Conclusion: This study has shown that simplification of ISH protocols by the use of COPs provides equivalent results to the use of LNA methods and it can be used to precisely identify cells in which miRNAs are expressed. PMID: 32223721 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Contributors : Hiromu Suzuki ; Akira YorozuSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensWe identified adipocyte enhancer binding protein 1 (AEBP1) as a novel tumor endothelial marker in colorectal cancer (CRC). To identify target genes of AEBP1 in endothelial cells, we knocked down AEBP1 in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). We found that genes associated with angiogenesis including aquaporin 1 (AQP1) and periostin (POSTN) are downregulated by AEBP1 knockdown in HUVECs, suggesting that AEBP1 may promote tumor angiogenesis through regulating these genes.

AbstractAlthough the application of laparoscopic rectal surgery has been widely accepted by accumulated evidence, it remains technically difficult in some cases of obesity, narrow male pelvis, bulky tumors, or involvement of adjacent organs. After robotic rectal surgery has been covered by the health insurance system in Japan since April 2018, we have employed robotic rectal surgery for an increasing number of cases by taking advantages of its 3D vision and wrist function. When a colorectal cancer involves the urinary bladder, the surgical treatment of choice is an anterior resection with en bloc (partial or total) bladder...
