Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process is considered as a key event in the activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). Hedgehog (Hh) pathway is known to be required for EMT process. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to be involved in a wide range of biological processes. Plasmacytoma variant translocation 1 (PVT1), a novel lncRNA, is often up-regulated in various human cancers. However, the role of PVT1 in liver fibrosis remains undefined. In this study, PVT1 was…

MicroRNA-30a Suppresses the Activation of Hepatic Stellate Cells by Inhibiting Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition

The results suggest that miR-30a inhibits EMT process, at least in part, via reduction of Snai1, leading to the suppression of HSC activation in liver fibrosis.

The long noncoding RNA PVT1 functions as a competing endogenous RNA by sponging miR-186 in gastric cancer.

Regulatory long non-coding RNAs of hepatic stellate cells in liver fibrosis (Review)

The present review highlighted the current knowledge on the role of lncRNAs in activating or inhibiting LF, revealing lnc RNAs that are likely to be biomarkers or therapeutic targets for LF.

Long noncoding RNA PVT1-214 promotes proliferation and invasion of colorectal cancer by stabilizing Lin28 and interacting with miR-128

The findings support a model in which the PVT1-214/Lin28/let-7 axis serves as a critical regulator of CRC pathogenesis, which may simulate a new direction for CRC therapeutic development.

Upregulation of the long non-coding RNA PVT1 promotes esophageal squamous cell carcinoma progression by acting as a molecular sponge of miR-203 and LASP1

It is shown that PVT1 expression is significantly up-regulated in ESCC tumor samples compared with their normal counterparts and the first evidence of dysregulated PVT 1/miR-203/LASP1 axis in ES CC is provided.

The Roles and Mechanisms of lncRNAs in Liver Fibrosis

A review of the functions and mechanisms of lncRNAs, the lncRNA transcriptome profile of liver fibrosis, and the main lnc RNAs involved in the signalling pathways that regulate hepatic fibrosis provides insight into the screening of therapeutic and diagnostic markers of Liver fibrosis.

Long noncoding RNA XIST enhances ethanol‐induced hepatic stellate cells autophagy and activation via miR‐29b/HMGB1 axis

In vivo assay showed that downregulation of XIST by LV‐sh‐XIST alleviated ALF injury in ALF model mice, and collectively, XIST enhances ethanol‐induced HSCs autophagy and activation via miR‐29b/HMGB1 axis.

Salvianolic acid B-induced microRNA-152 inhibits liver fibrosis by attenuating DNMT1-mediated Patched1 methylation

It is demonstrated that the antifibrotic effects caused by Sal B were, at least in part, via inhibition of EMT and the Hh pathway, resulting in the inhibition of the EMT in liver fibrosis.

The lncRNA H19 promotes epithelial to mesenchymal transition by functioning as miRNA sponges in colorectal cancer

It is implied that the lncRNA H19 modulated the expression of multiple genes involved in EMT by acting as a competing endogenous RNA, which may build up the missing link between the regulatory miRNA network and EMT progression.

This study demonstrates that the expression of many lncRNAs is up‐regulated in early liver development and that the fetal liver can be used to search for new diagnostic markers for HCC.

Long Non-coding RNA Growth Arrest-specific Transcript 5 (GAS5) Inhibits Liver Fibrogenesis through a Mechanism of Competing Endogenous RNA*

A new regulatory circuitry in liver fibrosis has been identified in which RNAs cross-talk by competing for shared microRNAs and GAS5 increased the level of p27 protein by functioning as a competing endogenous RNA for miR-222, thereby inhibiting the activation and proliferation of HSCs.

Epigenetic modifications in hepatic stellate cells contribute to liver fibrosis.

The vital epigenetic modifications of fibrosis-related genes in HSCs are summarized, and specific nucleic acid sequences and structures in gene promoters as important action sites are highlighted, which may provide indicators for liver fibrosis diagnosis in the future.
