miR-21 in Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury: A Double-edged Sword?
Shanghai, China. In Physiol Genomics, Sep 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 pro-apoptotic 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.
