MicroRNA profile in hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma
ABSTRACT: 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:To identify molecular biomakers that are useful for diagnosis and its targeting treatment, we compared the gene expression profile of myxiod liposarcoma with that of normal fat tissue. In the present study, we studied about gene expression profiles comparing 6 non-preoperative myxoid liposarcoma with 3 normal fat tissue.
Project description: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.
Project description:To evaluate involvement of miR-221 and miR-222 in lung cancer, we investigated the effects of miR-221 and miR-222 overexpression on six lung cancer cell lines as well as one immortalized normal human bronchial epithelial cell line. Two cell lines, H3255 and H1299 with no replicates were studied. Cells were transfected with miR-221, miR-222, or miR control. Microarray analysis was done to identify genes differentially expressed in lung cancer cells after the transfection of miR-221 or miR-222.
Project description:The miRNAs expression was markedly altered with the treatment of metformin in vitro and in vivo and various miRNAs induced by metformin also may contribute to tumor growth in vitro and in vivo. Using a custom microarray platform, we analyzed the expression levels of 985 human miRNA probes in the cell lines in vitro and tumorous tissues in vivo that were treated with and without metformin.
Project description:To identify microRNAs that regulate therapeutic resistance, we conducted a high-throughput miRNA microarray on a cohort study of primary NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer) tissues and adjacent normal tissues. We found some microRNAs related to therapeutic resistance and poor prognosis. In this study, the patients who were diagnosed with resected NSCLC (adenocarcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma) were enrolled. All tumors were reviewed by pathologists and were pathologically diagnosed according to the World Health Organisation Classification of Tumors. Twenty-nine patients who received four or more courses of first-line platinum-based chemotherapy after postoperative recurrence were divided into two groups (responder (n=17) and non-responder group (n=12)). As identified by ANOVA analysis and quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) of 4 groups, some miRNAs exhibited significant expression changes.
Project description:To identify molecular biomarkers that are useful for diagnosis and its targeting treatment, we analysed expression profile of synovial sarcoma tissue. In the present study, we studied gene expression profiles comparing 11 cases of synovial sarcoma.
Project description:The miRNAs expression was markedly altered with the treatment of metformin in vivo and various miRNAs induced by metformin also may contribute to tumor growth of cholangiocarcinoma in vivo. Using a custom microarray platform, we analyzed the expression levels of 985 human miRNA probes in the tumorous tissues in vivo that was treated with and without metformin.
Project description:The miRNAs expression was markedly altered with the treatment of galectin-9 in vivo and various miRNAs induced by galectin-9 also may contribute to tumor growth of cholangiocarcinoma in vivo. Using a custom microarray platform, we analyzed the expression levels of 2019 human miRNA probes in the tumorous tissues in vivo that was treated with and without galectin-9.
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: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.
