vascular Biology Laboratory focuses on 4 main themes.
(1). Regulators of trophoblast invasion
Invasion of the maternal decidua and inner third of myometrium by extravillous trophoblast cells and the subsequent remodeling of the uterine spiral arteries is one of the key events in early pregnancy; failures in these processes being associated with major complications of pregnancy. Our research aims to identify some of the key regulatory mechanisms in these processes with the ultimate aim to develop early interventions for prevention of these pregnancy complications.
(2). Regulators of VSMC (de)differentiation
Vascular smooth muscle cells can switch from a synthetic to contractile phenotype and vice versa depending on the microenvironment. The switch from contractive to synthetic is a key feature of spiral artery remodeling and we have identified Ang2 and vitamin D as one of the key mediators of this process. Our research aims to understand the molecular basis of this phenotypic switching and how it can be utilized therapeutically.
(3). Regulators of endometrium maturation in health and disease (recurrent miscarriage, heavy menstrual bleeding, endometriosis)
Aberrant endometrial maturation is a feature of recurrent miscarriage (advanced) and heavy menstrual bleeding (halted) associated with TGF-β1 signalling. Current research is focused on understanding the complete molecular basis of this to develop therapeutics for these important gynecology conditions.
(4). Regulators of tumor angiogenesis, metastasis and progression (breast, endometrial and ovarian)
Poor prognosis for many types of tumors is associated with tumor angiogenesis and cancer cell metastasis. Many of the same pathways being investigated in the tightly regulated process of trophoblast invasion/spiral artery remodeling are also relevant to tumor angiogenesis and metastasis where they occur in an uncontrolled manner. Therefore we can learn about both systems by drawing parallels between them.

Brief description of current research:
It has been shown that adenosine plays an important role in the regulation of immune responses. Adenosine accumulates at sites of inflammation and tumor growth and binds to adenosine receptors that are expressed by immune cells in response to activation signals. However, the role of adenosine deaminases, which decrease the local concentration of adenosine, is still unclear. Moreover, it remains puzzling why humans possess two enzymes, ADA1 and ADA2, with adenosine deaminase activity. ADA1 is largely an intracellular enzyme that breaks down adenosine and reduces the concentration of the adenosine derivatives that are toxic to immune cells. It has been found that mutations in the ADA1 gene lead to a severe combined immunodeficiency that is characterized by decreased antibody production and lower numbers of T and B cells. In contrast to ADA1, ADA2 is a secreted protein expressed mainly by cells of the myeloid lineage, such as macrophages and dendritic cells. Clinical studies have shown that the levels of ADAs in biological fluids are altered in pathophysiological conditions, suggesting that ADA activity could be a convenient marker for the diagnosis of immune diseases such as tuberculosis and oral cancer. We have identified the gene encoding ADA2 and shown that it belongs to a new family of adenosine deaminase growth factors (ADGFs). The crystal structure of ADA2 reveals it to be a dimer with two chemokine-like domains that could potentially bind a putative ADA2 receptor. We found that ADA2 binds to neutrophiles, CD16+ monocytes, NK cells and B cells that do not express CD26, a receptor for ADA1. These observations suggest the existence of a new mechanism by which ADAs bind to and regulate the activity of different lymphocyte subsets. Recently, patients with mutations in the gene encoding ADA2 (DADA2 patients) were identified. These patients display multiple health problems such as early onset systemic inflammation, multiple ischemic strokes, panlymphopenia and hypogammaglobulinemia. The aim of my project is to shed light on the function of ADA2, the enzyme that is currently thought to be a drug candidate to combat solid tumors, and find its clinical applications.
