The Multifaceted Role of Heme in Cancer
The Multifaceted Role of Heme in Cancer: Heme, an iron-containing porphyrin, is of vital importance for cells due to its involvement in several biological processes, including oxygen transport, energy production and drug metabolism. Besides these vital functions, heme also bears toxic properties and, therefore, the amount of heme inside the cells must be tightly regulated. Similarly, heme intake from dietary sources is strictly controlled to meet body requirements. The multifaceted nature of heme...

miR-20b-5p, TGFBR2, and E2F1 Form a Regulatory Loop to Participate in Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition in Prostate Cancer
miR-20b-5p, TGFBR2, and E2F1 Form a Regulatory Loop to Participate in Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition in Prostate Cancer: The transcription factor E2F1 regulates the expression of the miR-20b-5p precursor and is involved in epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) induces EMT in prostate cancer (PCa) by binding to TGF-beta receptor 2 (TGFBR2) to activate TGF-β signaling. However, the relationship between TGFBR2, E2F1, and miR-20b-5p in the modulation...

MiR-155 aggravates impaired autophagy of pancreatic acinar cells through targeting Rictor: AbstractThe aim of this study was to investigate the role and mechanism of miR-155 in regulating autophagy in a caerulein-induced acute pancreatitis (AP) cellular model. GFP-LC3 immunofluorescence assay was performed to detect autophagy vesicle formation in pancreatic acinar cell line AR42J. AR42J cells were transfected with miR-155 mimic, inhibitor, and corresponding controls to explore the effect of miR-155...

Downregulating integrin subunit alpha 7 (ITGA7) promotes proliferation, invasion, and migration of papillary thyroid carcinoma cells through regulating epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition
Downregulating integrin subunit alpha 7 (ITGA7) promotes proliferation, invasion, and migration of papillary thyroid carcinoma cells through regulating epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition: AbstractThyroid cancer is one of the common malignancies of the endocrine system and the number of thyroid cancer cases is increasing constantly. Significant work has focused on the molecular mechanisms of thyroid cancer, but many mechanisms remain undiscovered. In this study, we employed a comprehensive analysis...

Pediatric white epidermoid cyst
A rare case of a pediatric white epidermoid cyst: AbstractWhite epidermoid cysts are a rare entity that present with atypical signal characteristics on MRI in comparison to typical epidermoid cysts. This can mislead a practitioner when trying to formulate a differential diagnosis based on imaging. We present the case of 15-year-old girl who presented with a pontine-medullar junction mass. This mass did not follow typical signal characteristics for known lesions. The mass was ultimately found to be...

The rolling cyst: migrating intraventricular neurocysticercosis—a case-based update
The rolling cyst: migrating intraventricular neurocysticercosis—a case-based update: AbstractBackgroundNeurocysticercosis is the most frequent parasitic disease of the central nervous system, and its incidence in the developed countries is increasing due to immigration and travels from endemic areas. The intraventricular location has been found to involve up to 61.3% of the patients; moreover, only 22 cases of migrating intraventricular cyst have been reported so far. Despite the rarity of the condition...
