2、RNPC1 inhibits non-small cell lung cancer progression via regulating miR-181a/CASC2 axi

摘要:To study the roles and mechanisms of RNA binding protein RNPC1 in non-small cell lung cancer progression.RNPC1 and long non-coding RNA CASC2 expression levels were significantly downregulated in lung cancer tissues compared with normal adjacent tissues, and their expression levels were positively correlated. Functionally, overexpression of RNPC1 or CASC2 inhibited non-small cell lung cancer cells proliferation, migration and invasion, and promoted cells apoptosis. Mechanistically, RNPC1 was found to harbor binding sites on CASC2 and directly bound to CASC2, and increased CASC2 mRNA stability and expression. Notably, the promotive effects of RNPC1 on CASC2 expression were attenuated by miR-181a overexpression. Moreover, CASC2 3′UTR with mutated miR-181a binding sites did not respond to RNPC1 alteration. Finally, the inhibitory effects of RNPC1 overexpression were attenuated or even reversed by CASC2 knockdown or miR-181a overexpression.RNA bind protein RNPC1 could inhibit non-small cell lung cancer progression by competitively binding to CASC2 with miR-181a.

3、Low-frequency vibrational modes of dl-homocysteic acid and related compound

摘要:In this paper several polycrystalline molecules with sulfonate groups and some of their metal complexes, including dl-homocysteic acid (DLH) and its Sr- and Cu-complexes, pyridine-3-sulphonic acid and its Co- and Ni-complexes, sulfanilic acid and l-cysteic acid were investigated using THz time-domain methods at room temperature. The results of THz absorption spectra show that the molecules have characteristic bands in the region of 0.2-2.7 THz (6-90 cm−1). THz technique can be used to distinguish different molecules with sulfonate groups and to determine the bonding of metal ions and the changes of hydrogen bond networks. In the THz region DLH has three bands: 1.61, 1.93 and 2.02 THz; and 0.85, 1.23 and 1.73 THz for Sr-DLH complex, 1.94 THz for Cu-DLH complex, respectively. The absorption bands of pyridine-3-sulphonic acid are located at 0.81, 1.66 and 2.34 THz; the bands at 0.96, 1.70 and 2.38 THz for its Co-complex, 0.76, 1.26 and 1.87 THz for its Ni-complex. Sulphanilic acid has three bands: 0.97, 1.46 and 2.05 THz; and the absorption bands of l-cysteic acid are at 0.82, 1.62, 1.87 and 2.07 THz, respectively. The THz absorption spectra after complexation are different from the ligands, which indicate the bonding of metal ions and the changes of hydrogen bond networks. M-O and other vibrations appear in the FIR region for those metal-ligand complexes. The bands in the THz region were assigned to the rocking, torsion, rotation, wagging and other modes of different groups in the molecules. Preliminary assignments of the bands were carried out using Gaussian program calculation.

4、Trim9 Regulates Activity-Dependent Fine-Scale Topography in Drosophila

摘要:Topographic projection of afferent terminals into 2D maps in the CNS is a general strategy used by the nervous system to encode the locations of sensory stimuli. In vertebrates, it is known that although guidance cues are critical for establishing a coarse topographic map, neural activity directs fine-scale topography between adjacent afferent terminals [1-4]. However, the molecular mechanism underlying activity-dependent regulation of fine-scale topography is poorly understood. Molecular analysis of the spatial relationship between adjacent afferent terminals requires reliable localization of the presynaptic terminals of single neurons as well as genetic manipulations with single-cell resolution in vivo. Although both requirements can potentially be met in Drosophila melanogaster [5, 6], no activity-dependent topographic system has been identified in flies [7]. Here we report a topographic system that is shaped by neuronal activity in Drosophila. With this system, we found that topographic separation of the presynaptic terminals of adjacent nociceptive neurons requires different levels of Trim9, an evolutionarily conserved signaling molecule [8-11]. Neural activity regulates Trim9 protein levels to direct fine-scale topography of sensory afferents. This study offers both a novel mechanism by which neural activity directs fine-scale topography of axon terminals and a new system to study this process at single-neuron resolution.• Nociceptive afferents in Drosophila larva form fine-scale topography • Neural activity regulates larval nociceptive topography • Trim9 directs the fine-scale topography of larval nociceptive afferents • Neural activity regulates Trim9 expression to direct fine-scale topographyThe segregation of presynaptic terminals of same-type neurons is important for topographic projections of sensory afferents. Yang et al. report that nociceptive afferents in Drosophila larva form fine-scale topography. In this system, neural activity regulates Trim9 protein levels to direct fine-scale topography.
