    miR-4262 Promotes Proliferation and Invasion of Human Breast Cancer Cells Through Directly Targeting KLF6 and KLF15

    Ke Wang, Yu Ren, Yang Liu, Jian Zhang, Jian-jun He

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 277-283, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14732514133203

    Abstract miRNAs have been shown to be involved in breast cancer growth and progression. miR-4262 is a potential tumor promoter in human cancers. In this study, we first investigated the role of miR-4262 in the proliferation and invasion of human breast cancer cells. Our results showed that, compared with the adjacent tissues and MCF-10A normal breast epithelial cells, miR-4262 was markedly increased in the breast cancer tissues and five cell lines, including MDA-MB-231, MDA-MB-468, MDA-MB-435, SKBR3, and MCF-7. Then the miR- 4262 mimic or oligo anta-miR-4262 was transfected into MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines.… 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.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 >

    MicroRNA-342 Prohibits Proliferation and Invasion of Melanoma Cells by Directly Targeting Zinc-Finger E-Box-Binding Homeobox 1

    Quan Shi*†, Qi He*, Jing Wei*

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.9, pp. 1447-1455, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15193823766141

    Abstract As documented in numerous studies, microRNAs (miRNAs) play key roles in various biological processes associated with melanoma occurrence and development. In this study, we found that miRNA-342 (miR-342) was significantly downregulated in melanoma tissues and cell lines. Additionally, the ectopic expression of miR-342 prohibited the cell proliferation and invasion of melanoma. Moreover, zinc-finger E-box-binding homeobox 1 (ZEB1) was identified as a direct target gene of miR-342 in melanoma. Similar with the results induced by miR-342 overexpression, ZEB1 knockdown attenuated cell proliferation and invasion in melanoma. Furthermore, the restoration of ZEB1 expression reversed the suppressive effects More >

    Zhiqiang Liu*1, Qiang Li*1, Xin Zhao, Bin Cui*, Libo Zhang*, Qiang Wang*

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.9, pp. 1439-1446, 2018, DOI:https://doi.org/10.3727/096504018X15189093975640

    Abstract Numerous studies have suggested that microRNAs (miRNAs) are dysregulated in osteosarcoma (OS), implicating miRNAs in OS initiation and progression. Therefore, knowledge of aberrantly expressed miRNAs in OS may provide novel mechanistic insights into the tumorigenesis and tumor development of OS and facilitate therapeutic methods for patients with this aggressive bone neoplasm. In this study, data obtained from reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) revealed that miR-935 was significantly decreased in OS tissues and cell lines. Restoration expression of miR-935 obviously restricted proliferation and invasion of OS cells. In addition, high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1)… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.9, pp. 1401-1409, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15188747585738

    Abstract Accumulated studies have strongly implicated aberrantly expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) in carcinogenesis and cancer progression of various cancers, including colorectal cancer (CRC). Hence, a comprehensive study of miRNAs and their association with CRC may be a promising therapeutic method for patients with this malignancy. MicroRNA-744 (miR-744) is abnormally expressed in several types of human cancer. Thus far, little is known about the expression, biological roles, and exact mechanisms of miR-744 in CRC. Thus, the present study measured the expression level of miR-744 and investigated its roles and associated molecular mechanisms in CRC. This study demonstrated that… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.9, pp. 1355-1363, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15154094331876

    Abstract Dysregulated microRNA (miRNA) expression is involved in the occurrence and development of colorectal cancer (CRC) through the regulation of various important physiological events. Hence, miRNAs may be used as effective targets for CRC treatment; however, this hypothesis warrants further investigation. miRNA-511 (miR-511) plays vital roles in the progression of different tumor types. However, the expression, exact role, and the mechanisms underlying the regulation of colorectal carcinogenesis and progression by miR-511 remain poorly understood. This study presents that miR-511 expression was decreased in CRC tissues and cell lines compared with that in adjacent nonneoplastic tissues and More >

    MicroRNA-598 Inhibits Cell Proliferation and Invasion of Glioblastoma by Directly Targeting Metastasis Associated in Colon Cancer-1 (MACC1)

    Ning Wang*1, Yang Zhang†1, Huaxin Liang

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.8, pp. 1275-1283, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15185735627746

    Abstract The dysregulation of microRNA (miRNA) expression is closely related with tumorigenesis and tumor development in glioblastoma (GBM). In this study, we found that miRNA-598 (miR-598) expression was significantly downregulated in GBM tissues and cell lines. Restoring miR-598 expression inhibited cell proliferation and invasion in GBM. Moreover, we validated that metastasis associated in colon cancer-1 (MACC1) is a novel target of miR-598 in GBM. Restoring MACC1 expression reversed the inhibitory effects of miR-598 overexpression on GBM cells. In addition, miR-598 overexpression suppressed Met/ AKT pathway activation in GBM. Our results provided compelling evidence that miR-598 serves More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.7, pp. 987-996, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504017X15140534417184

    Abstract Cervical cancer is the fourth most common malignancy among females worldwide. MicroRNA-379 (miR-379) is aberrantly expressed in multiple human cancer types. However, the expression pattern, roles, and detailed regulatory mechanisms of miR-379 in cervical cancer remain unknown. In this study, we found that miR-379 expression was downregulated in cervical cancer tissues and cell lines. Low miR-379 expression was correlated with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage, lymph node metastasis, and distant metastasis. Additionally, miR-379 overexpression suppressed the proliferation and invasion of cervical cancer cells. Furthermore, V-crk avian sarcoma virus CT10 oncogene homolog-like (CRKL) More >

    Dong Yang, Jian-Jun Wang, Jin-Song Li, Qian-Yu Xu

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.4, pp. 519-528, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504017X15000757094686

    Abstract Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for about 85% of all lung cancer cases. Absence of miR-103 has recently been identified to be associated with metastatic capacity of primary lung tumors. However, the exact role of miR-103 in NSCLC and the molecular mechanism are unclear. In the present study, we showed that miR-103 expression was reduced in NSCLC tissues and cells. miR-103 expression was negatively correlated with tumor size and stage. The overall survival was longer in patients with higher miR-103 level than in those with lower miR-103 expression. miR-103 inhibited cell proliferation in A549… More >
