J Cell Physiol 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Immunology Research Center, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran.

microRNAs (miRNAs) are known as a large group of short noncoding RNAs, which structurally consist of 19-22 nucleotides in length and functionally act as one of the main regulators of gene expression in important biological and physiological contexts like cell growth, apoptosis, proliferation, differentiation, movement (cell motility), and angiogenesis as well as disease formation and progression importantly in cancer cell invasion, migration, and metastasis. Among these notable tiny molecules, many studies recently presented the important role of the miR-193 family comprising miR-193a-3p, miR-193a-5p, miR-193b-3p, and miR-193b-5p in health and disease biological processes by interaction with special targeting and signaling, which mainly contribute as a tumor suppressor. Therefore, in the present paper, we review the functional role of this miRNA family in both health and disease conditions focusing on various tumor developments, diagnoses, prognoses, and treatment.

The crucial role of ZEB2: From development to epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and cancer complexity.

J Cell Physiol 2019 Feb 17. Epub 2019 Feb 17.

Hematology Division, Immunology Department, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran.

Zinc finger E-box binding homeobox 2 (ZEB2) is a DNA-binding transcription factor, which is mainly involved in epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). EMT is a conserved process during which mature and adherent epithelial-like state is converted into a mobile mesenchymal state. Emerging data indicate that ZEB2 plays a pivotal role in EMT-induced processes such as development, differentiation, and malignant mechanisms, for example, drug resistance, cancer stem cell-like traits, apoptosis, survival, cell cycle arrest, tumor recurrence, and metastasis.

J Cell Physiol 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Vascular Surgery, China-Japan Union Hospital of Jilin University, Changchun, China.

Ras-extracellular signal-regulated protein kinases 1 and 2 (ERK1/2) signaling has been proposed as the crucial regulators in the development of various cancers. Histone acetylation at H3 lysine 14 (H3K14ac) is closely associated with gene expression and DNA damage. However, whether H3K14ac participates in mediating Ras-ERK1/2-induced cell proliferation and migration in uveal melanoma cells remains unknown. Read More

The p35/CDK5 signaling is regulated by p75NTR in neuronal apoptosis after intracerebral hemorrhage.

J Cell Physiol 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Neurology, Affiliated Hospital of Nantong University, Nantong, Jiangsu Province, People's Republic of China.

The p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR), a member of tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, involves in neuronal apoptosis after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). It has been previously demonstrated that phosphorylation of p35 is a crucial factor for fighting against the proapoptotic p25/CDK5 signaling in neuronal apoptosis. Then, in ICH models of rats and primary cortical neurons, we found that the expressions of p75NTR, p-histone H1 (the kinase activity of CDK5), p25, Fas-associated phosphatase-1 (FAP-1), and phosphorylated myocyte enhancer factor 2D (p-MEF2D) were enhanced after ICH, whereas the expression of p35-Thr(138) was attenuated.

8-chloro-adenosine activity in FLT3-ITD acute myeloid leukemia.

J Cell Physiol 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Hematology Malignancies and Stem Cell Transplantation Institute, Gehr Family Center for Leukemia Research, City of Hope National Medical Center, Duarte, California.

Nucleoside analogs represent the backbone of several distinct chemotherapy regimens for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and combination with tyrosine kinase inhibitors has improved survival of AML patients, including those harboring the poor-risk FLT3-ITD mutation. Although these compounds are effective in killing proliferating blasts, they lack activity against quiescent leukemia stem cells (LSCs), which contributes to initial treatment refractoriness or subsequent disease relapse. The reagent 8-chloro-adenosine (8-Cl-Ado) is a ribose-containing, RNA-directed nucleoside analog that is incorporated into newly transcribed RNA rather than in DNA, causing inhibition of RNA transcription.
