Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as new players in cancer as they are implicated in diverse biological processes and aberrantly expressed in a variety of human cancers. No data are available on their function under genotoxic stress-induced apoptosis. In this work, we assessed the behavior of some candidate lncRNAs (HOTAIR, MALAT1, TUG1,(More)
Exosomes are membranous vesicles containing various biomolecules including lncRNAs which are involved in cellular communication and are secreted from many cells including cancer cells. In our study, investigated the exosomal GAS5 and lincRNA-p21 lncRNA levels in urine samples from 30 patients with prostate cancer (PCa) and 49 patients with benign prostatic(More)
microRNAs (miRNAs) are small molecules in their mature form and master regulators of gene expression. Recent work has shown that miRNAs are involved in the p53 network. Of the various miRNAs, miR-34 is regulated by the p53 protein. miR-34 can be induced by ionizing radiation (IR) in vitro and in vivo. However, there is no data in the literature for(More)
Histone modifications are involved in the DNA damage response (DDR). Here, by utilizing an ELISA immunoassay we assessed the methylation at H3K9 (H3K9me2 and H3K9me3) in two cell lines with differential sensitivity to radiation-induced apoptosis, HeLa (sensitive) and MCF-7 (resistant). We found that DNA damage induction by γ-irradiation leads to(More)
