ABSTRACT

Non-coding RNA (ncRNA) used to be considered as a class of gene transcripts without protein-coding capacity. Whereas emerging evidence has demonstrated that a small fraction of ncRNAs are still capable of producing functional peptides. Such ncRNAs and corresponding peptides are highly conserved and homologous, and can be detected by sequencing or mass spectrometry analysis. In this paper, we searched several databases with the keywords of "non-coding RNA" and "peptide", and briefly reviewed the characteristics of ncRNA that can be translated into functional small peptides, detection methods of peptides, biological functions of peptides and clinical application value of peptides. The results show that these functional peptides are often involved in disease processes, such as regulation of tumor progression, muscle activity and immune disorders. NcRNA-encoded peptides can be used as novel and efficacious disease diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic tools, and further develop as anticancer therapeutic targets to provide new ideas for individual precise treatment of tumors.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To evaluate circulating miR-193 cluster as a biomarker for diagnosis of breast cancer (BC). @*Methods@#A total of 130 BC patients and 45 healthy controls (HCs) were enrolled. The level of miR-193 cluster was analyzed by using GEO database. RT-qPCR was used to evaluate the level of miR-193 cluster in serum of participants. Receivers operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was manipulated to investigate their diagnostic value for BC. @*Results@#In the screening stage, the results of GEO database indicated the expression of miR-193a-5p and miR-193b were decreased in the serum of BC patients with prior diagnostic value, and the significant decreased expressions of miR-193 cluster members, miR-193a-3p, -5p and miR-193b-3p, were observed in serum of BC patients compared with those in healthy controls by the determination of RT-qPCR(all P <0.01). In the validation stage, the AUCROC of miR-193a-5p and miR-193b-5p were 0.888 (95% CI :0.808-0.969) and 0.954 (95% CI :0.902-1.000), respectively. In addition, the combined AUCROC of these two miRNAs was 0.982 (95% CI :0.966-0.999). @*Conclusion@#miR-193a-5p and miR-193b-5p in serum could be served as diagnostic biomarker for screening of breast cancer, and the combined detections of the two miRNAs may exhibit more diagnostic efficiency and good clinical application potential.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#The purpose of this study is to explore the biological function of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) HMMR-AS1 in proliferation and metastasis of lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD). @*Methods@#Real-time fluorescence quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) was used to detect the expression of HMMR-AS1 and its sense strand HMMR in LUAD cell lines. Then we knock down the HMMR-AS1 expression through small interfering RNA and evaluate the transfection efficiency and its effect on the expression of HMMR. CCK-8 (cell counting kit), clone formation, flow cytometric analysis, wound scratch assay and transwell assay were used to assess the biological function of A549 and H1299 cells. Western blot was used to detect the protein expression of HMMR in the two cell lines after transfection with si-HMMR-AS1. @*Results@#The expression of HMMR-AS1 in A549 and H1299 cells of LUAD cell line was markedly higher than that in normal lung epithelial cell BEAS-2A by upregulating approximately 3.06 and 5.02 folds (P<0.05), respectively. After transfection with si-HMMR-AS1, the expression of HMMR-AS1 markedly reduced in both levels of transcription and protein (P<0.05). Furthermore, knocking down of HMMR-AS1 significantly inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion abilities, and increased the apoptosis rates of A549 and H1299 cells. @*Conclusion@#LncRNA HMMR-AS1 could promote malignant progression of LUAD cells through enhancing the growth, migration and invasion ability of LUAD cells.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To survey E-cadherin (E-cad) expression in tumor tissue and serum of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients, and to observe the clinical significance of their expression.@*METHODS@#Forty-eight samples of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma tissue, 23 samples of erosive esophagitis tissue, 24 samples of normal esophagus tissue and the corresponding sera were obtained. We used immunohistochemistry (IHC) to detect expression of E-cad in the tissues and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to examine expression of E-cad in the serum. Furthermore, we collected complete clinicopathological data from the participating patients.@*RESULTS@#The expression level of E-cad in the esophageal squamous cell carcinoma tissue was lower than that in normal esophagus tissues and erosive esophagitis tissues (P<0.05). Moreover, the expression level of E-cad was related to the depth of invasion, the status of lymph node metastasis and the level of differentiation of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (P<0.05). The expression level of serum E-cad of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients was obviously higher than that in the serum of normal esophagus controls and erosive esophagitis patients (P<0.05). But the expression level of E-Cad in the serum of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients was unrelated to clinicopathological features. The expression level of E-cad in the tissue was not correlated with that in the serum(P=0.134).@*CONCLUSION@#The expression of E-cad in tissues may assistin the diagnosis and prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. The expression of E-cad in the serum may assistin the diagnostic screening of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the correlation between three gene locus polymorphisms of X-ray repair cross-complementary protein 1 (XRCC1) exon (Arg194Trp, Arg280His and Arg399Gln) and the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). Methods A case-control study was performed in 250 CRC patients (case group, 128 colon cancer patients and 122 rectal cancer patients) and 213 healthy individuals (control group). The three gene locus polymorphism of XRCC1 was tested by polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method. The genotype distribution and allele frequency of each locus was analyzed with SPSS 10.0 software. Results There was no significant difference in allele frequency of XRCC1 at 194 and 399 loci (P > 0.05). However, the 280 Arg/His allele frequency of XRCC1 was higher in case group than that in control group (OR=1.66,95%CI:1.01~2.73,P=0.047). The 280Arg/His allele frequency was higher in rectal cancer group than that in control group (OR =1.82,95%CI:1.02~3.27). The frequency of 280His allele (Arg280His and His280His) was higher in case group than that in control group (OR=1.85,95%CI:1.06~3.22). However, it was a relative low risk factor of colon cancer and there was no significant difference between colon cancer group and control group (OR=1.85, 95%CI:1.06~3.22). Conclusions There was no correlation between XRCC1 Arg194Trp and Arg399Gln polymorpohisms and the risk of CRC. However, 280Arg/His genotype may increase the risk of CRC, and 280His allele is a risk factor of rectal cancer.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The dynamic changes of pneumocyte apoptosis and aspartate-specific cysteine proteases-3 (caspase-3) expression in lung tissue of rats during the process of lung ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury and the possible action mechanisms remain unclear.OBJECTIVE: This study was to observe the dynamic changes of pneumocyte apoptosis and caspase-3 expression in the rat lung tissue during the process of lung I/R injury, and to analyze the role of pneumocyte apoptosis and the possible action mechanism.DESIGN: A randomized controlled animal experiment.SETTING: Emergency Center, First Hospital, Nanjing Medical University.MATERIALS: This study was carried out in the Animal Laboratory of the First Hospital of Nanjing Medcial University and Nanjing Center for Radioimmunity between April 2006 and September 2006. Twenty-eight male healthy SD rats of clean grade, with body weight of 250 to 350 g, aged 49 to 76 days, were provided by the Experimental Animal Center of Nanjing Medical University. The involved rats were randomized into experimental group and control group, with 14 rats in each.METHODS: ①Experimental intervention: Rats in the experimental group were created into models of lung I/R injury according to the method of Eppinger et al. They were occluded for 45 minutes at the porta of lung (no systolic and diastolic reactions in lung tissue being considered as successful occlusion), and then they were reperfused (recovery of systolic and diastolic function being considered as successful reperfusion); After that, lung tissues were harvested at 3 and 6 hours after lung I/R injury, 7 rats at each time point. Each rat in the control group was subjected to a thoracotony only, but lung tissues were isolated at the same time point by the same method. ②Experimental evaluation: Apoptotic cells in the lung tissue were detected with a flow cytometer by Annexin-V-PI staining, and apoptosis rate was calculated. Caspase-3 expression in the lung tissue was observed by immunohistochemical method and image analysis. Wet to dry weight ratio(W/D) of lung tissue of rats in the two groups was calculated; the number of injured pulmonary alveoli at I/R 3 hours/that at I/R 6 hours was calculated for quantitative evaluation of injured lung tissue; Patho-morphological changes of lung tissue were observed by haematoxylin & eosin staining under an optical microscope.MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: ①Pneumocyte apoptosis rate and caspase-3 expression in the lung tissue. ②W/D of lung tissue and quantitative evaluation of injured lung tissue. ③Patho-morphological changes of lung tissue.RESULTS: Twenty-eight rats were involved in the final analysis, without deletion. ①Pneumocyte apoptosis rates in the experimental group at I/R 3 and 6 hours were significantly increased as compared with control group (P<0.01). In the experimental group, pneumocyte apoptosis rate was decreased a little at I/R 6 hours than at I/R 3 hours (P<0.05). ②Caspase-3 expression in the lung tissue of rats of experimental group reached its top at I/R 3 hours, and was decreased a little at I/R 6 hours. At each time point, caspase-3 expression in the experimental group was increased as compared with control group (P<0.01). ③In the experimental group, the number of injured pulmonary alveoli at I/R 3 hours/that at I/R 6 hours and W/D ratios of lung tissues were significantly increased as compared with control group (P<0.01). In the experimental group, two ratios at I/R 6 hours were higher than those at I/R 3 hours (P<0.05).④In the experimental group, the structure of pulmonary alveoli was destructed, collapsed and disappeared; lots of inflammatory cell infiltration was found; Patho-morphological changes of injured lung tissue at I/R 6 hours were severer than those at I/R 3 hours. No obvious changes were found in the control group.CONCLUSION: At the early stage of lung I/R injury, the alteration of caspase-3 maybe activate pneumocyte apoptosis and induce the apoptosis of lung tissue, and thereby leads to lung injury.

ABSTRACT

AIM The purpose is to study the influences on serum insulin and glucose by different fasting time in alloxan (ALX)-induced diabetic mice. METHODS Normal mice of serum glucose were determined at different fasting time. According to different fasting time (0 h, 6 h, 12 h, 18 h and 24 h), mice were divided into 5 diabetic experimental model (DEM) groups induced by ip ALX 200 mg/kg and 1 control group. Serum glucose (SG) and body weight were determined at experimental d0, d3, d8 and d13 and serum insulin concentration (SIC) at experimental d13. The death rate and succeeding rate were also observed during experimental time. RESULTS Along with prolonged fasting time, SG、death rate and succeeding rate were increased in DEM mice, SG of normal mice, and SIC and body weight of DEM mice were decreased. Results showed that the optimal fasting time of ALX-induced diabetic mice was 12~18 h a lower death rate and impairment to pancreatic islets. Fasting 18h diabetic mice had higher succeeding since during this time rate、lower death rate and longer hyperglycemia time. CONCLUSION This study indicated SG of mice in vivo had a protective effect against impairment action of pancreatic islets by ALX.
