MicroRNA-21 regulates expression of the PTEN tumor suppressor gene in human hepatocellular cancer.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS microRNAs (miRNAs) are short noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression negatively. Although a role for aberrant miRNA expression in cancer has been postulated, theExpand

Essential metabolic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumorigenic functions of miR-122 in liver.
miR-122, an abundant liver-specific microRNA (miRNA), regulates cholesterol metabolism and promotes hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication. Reduced miR-122 expression in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)Expand

MicroRNA-221/222 Confers Tamoxifen Resistance in Breast Cancer by Targeting p27Kip1*♦
We explored the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in acquiring resistance to tamoxifen, a drug successfully used to treat women with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. miRNA microarray analysis ofExpand

Downregulation of miR‐122 in the rodent and human hepatocellular carcinomas
MicroRNAs (miRs) are conserved small non‐coding RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression. The miR profiles are markedly altered in cancers and some of them have a causal role in tumorigenesis.Expand

5-Aza-Deoxycytidine Induces Selective Degradation of DNA Methyltransferase 1 by a Proteasomal Pathway That Requires the KEN Box, Bromo-Adjacent Homology Domain, and Nuclear Localization Signal
ABSTRACT 5-Azacytidine- and 5-aza-deoxycytidine (5-aza-CdR)-mediated reactivation of tumor suppressor genes silenced by promoter methylation has provided an alternate approach in cancer therapy.Expand

A new class of quinoline-based DNA hypomethylating agents reactivates tumor suppressor genes by blocking DNA methyltransferase 1 activity and inducing its degradation.
Reactivation of silenced tumor suppressor genes by 5-azacytidine (Vidaza) and its congener 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine (decitabine) has provided an alternate approach to cancer therapy. We have shownExpand

Methylation mediated silencing of MicroRNA-1 gene and its role in hepatocellular carcinogenesis.
MicroRNAs (miR) are a class of small ( approximately 21 nucleotide) noncoding RNAs that, in general, negatively regulate gene expression. Some miRs harboring CGIs undergo methylation-mediatedExpand

Role of microRNA‐155 at early stages of hepatocarcinogenesis induced by choline‐deficient and amino acid–defined diet in C57BL/6 mice
MicroRNAs (miRs) are conserved, small (20‐25 nucleotide) noncoding RNAs that negatively regulate expression of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) at the posttranscriptional level. Aberrant expression of certainExpand

Role of Human Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) Promoter Methylation and of Methyl-CpG-binding Protein MBD2 in the Suppression of rRNA Gene Expression*
The methylation status of the CpG island located within the ribosomal RNA (rRNA) promoter in human hepatocellular carcinomas and pair-matched liver tissues was analyzed by bisulfite genomicExpand

Low levels of miR‐92b/96 induce PRMT5 translation and H3R8/H4R3 methylation in mantle cell lymphoma
Protein arginine methyltransferase PRMT5 interacts with human SWI/SNF complexes and methylates histones H3R8 and H4R3. To elucidate the role of PRMT5 in human cancer, we analyzed PRMT5 expression inExpand
