Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant and common brain tumor; it is aggressive growth pattern means that GBM patients face a poor prognosis even when receiving the best available treatment modalities. In recent years, an increasing number of reports suggest that the discovery of microRNAs (miRNAs) might provide a novel therapeutic target for(More)
Radioresistance remains a major challenge in the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Recent data strongly suggests the important role of miRNAs in cancer progression and therapeutic response. Here, we have established a radioresistant human GBM cell line U87R derived from parental U87 and found miR-135b expression was upregulated in U87R cells.(More)
Mood stabilizer valproic acid (VPA), a widely used antiepileptic drug that has been demonstrated neuroprotective effect against various insults through multiple signaling pathways. The role of VPA in traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains unclear. In the present study, we investigated the neuroprotective potency of VPA for protection against TBI in adult(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common primary brain cancer in adults, is usually the most lethal type of brain tumor. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small, non-coding RNA molecules that deeply involves with the regulation of gene expression and cellular processes, including proliferation, apoptosis, migration and invasion. The objective of the(More)
