MiR-193a-3p functions as a tumour suppressor in human aldosterone-producing adrenocortical adenoma by down-regulating CYP11B2.

The mechanism of aldosterone-producing adrenocortical adenoma (APA) pathogenesis and the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in APA pathogenesis have not been completely clarified. We examined the expression and function of miR-140-3p, miR-193a-3p and miR-22-3p, which have binding sites in CYP11B2. Expression of miRNAs and CYP11B2 mRNA was measured by quantitative reverse transcription PCR (qRT-PCR). Cell proliferation was monitored by colorimetric analysis, and cell apoptosis and cell cycle progression were analysed by flow cytometry. ELISA was carried out to detect aldosterone levels in cell culture supernatants. Luciferase reporter assays, qRT-PCR and Western blotting were performed to identify CYP11B2 as a target of miR-193a-3p. Of the three miRNAs examined, miR-193a-3p exhibited a significant decrease and CYP11B2 mRNA exhibited a significant increase in expression in APA compared with adjacent normal adrenal gland tissue. Transfection of miR-193a-3p mimic into the human adrenocortical cell line H295R showed that elevated miR-193a-3p expression inhibits proliferation and aldosterone secretion, induces G1-phase arrest and promotes apoptosis in H295R cells. Furthermore, in luciferase reporter assays, overexpression of miR-193a-3p in H295R cells significantly reduced the luciferase activity of the wild-type CYP11B2 3'-UTR construct, which could be reversed by mutation of the miR-193a-3p-binding site. Moreover, miR-193a-3p overexpression downregulated CYP11B2 mRNA and protein expression. Finally, overexpression of CYP11B2 diminished the effects of miR-193a-3p on H295R cells. Taken together, our results suggest that CYP11B2 levels may be modulated by miR-193a-3p in APA, which could explain, at least partially, why downregulation of miR-193a-3p during APA formation may promote cell growth and suppress apoptosis.

MiR-181b regulates autophagy in a model of Parkinson's disease by targeting the PTEN/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease. Recent studies have shown that dysregulation of microRNA plays an important role in PD, and defects in autophagy are also critically associated with mechanisms underlying PD. We aim to investigate the effect of miR-181b on autophagy, particularly the involvement of miR-181b in the regulation of the phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN)/protein kinase B (Akt)/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway and neuronal autophagy in a 1-methyl-4- phenylpyridinium iodide(MPP)-induced cellular model of Parkinson's disease.

Combining Optogenetics with Artificial microRNAs to Characterize the Effects of Gene Knockdown on Presynaptic Function within Intact Neuronal Circuits.

The purpose of this protocol is to characterize the effect of gene knockdown on presynaptic function within intact neuronal circuits. We describe a workflow on how to combine artificial microRNA (miR)-mediated RNA interference with optogenetics to achieve selective stimulation of manipulated presynaptic boutons in acute brain slices. The experimental approach involves the use of a single viral construct and a single neuron-specific promoter to drive the expression of both an optogenetic probe and artificial miR(s) against presynaptic gene(s). When stereotactically injected in the brain region of interest, the expressed construct makes it possible to stimulate with light exclusively the neurons with reduced expression of the gene(s) under investigation. This strategy does not require the development and maintenance of genetically modified mouse lines and can in principle be applied to other organisms and to any neuronal gene of choice. We have recently applied it to investigate how the knockdown of alternative splice isoforms of presynaptic P/Q-type voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) regulates short-term synaptic plasticity at CA3 to CA1 excitatory synapses in acute hippocampal slices. A similar approach could also be used to manipulate and probe the neuronal circuitry in vivo.

miR-675 promotes odontogenic differentiation of human dental pulp cells by epigenetic regulation of DLX3.

In a previous study, we showed that microRNA-675 (miR-675) was significantly down-regulated in patients with tricho-dento-osseous (TDO) syndrome. One of the main features of TDO syndrome is dentin hypoplasia. Thus, we hypothesize that miR-675 plays a role in dentin development. In this study, we determined the role of miR-675 in the odontogenic differentiation of human dental pulp cells (hDPCs). Stable overexpression and knockdown of miR-675 in hDPCs were performed using recombinant lentiviruses containing U6 promoter-driven miR-675 and short hairpin-miR675 expression cassettes, respectively. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) assay, Alizarin red staining assay, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), Western blot analysis, and immunofluorescent staining revealed the promotive effects of miR-675 on the odontogenic differentiation of hDPCs. Further, we found that miR-675 facilitates the odontogenic differentiation process of hDPCs by epigenetic regulation of distal-less homeobox (DLX3). Thus, for the first time, we determined that miR-675 regulates the odontogenic differentiation of hDPCs by inhibiting the DNA methyltransferase 3 beta (DNMT3B)-mediated methylation of DLX3. Our findings uncover an unanticipated regulatory role for miR-675 in the odontogenic differentiation of hDPCs by epigenetic changes in DLX3 and provide novel insight into dentin hypoplasia feature in TDO patients.

A novel functional polymorphism of GSTM3 reduces clear cell renal cell carcinoma risk through enhancing its expression by interfering miR-556 binding.

Dysregulation of glutathione-S-transferase M3 (GSTM3) has been related to clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) in our former study. GSTM3 plays a pivotal role of detoxification and clearance of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour tissues. This study aimed to examine: (1) the associations between GSTM3 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and risk of ccRCC, and (2) the potential molecular mechanism accounting for its effects. 5 SNPs in 3'UTR of GSTM3 were initially genotyped in 329 cases and 420 healthy controls. A SNP-rs1055259 was found to be significantly associated with the susceptibility of ccRCC (OR = 0.59, 95% CI = 0.41-0.92; P = .019). The minor allele of rs1055259 (G allele) was associated with RCC risk. This SNP was predicted to affect microRNA (miR)-556 binding to 3'UTR of GSTM3 mRNA. To determine the functional impact, plasmid constructs carrying different alleles of rs1055259 were created. Compared to rs1055259 A-allele constructs, cells transfected with rs1055259 G-allele construct had higher transcriptional activity and were less responsive to miR-556 changes and gene expression. Elevated GSTM3 expression in G-allele cells was associated with ROS activity and ccRCC development. Taken together, this study indicated that a functional polymorphism of GSTM3 -rs1055259 reduced susceptibility of RCC in the Chinese population. It influenced GSTM3 protein synthesis by interfering miR-556 binding, subsequently suppressed ROS activity and ccRCC progression.

MiR-199a-5p attenuates retrograde transport and protects against toxin-induced inhibition of protein biosynthesis.

Retrograde transport (RT) allows cells the retrieval of receptors and other cellular cargoes to the Golgi contributing to the maintenance of cellular homeostasis. This transport route is also commonly used by several bacterial toxins to exert their deleterious actions on eukaryotic cells. While the retrograde transport process has been well characterized, the contribution of microRNAs (miRNAs) in regulating this cellular transport mechanism remains unknown. Here, we identified that the intronic miRNA family, , coordinate genes regulating RT and endosome trafficking. We demonstrate that miR-199a-5p attenuates the expression of Vps26A, Rab9B and M6PR, thereby controlling RT from endosomes to Trans Golgi network (TGN). Importantly, we found that overexpression of Vps26A construct resistant to miR-199a-5p inhibitory action abrogates the effect of miR-199a-5p on RT. Finally, we demonstrate that miR-199-5p overexpression attenuates Shiga toxin (STx-1)-mediated inhibition of protein biosynthesis. In summary, our work identifies the first non-coding RNA that influences RT and reduces protein biosynthesis inhibition caused by bacterial toxins.

A four-microRNA signature predicts lymph node metastasis and prognosis in breast cancer.

Recent findings have reported that human microRNAs (miRNAs) could serve as prognostic biomarkers in various cancers. We aimed to identify miRNAs that were associated with lymph node metastasis (LNM) and prognosis in breast cancer patients. A miRNA microarray covering 2019 mature miRNAs was used to identify differentially-expressed miRNAs in nine patients with LNM and three patients without LNM. Thirty-five differentially expressed miRNAs were identified, of which 10 significantly were up-regulated while the other 25 were down-regulated in tissues with LNM compared to those without LNM. Seven miRNAs were subjected to quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction PCR (qRT-PCR) and four miRNAs (miR-191-5p, miR-214-3p, miR-451a and miR-489) were validated in a total of 159 patients including a training set (n=64) and a validation set (n=95). The four miRNAs were used to construct a miRNA signature by Logistic regression. Risk scores derived from the four-miRNA signature were calculated to stratify the patients into high- or low-risk groups. Patients with high-risk scores had poorer overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) than those with low-risk scores. The miRNA signature was an independent prognostic factor. MiR-191 increased whereas miR-214-3p, miR-451a and miR-489 inhibited cell proliferation, migration, and invasion abilities. The four-miRNA signature may be a reliable prognostic and predictive tool for metastasis and survival in breast cancer patients.

Synthetic artificial "long non-coding RNAs" targeting oncogenic microRNAs and transcriptional factors inhibit malignant phenotypes of bladder cancer cells.

Both oncogenic transcription factors (TFs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in human cancers, acting as transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulators, respectively. These phenomena raise questions about the ability of an artificial device to simultaneously regulate miRNAs and TFs. In this study, we aimed to construct artificial long non-coding RNAs, "alncRNAs", and to investigate their therapeutic effects on bladder cancer cell lines. Based on engineering principles of synthetic biology, we combined tandem arrayed aptamer cDNA sequences for TFs with tandem arrayed cDNA copies of binding sites for the miRNAs to construct alncRNAs. In order to prove the utility of this platform, we chose β-catenin and the miR-183-182-96 cluster as the functional targets and used the bladder cancer cell lines 5637 and SW780 as the test models. Dual-luciferase reporter assay, real-time quantitative PCR (qRT-PCR) and related phenotypic experiments were used to test the expression of related genes and the therapeutic effects of our devices. The result of dual-luciferase reporter assay and qRT-PCR showed that alncRNAs could inhibit transcriptional activity of TFs and expression of corresponding microRNAs. Using functional experiments, we observed decreased cell proliferation, increased apoptosis, and motility inhibition in alncRNA-infected bladder cancer cells. What's more, follow-up mechanism experiments further confirmed the anti-tumor effect of our devices. In summary, our synthetic devices indeed function as anti-tumor regulators, which synchronously accomplish transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation in bladder cancer cells. Most importantly, anti-cancer effects were induced by the synthetic alncRNAs in the bladder cancer lines. Our devices, all in all, provided a novel strategy and methodology for cancer studies, and might show a great potential for cancer therapy if the challenges of in vivo DNA delivery are overcome.
