Toxic RNAs containing expanded trinucleotide repeats are the cause of many neuromuscular disorders, one being myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). DM1 is triggered by CTG-repeat expansion in the 3'-UTR of the DMPK gene, resulting in toxic-gain of RNA function through sequestration of MBNL1 protein, among others. Herein we report the development of a relatively short MPPNA probe, two triplet-repeats in length, containing terminal pyrene moieties, that is capable of binding rCUG-repeats in a sequence-specific and selective manner...

SMAD7 disrupts the TGF-β signaling pathway by influencing TGFBR1 stability and by blocking the binding of TGFBR1 to SMAD2/3. In this study, we showed that SMAD7 attenuated the TGF-β signaling pathway in ovarian granulosa cells (GCs) by regulating TGFBR1 transcriptional activity. To function as a transcription factor, SMAD7 downregulated the mRNA levels of TGFBR1 via direct binding to the SMAD-binding elements (SBEs) within the promoter region of pig TGFBR1. We also showed that SMAD7 enhanced porcine GC apoptosis by interrupting TGFBR1 and the TGF-β signaling pathway...

Cytoplasmic polyadenylation is a widespread mechanism to regulate mRNA translation. In vertebrates, this process requires two sequence elements in target 3' UTRs, the U-rich cytoplasmic polyadenylation element and the AAUAAA hexanucleotide. In Drosophila melanogaster, cytoplasmic polyadenylation of Toll mRNA occurs independently of these canonical elements and requires a machinery that remains to be characterized. Here we identify Dicer-2 as a component of this machinery. Dicer-2, a factor previously involved in RNA interference (RNAi), interacts with the cytoplasmic poly(A) polymerase Wispy...

Abnormal expression and dysfunction of microRNAs are correlated with osteosarcoma (OS). This study demonstrated that the miR-187 level in OS tissues and cell lines was decreased. The proliferation and metastatic abilities of U-2OS cells were inhibited by miR-187 overexpression and promoted by miR-187 knockdown. Moreover, miR-187 also inhibited growth and metastasis of OS cells in vivo. Furthermore, we revealed that miR-187 could interact with S100A4 3'-UTR and inhibit S100A4 expression in OS cells. In summary, miR-187 inhibits growth and metastasis of OS cells by downregulating S100A4, which might be a potential biomarker and therapeutic target of OS...

High salinity and low temperatures can induce Artemia sinica to enter the diapause stage during embryonic development. Diapause embryos stop at the gastrula stage, allowing them to resist apoptosis and regulate cell cycle activity to guarantee normal development after diapause termination. P53 and DNA damage-regulated gene 1 (pdrg1) is involved in cellular physiological activities, such as apoptosis, DNA damage repair, cell cycle regulation, and promotion of programmed cell death. However, the role of pdrg1 in diapause and diapause termination in A...
