Long noncoding RNA LINC00205 enhances the malignant characteristics of retinoblastoma by acting as a molecular sponge of microRNA-665 and consequently increasing HMGB1 expression.

In this study, we aimed to determine the expression pattern of LINC00205 in retinoblastoma (RB), to identify its functions in RB progression in detail, and to reveal the underlying mechanisms. Herein, we showed that LINC00205 is highly expressed in RB tissues and cell lines. The LINC00205 upregulation correlated with adverse clinicopathological parameters and shorter overall survival in patients with RB. LINC00205 depletion decreased the proliferative, migratory, and invasive abilities; promoted the apoptosis of RB cells in vitro; and impeded the tumor growth of RB cells in vivo. Mechanism investigation revealed that LINC00205 can act as a competing endogenous RNA by sponging microRNA-665 (miR-665) in RB cells, thereby upregulating miR-665's target: high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1). Finally, rescue experiments confirmed that enhancing the miR-665-HMGB1 axis output attenuated the influence of the LINC00205 knockdown on RB cells. To sum up, the newly identified LINC00205-miR-665-HMGB1 pathway was systematically studied and may be validated as a potential target for RB diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy.

Authors: Chen JM, Chiu SC, Chen KC, Huang YJ, Liao YA, Yu CR Abstract Enolase transforms 2-phospho-D-glycerate into phosphoenolpyruvate during glycolysis. The human enolase (ENO) family comprises three members named ENO3, which is restricted to muscle tissues, ENO2, which is neuron- and neuroendocrine tissue-specific, and ENO1, which is expressed in almost all tissues. ENO1 is involved in various types of human cancer, including retinoblastoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic cancer, renal cell carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma and gastric cancer. Furthermore, ENO1 enhances cell transformation in numerous cancer c...

Retinoblastoma binding protein 6 (RBBP6) is a cancer-related protein that has been implicated in the regulation of cell cycle and apoptosis. RBBP6 isoform 1 has been demonstrated to interact with two tumour suppressors, p53 and pRB. Isoform 1 been shown to regulate p53 through its ubiquitin ligase activity, thus implicating in cell cycle regulation and apoptosis. Isoforms 1 and 2 are multidomain proteins containing a domain with no name (DWNN) domain, a Zinc Finger, a RING Finger, an Rb-binding domain and a p53-binding domain. The RBBP6 isoform 3 comprises the DWNN domain only. Isoform 4 lacks the Rb-binding domain but its...

ConclusionsFrom our data we conclude that impairment of the cyclin D-CDK4/6-Rb pathway is a frequent feature of HCC and that it is associated with a unfavourable prognosis. We also found that ribociclib exhibits a preferential antineoplastic activity in Rb-high HCC cells. Our results warrant further investigation of Rb and p16 expression as markers of HCC sensitivity to ribociclib.

In this study, we reviewed major human studies on the health risks of radiation exposure and showed that sex-related factors may potentially influence the long-term response to radiation exposure. Available data suggest that long-term radiosensitivity in women is higher than that in men who receive a comparable dose of radiation. The report on the biological effects of ionizing radiation (BEIR VII) published in 2006 by the National Academy of Sciences, United States emphasized that women may be at significantly greater risk of suffering and dying from radiation-induced cancer than men exposed to the same dose of radiation....

Conclusions and Perspectives In this review, we have discussed important milestones from the early description of “Serum-sickness” as being due to antibodies directed against Neu5Gc epitopes all the way to the present-day therapeutic implications of these antibodies in cancer therapy. Some of these milestones have been represented in a concise timeline (Figure 6). While the “Xenosialitis” hypothesis is well-supported in the human-like mouse models, it has yet to be conclusively proven in humans. It remains to be seen if “Xenosialitis” plays a role in other uniquely-human diseases. FI...
