WBSCR22 Competes with Long Non-coding RNA Linc00346 for miR-509-5p Binding Site to Regulate Cancer Stem Cell Phenotypes of Colorectal Cancer.

WBSCR22 Competes with Long Non-coding RNA Linc00346 for miR-509-5p Binding Site to Regulate Cancer Stem Cell Phenotypes of Colorectal Cancer. Biochem Genet. 2020 Feb 01;: Authors: Zhao H, Su W, Sun Y, Wu Z Abstract Various Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been demonstrated to be involved in colorectal cancer stem cells (CSCs). WBSCR22 is a key gene we previously found that functions in colorectal cancer (CRC). This paper aims to investigate the effects of WBSCR22 and its corresponding miRNA and lncRNA in CRC. The expression of WBSCR22 was detected by Western blot and qRT-PCR analysis. Tumor sphere formation assays, CCK-8 analysis, and Transwell assays were applied to examine the colorectal cancer stem cell properties. Luciferase assay and biotin RNA pulldown assay were used to detect the interaction between miR-509-5p and WBSCR22/Linc00346. WBSCR22 is highly expressed in CRC and correlates with poor prognosis. Knockdown of WBSCR22 decreased the sphere-forming capacities, cell proliferation, and invasion abilities. WBSCR22 was negatively regulated by miR-509-5p. Linc00346 promoted the expression of WBSCR22 by adsorbing miR-509-5p. The Linc00346/miR-509-5p/WBSCR22 signal axis regulated the characteristics of colon cancer stem cells. Linc00346 regulated the expression of WBSCR22 by binding to miR-509-5p, thereby monitoring the characteristics of colorectal cancer stem cells. Thus, WBSCR22, Linc00346, and miR-509-5p might be utilize...

In this study, we show that a stem-cell marker protein, leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein–coupled receptor 5 (LGR5), is rapidly depleted in colon cancer cells during ER stress, an effect that depended on the PERK-mediated translational repression. Indeed, the PERK inhibition led to the accumulation of premature, underglycosylated forms of LGR5, which were produced only at low levels during proper PERK activation. Unlike the mature LGR5 form, which is constitutively degraded regardless of PERK activation, the underglycosylated LGR5 exhibited a prolonged half-life and accumulated inside the cells without being e...

Abstract Melatonin is a physiological hormone produced by the pineal gland. In recent decades, enormous investigations showed that melatonin can prompt apoptosis in cancer cells and inhibit tumor metastasis and angiogenesis in variety of malignancies such as ovarian, melanoma, colon, and breast cancer; therefore, its possible therapeutic usage in cancer treatment was confirmed. CSCs, which has received much attention from researchers in past decades, are major challenges in the treatment of cancer. Because CSCs are resistant to chemotherapeutic drugs and cause recurrence of cancer and also have the ability to be r...

This study demonstrates that haploinsufficiency of c-Cbl results in Wnt hyperactivation in intestinal crypts and accelerates CRC progression to adenocarcinoma in the milieu of APCΔ14/+, a phenomenon not found with wild-type APC. While emphasizing the role of APC as a gatekeeper in CRC, this study also demonstrates that combined partial loss of c-Cbl and inactivation of APC significantly contribute to CRC tumorigenesis.

Pheochromocytoma (PCC) and paraganglioma (PGL) are rare neuroendocrine tumors associated with high cardiovascular morbidity and variable risk of malignancy. The current therapy of choice is surgical resection. Nevertheless, PCCs/PGLs are associated with a lifelong risk of tumor persistence or recurrence. A high rate of germline or somatic mutations in numerous genes has been found in these tumors. For some, the tumorigenic processes are initiated during embryogenesis. Such tumors carry gene mutations leading to pseudohypoxic phenotypes and show more immature characteristics than other chromaffin cell tumors; they are also ...

In this study, we searched for candidate microRNAs (miRNAs) by in silico analyses, which inhibit a stem cell-related gene Kr üppel-like factor 5 (KLF5). After in vitro screening we focused on miR-4711-5p which proved to inhibit cancer stemness and G1-S cell cycle progression. We found by luciferase binding assays that miR-4711-5p directly bound to KLF5, TFDP1 (a heterodimeric partner with E2F family), and MDM2 (one respo nsible gene for degradation of wild type p53). This miRNA suppressed cell proliferation, migration, and invasion ability in DLD-1 and HCT116 cells as well as the cancer stemness including low reactive...

AbstractDigestive system cancers are the most frequent cancers worldwide and often associated with poor prognosis because of their invasive and metastatic characteristics. Recent studies have found that the plasticity of cancer cells can impart cancer stem-like properties via the epithelial –mesenchymal transition (EMT). Cancer stem-like properties such as tumor initiation are integral to the formation of metastasis, which is the main cause of poor prognosis. Numerous markers of cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been identified in many types of cancer. Therefore, CSCs, via their stem cel l-like functions, may play an imp...

In this study we investigated the effect of curcumin on cancer cell viability, proliferation and suppression of CSCs markers (CD44, CD133, ALDH1) in vitro. Additionally, as limitations for curcumin application arise from its poor bioavailability, the stability of curcumin in different media conditions was investigated.The effect of curcumin on three cancer cell lines (A549, HCT116, 183E95) was investigated with MTT-assay, Flowcytometry, Immunofluorescence and western blotting. Stability of curcumin (diferuloylmethane) and curcuminoids (bisdemetoxycurcumin; desmetoxycurcumin) was determined by HPLC technique in A549 cells i...
