MicroRNA-155 (miR-155) regulates antitumor immune responses. However, its specific functions within distinct immune cell types have not been delineated in conditional knockout (KO) mouse models. In this study, we investigated the role of miR-155 specifically within T cells during the immune response to syngeneic tumors. We found that miR-155 expression within T cells is required to limit syngeneic tumor growth and promote interferon gamma (IFNγ) production by T cells within the tumor microenvironment. Consequently, we found that miR-155 expression by T cells is necessary for proper tumor-associated macrophage (TAM) expression of IFNγ-inducible genes...

Invariant Natural Killer T (iNKT) cells are adaptive T cells with innate-like characteristics including rapid cytokine production and proliferative response to stimulation. Development of these cells in the thymus is dependent on expression of the microRNA (miRNA) processing enzyme Dicer indicating iNKT cells likely have distinct miRNA requirements for gene regulation during development. The miRNA, miR-155, has previously been shown to have numerous roles in T cells, including regulation of proliferation and differentiation and positive modulation of IFN-γ expression...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in regulation of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) during breast cancer progression. The purpose of this study was to analyze the clinicopathologic significance of expression of EMT-related miRNAs, miR-9 and miR-155, in triple-negative breast cancers (TNBCs). We analyzed relative expression levels of miR-9 and miR-155 in 190 surgically resected TNBC specimens using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction. Then we analyzed the relationship between these miRNA expression levels and EMT marker expression (vimentin, smooth muscle actin (SMA), osteonectin, N-cadherin, E-cadherin, CD146, and ZEB1) assessed by immunohistochemistry...

We studied the expression of microRNA-146a and microRNA-155 in placental villi from 18 women (26-39 weeks of gestation) of reproductive age with early- or late-onset preeclampsia. The reference group consisted of women with physiological pregnancy and full-term gestation and with preterm birth after caesarian section on gestation week 26-31. MicroRNA-146a and microRNA-155 were detected by in situ hybridization with digoxigenin on paraffin sections. It was found that the expression of microRNA-146a in both syncytiotrophoblast of the intermediate villi and syncytial knots was lower at late-onset preeclampsia than at physiologic pregnancy of full-term period (p=0...

Periodontitis is a prevalent and chronic inflammatory disease that is interrelated with systemic health. Periodontitis can be promoted by tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α). Cementum, a vital part of the periodontium, is a bone-like mineralized tissue that is produced by cementoblasts. Our laboratory previously revealed that TNF-α inhibits cementoblast differentiation and mineralization. However, how TNF-α modulates cementoblast differentiation and mineralization remains largely unknown. MicroRNA-155 (miR-155) is induced and regulates TNF-α-inhibited osteogenic differentiation...

Arsenite is a well-documented human lung carcinogen but the detailed mechanisms of carcinogenesis remain unclear. In this study, human bronchial epithelial (16-HBE) cells were continuously exposed to 2.5μM arsenite for about 13 weeks to induce the phenotypes of malignant transformation. Our results showed that Nrf2 expression was gradually decreased whereas no significant change was observed on NF-κB activation with increased time of arsenite exposure. To test the roles of Nrf2-meidtaed oxidative damage in the arsenite-induced malignant transformation, we compared the levels of cGMP, PKG and oxidative damage-related indicators between arsenic-transformed cells and control cells...

microRNA-155 (miR-155) is implicated in regulating B-cell activation and survival that is important in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) pathogenesis. PU.1, a target for miR-155, is a crucial regulator of B-cell development and enhances Tumour-Necrosis-factor-alpha (TNF-α) expression. TNF-α induces the expression of B-cell-activating-factor (BAFF). BAFF is reported to increase the expression of the autoimmunity marker; CD19. This study aimed to investigate the regulation of expression of PU.1 in pediatric-systemic-lupus-erythematosus (pSLE) patients by miR-155, and hence evaluate its impact on TNF-α/BAFF/CD19 signalling pathway...

Diabetes leads to amputation in approximately 15% to 20% of patients and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Thus, improving the quality of wound healing in this condition is essential. Diabetes is associated with acute/chronic inflammation affecting all organs especially the foot, while, inhibition of microRNA-155 (miR-155) has been reported to improve or reduce inflammatory situation. However, the role of miR-155 inhibition in promoting diabetic wound healing is not clear. To further study the potential benefit of miR-155 inhibition, a study of male Sprague-Dawley rats was conducted and diabetes was induced by injection of streptozotocin...

Novel therapeutic interventions for obesity and comorbid conditions require knowledge of the molecular elements playing a role in the development of obesity. Chronic low-grade inflammation has been consistently reported in obese individuals. In this study, we first determined whether key molecular modulators of inflammation, microRNA-155 (mir-155) and microRNA-146a (miR-146a), are regulated by an obesogenic diet within brain regions associated with reward, metabolism and energy balance. C57BL/6J mice were chronically exposed to a high fat diet (HFD) or a standard chow (CTL)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Men with terminal renal failure are often infertile. Anti-müllerian hormone (AMH), a marker of Sertoli cell function, is decreased among men with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Recently, a microRNA, miR-155, has been shown to be a potential marker for subfertility. We studied miR-155 and semen parameters in patients with CKD who were not yet on dialysis. We also aimed to study possible associations between AMH, miR-155, and semen parameters to evaluate them as markers of fertility...
