Whole-transcriptome analysis of rat cavernosum and identification of circRNA-miRNA-mRNA networks to investigate nerve injury erectile dysfunction pathogenesis

Jie Huang, Jianxiong Ma, Jie Wang, Ke Ma, Kang Zhou, Wenjie Huang, Fan Zhao, Bodong Lv & Qing Hu
There is growing evidence that circular RNAs (circRNAs) play a vital role in many kinds of diseases, including erectile dysfunction (ED). Nevertheless, the role of circRNAs in cavernous nerve-damaging ED (CNI-ED) is unknown. Here, we aimed to discover novel circRNAs, probed their potential role in the CNI-ED, and construct a ceRNA network of circRNAs. Twelve male Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into 2 groups by us: bilateral cavernous nerve crush (BCNC) and control groups....

Generalized Poisson integer-valued autoregressive processes with structural changes

Chenhui Zhang, Dehui Wang, Kai Yang, Han Li & Xiaohong Wang
In this paper, we introduce a new first-order generalized Poisson integer-valued autoregressive process, for modeling integer-valued time series exhibiting a piecewise structure and overdispersion. Basic probabilistic and statistical properties of this model are discussed. Conditional least squares and conditional maximum likelihood estimators are derived. The asymptotic properties of the estimators are established. Moreover, two special cases of the process are discussed. Finally, some numerical results of the estimates and a real data example are presented.

Circular RNA erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.1 assuages ultraviolet irradiation-induced apoptosis of lens epithelial cells by stimulating 5’-bisphosphate nucleotidase 1 in a miR-24-3p-dependent manner

Cuiyun Zhou, Xiaoqiong Huang, Xia Li & Yan Xiong
Apoptosis of lens epithelial cells contributed to the formation of age-related cataract (ARC), and previous data revealed that circular RNA (circRNA) was responsible for the underneath mechanism. The study was organized to explore the role of circular RNA erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.1 (circ_EPB41) in ultraviolet (UV) irradiation-induced apoptosis of lens epithelial cells. SRA01/04 cells were irradiated with UV to mimic ARC cell model. The RNA levels of circ_EPB41, microRNA-24-3p (miR-24-3p) and 3ʹ(2ʹ), 5ʹ-bisphosphate nucleotidase...

Exosomal microRNA-150-5p from bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells mitigates cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury via targeting toll-like receptor 5

Incomplete thermal ablation-induced up-regulation of transcription factor nuclear receptor subfamily 2, group F, member 6 (NR2F6) contributes to the rapid progression of residual liver tumor in hepatoblastoma

Jin-shu Pang, Dong-yue Wen, Rong-quan He, Gang Chen, Peng Lin, Jin-hong Li, Yu-jia Zhao, Lin-Yong Wu, Jun-Hong Chen, Yun He, Li-Ting Qin, Jia-bo Chen, Yong Li & Hong Yang
Hepatoblastoma is a kind of extreme malignancy frequently diagnosed in children. Although surgical resection is considered as the first-line treatment for hepatoblastoma, a relatively large population of patients have lost the preferred opportunity for surgery. Administration of locoregional ablation enables local tumor control but with the deficiency of insufficient ablation, residual tumor, and rapid progression. In this study, we integrated 219 hepatoblastoma and 121 non-cancer liver tissues to evaluate the expression of NR2F6, from which...

Silencing circular RNA circ_0054537 and upregulating microRNA-640 suppress malignant progression of renal cell carcinoma via regulating neuronal pentraxin-2 (NPTX2)

Long Pei, Xianqiang Lv, Gaopei Jia, Xiaoliang Tan, Ming Li & Aili Zhang
Hsa_circ_0054537 (circ_0054537) is a novel tumor-related circular RNA in renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and we intended to ascertain its dysregulation and functions in RCC malignant progression, as well as the underlying mechanism via serving as competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA). In this research, using real-time quantitative PCR, we found circ_0054537 was upregulated in RCC tissues and cells, and distributed throughout the cytoplasm. Then, functional effects of circ_0054537 in RCC were detected using cell counting kit-8, transwell,...

Down-regulation of microRNA-125b-2-3p is a risk factor for a poor prognosis in hepatocellular carcinoma

He-Qing Huang, Gang Chen, Dan-Dan Xiong, Ze-Feng Lai, Li-Min Liu, Ye-Ying Fang, Jin-Hai Shen, Xiang-Yu Gan, Liu-Feng Liao & Yi-Wu Dang
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a leading cause of mortality in cancer patients, but the association between miR-125b-2-3p and the onset and prognosis of HCC has not been reported in previous studies; thus, the clinicopathological implications of miR-125b-2-3p in HCC require elaboration. To examine the expression of miR-125b-2-3p in HCC, both in-house RT-qPCR and public datasets were used to calculate the standard mean difference (SMD) and the summary receiver operating characteristic (sROC). MiR-125b-2-3p was markedly lower...

Solitary kidney patients with 10–30 mm renal stones were enrolled in this historical control study. Perioperative parameters and complications were compared. Stone-free was defined as the absence of any residual stones on a CT scan. Renal function changes were evaluated by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and adjusted...

Topically applied liposome-in-hydrogels for systematically targeted tumor photothermal therapy

Gang Chen, Aftab Ullah, Gang Xu, Zhou Xu, Fei Wang, Tianqing Liu, Yi Su, Tangjie Zhang & Kaikai Wang
Transdermal drug delivery for local or systemic therapy provides a potential anticancer modality with a high patient compliance. However, the drug delivery efficiency across the skin is highly challenging due to the physiological barriers, which limit the desired therapeutic effects. In this study, we prepared liposome-in-hydrogels containing a tumor targeting photosensitizer IR780 (IR780/lipo/gels) for tumor photothermal therapy (PTT). The formulation effectively delivered IR780 to subcutaneous tumor and deep metastatic sites, while the hydrogels were applied...
