CircRPN2 Inhibits Aerobic Glycolysis and Metastasis in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Three metastasis-associated circRNAs identified in a previous circRNA-sequencing study were screened and validated in two hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cohorts. CircRPN2 was downregulated in highly metastatic HCC cell lines and HCC tissues with metastasis.

Sox9/CXCL5 Axis Facilitates Tumor Cell Growth and Invasion in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Investigators observed that the increase of Sox9 significantly promoted hepatocellular carcinoma cell growth and invasion in cell cultures, whereas knockdown of Sox9 showed the opposite effects, suggesting that Sox9 may regulate the proliferation and invasion of hepatoma cells in an autocrine manner.

The Mitochondrial β-Oxidation Enzyme HADHA Restrains Hepatic Glucagon Response by Promoting β-Hydroxybutyrate Production

The authors showed that glucagon challenge impaired the expression of HADHA. Liver-specific HADHA overexpression reversed hepatic gluconeogenesis in mice, while HADHA knockdown augmented glucagon response.

Dexmedetomidine Promotes Apoptosis and Suppresses Proliferation of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells via microRNA-130a/EGR1 Axis

Investigators determined whether dexmedetomidine might have directly regulated miR-130a/early growth response 1 (EGR1) axis in hepatocellular carcinoma and explored the related mechanisms.

Responsiveness of PNPLA3 and Lipid-Related Transcription Factors Is Dependent upon Fatty Acid Profile in Primary Bovine Hepatocytes

The authors determined if patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 3 (PNPLA3), as well as other lipases, transcription factors, or fatty acid (FA)-mediated genes, were regulated by FA mimicking liver lipid accumulation and liver lipid clearing (RECOV) or singular FA physiologically found in dairy cows at 0.5 mM of circulating RECOV.

RNF43/ZNRF3 Loss Predisposes to Hepatocellular-Carcinoma by Impairing Liver Regeneration and Altering the Liver Lipid Metabolic Ground-State

Using hepatocyte-, hepatoblast- and ductal cell-derived organoids, investigators demonstrated that the differentiation defects and lipid alterations were, in part, cell-autonomous.
