Lentiviral Gene Therapy Vectors Encoding VIP Suppressed Diabetes-Related Inflammation and Augmented Pancreatic Beta-Cell Proliferation

The authors suggested the observed therapeutic effect of lentiviral vector carrying vasoactive intestinal peptide(VIP) gene was due to the repression of diabetes-induced inflammation, its insulinotropic properties, and VIP-induced beta-cell proliferation.

miR-4634 Augments the Anti-Tumor Effects of RAD001 and Associates Well with Clinical Prognosis of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

miRNA microarray analysis showed that miR-4634 levels in A549 cells increased significantly after everolimus treatment. Decreased expression of miR-4634 was also found in non-small-cell lung carcinoma cell lines and patients’ tumors by qPCR.

CircularRNA-9119 Protects Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells from Apoptosis by Intercepting miR-26a/JAK1/STAT3 Signaling

Investigators showed that circ9119 could modulate apoptosis, and broadly, cell proliferation by competitively binding miR-26a, which targeted JAK1-STAT3, in hepatocellular carcinoma cell lines.

Src Family Tyrosine Kinases in Intestinal Homeostasis, Regeneration and Tumorigenesis

The authors review recent findings on Src family kinase (SFK) signalling during intestinal homeostasis, regeneration and tumorigenesis. They also describe the key nongenetic mechanisms underlying SFK tumour activities in colorectal cancer, and discuss how these mechanisms could be exploited in therapeutic strategies to target SFK signalling in metastatic colon cancer.

Roniciclib Down-Regulates Stemness and Inhibits Cell Growth by Inducing Nucleolar Stress in Neuroblastoma

Scientists found that neurospheres derived from neuroblastoma stem-like cells showed a homogeneous staining for several key nucleolar proteins, such as Nucleolin, Nucleophosmin-1, Glypican-2 and PES-1.

Oncogenic Smurf1 Promotes PTEN Wild-Type Glioblastoma Growth by Mediating PTEN Ubiquitylation

Smurf1 promotes cell growth and colony formation by accelerating cell cycle and aberrant signaling pathways. In addition, the authors showed that Smurf1 ubiquitylates and degrades phosphatase and tensin homolog.

Lentiviral Gene Therapy Vectors Encoding VIP Suppressed Diabetes-Related Inflammation and Augmented Pancreatic Beta-Cell Proliferation

The therapeutic efficacy of LentiVIP was tested in a multiple low-dose STZ-induced animal model of type 1 diabetes. LentiVIP delivery into diabetic animals reduced hyperglycemia, improved glucose tolerance, and prevented weight loss.
