    MicroRNA-623 Targets Cyclin D1 to Inhibit Cell Proliferation and Enhance the Chemosensitivity of Cells to 5-Fluorouracil in Gastric Cancer

    Lihua Jiang*1, Wenchuan Yang*1, Weishi Bian, Hailin Yang*, Xia Wu*, Yuhua Li*, Wen Feng*, Xuejian Liu*

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.1, pp. 19-27, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15193469240508

    Abstract The dysregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) plays an important function in the onset and progression of gastric cancer (GC). In addition, aberrantly expressed miRNAs affect the chemosensitivity of GC cells to chemotherapeutic drugs. Hence, miRNA-based targeted therapy might be applied to treat patients with GC exhibiting chemotherapeutic resistance. In this study, miRNA-623 (miR-623) expression was downregulated in GC tissues and cell lines. Functional analysis showed that the restored miR-623 expression could inhibit the proliferation of GC cells and enhance their chemosensitivity to 5-FU via the cell apoptosis pathway. Cyclin D1 (CCND1) was identified as a direct target gene of miR-623 in… More >

    PAR2 Inhibition Enhanced the Sensitivity of Colorectal Cancer Cells to 5-FU and Reduced EMT Signaling

    Qiuying Quan*1, Fengyun Zhong†1, Xinwei Wang, Kai Chen§, Lingchuan Guo*

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.7, pp. 779-788, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15442985680348

    Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the underlying mechanisms that transforming growth factor- (TGF- )-mediated epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in tumor cells contributes to 5-FU resistance. A series of experiments involving cell viability and caspase activity analyses, siRNA transfection, RNA isolation, and quantitative-PCR (qPCR) assay, cell migration analysis, Western blotting analysis of total protein and membrane protein were performed in this study. Mouse xenograft model was used to determine the effect of the PAR2 inhibitor in vivo. In this study, we found that protease-activated receptor 2 (PAR2) induction in 5-FU therapy is correlated with TGF- -mediated EMT and apoptosis… More >

    Pyrotinib Sensitizes 5-Fluorouracil-Resistant HER2+ Breast Cancer Cells to 5-Fluorouracil

    Jianing Yi*, Shuai Chen*, Pingyong Yi, Jinlin Luo*, Meng Fang*, Yang Du*, Lianhong Zou*, Peizhi Fan*

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.5, pp. 519-831, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504020X15960154585410

    Abstract 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) is a widely used chemotherapeutic agent for breast cancer. However, acquired chemoresistance leads to a loss of its efficacy; methods to reverse are urgently needed. Some studies have shown that pyrotinib, an ErbB receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, is effective against HER2+ breast cancer. However, whether pyrotinib sensitizes 5-FU-resistant breast cancer cells to 5-FU is unknown. We hypothesized that the combination of pyrotinib and 5-FU would show synergistic antitumor activity, and pyrotinib could reverse 5-FU resistance in HER2+ breast cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. Our data showed that pyrotinib inhibited the growth of 5-FU-resistant SKBR-3/FU and MDA-MB-453/FU… More >

    Downregulation of MicroRNA-147 Inhibits Cell Proliferation and Increases the Chemosensitivity of Gastric Cancer Cells to 5-Fluorouracil by Directly Targeting PTEN

    Jianjun Shen*1, Weina Niu†1, Hongbo Zhang*, Ma Jun*, Hongyan Zhang*

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.9, pp. 961-963, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504022X16414984936746

    Abstract Gastric cancer is the fourth most common malignancy and the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. This study aimed to investigate the expression patterns, biological roles, and underlying mechanisms of microRNA-147 (miR-147) in gastric cancer. The present study demonstrated that miR-147 was significantly upregulated in gastric cancer tissues and cell lines. Downregulation of miR-147 decreased cell proliferation and enhanced the chemosensitivity of gastric cancer cells to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) through the cell apoptosis pathway. In addition, phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) was mechanically identified as the direct target of miR-147 in gastric cancer. PTEN knockdown reversed the effects of miR-147… More >
