Exposure to benzene or its metabolite hydroquinone (HQ) is a risk factor for a series of myeloid malignancies, and long noncoding RNAs play an important role in the process of pathogenesis. Urothelial cancer-associated 1 (UCA1) functions as an oncogene in the development of acute myeloid leukemia. However, the association between DNMT1 and UCA1 with benzene or HQ exposure has not been explored. We characterized UCA1 expression in cells briefly exposed to HQ (HQ-ST cells) and HQ-induced malignant...
Globally, doxorubicin (DOX)-induced cardio dysfunction is a serious cause of morbidity and mortality in cancerous patients. An adverse event of cardiotoxicity is the main deem to restrict in the clinical application by oncologists. Corilagin (CN) is well known for its antioxidative, anti-fibrosis, and anticancer effects. Herein, we aimed to evaluate the action of CN on DOX-induced experimental animals and H9c2 cells. The myocardium-specific marker, CK-MB, and the influx of mitochondrial calcium ...

LINC01410 is a tumor promoter that is upregulated in some cancer types, such as osteosarcoma (OS). Nonetheless, its role in OS and the underlying molecular mechanism have not been fully understood. Hence, we sought to elucidate it. We performed reverse-transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction for examining LINC01410, miR-497-5p and HMGA2 levels. Additionally, we carried out the cell counting kit-8 and Transwell assays for detecting cell proliferation and invasion/migration. Bioinform...

In breast cancer, there has been evidence of atypical activation of signal transduction and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3). Thymoquinone (TQ) exerts its anti-neoplastic effect through diverse mechanisms, including STAT3 inhibition. The tumor suppressor, microRNA-125a-5p was reported to be downregulated in various breast cancer cells. Therefore, we investigated the influence of TQ and/or doxorubicin on microRNA-125a-5p and its correlation with STAT3 activation as well as tumor growth in mi...
Sevoflurane (Sev), a widely used volatile anesthetic, can cause long-term neurotoxicity and learning and memory impairment. Dexmedetomidine (Dex) has been reported to exhibit neuroprotective effects in numerous neurological disorders. Our work aimed to evaluate the molecular mechanisms of Dex in Sev-induced neurotoxicity. In this study, it was found that Dex mitigated Sev-induced neurotoxicity. Moreover, Sev treatment upregulated the miR-330-3p expression in hippocampus tissues, while this effec...

Amiodarone (AMD), an antiarrhythmic drug, is used cautiously due to its lung toxicity that is characterized by alveolar inflammation followed by fatal fibrosis. AMD induces lung inflammation via increasing the alveolar macrophages and disturbing the balance of T-helper-1 (Th1) and Th2 cells cytokines. In this study, the role of the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs)/activator protein-1 (AP-1) pathway in AMD-induced lung inflammation was evaluated. Also, the anti-inflammatory and antifibro...

The heterogeneity and poor prognosis of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) have limited the treatment options and made clinical management challenging. This has nurtured a major effort to discover druggable molecular targets. Currently, chemotherapy is the primary treatment strategy for this disease. Doxorubicin is the most frequently used chemotherapeutic drug for TNBC and due to the fact that chemotherapeutic drugs have a lot of side effects, we evaluated the synergistic effect of the phytoc...

Recent evidence has prompted the notion of gut-microbial signatures as an indirect marker of aging and aging-associated decline in humans. However, the underlying host-symbiont molecular interactions contributing to these signatures remain poorly understood. In this study, we address this gap using cheminformatic analyses to elucidate potential gut microbial metabolites that may perturb the longevity-associated NAD+ metabolic network. In silico ADMET, KEGG interaction analysis, molecular docking...

BACKGROUND: Genetic variations of aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) pathway genes could influence the imbalanced immune response to xenobiotics. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the polymorphism of AHR pathway genes in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients in association with smoking. METHODS: Genomic DNA from patients (N = 107) and controls (N = 105) of a population from northeast of Iran was used for genotyping of CYP1A1 T>C (rs4646903) and AHRR C>G (rs2292596) variants. The SLEDAI score...
Human cervical cancer is the fourth most common carcinoma in women in the world. The JAK/STAT3 signaling pathways crucially regulate cell growth and apoptosis. It is a significant target signaling pathway for the development of novel antitumor medicine. This study intended to explore whether lycorine could prevent HT-3 proliferation and induce apoptosis by targeting the JAK/STAT3 signaling cascade. The HT-3 cells were treated with various lycorine dosages and we analyzed cell growth, lipid perox...
