Circular RNA–microRNA–mRNA network identified circ_0007618 and circ_0029426 as new valuable biomarkers for lung adenocarcinoma

Qiang Zhang, Yungang Sun, Chao Wang & Feng Shao
Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are involved in multiple physiological processes. However, whether circRNAs function as the indicators of lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) remains unclear. Three LUAD-related microarray datasets were downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus database, and overlapping differentially expressed circRNAs (DECs) in LUAD were identified. circ_0007618 and circ_0029426 were revealed to be significantly dysregulated in LUAD and verified in LUAD tissues and serum obtained in this study. Subsequently, the overall survival curve and receiver operating characteristics...

Short divalent ethacrynic amides as pro-inhibitors of glutathione S-transferase isozyme Mu and potent sensitisers of cisplatin-resistant ovarian cancers

Bangtian Xu, Tingting Tong, Xin Wang, Fang Liu, Xiang Zhang, Xiaolei Hu, Xinpeng Li, Xiaolan Yang & Fei Liao
The linking of ethacrynic acid with ethylenediamine and 1,4-butanediamine gave EDEA and BDEA, respectively, as membrane-permeable divalent pro-inhibitors of glutathione S-transferase (GST). Their divalent glutathione conjugates showed subnanomolar inhibition and divalence-binding to GSTmu (GSTM) (PDB: 5HWL) at ∼0.35 min−1. In cisplatin-resistant SK-OV-3, COC1, SGC7901 and A549 cells, GSTM activities probed by 15 nM BDEA or EDEA revealed 5-fold and 1.0-fold increases in cisplatin-resistant SK-OV-3 and COC1 cells, respectively, in comparison with the susceptible parental cells....

In this study, we investigated the therapeutic effects of exogenous H2S in the experimental models of retinal photodamage in vivo and in vitro. Methods: Rats with open eyelids were pretreated with H2S (80~120 μmol/kg) for 10 days and then continuously exposed to blue light (435~445nm, 11.2W/m2) for 8 h to establish in vivo experimental...

Long non-coding RNAs PGM5-AS1 upregulates Decorin (DCN) to inhibit cervical cancer progression by sponging miR-4284

Huimin Wang, Dan Wang, Qiong Wei, Chun Li, Chunyan Li & Jing Yang
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been widely studied and play crucial roles in cervical cancer (CC) progression. Here, we investigated the function and mechanism of lncRNA PGM5-AS1 action in CC cells. Using real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction or western blotting, PGM5-AS1 and decorin (DCN) were downregulated in CC tissues and cells, whereas miR-4284 was upregulated. Luciferase assay, RNA pull-down assay, and western blotting showed that PGM5-AS1 could sponge miR-4284 to upregulate DCN expression in CC...

Transcriptomic insights into the regulatory networks of chilling-induced early flower in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.)

Guoyun Xu, Wuxia Guo, Zunqiang Li, Chen Wang, Yalong Xu, Jingjing Jin, Huina Zhou & Shulin Deng
Appropriate timing of flowering is pivotal for tobacco, while chilling stress occurring at the seedling stage often undesirably leads to early flowering. However, the potential mechanism underlying chilling-induced early flowering remains unknown. Here, transcriptome sequencing was performed in tobacco with or without chilling at both seedling and budding stages. Chilling affected the expression of numerous genes at the seedling stage, while these dramatic expression changes were largely eliminated at the budding stage. A small number...

Niluopaer Tuerxun, Jie Wang, Yu-ting Qin, Fang Zhao, Huan Wang, Jian-hua Qu, Md. Nazim Uddin & Jian-ping Hao
The deregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) and genes in the bone marrow microenvironment have been involved with the pathogenesis of multiple myeloma (MM). However, the exploration of miRNA-mRNA regulatory networks in MM remains lacking. We used GSE125363, GSE125361, GSE47552, GSE2658, GSE136324, GSE16558, and GSE13591 datasets for this bioinformatics study. We identified 156 downregulated and 13 upregulated differentially expressed miRNAs (DEmiRs) in MM. The DEmiRs are associated with the enrichment of pathways mainly involved with cancers, cellular...

Persistence in World Export Patterns and Productive Capabilities Across Two Globalizations

Isabella M. Weber, Gregor Semieniuk, Junshang Liang & Tom Westland
We construct a new global commodity-level export dataset to analyze the persistence of export patterns as proxies of productive capabilities across the first and the current waves of global- ization. We find that productive capabilities are path-dependent and historical capabilities are powerful predictors of countries’ incomes today. This is robust to controlling for persistence in geography, institutions, and colonial status, and confirmed by instrumenting past capabilities with asymmetric reductions in travel times following the switch...
