    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 >

    Jian Shen, Minzhe Li

    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 >

    Wei Li, Weidong Zhao, Zhaohui Lu, Wen Zhang, Xuan Yang

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.8, pp. 1285-1294, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15166193231711

    Abstract Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) growth arrest-specific transcript 5 (GAS5) has been revealed to be associated with the progression of various cancers. However, the biological roles of GAS5 in esophageal cancer (EC) remain unclear. We aimed to thoroughly explore the functions of GAS5 in EC. The results showed that GAS5 expression was increased in EC cells (ECA109, TE-1, TE-3, and EC9706) compared to SHEE cells. Knockdown of GAS5 decreased cell viability, migration, and invasion and induced apoptosis in EC9706 cells. Moreover, miR-301a appeared to be directly sponged by GAS5, and miR-301a suppression obviously alleviated the protumor 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.8, pp. 1267-1274, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15172227703244

    Abstract B7-homolog 4 (B7-H4), a member of the B7 family of costimulatory molecules, has been reported to be upregulated in urothelial cell carcinoma. This study was conducted to explore the biological role of B7-H4 in the aggressiveness of bladder cancer and the associated molecular mechanism. We found that the mRNA and protein levels of B7-H4 were significantly greater in bladder cancer cell lines than in SV-HUC-1 (normal human urothelial cells). Overexpression of B7-H4 significantly promoted bladder cancer cell migration and invasion, whereas knockdown of B7-H4 exerted an opposite effect. However, the growth of bladder cancer cells More >
