Targeting strategies on miRNA-21 and PDCD4 for glioblastoma.
Shanghai, China. In Arch Biochem Biophys, 15 Sep 2015
Programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4) is critical in mediating apoptosis in GBM, and is downregulated by miR-21, which may mediate the resistance of glioblastoma cells against chemotherapy or radiation via its target genes PDCD4.
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.
