Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is associated with high metastatic potential and high mortality. Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that speckle-type POZ protein (SPOP) is a key adaptor molecule of ubiquitination. However, the molecular mechanism of SPOP-mediated ubiquitination in HCC metastasis remains obscure. In the present study, our results indicated that SPOP expression was significantly downregulated in HCC and was associated with tumor size, differentiation and metastasis. Cox regression model showed that low SPOP expression was a risk factor related to the prognosis of HCC patients...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cancer stem-like cells (CSC) are regarded as the source of tumour origins, metastasis and drug resistance, and limits current treatment regimens. Previously, we reported the first study of the anti-angiogenic and anti-tumour activities of 4-vinylphenol. To further examine the therapeutic role of 4-vinylphenol, the inhibitory effects of 4-vinylphenol on cancer stemness, drug resistance and metastasis in breast cancer were investigated in the present study. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: We enriched parental MDA-MB-231 cells with CSCs in serum-free medium to give spheroids...

Enhancer of zeste homolog-2 (EZH2) is a methyltransferase that induces histone H3 lysine 27 trimethylation (H3K27me3) and functions as an oncogenic factor in many cancer types. Its role in renal epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) remains unknown. In this study, we found that EZH2 and H3K27me3 were highly expressed in mouse kidney with unilateral ureteral obstruction and cultured mouse kidney proximal tubular (TKPT) cells undergoing EMT. Inhibition of EZH2 with 3-deazaneplanocin A (3-DZNeP) attenuated renal fibrosis, which was associated with preserving E-cadherin expression and inhibiting Vimentin up-regulation in the obstructed kidney...

Activation of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition process (EMT) by which alveolar cells in human lung tissue undergo differentiation giving rise to a mesenchymal phenotype (fibroblast/miofibroblasts) has been well recognized as a key element in the origin of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Here we analyzed expression of AQP1 in lung biopsies of patients diagnosed with IPF, and compared it to biopsies derived from patients with diverse lung pneumonies, such as hypersensitivity pneumonitis, sarcoidosis or normal lungs...

Periostin is a secreted protein that is highly expressed in glioblastoma cells as compared to normal brain tissue, and is therefore considered as a potential biomarker in therapeutic modalities. Its contribution in the cancer cells invasive phenotype is, however, poorly understood. This work investigates the role of periostin in U-87 MG glioblastoma cell invasion, cell migration and in Transforming Growth Factor β (TGF-β)-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Periostin gene silencing, using small interfering RNA, decreased TGF-β-induced mesenchymal marker expression of fibronectin and vimentin, partly through reduced Smad2, Akt and Fak phosphorylation as well as U-87 MG cell invasion and migration...

Dysregulation of long non-coding RNAs is a newly identified mechanism for tumour progression. Previous studies have suggested that the nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT) gene plays a very important role in cancer growth and metastasis. However, lncNRON is a newly identified repressor of NFAT, and its function is largely unknown, especially in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Therefore, the expression levels of lncNRON in 215 pairs of HCC tissue were evaluated by qRT-PCR, and its relationship to clinicopathological parameters, recurrence, and survival was analysed...

Growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF15) is a divergent member of the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) superfamily that has been associated with colorectal cancers (CRC). However, the role of GDF15 in the progression of CRC remains unknown. We demonstrated that GDF15 expression was higher in fresh CRC tissues than in adjacent normal tissues. Moreover, we found that GDF15 overexpression significantly facilitated cell viability, cell invasion and migration (p < .01 or p < .05). The protein expression of N-cadherin, vimentin and Twist1 were up-regulated by GDF15 overexpression, while E-cadherin was down-regulated...

We extracted the primary pulmonary fibroblasts of the normal and bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis mice and investigated the functioning mechanism of citrus alkaline extract (CAE) in the induction of pulmonary fibroblast apoptosis. The expression intensity of vimentin of the pulmonary fibroblasts in the model mice was higher than that in the normal mice. Meanwhile, the positive expression rate and expression intensity of alpha smooth muscle actin ( α -SMA) of the pulmonary fibroblasts in the model mice were higher than those in the normal mice...

Homozygous mutations of human HTRA1 cause cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CARASIL). HtrA1-/- mice were examined for arterial abnormalities. Although their cerebral arteries were normal, the thoracic aorta was affected in HtrA1-/- mice. The number of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) in the aorta was increased in HtrA1-/- mice of 40 weeks or younger, but decreased thereafter. The cross-sectional area of the aorta was increased in HtrA1-/- mice of 40 weeks or older...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: MicroRNAs regulate a wide range of biological processes of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although miR-598 has been reported to act as a suppressor in osteosarcoma and colorectal cancer, the physiological function of miR-598 in NSCLC remains unknown. In this study, the role of miR-598 in NSCLC was investigated. METHODS: Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was conducted to estimate the expression of miR-598 and Derlin-1 (DERL1) in both NSCLC tissues and cell lines...

The effects of histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors on epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) differ in various cancers. E‑cadherin is a cell‑to‑cell adhesion protein, whereas accumulation of vimentin is related to the development of the spindle shape of the mesenchymal cell phenotype. We investigated the EMT phenotypes of human cholangiocellular carcinoma HuCC‑T1, JCK and SNU‑1079 cell lines. To this end, we measured the expression of E‑cadherin or zonula occludens (ZO)‑1 and vimentin, epithelial and mesenchymal cell markers, respectively, using real‑time reverse transcription‑polymerase chain reaction, western blotting, and immunofluorescence microscopy following treatment with trichostatin A (TSA, 200 nM) or valproic acid (VPA, 0...

Increasing evidence has demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) play a variety of roles in tumor development, progression and chemosensitivity in a wide range of tumors. In this study, we found that miR‑125a‑5p exhibited a low expression in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) tissues and cells, and that its low expression was associated with higher tumor staging and shorter a survival time of patients with ESCC. Moreover, miR‑125a‑5p overexpression contributed to the suppression of cell proliferation, cell cycle arrest, cell apoptosis and a decrease in cell migratory and invasive abilities, whereas the downregulation of miR‑125a‑5p promoted cell proliferation, accelerated cell cycle progression, suppressed apoptosis and enhanced the migratory and invasive abilities of ESCC EC1 and TE1 cells, which may be tightly associated with the epithelial‑mesenchymal transition (EMT) process in ESCC...

Over-expression of aspartyl (asparagynal)-β-hydroxylase (ASPH) contributes to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) invasiveness, but the role of ASPH hydroxylase activity in this process remains to be defined. As such, the current study investigated the role of ASPH hydroxylase activity in downstream signalling of HCC tumorgenesis and, specifically, metastasis development. Over-expression of wild-type ASPH, but not a hydroxylase mutant, promoted HCC cell migration in vitro, as well as intrahepatic and distant metastases in vivo...
