Combining technological developments such as nanomaterials, DNA nanotechnology, and functional enzymes has great potential to facilitate next generation high performance molecular diagnostic systems. In this work, we describe a microRNA (miRNA) detection assay that combines target recycling and isothermal amplification in an elegantly designed enzyme-mediated cascade reaction. Target recycling is driven by the action of duplex-specific nuclease (DSN), resulting in highly amplified translation of input miRNA to short output DNA fragments...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a vital role in regulating gene expression and are associated with a variety of cancers, including breast cancer. Their distorted and unique expression is a potential marker in clinical diagnoses and prognoses. Thus, accurate determination of miRNA expression levels is a prerequisite for their applications. However, the assays currently available for miRNA detection typically require pre-enrichment, amplification and labeling steps, and most of the assays are only semi-quantitative. Therefore, we developed a quasi-direct liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS)-based targeted proteomics approach to quantify target miRNA by innovatively converting the miRNA signal into the mass response of a reporter peptide via a covalently immobilized DNA-peptide probe...

The aim of this study was to systematically review articles that investigated the prognostic significance of different microRNAs in bladder cancer (BC). We systematically searched PubMed, Web of Science, and Embase to identify relevant studies until March 2016. After screening, 26 studies that involved 2753 patients were included. Results suggested that many miRs expression aberration may predict prognosis in patients with BC. There are six miRs (miR-21, miR-143, miR-155, miR-200, miR-214, and miR-222) were reported by at least two studies, and we performed meta-analysis in the corresponding studies...

Renal cell carcinoma, the most common neoplasm of adult kidney, accounts for about 3% of adult malignancies and is usually highly resistant to conventional therapy. MicroRNAs are a class of small non-coding RNAs, which have been previously shown to promote malignant initiation and progression. In this study, we focused our attention on miR-21, a well described oncomiR commonly upregulated in cancer. Using a cohort of 99 primary renal cell carcinoma samples, we showed that miR-21 expression in cancer tissues was higher than in adjacent non-tumor tissues whereas no significant difference was observed with stages, grades, and metastatic outcome...

The aim of the present study was to identify candidate microRNAs (miRNAs) involved in the progression of renal fibrosis. Dataset GSE42716 of miRNAs extracted from kidneys from mice with unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO), and mice without UUO was downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus database. The Limma package was used to identify differential expression between mice with and without UUO. Renal disease‑related miRNAs were predicted based on the miRWalk database. Thereafter, candidate miRNAs were screened by taking the intersection of differentially expressed miRNAs and predicted miRNAs, followed by screening of target genes using miRWalk and transcription factors using the TransmiR database...

MicroRNAs are non-coding RNA that plays a crucial role in post-transcriptional regulation and immune system regulation. On other hand, sea lice are prevalent parasites that affect salmon farming, generating different degrees of immune suppression depending on the salmon and sea louse species. Caligus rogercresseyi for example, which affects the salmon industry in Chile, decreases Th1 response, macrophage activation, TLR-mediated response and iron regulation in infected fish. In this study, we explore Atlantic salmon miRNome during infestation by C...

Fetal alcohol exposure (FAE) is known to increase prolactin (PRL) secretion from the pituitary lactotropes. In this study we determined whether microRNAs (miRs) are involved in FAE induced alteration in PRL release. We employed a rat animal model of FAE involving feeding pregnant Fisher 344 rats with a liquid diet containing 6.7% alcohol between gestational day 7 to 21 (AF). Both cyclic and estradiol implanted FAE females showed increased levels of plasma PRL and pituitary PRL mRNA but reduced levels of pituitary dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) and its short spliced form (D2S)...

Several mechanisms are postulated to be responsible for nephrotoxic and nephrocarcinogenic activities of mycotoxin and food contaminant, ochratoxin A (OTA). Although Nrf2 transcription factor was suggested to be involved in OTA-mediated renal injury, comprehensive study evaluating the effect of OTA toxicity in Nrf2 knock-out mice with special regard to sex-dependency has not been performed yet. Our results clearly show exacerbated OTA toxicity in porcine tubular epithelial cells after shRNA-mediated Nrf2 inhibition as well as in proximal tubular cells isolated from Nrf2(-/-)male mice in comparison to cells derived from their wild-type counterparts...

It is demonstrated that miRNAs exhibit significant regulatory roles in a series of biological processes and associated with diverse human diseases. Herein, we report a convenient fluorescent biosensor for the quantitative determination of miR-21, a key miRNA related to the cardio-cerebrovascular diseases. Our proposal involves not only the rational design of single stranded DNA as the probe, successively including a C-rich sequence as the synthetic template of DNA/Ag nanoclusters (DNA/AgNCs), a complementary (Com) sequence to hybridize with the miR-21 and a G-rich sequence to form complex of G-quadruplex/hemin, but also the distance-dependent property of photoinduced electron transfer (PET) between the preformed DNA/AgNCs (electron donor) and G-quadruplex/hemin complex (electron acceptor)...

BACKGROUND: Acute rejection (AR) of kidney transplants is associated with the loss of endothelial integrity, microvascular rarefaction and, ultimately, graft dysfunction. Circulating angiogenic microRNAs (miRNAs) may serve as markers for microvascular injury. Here, we investigated the short- and long-term effects of AR after kidney transplantation on systemic vascular injury and the associated circulating miRNA profile. METHODS: Systemic vascular injury was determined by measuring capillary tortuosity and density within the oral mucosa as well as by assessing circulating levels of angiopoietin-2/angiopoietin-1 ratio, vascular endothelial growth factor and soluble thrombomodulin...

The most dramatic feature of life on Earth is our adaptation to the cycle of day and night. Throughout evolutionary time, almost all living organisms developed a molecular clock linked to the light-dark cycles of the sun. In present time, we know that this molecular clock is crucial to maintain metabolic and physiological homeostasis. Indeed, a dysregulated molecular clockwork is a major contributing factor to many metabolic diseases. In fact, the time of onset of acute myocardial infarction exhibits a circadian periodicity and recent studies found that the light regulated circadian rhythm protein Period 2 (PER2) elicits endogenous cardioprotection from ischemia...

MicroRNAs are short non-coding RNAs involved in critical biological processes. In the past decade, the deregulation of miRNAs has been well-documented in a wide range of human diseases, including cancer. Overexpression and downregulation of miRNAs affect cellular pathways that contribute to carcinogenesis and tumor progression. This evidence makes miRNAs a suitable candidate for therapeutic applications and leads to developing strategies to manipulate their expression. Consistently, in vitro and in vivo studies show that Let-7, miR-10b, miR-21, miR-34, and miR-221 are promising targets to develop a miRNAs-based therapy for human malignancies...

Metformin is a commonly prescribed type II diabetes medication that exhibits promising anticancer effects. Recently, these effects were found to be associated, at least in part, with a modulation of microRNA expression. However, the mechanisms by which single modulated microRNAs mediate the anticancer effects of metformin are not entirely clear and knowledge of such a process could be vital to maximize the potential therapeutic benefits of this safe and well-tolerated therapy. Our analysis here revealed that the expression of miR-21-5p was downregulated in multiple breast cancer cell lines treated with pharmacologically relevant doses of metformin...

Brucella spp. infection results in compromised Type1 (Th1) cellular immune response. Several reports have described an immunomodulatory function for Brucella major outer membrane protein Omp25. However, the mechanism by which Omp25 modulates macrophage dysfunction has not been defined. Herein, we reported that Omp25-deficient mutant of Brucella suis exhibited an enhanced ability to induce interleukin (IL)-12 whereas ectopic expression of Omp25 protein inhibited TLR agonists-induced IL-12 p70 production through suppression of both IL-12 p40 and p35 subunit expression in THP-1 cells...
