    Feng Jiang*1, Yan Shi†1, Hong Lu, Guojun Li*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.5, pp. 381-389, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14685034103392

    Abstract Armadillo repeat-containing protein 8 (ARMC8) plays an important role in regulating cell migration, proliferation, tissue maintenance, signal transduction, and tumorigenesis. However, the expression pattern and role of ARMC8 in osteosarcoma are still unclear. In this study, our aims were to examine the effects of ARMC8 on osteosarcoma and to explore its underlying mechanism. Our results demonstrated that ARMC8 was overexpressed in osteosarcoma cell lines. Knockdown of ARMC8 significantly inhibited osteosarcoma cell proliferation in vitro and markedly inhibited xenograft tumor growth in vivo. ARMC8 silencing also suppressed the epithelial– mesenchymal transition (EMT) phenotype, as well as More >

    Yu Wang*†1, Hui Leng†1, Hui Chen*‡, Lei Wang*, Nan Jiang*, Xin Huo, Bin Yu*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.5, pp. 361-369, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14685034103310

    Abstract Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2T (UBE2T), a member of the E2 family, was found to be overexpressed in a great many cancers such as bladder cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer. However, there have been no reports on the role of UBE2T in osteosarcoma. In this study, we tried to make the effects of UBE2T on osteosarcoma clear. The study results showed that UBE2T was overexpressed in osteosarcoma tissues and cell lines. Moreover, UBE2T knockdown inhibited osteosarcoma cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. We also observed that UBE2T downregulation could suppress the activity of the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway. More >

    Min Zhao*, Zhiying Su, Shiyang Zhang, Liangjin Zhuang§, Yudi Xie*, Xiaodong Li*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.5, pp. 353-360, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14685034103275

    Abstract Ovarian cancer (OC) is one of the most common gynecological malignancies. MicroRNAs (miRs) play a crucial role in the development and progression of OC, but the underlying mechanism remains largely unclear. Our study investigated the regulatory role of miR-148a in OC cell proliferation and invasion. We found that miR- 148a was significantly downregulated in OC tissues compared to their matched adjacent nontumor tissues. In addition, its expression was also reduced in OC cell lines (SKOV3, ES-2, OVCAR, and A2780) compared to normal ovarian epithelial cells. Overexpression of miR-148a caused a significant decrease in OC cell… More >

    Xuexin Gao*, Xuezhen Gao, Chao Li*, Yukun Zhang*, Lei Gao

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.5, pp. 337-343, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14666990347671

    Abstract Lung cancer remains a critical health concern worldwide. Long noncoding RNAs with ultraconserved elements have recently been implicated in human tumorigenesis. The present study investigated the role of ultraconserved element 338 (uc.338) in the regulation of cell proliferation and metastasis in human lung cancer. Our data showed that the expression of uc.338 in lung cancer was remarkably increased in vivo and in vitro. Depletion of uc.338 with specific siRNA interference retarded the cell proliferative rate in lung cancer cell lines NCI-H929 and H1688. Furthermore, knockdown of uc.338 caused cell cycle arrest in the G0/G1 phase in More >

    Knockdown of REV7 Inhibits Breast Cancer Cell Migration and Invasion

    Liu Feng*†, Wang Wei*, Zhang Heng, Han Yantao, Wang Chunbo

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.5, pp. 315-325, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14666990347590

    Abstract REV7 (also known as MAD2L2) is a multifunctional protein involved in DNA damage tolerance, cell cycle regulation, gene expression, and carcinogenesis. Although its expression is reportedly associated with poor prognosis in several kinds of human cancers, the significance of REV7 expression in breast malignancies is unclear. In this study, REV7 was found to be increased in breast cancer. We found that knockdown of REV7 inhibited the migration, invasion, and epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) of breast cancer cells. Meanwhile, overexpression of REV7 promoted the migration, invasion, and EMT of breast cancer cells. As shown by Western blot, More >

    Qiang Lu, Zhe Liu, Zhuo Li, Jia Chen, Zhi Liao, Wan-rui Wu, Yuan-wei Li

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.5, pp. 305-313, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14666990347437

    Abstract Tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a)-induced protein 8-like 2 (TNFAIP8L2, TIPE2) is involved in the invasion and metastasis of human tumors. However, the functional role of TIPE2 in prostate cancer remains unclear. In the present study, we explored the role of TIPE2 in prostate cancer and cancer progression including the molecular mechanism that drives TIPE2-mediated oncogenesis. Our results showed that TIPE2 was lowly expressed in human prostate cancer tissues and cell lines. In addition, restored TIPE2 obviously inhibits proliferation in prostate cancer cells. TIPE2 overexpression also suppresses the epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) process and migration/invasion in prostate cancer More >

    Knockdown of CUL4B Suppresses the Proliferation and Invasion in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells

    Xuguang Wang*, Zhe Chen

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.4, pp. 271-277, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14666990347473

    Abstract Cullin 4B (CUL4B), a scaffold protein that assembles CRL4B ubiquitin ligase complexes, was found to be overexpressed in many types of tumors. However, the expression pattern and role of CUL4B in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain largely unknown. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated the role of CUL4B in NSCLC, and the underlying mechanism was also explored. Our results showed that CUL4B was highly expressed in NSCLC cell lines. Silencing CUL4B obviously inhibited proliferation and migration/invasion of NSCLC cells, and it also suppressed the epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) progress in NSCLC cells. Furthermore, knockdown More >

    Shengchao Zhang, Jun Yuan, Ruheng Zheng

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.4, pp. 263-269, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14666990347392

    Abstract Recently, deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) are emerging as new regulators in cancer progression. However, understanding of the involvement of DUBs in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is just beginning. In this study, we investigated the expression and biological function of ubiquitin-specific peptidase 17 (USP17) in NSCLC progression in vitro and in vivo. We found that the expression of USP17 was higher than in a normal control. We further efficiently depleted USP17 expression in two different NSCLC cells, A549 and H1299. The anchorage-independent growth ability of these cells, estimated by soft agar colony formation assay, was significantly More >

    Guoqiang Zhang*1, Zengyan Liu†1, Yong Han*, Xiaohong Wang*, Zhenlin Yang*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.4, pp. 233-238, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14648701447977

    Abstract Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is associated with high recurrence rates of metastasis and death. miR-509 has been reported to be a tumor suppressor in many cancers, but its effect in TNBC has not yet been identified. In this article, we explored the effects of miR-509 on the malignant phenotype of TNBC cells, including proliferation, apoptosis, migration, and invasion. We transiently transfected TNBC cells, Hs578T, with miR-509 mimic. Upon transfection, the expression of miR-509 was upregulated about 50-fold compared with cells transfected with scramble mimic. Overexpression of miR-509 inhibited cell proliferation, induced cell apoptosis, and suppressed More >
