Increasing evidence has revealed that aberrant expression of miRNAs contributes to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) development and progression. However, the roles and mechanisms of various miRNAs in NSCLC remain to be determined. In the present study, we confirmed that reduced miR-212 expression was present in NSCLC tissues and cell lines. Our clinical analysis revealed that the reduced miR-212 expression was significantly correlated with poor prognostic features including positive lymph node metastasis and advanced tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) stage...

The epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is an important developmental program exploited by cancer cells to gain mesenchymal features. Transcription factors globally regulating processes during EMT are often referred as 'master regulators' of EMT, and include members of the Snail and ZEB transcription factor families. The SRY-related HMG box (SOX) 4 transcription factor can promote tumorigenesis by endowing cells with migratory and invasive properties, stemness, and resistance to apoptosis, thereby regulating key aspects of the EMT program...

The sex-determining region Y-related high-mobility-group box transcription factor 4 (SOX4) plays a fundamental role during embryogenesis and controls cell fate and differentiation. Recently, increased SOX4 expression has been reported in various cancer types, contributing to the progression and survival of cancer cells. However, the distinct functions and downstream targets of SOX4 remain to be fully elucidated. In this study, we initially found elevated SOX4 expression in melanoma. SOX4 regulates apoptosis and cell cycle arrest, affects glucose consumption and lactate production, and consequently, promotes melanoma cell proliferation...

BACKGROUND: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a variety of cellular roles, including regulation of transcription and translation, leading to alterations in gene expression. Some lncRNAs modulate the expression of chromosomally adjacent genes. Here, we assess the roles of the lncRNA CASC15 in regulation of a chromosomally nearby gene, SOX4, and its function in RUNX1/AML translocated leukemia. RESULTS: CASC15 is a conserved lncRNA that was upregulated in pediatric B-acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) with t (12; 21) as well as pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with t (8; 21), both of which are associated with relatively better prognosis...

Incomplete understanding remains in the molecular mechanisms underlying progression and metastasis of renal cancer. The transcription factor SOX4 is upregulated in various human malignancies, including renal cancer, indicating it may be involved in renal tumorigenesis. In this study, we explored this hypothesis by loss-of-function and gain-of-function assays of SOX4 in renal cancer cell lines and renal epithelial cell line. We found that specific knockdown of SOX4 in renal cancer cell lines significantly suppressed the migration and invasion of cancer cells; specific overexpression of SOX4 in renal epithelial cell line markedly promoted the migration and invasion of the cell line...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer is one of the most serious disease and the incidence of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the highest in lung cancer. The main reason for the failure of chemotherapy is the tolerance to cisplatin. Transcriptional regulator SOX4 plays an important role in the occurrence and development of many tumors, and regulates Wnt signaling pathway by regulating the expression of β-catenin. We aimed to investigate the role of SOX4 on cisplatin-resistance in NSCLC cell A549 cell...

MicroRNAs are important factors in the pathogenic processes of human types of cancers including nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). In the present study, we confirmed that the microRNA-212 expression level was significantly decreased both in NPC tissues and NPC cell lines. Decreased expression of miR-212 was associated with advanced tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) stage and metastasis of NPC. Patients with a lower level of miR-212 had significantly decreased rates of overall and disease-free survival. Functional experiments showed that forced expression of miR-212 inhibited the migration and invasion of NPC cells while inhibition of miR-212 increased the migration and invasion of NPC cells...

The HMG-box transcription factor, SOX4, is the most highly expressed SOX family protein in pancreatic islets, and mutations in Sox4 are associated with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. We utilized an inducible β-cell knockout mouse model to test the hypothesis that Sox4 is essential for the maintenance of β-cell number during the development of type 2 diabetes. Knockout of Sox4 at 6 weeks of age resulted in time-dependent worsening of glucose tolerance, impairment of insulin secretion, and diabetes by 30 weeks of age...

In this study, we investigated whether there is any association between the expression of FSCN1 and SNAI2 and the possible underlying mechanisms in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSC). In addition, we also investigated whether FSCN1 modulates epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in HNSC cells. Microarray data of dysregulated genes in HNSC were searched in GEO datasets. The association between FSCN1 expression and the 5-year/10-year overall survival (OS), as well as the correlation between the expression of FSCN1 and SOX2, MYBL2, SNAI2, STAT1, and SOX4, was analyzed based on data in TCGA HNSC cohort (TCGA-HNSC)...
