The outcomes demonstrated that miR-382-5p expression was markedly downregulated in human osteosarcoma tissues and cell strains in contrast with adjoining regular tissues.
Transfection of miR-382-5p mimics into MG63 and U2OS cells considerably inhibited the malignant behaviors of cells, together with decreased proliferation, migration, diminished colony formation and invasion, and promoted osteosarcoma cell apoptosis.
Bioinformatics prediction indicated that VEZF1 is a direct goal gene of miR-382-5p. Overexpression of VEZF1 restored osteosarcoma tumor growth inhibited by miR-382-5p in vivo.
As well as, overexpression of miR-382-5p restrained the expansion of xenograft osteosarcoma in nude mice following co-transfection, and overexpression of VEZF1 attenuated the inhibitory impact of miR-382-5p in nude mice.
miR-382-5p acted as a tumor suppressor gene and inhibited the malignant organic behaviors of human osteosarcoma cells and features related to straight concentrating on VEZF1. Taken collectively, these outcomes counsel that the miR-382-5p/VEZF1 interplay has an vital function in osteosarcoma growth and development, and thus could also be used as a diagnostic and therapeutic goal for osteosarcoma.

lncRNA ZFAS1 promotes the ox-LDL induced proliferation, invasion and migration of vascular smooth muscle cells

Atherosclerosis is a chronic progressive inflammatory vascular disease. The dysfunction of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) induced by oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) contributes to the formation of atherosclerotic lesions.
Additionally, upregulation of the long non-coding RNA zinc finger antisense 1 (ZFAS1) was observed in the plaques of patients with atherosclerosis. The aim of the present study was to explore the functional role of ZFAS1 in atherosclerosis progression.
Reverse transcription-quantitative PCR was performed to analyze ZFAS1 mRNA expression, and western blotting was performed to determine the protein expression levels of Ki67, proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), matrix metallopeptidase (MMP)2 and MMP9.
The Cell Counting Kit-8 assay was used to test cell viability. Finally, wound healing and Transwell chamber assays were performed to evaluate cell migration and invasion, respectively. The current findings demonstrated that ZFAS1 expression was upregulated by ox-LDL stimulation in VSMCs.
Moreover, ZFAS1 overexpression promoted the ox-LDL-induced proliferation, migration and invasion of VSMCs, and upregulated the expression levels of proteins associated with cellular proliferation (Ki67 and PCNA), migration and invasion (MMP2 and 9).
By contrast, ZFAS1-knockdown inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion of VSMCs, and suppressed cell proliferation-, migration- and invasion-associated protein expression. In conclusion, ZFAS1 promoted the ox-LDL-induced proliferation, invasion and migration of VSMCs. Thus, ZFAS1 may represent a novel biomarker for dysfunction of VSMCs in the pathological condition of atherosclerosis.
 MiRNA-4537 functions as a tumor suppressor in gastric cancer and increases the radiosensitivity of gastric cancer cells
Long non-coding RNA ZFAS1 alleviates bupivacaine-induced neurotoxicity by regulating the miR-421/zinc finger protein564 (ZNF564) axis
This research aimed to explore the biological role of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) ZFAS1 in bupivacaine-induced neurotoxicity. The levels of lncRNA ZFAS1, miR-421, and zinc finger protein 564 (ZNF564) were detected by RT-qPCR.
MTT and TUNEL assays were utilized to evaluate cell viability and apoptosis, respectively. Caspase-3 activity was measured by the caspase-3 activity assay kit. The binding ability between miR-421 and ZFAS1 or ZNF564 was confirmed by Rip and dual-luciferase reporter assays.
In this study, it was found that the levels of ZFAS1 and ZNF564 were gradually upregulated and miR-421 expression was downregulated with increasing concentrations of bupivacaine. Functional assays indicated that the silencing of ZFAS1 suppressed cell viability and facilitated cell apoptosis of SH-SY5Y cells, while overexpression of ZFAS1 had the opposite effects.
Moreover, it was identified that miR-421 was a target of ZFAS1, and ZFAS1 regulated the bupivacaine-induced neurotoxicity via miR-421. In addition, we confirmed that ZNF564 was a downstream target of miR-421.
The upregulation of miR-421 decreased the cell viability, and increased the cell apoptosis rate and caspase-3 activity, while the upregulation of ZND564 partially abolished these effects.
Finally, it was demonstrated that ZFAS1 could upregulate the expression of ZNF564 by targeting miR-421. In conclusion, our results demonstrated that ZFAS1 alleviated bupivacaine-induced neurotoxicity through the miR-421/ZNF564 axis, suggesting a new strategy for the amelioration of bupivacaine-induced neurotoxicity.
Colorectal most cancers (CRC) is among the main causes of cancer-associated mortality worldwide and at the moment ranks third within the USA by way of prevalence. Transgelin-2 (TAGLN2) was beforehand reported to function a tumor promoter in numerous varieties of most cancers.
The current research aimed to analyze the function of TAGLN2 within the development of CRC and to find out the potential underlying mechanism. The expression degree of TAGLN2 in CRC cells (HCT116, SNU-C1, LoVo and SW480) have been first detected by reverse transcription quantitative PCR and western blotting.
Following TAGLN2 knockdown via transfection with brief hairpin (sh)RNAs towards TAGLN2, CRC cell proliferation was decided utilizing Cell Counting Equipment-Eight and 5′-ethynyl-2′-deoxyuridine assays. Cell migration and invasion have been evaluated utilizing wound therapeutic and Transwell assays, respectively.
The expression ranges of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)2, MMP9 and proteins related to epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), together with N-cadherin (N-cad), vimentin, zinc finger E-box binding homeobox 2 (ZEB2) and E-cadherin (E-cad), have been additionally evaluated by western blotting.
Moreover, following TAGLN2 overexpression and using sign transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) inhibitors to deal with CRC cells, all of the aforementioned organic parameters have been evaluated.
The potential relationship between annexin 2 (ANXA2) and STAT3 was confirmed by western blotting evaluation. The expression degree of TAGLN2 was discovered to be significantly excessive in CRC cells. Following TAGLN2 knockdown, CRC cell proliferation, migration, invasion and EMT have been considerably inhibited.
TAGLN2 knockdown additionally suppressed STAT3 phosphorylation in CRC cells. As well as, the selling results of TAGLN2 overexpression on the development of CRC have been reversed by STAT3 inhibitor. Moreover, ANXA2 was positively related to STAT3.
Taken collectively, these findings demonstrated that TAGLN2 might promote the proliferation, invasion, migration and EMT of CRC cells by activating STAT3 and regulating ANXA2 expression.
