MiRNA changes after overexpression of uc.372 in HepG2 cells

ABSTRACT: To identify putative miRNA targets for uc.372, we overexpressed uc.372 in HepG2 cells and carried out a microarray analysis. A total of 66 miRNAs present in the array demonstrated 1.5-fold upregulation or downregulation of expression upon uc.372 transfection. Overall design: HepG2 cells were tranfected with ad-uc.372 or ad-NC for 48 h. The RNA was collected and further applied for microarray analysis.

Ultraconserved (uc) RNAs, a class of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), are conserved across humans, mice, and rats, but the physiological significance and pathological role of ucRNAs is largely unknown. Here we show that uc.372 is upregulated in the livers of db/db mice, HFD-fed mice, and NAFLD patients. Gain-of-function and loss-of-function studies indicate that uc.372 drives hepatic lipid accumulation in mice by promoting lipogenesis. We further demonstrate that uc.372 binds to pri-miR-195/pri-m  ...[more]
