In conclusion, it was identified that silencing of miR‑193a‑3p through hypermethylation can promote HER2 positive breast cancer progress by targeting GRB7, ERK1/2 and FOXM1 signaling. The function of miR‑193a‑3p in HER2 positive breast cancer implicates its potential application in therapy. PMID: 31017268 [PubMed - in process]

Detection of N6‑methyladenosine modification residues (Review). Int J Mol Med. 2019 Jun;43(6):2267-2278 Authors: Zhu W, Wang JZ, Xu Z, Cao M, Hu Q, Pan C, Guo M, Wei JF, Yang H Abstract Among a number of mRNA modifications, N6‑methyladenosine (m6A) modification is the most common type in eukaryotes and nuclear‑replicating viruses. m6A has a significant role in numerous cancer types, including leukemia, brain tumors, liver cancer, breast cancer and lung cancer. Although m6A methyltransferases are essential during RNA modifications, the biological functions of m6A and the underlying mechanisms rem...

Publication date: Available online 24 April 2019Source: Pharmacological ResearchAuthor(s): Xiaocong Pang, Kan Gong, Xiaodan Zhang, Shiliang Wu, Yimin Cui, Bin-Zhi QianAbstractMetastasis to bone frequently occurs in majority of patients with advanced breast cancer and prostate cancer, leading to devastating skeletal-related events and substantially reducing the survival of patients. Currently, the crosstalk between tumor cells and the bone stromal compartment was widely investigated for bone metastasis and the resistance to many conventional therapeutic methods. Osteopontin (OPN), also known as SPP1 (secreted phosphoprotein...

ConclusionWe found that downregulation of HCP5 contributed to DDP resistance in TNBC, while overexpression of HCP5 reversed the resistance via upregulating PTEN level. Therefore, DDP combined with overexpression of HCP5 might be considered as a therapeutic approach for the treatment of DDP-resistant TNBC.

Conclusion Inspired by the general network co-neighbors, this paper proposed the definition of the co-neighbors of the bipartite network based on the hypothesis that that functionally similar miRNAs are related to phenotypically similar diseases. Eight local structural similarity indexes which are co-neighbor, Salton, Jaccard, Sørensen, HPI, HDI, LHN1, and PA were used to measure the association probabilities between nodes. Several types calculation methods of computational miRNA-disease prediction score were introduced, namely, the bipartite network co-neighbor link prediction score using only known association in...

Conclusion The key problem with the ND field is the lack of understanding in the events preceding the development of protein-based markers – such as Tau – currently used to diagnose NDs. By this stage, the diseases become more difficult to treat. SncRNAs play an important regulatory role in the maintenance of the homeostatic brain. Therefore, changes in their concentration levels can be indicative of mechanistic changes that could precede protein-based markers. One single sncRNA biomarker is unlikely to differentiate between diseases. However, a combination of sncRNA biomarkers could be illustrative of the me...

Publication date: Available online 24 April 2019Source: NeurocomputingAuthor(s): Hiba Chougrad, Hamid Zouaki, Omar AlheyaneAbstractEarly diagnosis of breast cancer, when it is small and has not spread, can make the disease easier to treat which increases the patient's chances of survival. The recent proposed methods for the early diagnosis of breast cancer, and while showing great success in achieving this goal, rely on one of the indicators in the mammogram to diagnose the patient's condition. Whether it is identifying differences in shapes and patterns of the findings (i.e. masses, calcifications...etc.) or assessing the...
