    Suppression of Asparaginyl Endopeptidase Inhibits Polyomavirus Middle T Antigen-Induced Tumor Formation and Metastasis

    Cheng Xu*1, Lu Cao*1, Jianhua Liu†1, Zhongrun Qian, Yu Peng§, Wenjing Zhu§, Yongming Qiu, Yingying Lin‡¶

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.3, pp. 407-415, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14743350548249

    Abstract Elevated circulating asparaginyl endopeptidase (AEP), a novel lysosomal protease, has been found in breast cancer, and AEP is thus considered to be a prognostic factor in this disease. However, the pathological functions of circulating AEP in the development of breast cancer and the potential of AEP-targeted therapy remain unclear. We used MMTV-PyVmT transgenic mice, which spontaneously develop mammary tumors. Western blotting showed overexpression of AEP in both primary tumor tissue and lung metastases compared to their normal counterparts. Moreover, the concentration of circulating AEP gradually increased in the serum during the development of mammary tumors. More >

    Zhao Xiaoguang*1,2, Liu Meirong†1, Zhang Jingjing, Zhang Ruishen§, Zhang Qing, Tan Xiaofeng†2

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.3, pp. 373-380, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14741486659473

    Abstract The long noncoding CPS1 intronic transcript 1 (lncRNA CPS1-IT1) is a recently identified tumor suppressor in the lncRNA family of proteins. Whether this lncRNA plays any functional role in solid tumors remains largely unknown. The present study aimed to investigate the role of lncRNA CPS1-IT1 in human lung cancer. Expression of lncRNA CPS1-IT1 was initially assessed in human lung cancer and in a series of lung cancer cell lines. The effects of CPS1-IT1 overexpression on cell proliferation, migration, and invasion were examined in lung cancer cell lines A549 and 95D. It was found that lncRNA… More >

    Juntao Yao*†, Xuan Yao, Tao Tian*, Xiao Fu*, Wenjuan Wang*, Suoni Li§, Tingting Shi*, Aili Suo*, Zhiping Ruan*, Hui Guo*, Kejun Nan*, Xiongwei Huo

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.3, pp. 305-316, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14734149559061

    Abstract ABCB5 belongs to the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) superfamily, which is recognized for playing a role in the failure of chemotherapy. ABCB5 has also been found to be overexpressed at the transcriptional level in a number of cancer subtypes, including breast cancer. However, the exact mechanism ABCB5 uses on cancer cell metastasis is still unclear. In the present study, we demonstrate that ABCB5 expression was increased in metastatic tissues when compared with nonmetastatic tissues. ABCB5 can significantly enhance metastasis and epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT), while knockdown of ABCB5 inhibited these processes. Microarray analysis indicated that ZEB1 may More >

    CKLF-Like MARVEL Transmembrane Domain-Containing Member 3 (CMTM3) Inhibits the Proliferation and Tumorigenisis in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells

    Wujun Li*, Shaobo Zhang

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 285-293, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14732523471442

    Abstract The CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain-containing 3 (CMTM3), a member of the CMTM family, was found in several human tumors and plays an important role in the development and progression of tumors. However, the role of CMTM3 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains largely unknown. Thus, in the present study, we explored its expression pattern in human HCC cell lines, as well as its functions in HCC cells. Our results demonstrated that the expression of CMTM3 is lowly expressed in HCC cell lines. In vitro, we found that overexpression of CMTM3 obviously inhibited the proliferation, invasion, and More >

    Xin Zhang*, Shaowen Li, Chunli Dong, Xiuying Xie*, Yunping Zhang*

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 259-265, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14732503870766

    Abstract Ovarian cancer is one of the leading causes of gynecological cancer-related deaths worldwide. We investigated the role of a newly discovered long noncoding RNA, NR_026689, in cell proliferation, metastasis, and apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells. Our results showed that NR_026689 was overexpressed in both clinical ovarian cancer patients and cultured ovarian cancer cells. Knockdown of NR_026689 in HO-8910PM cells significantly decreased the cell proliferative rate and the ability to form colonies. Transwell assays revealed that depletion of NR_026689 suppressed cell migration ability by 68% and cell invasive capacity by 71% in HO-8910PM cells. Moreover, specific More >

    CXCL5 Plays a Promoting Role in Osteosarcoma Cell Migration and Invasion in Autocrine- and Paracrine-Dependent Manners

    Hongsheng Dang, Wuzhou Wu, Bo Wang, Cao Cui, Juwei Niu, Jie Chen, Ziqiu Chen, Yi Liu

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 177-186, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14732772150343

    Abstract CXCL5, a CXC-type chemokine, is an important attractant for granulocytic immune cells by binding to its receptor CXCR2. Recently, CXCL5/CXCR2 has been found to play an oncogenic role in many human cancers. However, the exact role of CXCL5 in osteosarcoma cell migration and invasion has not been revealed. Here we found that the protein expression of CXCL5 was significantly increased in osteosarcoma tissues compared with that in matched adjacent nontumor tissues. Moreover, the expression of CXCL5 was significantly associated with advanced clinical stage and metastasis. Further investigation showed that the CXCL5 expression levels were also… More >

    Hailin Pang1, Ningqiang Ma1, Mi Jiao, Weiwei Shen, Bo Xin, Tongfei Wang, Feng Zhang, Lili Liu, Helong Zhang

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 35-42, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14719078133249

    Abstract The bone is among the most common sites of metastasis in patients with lung cancer. Over 30%–40% of lung cancers can develop bone metastasis, and no effective therapeutic methods exist in clinic cases. Wnt/β-catenin signaling and Dickkopf1 (DKK1) play important roles in the progression of lung cancer, which preferentially metastasizes to the skeleton. However, the role of DKK1 in osteotropism of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) remains to be elucidated. This study aimed to define the role of DKK1 in SCLC bone metastasis and investigate the underlying mechanisms. Our results demonstrated that the expression level… More >

    MicroRNA-200a Suppresses Cell Invasion and Migration by Directly Targeting GAB1 in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Jianlin Wang*1, Wenjie Song*1, Weiwei Shen†1, Xisheng Yang*, Wei Sun*, Sshibin Qu*, Runze Shang*, Ben Ma*, Meng Pu*, Kaishan Tao*, Kefeng Dou*, Haimin Li*

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 1-10, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14685034103798

    Abstract MicroRNA-200a (miR-200a) is frequently downregulated in most cancer types and plays an important role in carcinogenesis and cancer progression. In this study, we determined that miR-200a was downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues and cell lines, consistent with the results of our previous study. Because a previous study suggested that downregulation of miR-200a is correlated with HCC metastasis, we aimed to elucidate the mechanism underlying the role of miR-200a in metastasis in HCC. Here we observed that overexpression of miR-200a resulted in suppression of HCC metastatic ability, including HCC cell migration, invasion, and metastasis, in More >

    lncRNA NORAD Contributes to Colorectal Cancer Progression by Inhibition of miR-202-5p

    Jie Zhang*, Xiao-Yan Li*, Ping Hu, Yuan-Sheng Ding*

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.9, pp. 1411-1418, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15190844870055

    Abstract Previous study indicates that long noncoding RNA NORAD could serve as a competing endogenous RNA to pancreatic cancer metastasis. However, its role in colorectal cancer (CRC) needs to be investigated. In the present study, we found that the expression of NORAD was significantly upregulated in CRC tissues. Furthermore, the expression of NORAD was positively related with CRC metastasis and patients’ poor prognosis. Knockdown of NORAD markedly inhibited CRC cell proliferation, migration, and invasion but induced cell apoptosis in vitro. In vivo experiments also indicated an inhibitory effect of NORAD on tumor growth. Mechanistically, we found More >
