Abstract Glioma is the most frequent primary malignant tumor of the human brain. Recently, great progress has been made in the combined therapy of glioma. However, the clinical effects of these treatments and prognosis for patients with glioma remains poor. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been demonstrated to play important roles in the initiation and progression of various types of human cancers, also including glioma. The present study investigated the expression patterns of microRNA‑140 (miR-140) in glioma, and the roles of miR-140 in glioma cell proliferation, migration and invasion. The results showed that miR-140 was significantly downreuglated in glioma tissues and cell lines, and low expression levels of miR-140 were correlated with World Health Organization (WHO) grade and Karnofsky performance score (KPS) of glioma patients. Restoration of miR-140 obviously suppressed glioma cell proliferation, migration and invasion. In addition, a disintegrin and metalloproteinase 9 (ADAM9) was identified as a novel direct target gene of miR-140 in glioma. Furthermore, knockdown of ADAM9 simulated the tumor suppressor functions of miR-140, while overexpression of ADAM9 abrogated these suppressive effects induced by miR-140 in glioma cells. In conclusion, the present study demonstrated the expression and clinical roles of miR-140 in glioma and suggested that miR-140 inhibited proliferation, migration and invasion of glioma cells, partially at least via suppressing ADAM9 expression. Therefore, miR-140 may be a novel candidate target for the development of therapeutic strategies for patients with glioma.

Glioblastoma (GBM) is among the most aggressive primary brain tumors, with a median survival rate of 12–15 months. MicroRNAs have been implicated in GBM development as oncogenes or tumor suppressors. In this study, we demonstrated that miR-519a expression was frequently downregulated in GBM specimens and cell lines, and that low-levels miR-519a expression significantly correlated with poor outcomes associated with GBM. Analysis of The Cancer Genome Atlas also demonstrated that low miR-519a expre...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) as a class of small noncoding RNA molecules regulate the expression of targeted gene. The dysregulation of microRNAs is reported to be involved in carcinogenesis and tumor progression. Here, we identified miR-140-3p as a downregulated microRNA in most cancer tissues including lung cancer tissues, compared with their normal counterparts. MiR-140-3p was observed to perform its tumor suppressor function via its inhibition on cell growth, migration and invasion but its induction o...

Abstract MicroRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) regulate several biological functions, including cell fate determination and differentiation. Although miR-145 has already been described to regulate glioma development, its precise role in neurogenesis has never been addressed. miR-145 represses sex-determining region Y-box 2 (Sox2), a core transcription factor of embryonic stem cells (ESCs), to inhibit pluripotency and self-renewal in human ESCs. In addition, the Sox2-Lin28/let-7 signaling pathway regulates ...

Dysregulation of miRNAs is a common feature in human cancers, and miR-140-5p has been found to be down-regulated in cancer. However its role in ovarian cancer remains unclear. miR-140-5p was underexpressed in HCC tissues and cell lines compared with their normal controls. Additionally, PDGFRA was predicted the target gene of miR-140-5p. PDGFRA was inversely correlated with the expression of miR-140-5p in ovarian cancer cells. Importantly, we demonstrate that the over expression of miR-140-5p sig...

Up until recently, it was believed that pharmaceutical drugs and their metabolites enter into the cell to gain access to their targets via simple diffusion across the hydrophobic lipid cellular membrane, at a rate which is based on their lipophilicity. An increasing amount of evidence indicates that the phospholipid bilayer-mediated drug diffusion is in fact negligible, and that drugs pass through cell membranes via proteinaceous membrane transporters or carriers which are normally used for the ...

Abstract Temozolomide (TMZ) is a first-line chemotherapeutic agent used against glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), but this disease exhibits recurrence and high lethality. Therefore, it is critical to explore biomarkers which involve in drug resistance and can be represented as different therapeutic effects after a diagnosis. We attempted to investigate the underlying variably expressed genes that contribute to the formation of resistance to TMZ. We analyzed gene and microRNA (miR) data from GBM pat...

Glioma is the most aggressive brain tumor of the central nervous system. The ability of glioma cells to migrate, rapidly diffuse and invade normal adjacent tissue, their sustained proliferation, and heterogeneity contribute to an overall survival of approximately 15 months for most patients with high grade glioma. Numerous studies indicate that non-coding RNA species have critical functions across biological processes that regulate glioma initiation and progression. Recently, new data emerged, w...
