Platelet Lysate Induces Chondrogenic Differentiation of Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells by Regulating the lncRNA H19/miR-29b-3p/SOX9 Axis

Platelet lysate (PL) had been shown to induce chondrogenic differentiation of human umbilical cord‐derived MSCs Scientists investigated whether long non‐coding RNA H19 was involved in this process. Human umbilical cord MSCs were isolated, identified, and cultured in 5% PL‐supplemented chondrogenic differentiation medium

MicroRNA-34a Promotes Apoptosis of Retinal Vascular Endothelial Cells by Targeting SIRT1 in Rats with Diabetic Retinopathy

miR-34a interacted with SIRT1 and suppressed SIRT1 expression. MiR-34a overexpression inhibited proliferation and promoted apoptosis of rat retinal vascular endothelial cells, which was effectively abolished by SIRT1 up-regulation.

LncRNA SNHG10 Promotes the Proliferation and Invasion of Osteosarcoma via Wnt/β-Catenin Signaling

In vitro experiments (including colony formation, CCK-8, wound healing and transwell assays) and in vivo experiments indicated that down-regulation of SNHG10 significantly suppressed the proliferation and invasion of osteosarcoma cells

Long Non-Coding RNA PVT1 Facilitates High Glucose-Induced Cardiomyocyte Death Through the miR-23a-3p/CASP10 Axis

Investigators observed that plasmacytoma variant translocation 1 (PVT1) and caspase‐10 were upregulated while miR‐23a‐3p was downregulated in high glucose‐induced cardiomyocytes. High glucose repressed cardiomyocyte activity and induced cardiomyocyte apoptosis, but this influence was antagonized by PVT1 knockdown or miR‐23a‐3p overexpression.

A Ca2+-Dependent Switch Activates Axonal Casein Kinase 2α Translation and Drives G3BP1 Granule Disassembly for Axon Regeneration

Investigators showed that G3BP1 phosphorylation by casein kinase 2α (CK2α) triggered G3BP1 granule disassembly in injured axons. CK2α activity was temporally and spatially regulated by local translation of Csnk2a1 mRNA in axons after injury, but this required local translation of mTor mRNA and buffering of the elevated axonal Ca2+ that occurred after axotomy.

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.

Long Noncoding RNA RP11-757g1.5 Sponges miR-139-5p and Upregulates YAP1 Thereby Promoting the Proliferation and Liver, Spleen Metastasis of Colorectal Cancer

Bioinformatics binding site analysis, Luciferase reporter assay, Ago2 immunoprecipitation assays, RNA pull-down assay, RT-qPCR and Western blotting were utilized to demonstrate that mechanism of RP11-757G1.5 acts as a molecular sponge of miR-139-5p to regulate the expression of YAP1.

Thymidylate Synthase Drives the Phenotypes of Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
