Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been identified as significant regulators in cancer progression. Positive feedback loops between lncRNAs and transcription factors have attracted increasing attention. Akt pathway plays a crucial role in bladder cancer growth and recurrence. In the present study, we demonstrate a novel regulatory pattern involving FOXD2-AS1, Akt, and E2F1. FOXD2-AS1 is highly expressed in bladder cancer and is associated with tumor stage, recurrence, and poor prognosis. Further experiments showed that FOXD2-AS1 promotes bladder cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion in vitro and in vivo...

Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), switching from a differentiated to a proliferative phenotype, contribute to various vascular diseases. However, the role of long noncoding RNA metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 MALAT1 in the phenotype switching of VSMCs remains unclear. Here, we report that the knockdown of MALAT1 promotes the transformation of smooth muscle cells from a proliferative phenotype to a differentiated phenotype. MALAT1 knockdown inhibited cellular proliferation and migration, leading to significant cell cycle arrest in the G2 phase...

The direct roles of miR-139-3p on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell growth and metastasis remain poorly understood. We attempt to demonstrate the regulatory role of miR139-3p in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) progression and its mechanisms behind. Here, we show that miR-139-3p expression was significantly reduced in the HCC tissues compared to para-tumor tissues. Exogenous overexpression of miR-139-3p inhibited the migration and invasion of HCC cells, whereas down-regulation of miR-139-3p was able to induced HCC HepG2 and SNU-449 cell lines migration and invasion...

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating type of central nervous system (CNS) trauma with limited therapeutic treatments. The polarization of microglia into the M1 or M2 state has been documented to play important roles in the pathogenesis of SCI, although the complete repertoire of underlying factors has not been identified. Interestingly, the time point at which hematomyelia (intramedullary spinal cord hemorrhage) is alleviated coincides with a decrease in the number of M2 microglia. Here the function of Hemopexin (Hpx), a hematogenous glycoprotein, was examined in the crush model of SCI...

We analyze the Sun's shadow observed with the Tibet-III air shower array and find that the shadow's center deviates northward (southward) from the optical solar disk center in the "away" ("toward") interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) sector. By comparing with numerical simulations based on the solar magnetic field model, we find that the average IMF strength in the away (toward) sector is 1.54±0.21_{stat}±0.20_{syst} (1.62±0.15_{stat}±0.22_{syst}) times larger than the model prediction. These demonstrate that the observed Sun's shadow is a useful tool for the quantitative evaluation of the average solar magnetic field...

Structurally defined graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) have attracted great interest due to their unique optical and electronic properties. However, the poor liquid-phase dispersibility of the GNRs impedes their investigation in a wide range of research areas, such as supramolecular self-assembly. In this study, structurally defined GNRs were synthesized by a bottom-up strategy, which were grafted with hydrophilic poly(ethylene oxide) chains of different lengths (named as GNR-PEO). The PEO grafting rendered GNR-PEO excellent dispersibility in water with high GNR concentrations of up to 0...

RIOK1 has recently been shown to play important roles in cancers, but its posttranslational regulation is largely unknown. Here we report that RIOK1 is methylated at K411 by SETD7 methyltransferase and that lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) reverses its methylation. The mutated RIOK1 (K411R) that cannot be methylated exhibits a longer half-life than does the methylated RIOK1. FBXO6 specifically interacts with K411-methylated RIOK1 through its FBA domain to induce RIOK1 ubiquitination. Casein kinase 2 (CK2) phosphorylates RIOK1 at T410, which stabilizes RIOK1 by antagonizing K411 methylation and impeding the recruitment of FBXO6 to RIOK1...

Metformin is a broadlyprescribed drug for type 2 diabetes that exerts antitumor activity, yet the mechanisms underlying this activity remain unclear. We show here that metformin treatment blocks the suppressive function of myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) in patients with ovarian cancer (OC) by downregulating the expression and ectoenzymatic activity of CD39 and CD73 on monocytic and polymononuclear MDSC subsets. Metformin triggered activation of AMP-activated protein kinase α (AMPKα) and subsequently suppressed hypoxia-inducible factor-α (HIF-1α), which was critical for induction of CD39/CD73 expression in MDSC...

Suppressor of fused is essential for the maximal activation of Sonic Hedgehog signaling in development and tumorigenesis. However, the role of Sufu in cervical carcinoma remains unknown. Here, we report new findings of Sufu in regulating the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition through the FoxM1 transcriptional modulation by 14-3-3ζ protein in cervical carcinoma. Sufu is overexpressed in cervical squamous cell carcinoma and its level in clinical tumor tissues is positively correlated with 14-3-3ζ. Functionanlly, siSufu remarkably prevents the cancer cell migration and invasion...
