Background MiRNA can be involved in regulating tumor genesis and development by regulating the expression of specific genes and regulating corresponding signaling pathways. In this study, we explored the function and mechanisms of miR-302e in glioma progression. Methods Experimental methods include the following: real-time quantitative PCR, Western Blot Analysis, CCK8 assay and detection of apoptosis. Results MiR-302e was down-regulated in cancer tissues and cell lines, and the expression of miR-302e was negatively correlated with the tumor grade, which indicated poor prognosis in glioma patients. Followed functional analysis showed overexpression of miR-302e inhibited proliferation, migration and invasion but promoted apoptosis of glioma cells, while silencing miR-302e showed the opposite effects. Mechanistic studies have shown that VEGFA was a directed target of miR-302e. Forced expression of VEGFA removed the inhibiting impact of miR-302e on glioma development. In vivo tumorigenesis experiments showed that miR-302e suppressed glioma development by targeting VEGFA. Conclusion Present study emphasized miR-302e suppressed glioma development by targeting VEGFA, which might be a valuable target for glioma treatment.

Regardless of subtype, diffuse gliomas of adulthood are characterized by inexorable progression through treatment. Cancer recurrence in the context of therapy is by no means unique to gliomas. For many tumors residing outside the central nervous system (CNS), tissue-based analyses are routinely employed to document the molecular and cellular features of disease recurrence. Such interventions are inconsistently applied for gliomas, however, and lack rigorous standardization when they are. While m...

BACKGROUND: Malignant gliomas are the most frequent primary brain tumors and remain among the most incurable cancers. Although the role of the gap junction protein, connexin43, has been deeply investigated in malignant gliomas, no compounds have been reported with the ability to recapitulate the tumor suppressor properties of this protein in in vivo glioma models. METHODS: TAT-Cx43266-283, a cell-penetrating peptide which mimics the effect of Cx43 on c-Src inhibition, was studied in orthotopic i...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric low-grade glioma (pLGG) is the most common childhood brain tumor. Many patients with unresectable or recurrent/refractory tumors have significant life-long disability. The majority of pLGG have mutations increasing the activity of the RAS/MAP kinase pathway. Activation of mTOR is also a hallmark of pLGG. We therefore hypothesized that the dual TORC1/2 kinase inhibitor TAK228 would synergize with the MEK inhibitor trametinib in pLGG. METHODS: We tested TAK228 and trametinib ...

Long non-coding RNAs play critical roles in tumour progression. Through analysis of publicly available genomic datasets, we found that MIR22HG, the host gene of microRNAs miR-22-3p and miR-22-5p, is ranked among the most dysregulated long non-coding RNAs in glioblastoma. The main purpose of this work was to determine the impact of MIR22HG on glioblastoma growth and invasion and to elucidate its mechanistic function. The MIR22HG/miR-22 axis was highly expressed in glioblastoma as well as in gliom...

BACKGROUND: It is well recognized that competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) regulatory network is linked to the development and progression of cancer, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Herein, we aimed to explore the functional role of circ-CMPK1/miR-302e/cyclin D1 ceRNA signaling in NSCLC. METHODS: GEO database (GSE102287) was utilized to screen differentially expressed miRNAs in NSCLC. Quantitative reverse transcription PCR (qRT-PCR) and western blotting assays were used to determine g...

Diffuse brain infiltration by glioma cells causes detrimental disease progression, but its multicellular coordination is poorly understood. We show here that glioma cells infiltrate the brain collectively as multicellular networks. Contacts between moving glioma cells are adaptive epithelial-like or filamentous junctions stabilized by N-cadherin, β-catenin and p120-catenin, which undergo kinetic turnover, transmit intercellular calcium transients and mediate directional persistence. Downregulati...

At present, developing therapeutic strategies to improve wound healing in individuals with diabetes remains challenging. Exosomes represent a promising nanomaterial from which microRNAs (miRNAs) can be isolated. These miRNAs have the potential to exert therapeutic effects, and thus, determining the potential therapeutic contributions of specific miRNAs circulating in exosomes is of great importance. In the present study, circulating exosomal miRNAs are identified in diabetic patients and assesse...

Brain metastasis (BM) is one of the principal causes of mortality for lung cancer patients. While the molecular events that govern BM of lung cancer remain frustrating cloudy. The miRNA expression profiles are checked in the paired human BM and primary lung cancer tissues. The effect of miR-143-3p on BM of lung cancer cells and its related mechanisms are investigated. miR-143-3p is upregulated in the paired BM tissues as compared with that in primary cancer tissues. It can increase the invasion ...

A noncoding polymorphism (rs78378222) in TP53, carried by scores of millions of people, was previously associated with moderate risk of brain tumors and other neoplasms. We find a positive association between this variant and soft tissue sarcoma. In sharp contrast, it is protective against breast cancer. We generated a mouse line carrying this variant and found that it accelerates spontaneous tumorigenesis and glioma development, but strikingly, delays mammary tumorigenesis. The variant creates ...
