MicroRNA-34a (miR-34a) is a tumor suppressive microRNA, which induces G1 arrest, apoptosis and senescence by repressing the expression of multiple oncogenes. This study aimed to investigate the biological function and molecular mechanisms of miR-34a in human renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cells. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) revealed that(More)
Cyclin D1 deregulation is implicated in the genesis of multiple human cancers. Importantly, nuclear cyclin D1 retention during S-phase promotes DNA re-replication and subsequent genomic instability, providing a direct correlation between aberrant cyclin D1/CDK4 activity, transcriptional regulation and double strand DNA break (DSB) induction. Together, these(More)
Inactivating Tp53 mutations are frequent genetic lesions in human tumors that harbor genomic instability, including B lineage lymphomas with IG translocations. Antigen receptor genes are assembled and modified in developing lymphocytes by RAG/AID-initiated genomic rearrangements that involve the induction of DNA double strand breaks (DSBs). Although TP53(More)
