    MicroRNA-1284 Inhibits Cell Viability and Induces Apoptosis of Ovarian Cancer Cell Line OVCAR3

    Changqing Pan, Dan Wang, Yao Zhang, Wenliang Yu

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.6, pp. 429-435, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14685034103518

    Abstract Ovarian cancer is a malignancy with high mortality among women. Multiple reports show that microRNAs (miRs) act as regulators in ovarian cancer inhibition, while the role of miR-1284 in ovarian cancer is still unknown. This study aimed to investigate the effects of miR-1284 on ovarian cancer cells. Human ovarian cancer cell line OVCAR3 was cultured and transfected with miR-1284 mimics, inhibitors, or control. Viability and apoptosis of transfected cells were then determined by MTT assay, BrdU assay, and flow cytometry. Expression changes of p27, p21, and PI3K/Akt pathway-related proteins were measured by Western blot. Results More >

    MicroRNA-15a Inhibits Proliferation and Induces Apoptosis in CNE1 Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Cells

    Kang Zhu*, Ying He, Cui Xia*, Jing Yan*, Jin Hou*, Demin Kong*, Yeye Yang*, Guoxi Zheng*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.3, pp. 145-151, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14611963142290

    Abstract Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a highly metastatic cancer, frequently occurring in Southeast Asia and Southern China. Several microRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to have an inhibitive effect on NPC, while the effect of miR-15a on NPC remains unclear. Thus, our study aimed to investigate the potential effect of miR-15a on NPC cell proliferation, apoptosis, and possible functional mechanism. Human NPC CNE1 cells were transfected with miR-15a mimics, miR-15a inhibitors, or a control. Afterward, cell viability and apoptosis were assayed by using CCK-8, BrdU assay, and flow cytometry. Moreover, Western blot was used to detect the… More >

    Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor 3 Promotes Cancer Cell Proliferation and Tumorigenesis in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma by Targeting p27

    Huimin Wang*, Hexin Chen, Hang Zhou*, Wenfa Yu*, Zhenmin Lu*

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.9, pp. 1431-1440, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504017X14835311718295

    Abstract Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common malignancy of the head and neck that arises from the nasopharynx epithelium and is highly invasive. Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 3 (CDKN3) belongs to the dualspecificity protein phosphatase family, which plays a key role in regulating cell division. Abnormal expression of CDKN3 has been found in numerous types of cancer. In the current study, we explored the possible role of CDKN3 in cell proliferation, ability to invade, and radiosensitivity in NPC cells. We reported that CDKN3 was upregulated and p27 was downregulated in NPC tissues and is associated with a… More >
