Non-coding RNA Biomarkers in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma

The authors focus on three types of well-established ncRNAs — microRNAs (miRNAs), long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), and circular RNAs (circRNAs) — and discuss their potential as diagnostic, prognostic and predictive biomarkers in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

Anticancer Effects of miR-124 Delivered by BM-MSC Derived Exosomes on Cell Proliferation, Epithelial Mesenchymal Transition, and Chemotherapy Sensitivity of Pancreatic Cancer Cells

miR-124 or EZH2 was overexpressed in AsPC-1 and PANC1 cells. Then, the effects on cell viability, apoptosis, invasion, migration and epithelial mesenchymal transition were evaluated. The roles of miR-124 on the expression and function of EZH2 in pancreatic tumors were determined by dual luciferase reporter assay. Subsequently, miR-124 was transfected to bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (BM-MSCs), and the BM-MSCs derived exosomes were isolated and co-cultured with AsPC-1 and PANC1 cells, or injected into pancreatic cancer tumor-bearing mice.

Establishing a Living Biobank of Patient-Derived Organoids of Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms of the Pancreas

Organoids are an ideal preclinical platform to study intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs), and the objective of the current investigation was to establish a living biobank of patient-derived organoids from IPMNs.

Neurotensin Receptor 1 Signaling Promotes Pancreatic Cancer Progression

Investigators used sublines to screen molecular targets for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. Among the genes with increased expression levels in the sublines, they focused on those encoding cell surface receptors that may be involved in the interactions between cancer cells and the tumor microenvironment.
