Differences of miRNA expression profiling between GIST and leiomyoma tissue samples acquired by Tunneling Bloc Biopsy
ABSTRACT: miRNA expression profiling between GIST and leiomyoma specimens taken by Tunneling Bloc Biopsy Nine GIST patients and seven gastric leiomyoma patients underwent endoscopic biopsy called Tunnel Block Biopsy. MiRNAs were extracted from the tissues, then.
Small gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) rarely have malignant potential with poor prognosis. Using conventional imaging to differentiate between small GISTs and leiomyoma, which often have similar characteristics, is difficult but essential in daily practice. Although some studies have reported on the utility of serum c-kit as a biomarker for non-small GIST and specific miRNA, clinical aspects of such testing are controversial. The aim of this study was to identify differences between smal ...[more]
Project description:We compared the profile of miRNAs expressed in HEK293 and MRC5 cells that overexpressed KRASG12V to those expressed in parental cells that harbored wild-type KRAS. The results indicated that a subset of miRNAs was significantly down-regulated in KRASG12V transfected two cells. To address the functional relevance of miRNAs in KRAS mutant cancers, we transfected exogenous KRASG12V into HEK293 and MRC5 cells with wild type KRAS genes, and we comprehensively profiled the dysregulated miRNAs.
Project description:To elucidate the aetiology of HEH, especially with regard to microRNA (miRNA) profiles, samples obtained from three different parts of both normal and tumour tissues were analysed . The details of RNA extraction have been described in our previous reports. Interestingly, 16 miRNAs were significantly up-regulated and 51 miRNAs were down-regulated in the tumour tissues compared to the normal tissues (Student’s t-test, p<0.01). In addition, unsupervised hierarchical clustering analysis using a Pearson’s correlation showed that the tumour tissues clustered separately from the normal tissues. microRNA samples obtained from three different parts of both normal and tumour tissues were analysed
Project description:The changes of mature microRNA expression levels after apigenin treatment on Huh7 cells were determined. Huh7 cells were treated with 10microM apigenin for 24hr and the changes of global mature microRNA expression levels were determined.
Project description:HeLa cells were transiently transfected with siRNA against SUV39H1, a histone H3K9 methyltransferase. Several genes were significantly up- or down-regulated. HeLa cells were transiently transfected with siRNA against SUV39H1 or negative control siRNA. Then total RNA was extracted.
Project description:The objective of the present study is to investigate the role of processing glycosidase inhibition induced by processing glycosidase inhibitors, namely castanospermin as the processing glucosidases inhibitor, deoxymannojirimycin as the processing mannosidases inhibitor, and deoxyfuconojirimycin as the fucosidase inhibitor. Comparative gene expression analysis was performed in human cervical carcinoma HeLa cells, with non-inhibitor-treated cells as the negative control. Gene expression was analyzed using 3D-Gene® Human 25k oligonucleotide microarrays and computational gene expression analysis tools. Inhibition of processing glycosidases (glucosidases, mannosidases, and fucosidase) in human cervical carcinoma HeLa cells was performed by treating with a small molecule inhibitor and then culturing at 37°C. Total RNA samples were prepared from the cells. Gene expression was analyzed using 3D-Gene® Human 25k oligonucleotide microarrays. Sample preparation for array hybridization was carried out as described in the manufacturer's instructions.
Project description:Analysis of breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cells stably over-expressing SUV420H2, a histone H4K20 methyltransferase. Several genes were significantly up- or down-regulated. Results provide insight into the molecular mechanism by which H4K20me3 contributes to gene expression. SUV420H2 stably over-expressing MDA-MB-231 cells were cloned. Then total RNA was extracted from the SUV420H2 over-expressing cells and the parental MDA-MB-231 cells.
Project description:The microRNAs expression was markedly altered with the MCD diet. Using a custom microarray platform, we analyzed the expression levels of 1135 mouse microRNA probes in liver tissue that were fed MCD diet.
Project description:Recent studies have demonstrated that micro (mi)RNA molecules can be detected in the circulation and can serve as potential biomarkers of various diseases. This study used microarray analysis to identify aberrantly expressed circulating miRNAs in patients with type 1 autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) compared with healthy controls. Patients with well-documented and untreated AIH were selected from the National Hospital Organization (NHO)-AIH-liver-network database. They underwent blood sampling and liver biopsy with inflammation grading and fibrosis staging before receiving treatment. To further confirm the microarray data, circulating expression levels of miR-21 and miR-122 were quantified by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction in 46 AIH patients, 40 patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC), and 15 healthy controls. Consistent with the microarray data, serum levels of miR-21 were significantly elevated in AIH patients compared with CHC patients and healthy controls. miR-21 and miR-122 serum levels correlated with alanine aminotransferase levels. Circulating levels of miR-21 and miR-122 were significantly reduced in AIH patients with liver cirrhosis, and were inversely correlated with increased stages of fibrosis. By contrast, levels of circulating miR-21 showed a significant correlation with the histological grades of inflammation in AIH. We postulate that aberrantly expressed serum miRNAs are potential biomarkers of AIH and could be implicated in AIH pathogenesis. Alternations of miR-21 and miR-122 serum levels could reflect their putative roles in the mediation of inflammatory processes in AIH. Case-control study, steroid treatment
Project description:Microarray was performed to comprehensively examine microRNA induction in murine small intestine after exposure to total body g-irradiation. Small intestines were collected from Tlr3+/+ and Tlr3-/- mice at 0 and 6 hr after exposure to 10 Gy of total body g-irradiation. Samples were pooled from 3 mice. Total RNA was extracted and subjected to microRNA microarray analysis.
Project description:The microRNAs expression was altered with the treatment of metformin in vivo and several microRNAs induced by metformin also may contribute to suppressed of NASH. Using a custom microarray platform, we analyzed the expression levels of 1135 mouse microRNA probes in liver tissue in vivo that were treated with and without metformin.
