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...

Xueyuan Huang, Bin Wu, Jian Li, Yinghui Shang, Wansong Chen, Xinming Nie & Rong Gui
Conventional anti-tumour chemotherapy is facing the challenges of poor specificity, high toxicity and drug resistance. Tumour microenvironment (TME) plays a critical role in tumour development and drug resistance. To address this problem, we constructed a novel anti-tumour nanoparticle platform RBC@BPQDs-DOX/KIR, black phosphorus nanoparticle quantum dots (BPQDs) with one of the chemotherapeutics (doxorubicin, DOX) and an anti-inflammatory traditional Chinese medicine active component (Kirenol, KIR). Red blood cell membrane (RBCm) vesicles were used as the shell to...

Delivery of mesenchymal stem cells-derived extracellular vesicles with enriched miR-185 inhibits progression of OPMD

Lin Wang, Panpan Yin, Jiaqi Wang, Yuanyuan Wang, Zheng Sun, Yu Zhou & Xiaobing Guan
Oral leukoplakia is one of the most common oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMDs) and its malignant transformation to oral cancer is highly associated with chronic inflammation. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) or exosome-delivered microRNAs modulate inflammatory responses and alleviate irritations that predisposes to cancer. We previously reported that microRNA-185 (miR-185) was significantly decreased in the buccal tissue of patients with oral cancer. In this study, we utilized genetically modified mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived EVs with high...

Spontaneous formation of tumorigenic hybrids between human omental adipose-derived stromal cells and endometrial cancer cells increased motility and heterogeneity of cancer cells

Mingxia Li, Xiaoping Li, Lijun Zhao, Jingyi Zhou, Yuan Cheng, Bo Xu, Jianliu Wang & Lihui Wei
Recent reports indicate that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can fuse with cancer cells to promote cancer progression. Omental adipose-derived stromal cells (O-ASCs) are similar to MSCs, which could be recruited to the stroma in endometrial cancer. The aim of our study was to investigate whether O-ASCs can fuse with endometrial cancer cells to influence cancer cells biological characteristics. We isolated O-ASCs from patients with endometrial cancer. O-ASCs and endometrial cancer cells were labeled with different...

Ovarian cancer is one type of gynecological malignancies with extremely high lethal rate. Abnormal proliferation and metastasis are regarded to play important roles in patients’ death, whereas we know little about the underlying molecular mechanisms. Under this circumstance, our current study aims to investigate the role of hub genes in ovarian cancer. Bioinformatics analysis of the data from GEO and analyses of ovarian cancer samples were performed. Then, the results showed that KIF23, a hub...

Methionine restriction delays senescence and suppresses the senescence-associated secretory phenotype in the kidney through endogenous hydrogen sulfide

Si-Yang Wang, Wen-Juan Wang, Jie-Qiong Liu, Yu-Huan Song, Ping Li, Xue-Feng Sun, Guang-Yan Cai & Xiang-Mei Chen
Aging is a risk factor for various acute and chronic kidney injuries. Kidney aging is accompanied by the secretion of growth factors, proteases, and inflammatory cytokines, known as the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP). These factors accelerate the aging process and senescence-associated changes. Delaying kidney senescence may prevent acute and chronic kidney injury. Methionine restriction (MR) was found to be an effective intervention for delaying senescence. However, the mechanism of MR remains unclear. In this study,...

MicroRNA-3194-3p inhibits metastasis and epithelial-mesenchymal transition of hepatocellular carcinoma by decreasing Wnt/β-catenin signaling through targeting BCL9

Bowen Yao, Yazhao Li, Liang Wang, Tianxiang Chen, Yongshen Niu, Qingguang Liu & Zhikui Liu
Local and systemic metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) causes the poor prognosis and increasing evidence confirms that aberrant miRNAs were involved in cancer progression. However, the expression and mechanisms of a specific miR-3194-3p in HCC remains unknown. In this research, we demonstrated that miR-3194-3p, significantly down-regulated in HCC tissues and cell lines, was associated with metastasis and recurrence of HCC. Notably, gain- and loss-of-function assays demonstrated that miR-3194-3p inhibited the migration, invasion and epithelial-mesenchymal transition...

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...
