CircVAPA Exerts Oncogenic Property in Non‐Small Cell Lung Cancer by the miR‐876‐5p/WNT5A Axis

RT‐qPCR was used to measure the expression of genes. Actinomycin D and RNase R were employed to examine the stability of circVAPA. CCK‐8, EdU, Transwell, sphere formation assay, and western blot analysis were conducted to examine the changes of NSCLC cells in response to circVAPA knockdown. Luciferase reporter assay was conducted for molecular mechanism.

Declining Lamin B1 Expression Mediates Age-Dependent Decreases of Hippocampal Stem Cell Activity

Researchers showed that the nuclear lamina protein lamin B1 (LB1) was downregulated with age in mouse hippocampal neural stem cells, whereas protein levels of SUN-domain containing protein 1, previously implicated in Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, increased.

Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells Promote Ischemic Repairment and Angiogenesis of Diabetic Foot through Exosome miRNA-21-5p

Exosomes were isolated from MSCs using ultracentrifugation, and further characterized by the nanoparticle tracking analyzer and flow cytometry. RNA sequencing, Western Blot, in vitro cell proliferation, in vivo pro-angiogenesis, as well as ischemic repairment of diabetic foot through rat model were performed to evaluate exosome physiological functions.

Myofibroblast-Specific Msi2 Knockout Inhibits Hepatocellular Carcinoma Progression in a Mouse Model

In vitro analysis demonstrated that myofibroblasts promoted cell proliferation, invasion, and epithelial‐mesenchymal transformation of hepatocellular carcionoma cells, whereas Musashi RNA binding protein 2 (Msi2) deletion in myofibroblasts reversed these effects.

Nuclear IL-33/SMAD Signaling Axis Promotes Cancer Development in Chronic Inflammation

Interleukin (IL)‐33 was highly expressed in the skin and pancreatic epithelial cells in chronic inflammation, leading to a markedly repressed Smad6 expression as well as dramatically upregulated p‐SMAD2/3 and p‐SMAD1/5 in the epithelial cells.

BMP2-Dependent Gene Regulatory Network Analysis Reveals Klf4 as a Novel Transcription Factor of Osteoblast Differentiation

The BMP signaling pathway is widely regarded as one of the most important pathways in vertebrate skeletal biology, of which BMP2 is a potent inducer, governing the osteoblast differentiation of bone marrow stromal cells. Scientists used RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, and animal models to characterize the BMP2-dependent gene regulatory network governing osteoblast lineage commitment.

The Innate Sensor ZBP1-IRF3 Axis Regulates Cell Proliferation in Multiple Myeloma

Investigators showed that Z-DNA-binding protein 1 (ZBP1) was selectively expressed in late B cell development in both human and mouse cells and it is required for optimal T-cell-dependent humoral immune responses.
