Influence of miR-101 on proliferation of liver cancer cells through the MAPK/ERK signaling pathway.

Influence of miR-101 on proliferation of liver cancer cells through the MAPK/ERK signaling pathway. Oncol Lett. 2020 Feb;19(2):1310-1316 Authors: Meng X, Shi Y, Xiang X, Li C, Ge X, Pan K, Liang Y Abstract The expression of miR-101 in carcinoma and para-carcinoma tissues of patients with liver cancer was studied. The carcinoma and para-carcinoma tissues of 67 patients with liver cancer treated in Chinese PLA General Hospital were collected, and the expression of miR-101 in carcinoma and para-carcinoma tissues was detected via reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The liver cancer HepG2 cell line was transfected with miR-101 mimics. Moreover, the influence of miR-101 overexpression on the proliferation of liver cancer cells was detected via Cell Counting Kit-8 assay and colony formation assay. The proportion of Ki67-positive cells in the control group (NC group) and miR-101 overexpression group (miR-101 mimics group) was detected via Ki67 staining. The proportions of cells were detected via flow cytometry, and the predicted target gene Zeste2 enhancer (EZH2) was further verified via luciferase reporter gene assay and western blotting. The miR-101 overexpression significantly inhibited the colony formation and proliferation ability of liver cancer cells (P

Authors: Zhang Y, Ying X, Zhao Q, Ma J, Zhang D, He C, Han S Abstract Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a malignant tumor associated with a poor prognosis. Serum biomarkers of HCC have the potential to improve the diagnosis, provide a means to monitor the tumors, and predict their malignancy. Proteins that are expressed differentially between HCC patients and normal controls have the potential to be biomarkers. Method: Serum samples from 10 confirmed HCC patients and 10 controls were collected. The differentially expressed proteins in the serum were identified using an isobaric tags for relative and...

CONCLUSION: The present data indicate that VOPP1 may play an important role in the progression of HCC by targeting the MAPK and mTOR signalling pathways, and that VOPP1 may potentially be a candidate as a novel molecular target for HCC therapy. PMID: 32083568 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsCirrhotic patients have higher odds of developing pulmonary complications, ascites, and anastomotic leak during the first postoperative month. Although, 30-day mortality was higher among cirrhotic patients after esophagectomy, liver disease does not seem to influence long-term prognosis.

Abstract HIF-1 (hypoxia-inducible factor 1) signaling played a vital role in HCC (hepatocellular carcinoma) prognosis. We aimed to establish an accurate risk scoring system for HCC prognosis prediction and treatment guidance. 424 samples from TCGA (The Cancer Genome Atlas) and 445 samples from GSE14520 dataset were included as the derivation and validation cohort, respectively. In the derivation cohort, prognostic relevant signatures were selected from sixteen HIF-1 related genes and LASSO regression was adopted for model construction. Tumor-infiltrating immune cells were calculated using CIBERSORT algorithm. HIF-...
