MicroRNA-146b-3p regulates the dysfunction of vascular smooth muscle cells via repressing phosphoinositide-3 kinase catalytic subunit gamma

Xijing Zhuang, Feng Gao, Lei Shi, Wei Liu, Wenjun Wang, Xuezhi He & Yang Gao
MicroRNAs are crucial regulators in the phenotype switch of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Nonetheless, the role of miR-146b-3p in VSMCs remains unclear. In the present study, platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB) at different concentrations was employed to stimulate VSMCs for different times, to establish the model of VSMC dysfunction. The relative expression of miR-146b-3p was quantified by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). The proliferation of VSMCs was measured by BrdU assay. Flow cytometry analysis...

Identification of the key genes and pathways involved in B cells in primary Sjögren’ s syndrome

Shizhen Lei & Yi Zhang
Primary Sjögren’ s syndrome (pSS) is a relatively common autoimmune disease, which mainly involves the exocrine glands, causing dry eye, dryness of mouth, fatigue and pain in the joints, thus severely affecting the normal lives of patients. B cell populations are considered to play an important role in their pathogenesis and pSS patients are generally characterized by exhibiting biological signs of B cell activation. Moreover, another important characterized change in the peripheral blood of pSS...

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...

Identification of prognostic markers by weighted gene co‐expression network analysis in non-small cell lung cancer

Binglin Chen, Xiaowei Xie, Feifeng Lan & Wenqi Liu
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the fatal tumors and is associated with a poor prognosis. Cell-type identification by estimating relative subsets of RNA transcripts (CIBERSORT) was used to quantify the proportions of 22 types of immune cells. Weighted gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA) was established from the GSE37745 data, and key modules correlating most with CD8+ T cell infiltration were determined. Genes that manifested a high module connectivity in the key module...

To assess the feasibility of fetoscopy-guided bipolar umbilical cord coagulation for selective fetal reduction in complicated monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) twin pregnancies. MCDA twins undergoing fetoscopy-guided bipolar cord coagulation (BCC) were enrolled prospectively between December 2015 to March 2020 in a fetal medicine center. Twenty-three cases undergoing fetoscopy-guided BCC were finally analyzed, including 11 cases for type 2 selective intrauterine growth restriction, 4 cases for twin–twin transfusion syndrome, and 8 cases for a severe discordant anomaly....

HIF-1α promotes the keloid development through the activation of TGF-β/Smad and TLR4/MyD88/NF-κB pathways

Rui Lei, Jian Li, Feng Liu, Weihan Li, Shizhen Zhang, Yang Wang, Xi Chu & Jinghong Xu
A keloid is defined as an overgrowth of the dense fibrous tissues that form around a wound. Since they destroy the vascular network, keloid tissues often exhibit anoxic conditions. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) is a core factor that mediates hypoxia stress responses and regulates the hypoxic cellular and biological behaviors. In this study, we found that the expression level of HIF-1α in keloid tissue was significantly higher than that in the normal skin tissue. Hypoxia-induced HIF-1α...

Suppressed inflammation in obese children induced by a high-fiber diet is associated with the attenuation of gut microbial virulence factor genes

Hui Li, Guojun Wu, Liping Zhao & Menghui Zhang
In our previous study, a gut microbiota-targeted dietary intervention with a high-fiber diet improved the immune status of both genetically obese (Prader-Willi Syndrome, PWS) and simple obese (SO) children. However, PWS children had higher inflammation levels than SO children throughout the trial, the gut microbiota of the two cohorts was similar. As some virulence factors (VFs) produced by the gut microbiota play a role in triggering host inflammation, this study compared the characteristics and changes...

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 the ARC cell model. The RNA levels of circ_EPB41, microRNA-24-3p (miR-24-3p), and 3ʹ(2ʹ), 5ʹ-bisphosphate...

Can warnings curb the spread of fake news? The interplay between warning, trust and confirmation bias

Kholekile L. Gwebu, Jing Wang & Ermira Zifla
Despite attempts by social media companies to curb the spread of fake news with warnings flagging news credibility, the effectiveness of such measures remains unclear. Through the lens of the cognitive dissonance theory and individuals’ trust in the news, this study develops a theoretical model that explains why and how warnings affect an individual’s intention to share fake news. The study empirically assesses the predicted relationships using experimental survey data from 382 individuals. The findings...

LncRNA miR-17-92a-1 cluster host gene (MIR17HG) promotes neuronal damage and microglial activation by targeting the microRNA-153-3p/alpha-synuclein axis in Parkinson’s disease

Jianzhong Zhang, Yun Yang, Chaoyang Zhou, Ronglan Zhu, Xiang Xiao, Bin Zhou & Dengfeng Wan
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been regarded as modulators of neurodegenerative diseases. Here, we addressed the role of lncRNA miR-17-92a-1 cluster host gene (MIR17HG) in Parkinson’s disease (PD). C57BL/6 mice and SH-SY5Y cells were intervened with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) to set up PD models in vivo and in vitro. Quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was implemented to compare the expression of MIR17HG and miR-153-3p. Cell viability and apoptosis were estimated by 3-(4,5-dimethyithiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl-tetrazolium bromide (MTT) and...

Downregulation of Smad4 expression confers chemoresistance against imatinib mesylate to chronic myeloid leukemia K562 cells

Jiangzhao Zhang, Min Zhang, Yan Liang, Min Liu & Zhiping Huang
Objective: Imatinib mesylate (IM), a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, exhibits clinically prominent effects against chronic myeloid leukemia (CML); however, a few patients have shown resistance to IM treatment, resulting in disease progression. Smad4 is a tumor inhibitor that transduces TGF-β signaling and modulates genomic stability. Previous studies have indicated that decreased Smad4 expression played a bidirectional role in chemosensitivity in many types of cancers. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the association between IM sensitivity and...
