Effect of Combined Treatment with Ursolic Acid and Resveratrol on Skin Tumor Promotion by 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate.
Austin, United States. In Cancer Prev Res (phila), 22 Jul 2015
The combination of UA + Res inhibited TPA-induced signaling pathways, including EGFR, STAT3, Src, Akt, Cox-2, Fas, NF-κB, p38 MAPK, c-Jun, and JNK1/2 while increasing levels of tumor suppressors such as p21 and PDCD4 to a greater extent compared to the groups treated with the individual compounds.
MiR-21: an environmental driver of malignant melanoma?
Osnabrück, Germany. In J Transl Med, Dec 2014
MiR-21 is an oncomiR that affects critical target genes of malignant melanoma, resulting in sustained proliferation (PTEN, PI3K, Sprouty, PDCD4, FOXO1, TIPE2, p53, cyclin D1), evasion from apoptosis (FOXO1, FBXO11, APAF1, TIMP3, TIPE2), genetic instability (MSH2, FBXO11, hTERT), increased oxidative stress (FOXO1), angiogenesis (PTEN, HIF1α, TIMP3), invasion and metastasis (APAF1, PTEN, PDCD4, TIMP3).
miR-21 in ischemia/reperfusion injury: a double-edged sword?
Shanghai, China. In Physiol Genomics, Dec 2014
Preconditioning-induced upregulation of miR-21 contributes to the protection against subsequent renal I/R injury through the targeting of genes such as the proapoptotic gene programmed cell death 4 and interactions between miR-21 and hypoxia-inducible factor.
The role of microRNA in modulating myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury.
Galveston, United States. In Physiol Genomics, 2011
By altering the expression of various key elements in cell survival and apoptosis [such as phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K), phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN), Bcl-2, Mcl-1, heat shock protein (HSP)60, HSP70, HSP20, programmed cell death 4 (Pdcd4), LRRFIP1, Fas ligand (FasL), Sirt-1, etc.], miRNAs alter the response to ischemia-reperfusion injury.
MicroRNA-21 in cardiovascular disease.
Newark, United States. In J Cardiovasc Transl Res, 2010
Programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4), phosphatase and tensin homology deleted from chromosome 10 (PTEN), sprouty1 (SPRY1), and sprouty2 (SPRY2) are the current identified target genes of miR-21 that are involved in miR-21-mediated cardiovascular effects.
