Background: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) were elucidated to act as competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) and to play significant roles in cancer initiation and progression. We aimed to identify the important circRNAs in lung adenocarcinoma and intended to predict the functions of them via the bioinformatics analysis.

Methods: We extracted data from three Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) datasets, GSE101586, GSE101684, and GSE104854, and identified the common differentially expressed circRNAs. Agarose gel electrophoresis and Sanger sequencing were used to verify these significant circRNAs. Then, qRT-PCR was performed to validate the expression through matched tissues and cell lines. Afterwards, a ceRNA network was constructed and functional analysis was performed to predict the potential mechanisms of circRNAs.

Results: Five circRNAs (hsa_circ_0072088, hsa_circ_0082564, hsa_circ_0008274, hsa_circ_0000519 and hsa_circ_0003528) were identified differentially expressed in the three datasets. Following the Agarose gel electrophoresis and qRT-PCR validation, hsa_circ_0072088 and hsa_circ_0008274 were chosen for further analysis. A ceRNA network of hsa_circ_0072088 and hsa_circ_0008274 was built based on the CSCD/TargetScan/MiRTarbase/StarBase 3.0. Then, the functional analysis showed that several meaningful terms were identified, such as "epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)", "Cellular response to TGF-β stimulus", "MAPK signaling pathway", and "PI3K-AKT signaling pathway". Finally, several significant circRNA/miRNA/mRNA regulatory axes, which were predicted relating to cancer progress, were noted from the network.

Conclusion: We identified significant circRNAs and meaningful circRNA-miRNA-mRNA networks to provide novel insight into pathogenesis and therapy of lung adenocarcinoma.

Successful surgical treatment of descending aorta interruption in a 29-year-old woman with acute paraplegia and subarachnoid hemorrhage: a case report.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2015 Jun 6;10:80. Epub 2015 Jun 6.

US Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Linköping Heart Center, Linköping, Sweden.

Interruption of the descending aorta is an extremely rare great vessel malformation. In this report, we describe a very unusual case of a 29-year-old female with a 13-year history of hypertension who was found to have an interruption of the descending aorta when she was hospitalized with a subarachnoid hemorrhage and symptoms of acute paraplegia. We successfully surgically corrected the defect using a Gore-Tex® graft to bypass the aortic interruption. The patient's blood pressure postoperatively returned to normal, and the patient recovered completely from her paraplegia by the time of her 5-month follow-up visit.
