: Zinc finger protein 139(ZNF139), a member of zinc finger protein family, is a transcription factor. Our previous research showed ZNF139 was overexpressed in gastric cancer cells. The purpose of present study is to explore impact and mechanism of ZNF139 on metastasis by regulating invasive ability of gastric cancer cells. Quantitative RT-PCR(QRT-PCR) and Western blot were applied for detection of ZNF139 expression in gastric cancer tissues, adjacent cancer tissues, metastatic lymph nodes, gastric cancer cell lines SGC7901 and BGC823 and gastric epithelial cell line GES-1; siRNA specific to ZNF139 was synthesized and then transfected into gastric cancer cell line BGC823; wound healing assay and Transwell assay were used to observe impact of ZNF139-siRNA after being transfected into BGC823 on its invasion and migration; changes in expression of invasion and migration-related genes MMP-2, MMP-9, ICAM-1 and TIMP1 were detected before and after transfection. Gelatin zymogrphy assay were applied to determine the MMP activities. Statistical analysis was based on the SPSS11.5 software.Expression of ZNF139 in gastric adenocarcinoma tissues and cells was significantly higher than the expression in the adjacent cancer tissues, but lower than the expression in the metastatic lymph nodes; ZNF139 expression was present in gastric cancer cell lines, and the expression level was higher than that in normal gastric epithelial cells lines. ZNF139-siRNA significantly inhibited the invasion and migration activity of gastric cancer cell line BGC823. 48h after ZNF139-siRNA was transfected into gastric cancer cell line BGC823, expression and activity of invasion-related genes MMP-2, MMP-9, ICAM-1 mRNA and protein were significantly inhibited, while expressions of TIMP-1 mRNA and protein were significantly increased. At the same time, the gelatinase activities of MMP2 and MMP9 were decreased by ZNF139 interference.ZNF139 was overexpressed in gastric cancer cells, and the expression was further enhanced in the metastasis process. Knocking down ZNF139 expression in gastric cancer cells could effectively reduce gastric cancer cell invasion and migration ability, and this process might play a role by regulating MMP-TIMP balance.

Melanoma is a highly malignant skin tumor which is prone to recurrence and metastasis. Hydroxyapatite nanoparticles (nHAPs) were reported to possess a suppressive effect on proliferation of various tumor cells in vitro. This study aimed to assess in vitro and in vivo anti-tumor ability and biosafety of the nHAPs used in the treatment of melanoma. Three types of nHAPs with different morphology and crystallinity were synthesized. In vitro cell viability and proliferation studies demonstrated that ...

Abstract Background As one of the most common genitourinary malignancies worldwide, bladder cancer affects about 3.4 million people globally, with 430,000 new cases a year since 2015. Despite the advances in bladder cancer diagnosis and therapy, there has been little progress in the patients’ overall survival in nearly 30 years. Therefore, investigating novel molecular therapeutic targets is required to gain insight into the tumorigenesis of bladder cancer, which ultimately may be used to develo...

Existing reports identify the involved roles of ZNF139 and its one circular RNA (circRNA), circZNF139, in the progression of various tumors. However, their relevance and function role in bladder cancer (BC) remain largely unexplored. Herein, we aimed to reconnoiter the role and potential mechanism of ZNF139 and circZNF139 in the progression of BC. Firstly, bioinformatics analyses indicated ZNF139 was upregulated in BC tissues and correlated with disease-free survival of BC patients. The subcellu...

: To evaluate the prognostic and molecular mechanisms of sex and racial differences in gastric cancer, data from two large centers were used to retrospectively analyze the survival of gastric cancer patients with regard to sex and racial differences. In examining the molecular mechanism of sex in gastric cancer patients of different races, data from The Cancer Genome Atlas database were used to analyze differentially expressed genes (DEGs), and Gene Ontology (GO) enrichment and DNA methylation a...

: Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most common malignant tumors in the world. It is the fourth most common cancer and has the second highest mortality rate globally. Metastasis is an important feature of gastric cancer and is the most common cause of death. Exploring the mechanism underlying the metastasis of gastric cancer and searching for new drug targets has become the focus of several studies. Traditional Chinese medicine may show promise for treatment of gastric cancer. In this review, we...

It has been reported that the expression of zinc finger protein 139 (ZNF139) and microRNA-185 (miR-185) were associated with proliferation, drug resistance of gastric cancer (GC) cells. However, the detailed mechanisms have not been fully investigated. The expression of ZNF139 in both GC tissues and cell lines was tested, then SGC7901/ADR or SGC7901 cells were transfected with ZNF139-siRNA, miR-185 analog, or pcDNA-ZNF139. Cell activity was determined by MTT assay. Real-time PCR and Western blot...

Abstract Objectives Accumulating evidence has been reported that circular RNAs (circRNAs) are a class of relatively stable, non-coding RNAs, which are involved in the progression of many types of diseases. However, the mechanism of hsa_circ_0052112 in breast cancer cells is not entirely clear. Hsa_circ_0052112, generated from the ZNF83 gene, is selected by analyzing circRNA expression profiles of breast cancer cell by using microarray assay. In this study, we will show the role of hsa_circ_00521...

: Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the deadliest types of cancer in the world. Lymph node (LN) metastasis is a complex and malignant behavior of GC, involving a sequence of biological processes, including decreased adherence to adjacent cells, extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation and lymphatic channel permeation. LN metastasis is directly associated with the treatment response, local recurrence and long-term survival of patients with GC. Therefore, the molecular mechanisms of LN metastasis in GC ...

PRDM14 is overexpressed in various cancers and can regulate cancer phenotype under certain conditions. Inhibiting PRDM14 expression in breast and pancreatic cancers has been reported to reduce cancer stem-like phenotypes, which are associated with aggressive tumor properties. Therefore, PRDM14 is considered a promising target for cancer therapy. To develop a pharmaceutical treatment, the mechanism and interacting partners of PRDM14 need to be clarified. Here, we identified the proteins interacti...
