Linc00941 is a novel TGF β target that primes papillary thyroid cancer metastatic behavior by regulating the expression of Cadherin 6.

CONCLUSIONS: Our data provide new insights into the biology driving metastasis in PTCs and highlight how lncRNAs cooperate with coding transcripts to sustain these processes. PMID: 32495722 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Long non-coding RNA NBR2 is a transcript of the neighbor of BRCA1 gene 2 and can regulate tumor development. However, there is little information on the role of NBR2 in the progression of thyroid cancers (TC). Here, we show that NBR2 expression is down-regulated in TC tissues and associated with histologic subtypes of TC. NBR2 expression was variably reduced in different TC cells. While NBR2 silencing significantly enhanced the malignancy of BCPAP cells by increasing cell proliferation, clonogenicity, wound healing, and invasion as well as tumor growth in vivo, and decreasing spontaneous apoptosis, NBR2 over-expression had...

CONCLUSIONS: The expression of LINC00163 in NSCLC tissues and cells is upregulated, and highly expressed LINC00163 can promote PTC cell proliferation and metastasis by regulating the EMT. PMID: 32495885 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractThe expression of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) is an established prerequisite for the administration of checkpoint inhibitor therapy and is of prognostic value in several cancer types. Data concerning the potential effect of PD-L1 on the prognosis of thyroid carcinoma are limited. Therefore, this study aimed to provide a systematic review of the published data on this topic. The literature was reviewed to gather and quantify evidence on the prognostic role of PD-L1 in follicular epithelial derived thyroid carcinomas and determine its association with clinicopathological parameters. A meta-analysis was performe...

CONCLUSIONS: Propofol suppresses migration, invasion, and EMT in papillary thyroid carcinoma cells by regulating miR-122 expression. The findings may indicate significant clinical implications for anesthetic agents to prevent metastasis and improve outcomes in papillary thyroid carcinoma. PMID: 32432774 [PubMed - in process]

This study investigated the role of fulcosytransferase VII (FUT7) in the progression of follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC). FUT7 expression was found to be upregulated in FTC compared to paracancerous thyroid tissue, and in FTC with T2 stage of TMN classification compared to FTC with T1 stage. FUT7 overexpression promoted cell proliferation, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), and the migration and invasion of primary FTC cell line FTC-133. Consistently, FUT7 knock-down inhibited cell proliferation, EMT, as well as the migration and invasion of the metastatic FTC cell line FTC-238. Mechanistic investigation revealed t...

Abstract Head and neck cancer (HNC), which includes epithelial malignancies of the upper aerodigestive tract (oral cavity, oropharynx, pharynx, hypopharynx, larynx, and thyroid), are slowly but consistently increasing, while the overall survival rate remains unsatisfactory. Because of the multifunctional anatomical intricacies of the head and neck, disease progression and therapy-related side effects often severely affect the patient's appearance and self-image, as well as their ability to breathe, speak, and swallow. Patients with HNC require a multidisciplinary approach involving surgery, radiation therapy, and ...

This study investigated the impact of androgen receptor (AR) gene expression on the clinical features and progression of PTC. The levels of AR mRNA and protein in frozen, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples from PTC and adjacent normal thyroid tissue were assessed by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction and immunohistochemical staining, respectively, and the relationships between AR expression and clinical features were analyzed. The thyroid cancer cell lines, BCPAP and TPC-1, were used to evaluate the effects of AR on the regulation of cell migration, and key epithelial–mesenchymal trans...

In this study, we validated 2D and 3D tissue cultures as methods to corroborate the feasibility of viable cryopreservation of tumor tissue. This proof-of-principle study, if more widely implemented, should improve accessibility of human viable tumor tissue/cells in a time-independent manner for many basic, preclinical, and translational assays.
