Recent studies have shown that microRNAs, a class of small and noncoding RNA molecules, play crucial roles in the initiation and progression of pancreatic cancer. In the present study, the expression and roles of miR-191 were investigated. Through both gain-of function and loss-of function experiments, a pro-oncogenic function of miR-191 was demonstrated.(More)
This study aimed to investigate the effects of astragaloside IV (AS-IV; 3-O-β-D-xylopyranosyl-6-O‑β-D-glucopyranosylcycloastragenol), which has been reported to have comprehensive pharmacological functions, on sodium taurocholate (NaTc)/L-arginine (L-Arg)-induced acute pancreatitis (AP) in rats in vivo and in rat pancreatic acinar cells in vitro.(More)
To identify transcription factors (TFs) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of Lrh1 (also named Nr5a2) and its homologous genes in Lrh1-knockout pancreas of mice. The RNA-Seq data GSE34030 were downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database, including 2 Lrh1 pancreas knockout samples and 2 wild type samples. All reads were processed through(More)
