Large-scale quantitative genomics analyzes the circRNA expression profile and identifies the key circRNA in regulating cell proliferation during the proliferation phase of rat LR

Xueqiang Guo, Wei Jin, Cuifang Chang, Yi Ding, Yahao Wang, Lifei Li, Yanhui Chen, Jingbo Zhang, Cunshuan Xu, Guangwen Chen & Jianlin Guo
Researchers have been exploring the genetic mechanisms underlying the control of liver regeneration (LR). However, an integrated analysis of circRNAs expression of rat regenerating livers during the proliferation phase has not been performed yet. For this purpose, circRNAs expression profile was globally analyzed by high-throughput sequencing. It showed that 10,003 circRNAs were detected, and 164 circRNAs were differentially expressed. Subsequently, 27 circRNAs were predicted to bind to 58 candidate miRNAs and compete for miRNA-binding sites...

SPA: a peptide antagonist that acts as a cell-penetrating peptide for drug delivery

Jingjing Song, Sujie Huang, Zhengzheng Zhang, Bo Jia, Huan Xie, Ming Kai & Wei Zhang
Although cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) has been proven to be efficient transporter for drug delivery, ideal peptide vectors for tumor therapy are still being urgently sought. Peptide antagonists have attracted substantial attention as targeting molecules because of their high tumor accumulation and antitumor activity compared with agonists. SPA, a derivative of substance P, is a potent antagonist that exhibits antitumor activity. Based on the amino acid composition of SPA, we speculate that it can translocate across...

A novel circular RNA, hsa_circ_0043278, acts as a potential biomarker and promotes non-small cell lung cancer cell proliferation and migration by regulating miR-520f

Jinggang Cui, Wei Li, Guohua Liu, Xiaojun Chen, Xiaolai Gao, Huiling Lu & Dang Lin
More and more circular RNAs (circRNAs) revealed to play a critical role in the initiation and progression of cancer, however, the effects of circRNAs on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain largely undetermined. In the present study, we screened the dysregulated circRNAs in paired NSCLC and normal samples from GEO database and identified circ_0043278 was to be significantly up-regulated in NSCLC and demonstrated it promotes NSCLC progression in vitro and in vivo. Then, we revealed...

MiR-30a-5p frequently downregulated in prostate cancer inhibits cell proliferation via targeting PCLAF

Hu Zhao, Xiaofeng Lai, Wei Zhang, Hehuan Zhu, Shenhang Zhang, Weizhen Wu, Shuiliang Wang, Minying Tang, Zhen Deng & Jianming Tan
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have vastly expanded our view of RNA world in intracellular signal regulating networks. Here, we functionally characterized a normally highly expressed miRNA, miR-30a-5p (MIMAT0000087), which exhibits downregulated expression profiles in prostate cancer samples. MiR-30a-5p knockdown and overexpression in PC-3 cell line alters cell proliferation supporting a tumour suppressor role. We also discovered that PCLAF is the direct target of miR-30a-5p. Notably, PC-3 cell proliferation is inhibited by miR-30a-5p/PCLAF axis. miR-30a-5p represents a novel...

Distinct roles of cohesin acetyltransferases Esco1 and Esco2 in porcine oocyte meiosis I

Yajuan Lu, Ying Chen, Zhaokang Cui & Bo Xiong
In mammalian cells, cohesin acetyltransferases Esco1 and Esco2 acetylate cohesin subunit Smc3 to establish chromosome cohesion, ensuring the accurate chromosome segregation. However, we have previously documented that both Esco1 and Esco2 have unique substrates and roles in mouse oocyte meiosis I to orchestrate the meiotic progression, but whether these functions are conserved among species is still not determined. Here, we used porcine oocytes as a model to illustrate that Esco1 and Esco2 exerted conserved functions...

The role of DRP1 in ropivacaine-induced mitochondrial dysfunction and neurotoxicity

Yan Chen, Lili Yan, Yan Zhang & Xianhui Yang
Ropivacaine is a commonly used local anaesthetic, but its side effects remain largely unknown. In the present study, we investigated the side effects of ropivacaine in human neuronal SH-5Y5Y cells. We show that 0.5% and 1% ropivacaine could cause fission-like mitochondrial morphological changes. Ropivacaine exclusively induces mitochondrial fission protein DRP1, generation of ROS and causes mitochondrial dysfunction including decreasing mitochondrial membrane potential, the activity of cytochrome C oxidase and ATP production. The side effects of...

Sevoflurane suppresses migration and invasion of glioma cells by regulating miR-146b-5p and MMP16

Le Zhang, Jun Wang, Zhijie Fu, YanQiu Ai, Yanrong Li, Ying Wang & Yanping Wang
Glioma is the most common brain tumor with poor prognosis all over the world. Anesthetics have been demonstrated to have important impacts on cell migration and invasion in different cancers. However, the underlying mechanism that allows anesthetics-mediated progression of glioma cells remains elusive. Sevoflurane (Sev), a class of common anesthetics, was used to expose to U87-MG and U251 cells. The expressions of microRNA-146b-5p (miR-146b-5p) and matrix metallopeptidase 16 (MMP16)were measured by quantitative real-time polymerase chain...

Myotubularin related protein 7 is essential for the spermatogonial stem cell homeostasis via PI3K/AKT signaling

Dan Zhao, Cong Shen, Tingting Gao, Hong Li, Yueshuai Guo, Feng Li, Chenchen Liu, Yuanyuan Liu, Xia Chen, Xi Zhang, Yangyang Wu, Yi Yu, Meng Lin, Yan Yuan, Xiaofang Chen, Xiaoyan Huang, Shenmin Yang, Jun Yu, Jun Zhang & Bo Zheng
Myotubularin related protein 7 (MTMR7), a key member of the MTMR family, depicts phosphatase activity and is involved in myogenesis and tumor growth. We have previously identified MTMR7 in the proteomic profile of mouse spermatogonial stem cell (SSC) maturation and differentiation, implying that MTMR7 is associated with neonatal testicular development. In this study, to further explore the distribution and function of MTMR7 in mouse testis, we studied the effect of Mtmr7 knockdown on neonatal testicular...

Cholesterol depletion sensitizes gallbladder cancer to cisplatin by impairing DNA damage response

Yonglong Zhang, Yanfeng Liu, Jinlin Duan, Hui Wang, Yuchen Zhang, Ke Qiao & Jian Wang
Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is the common malignancy of the bile tract system with extremely poor clinical outcomes, owing to its metastatic property and intrinsic resistance to the first-line drugs. Although it is well-established that cholesterol abnormity contributes to gallstone formation, a leading risk factor for GBC, the link of cholesterol homeostasis with GBC has not been investigated. The present study systematically examined the genes implicated in cholesterol homeostasis, and revealed altered gene expressions of de...
