RNA sequencing, qRT-PCR, and Western blot analysis were used to identify the aberrant expression and signaling of miR-148a-3p within cells, mice, and patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Researchers implicated the miR-148a-3p/p35/PTEN pathway as an essential contributor to tau hyperphosphorylation and feed-forward regulation in AD.

Scientists showed that cerebrovascular endothelial cell-specific deletion of Pten resulted in a dramatic increase in vesicular transcytosis by the reduction of major facilitator superfamily domain-containing 2a, leading to increased transcellular permeability of the blood-brain barrier.

Macroautophagy/autophagy plays a critical role in spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs) development, but the effect of autophagy on cisplatin-induced SGN injury is unclear. Scientists found that autophagic flux was activated in SGNs after cisplatin damage.

Mimicking the miR‐188‐5p resulted in the up‐regulation of hepatic stellate cell (HSC) activation and proliferation by directly targeting the phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN). Inhibition of miR‐188‐5p reduced the activation and proliferation markers of HSCs through PTEN/AKT pathway.

Scientists found that the expression of miR-21 was negatively correlated with the expression of vacuole membrane protein-1 (VMP1) in colorectal cancer. Transcription of VMP1 activated either by small activating RNA or transcriptional activator GLI3 inhibited miR-21 expression through reducing its transcripts of VMP1-miR-21 and pri-miR-21, while no significant change in miR-21 expression after exogenous overexpression VMP1 in colorectal cancer cell HCT116.
