A Hemocyanin-Derived Antimicrobial Peptide (Peptide B11) Attenuates Cancer Cells' Proliferation.

Molecules 2018 Dec 5;23(12). Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Biology and Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Marine Biotechnology, Shantou University, Shantou 515063, China.

Antimicrobial peptides play important roles in the immune response to pathogens and tumor cells; for this reason, they are being exploited for therapeutic use. In this study, we describe a hemocyanin-derived peptide, denoted B11, which shares similar features with other anticancer peptides and attenuates the proliferation of cancer cells. Cell viability assay revealed that B11 significantly inhibited the proliferation of human cervical (HeLa), human hepatocellular carcinoma (HepG2), and human esophageal cancer (EC109) cancer cell lines, but not normal liver cell lines (T-antigen-immortalized human liver epithelial (THLE) cells or THLE-3), by inducing morphological changes, nuclear condensation, and margination, features which are indicative of apoptosis.

Identifying and Exploiting Potential miRNA-Disease Associations With Neighborhood Regularized Logistic Matrix Factorization.

Front Genet 2018 7;9:303. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

School of Mathematics, Liaoning University, Shenyang, China.

With the rapid development of biological research, microRNAs (miRNA) have become an attractive topic because lots of experimental studies have revealed the significant associations between miRNAs and diseases. However, considering that experiments are expensive and time-consuming, computational methods for predicting associations between miRNAs and diseases have become increasingly crucial. In this study, we proposed a neighborhood regularized logistic matrix factorization method for miRNA-disease association prediction (NRLMFMDA) by integrating miRNA functional similarity, disease semantic similarity, Gaussian interaction profile kernel similarity, and experimentally validation of disease-miRNA association.

Purpose Cancer surveillance provides a critical evidence base to guide cancer control efforts, yet population-based coverage in Africa is sparse. Hospital-based registries may help fill this need by providing local epidemiologic data to guide policy and forecast local health care needs. We report the epidemiology of patients with cancer recorded by a de novo hospital-based cancer registry at Kamuzu Central Hospital, Malawi, the sole provider of comprehensive oncology services for half the country and location of a high-volume pathology laboratory.

Mendelian randomization studies of cancer risk: a literature review.

Curr Epidemiol Rep 2018 Jun 18;5(2):184-196. Epub 2018 May 18.

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94158.

Purpose Of Review: In this paper, we summarize prior studies that have used Mendelian Randomization (MR) methods to study the effects of exposures, lifestyle factors, physical traits, and/or biomarkers on cancer risk in humans. Many such risk factors have been associated with cancer risk in observational studies, and the MR approach can be used to provide evidence as to whether these associations represent causal relationships. MR methods require a risk factor of interest to have known genetic determinants that can be used as proxies for the risk factor (i. Read More

TLHNMDA: Triple Layer Heterogeneous Network Based Inference for MiRNA-Disease Association Prediction.

Front Genet 2018 3;9:234. Epub 2018 Jul 3.

School of Information and Control Engineering, China University of Mining and Technology, Xuzhou, China.

In recent years, microRNAs (miRNAs) have been confirmed to be involved in many important biological processes and associated with various kinds of human complex diseases. Therefore, predicting potential associations between miRNAs and diseases with the huge number of verified heterogeneous biological datasets will provide a new perspective for disease therapy. In this article, we developed a novel computational model of Triple Layer Heterogeneous Network based inference for MiRNA-Disease Association prediction (TLHNMDA) by using the experimentally verified miRNA-disease associations, miRNA-long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) interactions, miRNA function similarity information, disease semantic similarity information and Gaussian interaction profile kernel similarity for lncRNAs into an triple layer heterogeneous network to predict new miRNA-disease associations.

In-depth characterization of the cisplatin mutational signature in human cell lines and in esophageal and liver tumors.

Genome Res 2018 05 9;28(5):654-665. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Cancer and Stem Cell Biology, Duke-NUS Medical School, 169857 Singapore.

Cisplatin reacts with DNA and thereby likely generates a characteristic pattern of somatic mutations, called a mutational signature. Despite widespread use of cisplatin in cancer treatment and its role in contributing to secondary malignancies, its mutational signature has not been delineated. We hypothesize that cisplatin's mutational signature can serve as a biomarker to identify cisplatin mutagenesis in suspected secondary malignancies. Read More
