Despite a capacity for proliferation and an ability to differentiate into multiple cell types, in long-term culture and with ageing, stem cells show a reduction in growth, display a decrease in differentiation potential, and enter senescence without evidence of transformation. The Lin28a gene encodes an RNA-binding protein that plays a role in regulating stem cell activity, including self-renewal and differentiation propensity. However, the effect of the Lin28a gene on cultured human osteoprecursor cells is poorly understood...

Spermatogenesis, which involves mitosis and meiosis of male germ cells, is a highly complicated and coordinately ordered process. Cyclin B1 (CCNB1), an important regulator in cell cycle machinery, is proved essential for mouse embryonic development. However, the role of CCNB1 in mammalian spermatogenesis remains unclear. Here we tested the requirement for CCNB1 using conditional knockout mice lacking CCNB1 in male germ cells. We found that ablation of CCNB1 in gonocytes and spermatogonia led to mouse sterile caused by the male germ cells' depletion...

Negative valine (V) to phenylalanine (F) switch at the Janus kinase (JAK2) 617 codon (V617F) is the dominant driver mutation in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). JAK2V617F was proved to be sufficient for cell transformation; however, independent mutations might influence the following epigenomic modifications. To assess the JAK2V617F-induced downstream epigenomic changes without interferences, we profiled the epigenomic changes in ectopically expressed JAK2V617F in Ba/F3 cells. Antibodies against phosphorylated signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (pSTAT3) and enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) were used for chromatin-immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-seq) to detect the downstream epigenomic targets in the JAK2-STAT3 signaling pathway...

Previous evidences have proved that porcine-induced pluripotent stem cells (piPSCs) could be induced to distinctive metastable pluripotent states. This raises the issue of whether there is a common transcriptomic profile existing among the piPSC lines at distinctive state. In this study, we performed conjoint analysis of small RNA-seq and mRNA-seq for three piPSC lines which represent LIF dependence, FGF2 dependence and LFB2i dependence, respectively. Interestingly, we found there are 16 common microRNAs which potentially target 13 common mRNAs among the three piPSC lines...

Medulloepithelioma is a rare and highly malignant primitive neuroectodermal tumor that usually occurs in childhood. The diagnosis of this entity required only morphological analysis until the World Health Organization classification of central nervous system (CNS) tumors was revised, and now genetic analysis is necessary. We report a case of medulloepithelioma in the posterior cranial fossa that was diagnosed by both morphological and genetic analyses based on this classification. A 10-month-old girl was admitted to our hospital with consciousness disturbance and vomiting...

BACKGROUND: Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and high-grade extrapulmonary neuroendocrine carcinomas (EPNEC) share similar histopathological features and treatment, but outcomes may differ. We evaluated in our study the expression of biomarkers associated with response rate (RR) to chemotherapy and overall survival (OS) for these entities. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a multicentre retrospective analysis of advanced EPNEC and SCLC patients treated with platinum-based chemotherapy...

Metastatic prostate cancer is presently incurable. The oncogenic protein PTOV1, first described in prostate cancer, was reported as overexpressed and significantly correlated with poor survival in numerous tumors. Here, we investigated the role of PTOV1 in prostate cancer survival to docetaxel and self-renewal ability. Transduction of PTOV1 in docetaxel-sensitive Du145 and PC3 cells significantly increased cell survival after docetaxel exposure and induced docetaxel-resistance genes expression (ABCB1, CCNG2 and TUBB2B)...

PROBLEM: In endocervical epithelial cells (End1/E6E7), miRNA let-7f plays an important role in the control of innate immunity. The underlying molecular mechanism for let-7f regulation in these cells remains largely unclear. METHODS OF STUDY: let-7f was knocked down in End1/E6E7 cells using siRNA, and differential gene expression was analyzed by microarray. Differentially expressed genes were validated by qPCR and Western blot. Expression of let-7f was studied by qPCR after inhibition of C/EBPβ with betulinic acid (BA) and pCMVβ plasmid and after overexpression of C/EBPβ with pCMVβ+ plasmid...

The reprogramming of differentiated cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) is usually achieved by exogenous induction of transcription by factors acting in the nucleus. In contrast, during development, signaling pathways initiated at the membrane induce differentiation. The central idea of this study is to identify antibodies that can catalyze cellular de-differentiation and nuclear reprogramming by acting at the cell surface. We screen a lentiviral library encoding ∼100 million secreted and membrane-bound single-chain antibodies and identify antibodies that can replace either Sox2 and Myc (c-Myc) or Oct4 during reprogramming of mouse embryonic fibroblasts into iPSCs...

Embryonal tumors with multilayered rosettes (ETMRs) have recently been described as a new entity of rare pediatric brain tumors with a fatal outcome. We show here that ETMRs are characterized by a parallel activation of Shh and Wnt signaling. Co-activation of these pathways in mouse neural precursors is sufficient to induce ETMR-like tumors in vivo that resemble their human counterparts on the basis of histology and global gene-expression analyses, and that point to apical radial glia cells as the possible tumor cell of origin...

Execution of pluripotency requires progression from the naïve status represented by mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) to a state capacitated for lineage specification. This transition is coordinated at multiple levels. Non-coding RNAs may contribute to this regulatory orchestra. We identified a rodent-specific long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) linc1281, hereafter Ephemeron (Eprn), that modulates the dynamics of exit from naïve pluripotency. Eprn deletion delays the extinction of ESC identity, an effect associated with perduring Nanog expression...

Denatured dermis is a part of the dermis in deep burn wound and has the ability to restore normal morphology and function. In our previous study, we revealed that miR-29a downregulation in denatured dermis may help burn wound healing in the later phase, and further enhance type I collagen synthesis. LIN28A, a highly-conserved RNA binding protein expressed during embryogenesis, plays roles in development, pluripotency, metabolism, as well as tissue repair in adults. In the present study, we investigated the functional roles of LIN28A in human skin fibroblasts (HSFs) and extracellular matrix (ECM), and the interaction between miR-29a and LIN28A...

We previously devised a polycistronic, synthetic self-replicating RNA (srRNA) to generate human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) that simultaneously expresses four reprogramming factors (4F). However, while the best 4F srRNA efficiently generated iPSCs from young fibroblasts, it was inefficient on adult human fibroblasts (>50 years). To increase the iPSC generation efficiency, we included additional reprogramming factors. We found that a single transfection of a five factor (5F) srRNA, containing OCT4, KLF4, SOX2, GLIS1 and c-MYC, robustly generated iPSCs from adult human fibroblasts aged 54 to 77 and from a 24 year old cardiomyopathy patient donor...

Stress Granules (SGs) are dynamic ribonucleoprotein aggregates, which have been observed in cells subjected to environmental stresses, such as oxidative stress and heat shock (HS). Although pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) are highly sensitive to oxidative stress, the role of SGs in regulating PSC self-renewal and differentiation has not been fully elucidated. Here we found that sodium arsenite (SA) and HS, but not hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), induce SG formation in human induced (hi) PSCs. Particularly, we found that these granules contain the well-known SG proteins (G3BP, TIAR, eIF4E, eIF4A, eIF3B, eIF4G, and PABP), were found in juxtaposition to processing bodies (PBs), and were disassembled after the removal of the stress...

Damage in fish activates retina repair that restores sight. The purinergic signalling system serves multiple homeostatic functions and has been implicated in cell cycle control of progenitor cells in the developing retina. We examined whether changes in the expression of purinergic molecules were instrumental in the proliferative phase after injury of adult zebrafish retinas with ouabain. P2RY1 messenger RNA (mRNA) increased early after injury and showed maximal levels at the time of peak progenitor cell proliferation...

Transcription factors (TFs) are key actors of the control of gene expression and consequently of every major process within cells, ranging from cell fate determination, cell cycle control and response to environment. Their ectopic expression has proven high potential in reprogramming cells for regenerative medicine; ontogenesis studies and cell based modelling. Direct delivery of proteins could represent an alternative to current reprogramming methods using gene transfer but still needs technological improvements...

SR proteins function in nuclear pre-mRNA processing, mRNA export, and translation. To investigate their cellular dynamics, we developed a quantitative assay, which detects differences in nucleocytoplasmic shuttling among seven canonical SR protein family members. As expected, SRSF2 and SRSF5 shuttle poorly in HeLa cells but surprisingly display considerable shuttling in pluripotent murine P19 cells. Combining individual-resolution cross-linking and immunoprecipitation (iCLIP) and mass spectrometry, we show that elevated arginine methylation of SRSF5 and lower phosphorylation levels of cobound SRSF2 enhance shuttling of SRSF5 in P19 cells by modulating protein-protein and protein-RNA interactions...

Metastasis is common in lung cancer and is associated with poor clinical outcomes and increased mortality. Curcumin is a natural anti-cancer agent that inhibits the metastasis of various cancers by modulating the expression of micro (mi) RNAs such as miR-98, which acts as a tumor suppressor. This study investigated the effect of curcumin on miR-98 expression and in vitro cell line growth and invasiveness in lung cancer. Curcumin treatment enhanced the expression of miR-98 and reduced that of the miR-98 target gene LIN28A as well as matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 2 and MMP9 in vitro and in vivo...

Background: Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors (AT/RTs) are deadly pediatric brain tumors driven by LIN28. Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is activated in many deadly, drug-resistant cancers and governs important cellular functions such as metabolism and survival. LIN28 regulates mTOR in normal cells. We therefore hypothesized that mTOR is activated downstream of LIN28 in AT/RT, and the brain-penetrating mTOR complex 1 and 2 (mTORC1/2) kinase inhibitor TAK228 would reduce AT/RT tumorigenicity...
