Macrophages (Mϕ) are highly plastic and change their functional phenotypes depending on microenvironmental signals. Recent studies have shown that microRNAs are involved in the polarization of Mϕ. In this study, we demonstrated that the phenotype of M2bMϕ [CCL1(+) IL-10(+) LIGHT(+)] switches to other phenotypes with interchangeability attained through the increased expression of growth arrest-specific 5 RNA (GAS5 RNA), a long non-coding RNA. GAS5 RNA has been described as a silencer of the CCL1 gene. Various phenotypes of Mϕ were prepared from bone marrow-derived Mϕ (BMDMϕ) after stimulation with IFNγ [M(IFNγ)]/M1Mϕ, IL-4 [M(IL-4)]/M2aMϕ, LPS and immobilized IgG [M(LPS + IC)]/M2bMϕ, and IL-10 [M(IL-10)/M2cMϕ]...

Cardiac hypertrophy (CH) is related to a variety of physiological as well as pathological stimuli and eventually increases the risk of heart failure. lncRNA GAS5 has been identified as a competing endogenous RNA in multiple human biological processes. Whether lncRNA GAS5 is involved in the progress of CH and how it works still remain unknown. Here, we found that the expression of lncRNA-GAS5 was increased in the AngII-induced Cardiac hypertrophy model. lncRNA-GAS5 inhibited the total protein per well, as well as the expression of hypertrophic markers, ANF and β-MHC...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an aggressive disease that lacks effective biomarkers for early detection. We hypothesized that circulating long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) may act as diagnostic markers of incidentally-detected cystic PDAC precursors known as intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) and predictors of their pathology/histological classification. Using NanoString nCounter® technology, we measured the abundance of 28 candidate lncRNAs in pre-operative plasma from a cohort of pathologically-confirmed IPMN cases of various grades of severity and non-diseased controls...

The regulation of inflammation is pivotal for preventing the development or reoccurrence of multiple sclerosis (MS). A biased ratio of high-M1 versus low-M2 polarized microglia is a major pathological feature of MS Here, using microarray screening, we identify the long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) GAS5 as an epigenetic regulator of microglial polarization. Gain- and loss-of-function studies reveal that GAS5 suppresses microglial M2 polarization. Interference with GAS5 in transplanted microglia attenuates the progression of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and promotes remyelination in a lysolecithin-induced demyelination model...

Prostate cancer (PCa) becomes a leading cause of death in males nowadays. Recent reports showed that androgen-responsive long non-coding RNAs played important roles in tumorigenesis and progression of PCa. In this study, we focused on a special transcript of GAS5 (ENST00000456293.5, GAS5-007), which was reported as a tumor suppressor. Here, we demonstrated GAS5-007 was reduced by androgen treatment and inhibited by AR. Next, we explored the expression level of GAS, finding the expression of it in PCa tissue was higher than normal tissue in both public databases and human tissue samples...

Glucocorticoids (GCs) are widely employed in inflammatory, autoimmune and neoplastic diseases, and, despite the introduction of novel therapies, remain the first-line treatment for inducing remission in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Given the high incidence of suboptimal response, associated with a significant number of side effects, that are particularly severe in paediatric patients, the identification of subjects that are most likely to respond poorly to GCs is extremely important. Recent evidence suggests that the long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) GAS5 could be a potential marker of GC resistance...

The growth arrest-specific 5 transcript (GAS5) is a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) involved in the control of cell cycle progression and apoptosis in a wide variety of cells. To determine the clinical value of GAS5 expression in cancer patients, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis exploring its association with the diagnosis, prognosis, and clinicopathological characteristics of cancer. Ten articles on prognosis, 15 on clinicopathology, and 5 on diagnosis were analyzed. Overall results showed that decreased GAS5 expression associated with unfavorable overall survival (OS) (HR = 2...

Whole transcriptome analyses have revealed a large number of novel long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). Although accumulating evidence demonstrates that lncRNAs play important roles in regulating gene expression, the detailed mechanisms of action of most lncRNAs remain unclear. We previously reported that a novel class of lncRNAs with a short half-life (t1/2 < 4 h) in HeLa cells, termed short-lived non-coding transcripts (SLiTs), are closely associated with physiological and pathological functions. In this study, we focused on 26 SLiTs and nuclear-enriched abundant lncRNA, MALAT1(t1/2 of 7...

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), known as the most common type of lung cancer, has caused great economic losses and brought the patients with NSCLC great suffering. The NSCLC chemo-resistance to cisplatin (DDP) -based chemotherapy remains a huge challenge. The lncRNA growth arrest-specific 5 (GAS5) has been reported to be related with cancers including NSCLC. Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) has been frequently reported to affect chemo-sensitivity of cancers, and usually acts as a tumor suppressor. In this paper, we demonstrated a significant low GAS5expression in NSCLC patients was correlated with poorer clinicopathologic features; GAS5 knockdown by si-GAS5 transfection promoted NSCLC cell viability...

Growth arrest special 5 (GAS5) is a long non-coding RNA reported to function as an inhibitor in various tumors including cervical cancer. However, the molecular mechanism of GAS5 involved in cervical cancer progression remains far from being elucidated. The expression of GAS5, forkhead box protein O1 and phosphatase and tensin homolog was examined by quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction qRT-PCR. cell growth, invasion, and apoptosis were assessed by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay, colony formation assay, transwell invasion assay, and flow cytometry analysis, respectively...

Glioma stem cells (GSCs) make up highly tumorigenic subpopulations within gliomas, and aberrant expression of GSC genes is a major underlying cause of glioma pathogenesis and treatment failure. The present study characterized the expression and function of long non-coding RNA growth arrest specific 5 (GAS5) in GSCs in order to elucidate the molecular mechanisms by which GAS5 contributes to glioma pathogenesis. We demonstrate that GAS5 suppresses GSC malignancy by binding to miR-196a-5p. miR-196a-5p, an onco-miRNA, stimulates GSC proliferation, migration, and invasion, in addition to reducing levels of apoptosis...

Smooth muscle cell (SMC) differentiation is essential for vascular development, and TGF-β signaling plays a critical role in this process. Although long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulate various cellular events, their functions in SMC differentiation remain largely unknown. Here, we demonstrate that the lncRNA growth arrest-specific 5 (GAS5) suppresses TGF-β/Smad3 signaling in smooth muscle cell differentiation of mesenchymal progenitor cells. We found that forced expression of GAS5 blocked, but knockdown of GAS5 increased, the expression of SMC contractile proteins...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) display multiple functions including regulation of neuronal injury. However, their impact in methamphetamine (METH)-induced neurotoxicity has rarely been reported. Here, using microarray analysis, we investigated the expression profiling of lncRNAs and mRNAs in primary cultured prefrontal cortical neurons after METH treatment. We observed a difference in lncRNA and mRNA expression between the experimental and sham control groups. Using bioinformatics, we analyzed the highest enriched gene ontology (GO) terms of biological process, cellular component, and molecular function, and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway and pathway network analysis...

Gene markers of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) have great significance on early diagnosis and treatment of clinical oral cancer. In this study, we used RNA-Seq data from OSCC patients and filtered differentially-expressed long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) to further clarify the molecular mechanism. Firstly, we downloaded datasets of OSCC from National Center for Biotechnology Information(NCBI), which were predicted and analyzed by cufflinks and tophat. Then, differentially expressed lncRNA enrichment was performed with The Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery (DAVID)...

Adipose tissue is a significant source of mesenchymal stem cells for regenerative therapies; however, caution should be taken as their environmental niche can affect their functional properties. We have previously demonstrated the negative impact of obesity on the function of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs). Here we have evaluated other possible properties and targets that are altered by obesity such as the recently described long non-coding molecule Gas5, which is involved in glucocorticoid resistance. Using ASCs isolated from obese (oASCs) and control subjects (cASCs), we have analyzed additional metabolic and inflammatory conditions that could be related with their impaired therapeutic potential and consequently their possible usefulness in the clinic...
