Biological functions and clinical significance of the newly identified long non ‑coding RNA RP1‑85F18.6 in colorectal cancer.

Biological functions and clinical significance of the newly identified long non‑coding RNA RP1‑85F18.6 in colorectal cancer. Oncol Rep. 2018 Sep 10;: Authors: Ma Y, Chen Y, Lin C, Hu G Abstract The biological functions of long non‑coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in cancer have not been fully elucidated. The present study demonstrated that the expression of a newly identified lncRNA, RP1‑85F18.6, was upregulated in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues and cell lines. Knockdown of lncRNA RP1‑85F18.6 served a key role in tumor inhibition, reduced cell proliferation and invasion, disrupted the cell cycle, and increased apoptosis and pyroptosis of CRC cells. Conversely, overexpression of lncRNA RP1‑85F18.6 exerted the opposite effects. Furthermore, silencing lncRNA RP1‑85F18.6 decreased ΔNp63 expression at both the mRNA and protein levels. Furthermore, co‑transfection with ΔNp63 siRNA and lncRNA RP1‑85F18.6‑expressing vector attenuated the tumor‑promoting effects of lncRNA RP1‑85F18.6 overexpression. The expression levels of lncRNA RP1‑85F18.6, ΔNp63 and gasdermin D (GSDMD) were revealed to be associated with lymph node and distant metastases in patients with CRC, and therefore may serve as predictors in CRC. The findings of the present study suggested that lncRNA RP1‑85F18.6 may trigger CRC cell proliferation, invasion and cell cycle disruption, and suppress apoptosis and pyroptosis of CRC cells through regulating ΔNp...

Authors: Li X, Liu M, Ji JY Abstract Multiple large-scale epidemiological studies have identified obesity as an important risk factor for a variety of human cancers, particularly cancers of the uterus, gallbladder, kidney, liver, colon, and ovary, but there is much uncertainty regarding how obesity increases the cancer risks. Given that obesity has been consistently identified as a major risk factor for uterine tumors, the most common malignancies of the female reproductive system, we use uterine tumors as a pathological context to survey the relevant literature and propose a novel hypothesis: chronic downregulatio...

Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNA) involve in regulating different physiological processes whose dysregulation is associated with a wide range of diseases including cancers, diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Herein, we report a direct, sensitive and highly selective detection assay for circulating microRNA (miRNA). This detection strategy employs magnetic nanoparticles as the reaction platform which can not only allow online pre-concentration and selective separation but also integrates ligation reaction with amplification to enhance the sensitivity of the detection assay. With the presence of the target miRNA, the lo...

Abstract Single cell mass spectrometry (SCMS) allows for molecular analysis of individual cells while avoiding the inevitable drawbacks of using cell lysate prepared from populations of cells. Based on our previous design of the T-probe, a microscale sampling and ionization device for SCMS analysis, we further developed the device to perform online, and real time lysis of non-adherent live single cells for mass spectrometry (MS) analysis at ambient conditions. This redesigned T-probe includes three parts: a sampling probe with a small tip to withdraw a whole cell, a solvent-providing capillary to deliver lysis sol...

The objective of this study was: (1) to contrast the stability of a prevalent HBQ, 2,6-dichloro-1,4-benzoquinone (DCBQ), in cell culture media and water, and (2) to evaluate the cytotoxicity of parent and transformed DCBQ compounds as well as the ability of these compounds to generate intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) in normal human colon cells (CCD 841 CoN) and human liver cancer cells (HepG2). The half-life of DCBQ in cell media was found to be less than 40 min, compared to 7.2 h in water at pH 7. DCBQ induced a concentration-dependent decrease in cell viability and increase in ROS production in both cell ...

Abstract Background: Cancer initiation and progression depends on genetic and epigenetic alterations such as DNA methylation and histone modifications. Hypermethylation and deacetylation of the CIP/KIP family (p21, p27, and p57) lead to tumorigenesis. Our previous study indicated that DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitor and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors can inhibit cell growth and induce apoptosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of 5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-Aza-CdR) in comparison to valproic acid (VPA) and trichostatin A (TSA) on HDAC1, DNMT1, and CIP/KIP family (p21, p27, an...

Authors: Meng H, Wu J, Huang Q, Yang X, Yang K, Qiu Y, Ren J, Shen R, Qi H Abstract Neural precursor cell-expressed, developmentally-downregulated 9 (NEDD9) is a multi-domain skeleton protein that serves an important role in the cell signaling process via modulating invasion, metastasis, proliferation and apoptosis of tumor cells. The present study identified that the expression levels of NEDD9 in colorectal cancer were elevated. Therefore, the effect of downregulating the expression of NEDD9 in terms of invasion and migration of colorectal cancer cells was investigated and the role of the JNK pathway in these proc...

Authors: Zheng K, Yang Q, Xie L, Qiu Z, Huang Y, Lin Y, Tu L, Cui C Abstract Tumor metastasis and anticancer drug resistance are the major causes of mortality in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). Due to the limitations of conventional biomarkers, it is urgent to identify novel and valid biomarkers to predict the progression and prognosis of CRC. Reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction and western blotting were used to detect MAGT1 expression in CRC clinical samples or cell lines. Bioinformatics analysis was used to investigate the association between MAGT1 alteration and clinicopathologica...
