MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous noncoding RNAs that downregulate gene expression by inhibiting translation or promoting mRNA degradation. Although over one-third of miRNAs are located within the intronic regions of transcription units, the expression of such "intron-derived" (or "intronic") miRNAs and their relationship with their host gene remain a(More)
Angiogenesis, a key factor in ischemic heart disease, is rapidly initiated in response to hypoxic or ischemic conditions. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenously expressed small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression at post-transcriptional level. The recent discovery of the involvement of these RNAs in the control of angiogenesis renders them very(More)
The present study was designed to investigate whether microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in atrioventricular block (AVB) in the setting of myocardial ischemia (MI). A cardiac-specific miR-1 transgenic (Tg) mouse model was successfully established for the first time in this study using microinjection. miR-1 level was measured by real-time qRT-PCR. Whole-cell(More)
Most intronic micro-RNAs are coexpressed with their host genes, suggesting that they may play similar roles. The function of miR-483 remains unknown, although it is embedded in an intron of Igf2 gene, which is an activator of hepatocellular carcinoma proliferation. In the present study, we provide evidence that Igf2-derived miR-483 can induce proliferation(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of peripheral nerve invasion (PNI) with clinicopathological factors and prognosis of colorectal cancer. METHODS Clinicopathological data and Surgical specimens of 372 colorectal cancer patients who underwent radical resection from January 2011 to June 2012 in The Second Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical(More)
