MicroRNA 28 controls cell proliferation and is down-regulated in B-cell lymphomas


, : MicroRNA 28 controls cell proliferation and is down-regulated in B-cell lymphomas. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 111(22): 8185-8190

Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is a highly aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL), which originates from germinal center (GC) B cells and harbors translocations deregulating v-myc avian myelocytomatosis viral oncogene homolog (MYC). A comparative analysis of microRNAs expressed in normal and malignant GC B cells identified microRNA 28 (miR-28) as significantly down-regulated in BL, as well as in other GC-derived B-NHL. We show that reexpression of miR-28 impairs cell proliferation and clonogenic properties of BL cells by modulating several targets including MAD2 mitotic arrest deficient-like 1, MAD2L1, a component of the spindle checkpoint whose down-regulation is essential in mediating miR-28-induced proliferation arrest, and BCL2-associated athanogene, BAG1, an activator of the ERK pathway. We identify the oncogene MYC as a negative regulator of miR-28 expression, suggesting that its deregulation by chromosomal translocation in BL leads to miR-28 suppression. In addition, we show that miR-28 can inhibit MYC-induced transformation by directly targeting genes up-regulated by MYC. Overall, our data suggest that miR-28 acts as a tumor suppressor in BL and that its repression by MYC contributes to B-cell lymphomagenesis.

To test whether proinsulin pretreatment can increase insulin effects, we studied the glucose lowering effect of insulin given intravenously as a bolus (9 mU/kg) following a two hour infusion of proinsulin (3 micrograms/kg body weight.h) in 11 heal...

The hypothesis that amiloride-sensitive Na+ channels (ENaC) are involved in cell volume regulation was tested. Anisosmotic ND-20 media (ranging from 70 to 450 mosM) were used to superfuse Xenopus oocytes expressing abc-rat ENaC (abc-rENaC). Whole...

Modulation by alkalosis of basal leak Ca-2+ entry and store-depletion-induced Ca-2+ entry was investigated in the vascular endothelial cell line ECV 304. Ca-2+ entry was monitored as the increase in the intracellular free Ca-2+ concentration ((Ca-...
