The modulatory role of the Bifidobacterium longum (BL), isolated from women breast milk, on some oncogenic and tumor suppressor miRNAs as well as IL-1β and IL6 targeted-miRNAs was investigated using murine colorectal cancer (CRC) induced on the top of inflammatory ulcerative colitis model. The investigation of the oncomiRs miR-21a and miR-155, which regulate IL-6 and IL-1β expression, indicated that both was depressed by BL-administration in healthy and in CRC-mice. BL-administration induced the tumor suppressor miRNAs (miR-145 and miR-15a) expression in both of the healthy and in CRC-mice. Read More
