Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for approximately 80% of lung cancer cases. Recently, microRNAs (miRNAs) have been consistently demonstrated to be involved in NSCLC and to act as either tumor oncogenes or tumor suppressors. In this study, we identified a specific(More)
In eukaryotes, miR-16 is an important microRNA (miRNA) that is involved in numerous biological processes. However, it is not fully understood how miR-16 executes its physiological functions. In the present study, we aimed to identify novel miR-16 targets and study their biological functions. Candidate target genes of miR-16 were screened by microarray(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary sarcoma of bone, and it is a leading cause of cancer death among adolescents and young adults. However, the molecular mechanism underlying osteosarcoma carcinogenesis remains poorly understood. Recently, cyclin-dependent kinase 6 (CDK6) was identified as an important oncogene. We found that CDK6 protein level, rather(More)
The major environmental determinants of honeybee caste development come from larval nutrients: royal jelly stimulates the differentiation of larvae into queens, whereas beebread leads to worker bee fate. However, these determinants are not fully characterized. Here we report that plant RNAs, particularly miRNAs, which are more enriched in beebread than in(More)
