    Propofol Inhibits Lung Cancer A549 Cell Growth and Epithelial–Mesenchymal Transition Process by Upregulation of MicroRNA-1284

    Wei-Zhen Liu, Nian Liu

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.1, pp. 1-8, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15172738893959

    Abstract Propofol has been widely used in lung cancer resections. Some studies have demonstrated that the effects of propofol might be mediated by microRNAs (miRNAs). This study aimed to investigate the effects and mechanisms of propofol on lung cancer cells by regulation of miR-1284. A549 cells were treated with different concentrations of propofol, while transfected with miR-1284 inhibitor, si-FOXM1, and their negative controls. Cell viability, migration, and invasion, and the expression of miR-1284, FOXM1, and epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) factors were detected by CCK-8, Transwell, qRT-PCR, and Western blot assays, respectively. In addition, the regulatory and binding… More >

    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.27, No.2, pp. 281-282, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504019X15476499940873

    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 >

    Dandan Wu*1, Jun Liu†1, Jianliang Chen*, Haiyan He*, Hang Ma*, Xuedong Lv*

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 227-235, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15213089759999

    Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported to be involved in many human cancers and tumor progression. The dysregulation of miR-449a is found in many types of malignancies and is associated with tumor growth, migration, and invasion. However, its expression and function in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) still remains unclear. In our study, miR-449a was found to be downregulated in both NSCLC tissues and cell lines, and low miR-449a expression was obviously associated with tumor differentiation, TMN stage, and poor overall survival (OS). Moreover, we demonstrated that miR-449a could inhibit tumor proliferation, migration, and invasion in More >

    Juan Gu*, Chang-fu Cui, Li Yang, Ling Wang*, Xue-hua Jiang*

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 193-202, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15150662230295

    Abstract Colon cancer (CC) is the third most common cancer worldwide. Emodin is an anthraquinone-active substance that has the ability to affect tumor progression. Our study aims to explore the effects and the relevant mechanism of emodin on the invasion and migration of CC in vitro and in vivo. In our study, we found that emodin inhibited the invasion and migration abilities of RKO cells and decreased the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7), MMP-9, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in a dose-dependent manner. Further research suggested that emodin inhibited EMT by increasing the mRNA level… More >

    Ni Kou*1, Sha Liu*1, Xiaojie Li*, Wuwei Li*, Weijian Zhong*, Lin Gui*, Songling Chai*, Xiang Ren*, Risu Na*, Tao Zeng, Huiying Liu*

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 173-182, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15202945197589

    Abstract The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) H19 has been described to participate in the metastasis of various tumors. Nevertheless, whether H19 promotes or impedes tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) cell migration and invasion remains controversial. Here we found that the expression of H19 was elevated in TSCC tissues compared with adjacent normal tissues. Moreover, we demonstrated that the expression of H19 was higher in metastasized tumors compared with unmetastasized tumors. Consistently, TSCC cells express higher levels of H19 than human squamous cells. Subsequently, depletion of H19 impaired the migration and invasion abilities of TSCC cells. Mechanistically, More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 165-171, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15193506006164

    Abstract miR-30c has been acknowledged as a tumor suppressor in various human cancers, such as ovarian cancer, gastric cancer, and prostate cancer. However, the role of miR-30c in glioblastoma (GBM) needs to be investigated. In our study, we found that the expression of miR-30c was significantly downregulated in GBM tissues and cell lines. We found that overexpression of miR-30c inhibited cellular proliferation of GBM cells in vitro and in vivo. More GBM cells were arrested in the G0 phase after miR-30c overexpression. Moreover, we showed that miR-30c overexpression suppressed the migration and invasion of GBM cells. Mechanistically, More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.2, pp. 147-155, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504017X15021536183517

    Abstract Glioma is the most common malignant tumor of the nervous system. Studies have shown the microRNA-26b (miR-26b)/cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) axis in the development and progression in many tumor cells. Our study aims to investigate the effect and mechanism of the miR-26b/COX-2 axis in glioma. Decreased expression of miR-26b with increased levels of COX-2 was found in glioma tissues compared with matched normal tissues. A strong negative correlation was observed between the level of miR-26b and COX-2 in 30 glioma tissues. The miR-26b was then overexpressed by transfecting a miR-26b mimic into U-373 cells. The invasive cell More >

    Abstract Profilin 2 (PFN2) was found to be mainly expressed in neurons and involved in the development of the brain. In recent years, emerging evidence indicated that PFN2 is also significantly upregulated in various cancers including head and neck cancer (HNSC) and influences cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. However, the role of PFN2 in HNSC development and progression remains unclear. The aim of our study was to investigate the role of PFN2 in the development of HNSC and its possible molecular mechanisms. Bioinformatics showed that increased expression of PFN2 in tumors correlated highly with poor… More >

    Exosomal miR-1228 From Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts Promotes Cell Migration and Invasion of Osteosarcoma by Directly Targeting SCAI

    Jian-Wei Wang, Xiao-Feng Wu, Xiao-Juan Gu, Xing-Hua Jiang

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.9, pp. 979-986, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15336368805108

    Abstract Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) play a predominant role in regulating tumor progression. Understanding how CAFs communicate with osteosarcoma is crucial for developing novel approaches for osteosarcoma therapy. Exosomes are able to transmit messages between cells. In this study, we demonstrated that CAFs transfer exosomes to osteosarcoma cells, which promotes osteosarcoma cell migration and invasion. Using a miRNA microarray analysis, we identified 13 miRNAs that are significantly increased in exosomes derived from cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) and corresponding paracancer fibroblasts (PAFs). In vitro studies further validated that the levels of microRNA-1228 (miR-1228) were increased in CAFs, its secreted More >
