  • Resveratrol attenuates bone cancer pain through regulating the expression
           levels of ASIC3 and activating cell autophagy
    • Authors: Zhu H; Ding J, Wu J, et al.
      Abstract: Bone cancer pain (BCP) is one of the most common pains in patients with malignant cancers. The mechanism underlying BCP is largely unknown. Our previous studies and the increasing evidence both have shown that acid-sensing ion channels 3 (ASIC3) is an important protein in the pathological pain state in some pain models. We hypothesized that the expression change of ASIC3 might be one of the factors related to BCP. In this study, we established the BCP model through intrathecally injecting rat mammary gland carcinoma cells (MRMT-1) into the left tibia of Sprague-Dawley female rats, and found that the BCP rats showed bone destruction, increased mechanical pain sensitivities and up-regulated ASIC3 protein expression levels in L4–L6 dorsal root ganglion. Then, resveratrol, which was intraperitoneally injected into the BCP rats on post-operative Day 21, dose-dependently increased the paw withdrawal threshold of BCP rats, reversed the pain behavior, and had an antinociceptive effect on BCP rats. In ASIC3-transfected SH-SY5Y cells, the ASIC3 protein expression levels were regulated by resveratrol in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Meanwhile, resveratrol also had an antinociceptive effect in ASIC3-mediated pain rat model. Furthermore, resveratrol also enhanced the phosphorylation of AMPK, SIRT1, and LC3-II levels in ASIC3-transfected SH-SY5Y cells, indicating that resveratrol could activate the AMPK-SIRT1-autophagy signal pathway in ASIC3-transfected SH-SY5Y cells. In BCP rats, SIRT1 and LC3-II were also down-regulated. These findings provide new evidence for the use of resveratrol as a therapeutic treatment during BCP states.

  • Alterations in NO/ROS ratio and expression of Trx1 and Prdx2 in
           isoproterenol-induced cardiac hypertrophy
    • Authors: Su H; Pistolozzi M, Shi X, et al.
      Abstract: The development of cardiac hypertrophy is a complicated process, which undergoes a transition from compensatory hypertrophy to heart failure, and the identification of new biomarkers and targets for this disease is greatly needed. Here we investigated the development of isoproterenol (ISO)-induced cardiac hypertrophy in an in vitro experimental model. After the induction of hypertrophy with ISO treatment in H9c2 cells, cell surface area, cell viability, cellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), and nitric oxide (NO) levels were tested. Our data showed that the cell viability, mitochondrial membrane potential, and NO/ROS balance varied during the development of cardiac hypertrophy in H9c2 cells. It was also found that the expression of thioredoxin1 (Trx1) and peroxiredoxin2 (Prdx2) was decreased during the cardiac hypertrophy of H9c2 cells. These results suggest a critical role for Trx1 and Prdx2 in the cardiac hypertrophy of H9c2 cells and in the transition from compensated hypertrophy to de-compensated hypertrophy in H9c2 cells, and our findings may have important implications for the management of this disease.

  • Immature colon carcinoma transcript-1 promotes proliferation of gastric
           cancer cells
    • Authors: Wang Z; Jin G, Wu Q, et al.
      Abstract: Gastric cancer is the fourth most common malignant tumor and has been considered as one of the leading causes of cancer-related death worldwide. The identification of the molecular mechanism during gastric cancer progression is urgently needed, which will help to develop more effective treatment strategies. As a component of the human mitoribosome, immature colon carcinoma transcript-1 (ICT1) might be involved in tumor formation and progression. However, its biological function and the corresponding mechanism in gastric cancer have been poorly characterized. To study the mechanism of ICT1 in gastric cancer, we first investigated the mRNA levels of ICT1 in human normal and gastric cancer tissues using datasets from the publicly available Oncomine database. The results showed that ICT1 is overexpressed in gastric cancer tissues. Then in order to study the role of ICT1 in gastric cancer, two shRNAs were used to silence ICT1 in MGC80-3 and AGS cells. Functional analysis showed ICT1 knockdown significantly inhibited the proliferation of gastric cancer cells and induced apoptosis. Further, mechanistic study demonstrated that ICT1 silencing induced cell-cycle arrest at G2/M phase via the suppression of cyclin A2 and cyclin B1. In addition, ICT1 silencing also increased cleaved caspase-3 and activated PARP in gastric cancer cells. These findings suggest that ICT1 may play a crucial role in promoting gastric cancer proliferation in vitro.

  • sTLR4/MD-2 complex inhibits colorectal cancer migration and invasiveness
           in vitro and in vivo by lncRNA H19 down-regulation
    • Authors: Liang W; Zou Y, Qin F, et al.
      Abstract: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have multiple functions in gene regulation and during cellular processes. However, the functional roles of lncRNAs in colorectal cancer (CRC) have not yet been well understood. In our previous study, we demonstrated that sTLR4/MD-2 complex can inhibit CRC in vitro and in vivo by targeting LPS. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to investigate the expression of lncRNA H19 in CRC and to evaluate its effect on the inhibition of sTLR4/MD-2 complex. The expression of H19 is measured in 63 CRC tumor tissues and adjacent normal tissues by quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). The effects of H19 on migration and invasiveness are evaluated by wound healing assay, migration and invasion assays. Results showed that H19 is significantly overexpressed in cancerous tissues and CRC cell lines compared with adjacent normal tissues and a normal human intestinal epithelial cell line. Moreover, H19 overexpression is closely associated with CRC patients. Our in vitro data indicated that knockdown of H19 inhibits the migration and invasiveness of CRC cells. And in vivo sTLR4/MD-2 complex inhibits tumor growth in mice and the expression of H19 is down-regulated. These results suggest that sTLR4/MD-2 complex inhibits CRC migration and invasiveness in vitro and in vivo by lncRNA H19 down-regulation.

  • The p16/miR-217/EGR1 pathway modulates age-related tenogenic
           differentiation in tendon stem/progenitor cells
    • Authors: Han W; Wang B, Liu J, et al.
      Abstract: Previous studies have shown that the differentiation potential declines with the age of progenitor cells and is linked to altered levels of senescence markers. The purpose of this study was to test whether senescence marker p16 affects age-related tenogenic differentiation in tendon stem/progenitor cells (TSPCs). Young and aged TSPCs were isolated from young/healthy and aged/degenerated human Achilles tendons, respectively. Cellular aging and capacity for tenogenic differentiation were examined. The results showed that the tenogenic differentiation capacity of TSPCs significantly decreases with advancing age. TSPCs from elderly donors showed upregulation of senescence-associated β-galactosidase and p16 and concurrently a decrease in Type I collagen concentration and in the expressions of tendon-related markers: Scx, Tnmd, Bgn, Dcn, Col1, and Col3. Overexpression of p16 significantly inhibited tenogenic differentiation of young TSPCs. Analysis of the mechanism revealed that this effect is mediated by microRNA-217 and its target EGR1. These results indicated that p16 inhibits tenogenic differentiation of TSPCs via microRNA signaling pathways, which may serve as a potential target for the prevention or treatment in the future.

  • Endothelial cells modified by adenovirus vector containing nine copies
           hypoxia response elements and human vascular endothelial growth factor as
           the novel seed cells for bone tissue engineering
    • Authors: Song X; Shi L, Chen L, et al.
      Abstract: Vascularization is one of the hotspots during the development of new therapeutic strategies for bone tissue engineering, which can alleviate hypoxic circumstance and prevent transplant failure. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene transfection using recombinant adenovirus (Ad) vector can effectively promote angiogenesis, but uncontrolled long-term continuous expression of VEGF brings safety concern. Here we constructed a recombinant Ad vector containing nine copies of HRE promoter and the hVEGF165 gene, which conserved the oxygen sensitivity of hypoxia-inducible factor-1/hypoxia response elements (HIF-1/HRE). After transfection into human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC), the hVEGF165 mRNA and protein levels were much higher in response to hypoxia, as revealed by RT-PCR and ELISA, respectively. Furthermore, Ad-9HRE-hVEGF165 vector effectively promoted proliferation, migration and tube formation of HUVEC under hypoxic conditions. Thus we believe that the Ad-9HRE-hVEGF165 vector can contribute to the regulation of vascularization, which may provide a new approach for a better control of the expression of hVEGF165 during bone tissue engineering.

  • Lipopolysaccharide promotes angiogenesis in mice model of HCC by
           stimulating hepatic stellate cell activation via TLR4 pathway
    • Authors: Lu Y; Xu J, Chen S, et al.
      Abstract: Angiogenesis plays a key role in the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study aimed to investigate whether lipopolysaccharide (LPS) could promote HCC angiogenesis and the role of hepatic stellate cell (HSC) in this process. In vivo orthotopic HCC model and the effect of LPS on HSC in vitro were studied. Our results demonstrated that LPS-induced HSC activation during the promotion of HCC growth and angiogenesis in mice. The LPS-TLR4 (Toll-like receptor 4) pathway in HSC is responsible for HCC angiogenesis. LPS-induced secretion of pro-angiogenic factors from HSC could promote endothelial cell migration and tubulogenesis. This study suggests that LPS acts with HSC in tumor stroma and promotes the secretion of pro-angiogenic factors that increase angiogenesis in HCC.

  • Effects of 12 C 6+ heavy ion beam irradiation on the p53 signaling pathway
           in HepG2 liver cancer cells
    • Authors: Liu K; Zhao X, Gu J, et al.
      Abstract: The heavy ion beam is considered to be the ideal source for radiotherapy. The p53 tumor suppressor gene senses DNA damage and transducts intracellular apoptosis signals. Previous reports showed that the heavy ion beam can trigger complex forms of damage to cellular DNA, leading to cell cycle arrest and apoptosis of HepG2 human liver cancer cells; however, the mechanisms remains unclear fully. In order to explore whether the intrinsic or extrinsic pathway participates this process, HepG2 cells were treated with 12C6+ HIB irradiation at doses of 0 (control), 1, 2, 4, and 6 Gy with various methods employed to understand relevant mechanisms, such as detection of apoptosis, cell cycle, and Fas expression by flow cytometry, analysis of apoptotic morphology by electron microscopy and laser scanning confocal microscopy, and screening differentially expressed genes relating to p53 signaling pathway by PCR-array assay following with any genes confirmed by western blot analysis. This study showed that 12C6+ heavy ion beam irradiation at a dose of 6 Gy leads to endogenous DNA double-strand damage, G2/M cell cycle arrest, and apoptosis of human HepG2 cells via synergistic effect of the extrinsic and intrinsic pathways. Differentially expressed genes in the p53 signaling pathway related to DNA damage repair, apoptosis, cycle regulation, metastasis, deterioration and radioresistance were also discovered. Consequently, the expressions of Fas, TP53BP2, TP53AIP1, and CASP9 were confirmed upregulated after 12C6+ HIB irradiation treatment. In conclusion, this study demonstrated the mechanisms of inhibition and apoptosis induced by 12C6+ heavy ion beam irradiation on HepG2 cancer cells is mediated by initiation of the biological function of p53 signaling pathway including extrinsic and intrinsic apoptosis pathway.

  • Doxycycline synergizes with doxorubicin to inhibit the proliferation of
           castration-resistant prostate cancer cells
    • Authors: Zhu C; Yan X, Yu A, et al.
      Abstract: Castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is fatal and there is currently no effective clinical treatment. The antibiotic doxycycline has shown anti-cancer effect in several kinds of solid tumors including prostate cancer. In this study, a combination of doxycycline and doxorubicin was used to investigate the synergistic effect on CRPC cells. MTT assay was employed to determine the viability of cells in two-dimensional (2D) cultures. Apoptosis was determined by Annexin V/propidium iodide (PI) double staining assay. Cell cycle was analyzed by PI staining, and reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) was used to determine the expressions of apoptosis-related genes at mRNA level. Western blot analysis was used to analyze the expressions of Bcl-2, Bax, and Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase proteins. Cytotoxicity assay and morphological observation of PC3 cells in three-dimensional (3D) cultures were used to determine the effect of combination treatment. Results showed that doxycycline combined with doxorubicin significantly inhibited PC3 cells in both 2D and 3D cultures, enhanced apoptosis, and increased the accumulation of cells in G2/M phase. RT-PCR showed down-regulation of Bcl-2 and up-regulation of Bax mRNA after combination treatment. Meanwhile, western blot analysis showed that combination treatment resulted in down-regulation of Bcl-2 protein and up-regulation of Bax protein, and that PARP cleavage was obviously exhibited after combination treatment. Confocal imaging analysis indicated that doxorubicin penetrated deeply into the core of spheroids when combined with doxycycline. These data indicated that doxycycline in combination with doxorubicin had a synergistic effect on PC3 cells and may provide a potential novel strategy for the treatment of CRPC.

  • Role of the neuroendocrine antimicrobial peptide catestatin in innate
           immunity and pain
    • Authors: Deng Z Xu C.
      Abstract: Catestatin (CST) is a neuroendocrine peptide which is derived from the chromogranin A. It has been demonstrated that CST can affect a wide range of processes, such as innate immunity, inflammatory and autoimmune reactions, and several homeostatic regulations. Furthermore, CST is positive against several kinds of bacterial strains at micromolecular range, which shows its antimicrobial activity. Recently, the role of CST in acute and chronic pain has attracted much attention. In this review, we discussed the latest research findings of CST and its role in innate immunity and pain.
