Long noncoding RNA GAS5 suppresses the migration and invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma cells via miR-21
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are aberrantly expressed in various cancers. Although lncRNA GAS5 (growth arrest-specific transcript 5) has been characterized as a tumor suppressor in some kinds ofExpand

Metatranscriptome of an Anaerobic Benzene-Degrading, Nitrate-Reducing Enrichment Culture Reveals Involvement of Carboxylation in Benzene Ring Activation
ABSTRACT The enzymes involved in the initial steps of anaerobic benzene catabolism are not known. To try to elucidate this critical step, a metatranscriptomic analysis was conducted to compare theExpand

STAT3-regulated exosomal miR-21 promotes angiogenesis and is involved in neoplastic processes of transformed human bronchial epithelial cells.
Although microRNA (miRNA) enclosed in exosomes can mediate intercellular communication, the roles of exosomal miRNA and angiogenesis in lung cancer remain unclear. We investigated functions ofExpand

The lncRNA MALAT1, acting through HIF-1α stabilization, enhances arsenite-induced glycolysis in human hepatic L-02 cells.
Accelerated glycolysis, a common process in tumor cells called the Warburg effect, is associated with various biological phenomena. However, the role of glycolysis induced by arsenite, aExpand

A MALAT1/HIF-2α feedback loop contributes to arsenite carcinogenesis
Arsenic is well established as a human carcinogen, but the molecular mechanisms leading to arsenic-induced carcinogenesis are complex and elusive. It is also not known if lncRNAs are involved inExpand
