    The Downregulation of MicroRNA-10b and its Role in Cervical Cancer

    Dongling Zou*, Qi Zhou, Dong Wang, Lili Guan*, Li Yuan*†, Shaolin Li*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.2, pp. 99-108, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14611963142173

    Abstract It has been demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) act as oncogenes or tumor suppressors in a variety of cancers. Our previous work suggested that miR-10a/b functioned as a tumor suppressor in gastric cancer, and miR-10b was also reported to be significantly downregulated in advanced stage cervical cancer tissues. However, the aberrant expression of miR-10b in cervical cancer and its possible role in cervical carcinogenesis was largely unknown. In this study, we investigated the expression of miR-10b in cervical cancer tissues, carcinoma in situ tissues, mild dysplasia, moderate dysplasia, severe dysplasia tissues, and normal controls. We found More >

    Long Noncoding RNA PVT1 Facilitates Cervical Cancer Progression via Negative Regulating of miR-424

    Ya-Li Gao*1, Zi-Shen Zhao†1, Ming-Yun Zhang*, Li-Jie Han*, Yu-Jin Dong, Bo Xu

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.8, pp. 1391-1398, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504017X14881559833562

    Abstract Emerging evidence suggests that the long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) plasmacytoma variant translocation 1 (PVT1) gene is involved in the pathogenesis of cervical cancer. However, the potential mechanism is rarely reported. Our study found that PVT1 was upregulated in cervical cancer tissue and cell lines. After transfecting PVT1 siRNA, the proliferation, migration, and invasion of cervical cancer cells were markedly decreased. miRNA expression profiles demonstrate that miR-424 was markedly downregulated in cervical cancer tissue. Bioinformatics analysis revealed that miR-424 was potentially targeted by PVT1, which was confirmed by dual-luciferase reporter assay. Pearson’s correlation analysis showed that More >

    Tao Wang, Fan Shi, JiQuan Wang, Zi Liu, Jin Su

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.5, pp. 809-817, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14799180778233

    Abstract Kallistatin has been recognized as an endogenous angiogenesis inhibitor and exerts pleiotropic effects in inhibiting tumor growth, migration, apoptosis, and inflammation. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the potential role and mechanisms of kallistatin in cervical cancer. We demonstrated that kallistatin effectively inhibited cell proliferation and enhanced apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner. Additionally, kallistatin suppressed migration and invasion activities and markedly reduced the expression of matrix-degrading metalloproteinases, progelatinase (MMP-2), MMP-9, and urokinase-type PA (uPA). Kallistatin reversed the epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) and caused the upregulation of epithelial markers such as E-cadherin and inhibited… More >

    Abstract The investigation of specific genes will establish more useful biomarkers for accurate detection and management of gynecological cancers, especially patients with cervical cancer (CCP). The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression level of RIPK4 and EZH2 messenger RNA (RIPK4 and EZH2 mRNA) in CCP. Expression of RIPK4 and EZH2 in the tissues was determined by immunohistochemistry and qRT-PCR methods. Correlations of RIPK4 and EZH2 mRNA with clinical and pathological parameters were analyzed using the Fisher’s exact test. The mRNA level of RIPK4 was significantly upregulated in tumor tissues compared with matched adjacent… More >

    miR-126-5p Restoration Promotes Cell Apoptosis in Cervical Cancer by Targeting Bcl2l2

    Changlin Wang*, Bin Zhou, Min Liu*, Ying Liu*, Rui Gao*

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.4, pp. 463-470, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14685034103879

    Abstract Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers in females, with a high incidence and mortality around the world. However, the pathogenesis in cervical cancer is not completely known. In the present study, we investigated the role of miR-126-5p and Bcl2l2 in cervical cancer cells. First, miR-126-5p expression was aberrantly downregulated in human cervical cancer tumor tissues in comparison with normal tissues, as evaluated by RT-PCR. Consistently, the levels of miR-126-5p were also significantly reduced in cervical cancer cell lines when compared to normal cervical epithelial cells. Flow cytometric analysis showed that the rate… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.3, pp. 381-388, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14741511303522

    Abstract The tripartite motif (TRIM) family of proteins is a class of highly conservative proteins that have been implicated in multiple processes. TRIM59, one member of the TRIM family, has now received recognition as a key regulator in the development and progression of human diseases. However, its role in human tumorigenesis has remained largely unknown. In this study, the effects of TRIM59 expression on cell proliferation and migration were investigated in human cervical cancer cells. The expression of TRIM59 in clinical cervical cancer tissues and cervical cancer cells was initially determined by RT-PCR and Western blot.… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.8, pp. 1215-1225, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504017X15021536183526

    Abstract More and more studies have reported that dysregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) leads to the proliferation and EMT of multiple cancers. Recently, several reports have demonstrated that dysregulation of miR-4262 occurs in numerous cancers. However, its role and precise mechanism in human cervical cancer (CC) have not been well clarified. Hence, this study aimed to explore the biological roles and precise mechanisms of miR-4262 in CC cell lines. The level of miR-4262 was found to be significantly decreased in CC tissues and cell lines. Moreover, decreased expression of miR-4262 was closely related to increased expression of More >

    MicroRNA-519d-3p Inhibits Proliferation and Promotes Apoptosis by Targeting HIF-2α in Cervical Cancer Under Hypoxic Conditions

    Lixia Jiang*1, Shaohua Shi†1, Qiaofa Shi, Huijuan Zhang*, Yu Xia§, Tianyu Zhong*

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.7, pp. 1055-1062, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15152056890500

    Abstract HIF-2α knockdown inhibits proliferation, arrests the cell cycle, and promotes apoptosis and autophagy under hypoxic conditions in cervical cancer. However, the upstream regulatory mechanism of HIF-2α expression is unclear. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) degrade target mRNAs by binding to the 3'-untranslated region of mRNAs. In this study, we investigated the role of miRNAs in the regulation of HIF-2α expression in cervical cancer under hypoxic conditions. miRNAs regulating HIF-2α expression were predicted using TargetScan and miRanda and were determined in cervical cancer under hypoxic conditions by qRT-PCR. Additionally, the targeted regulation of HIF-2α by miR-519d-3p was evaluated by… More >
