miR-491 regulates glioma cells proliferation by targeting TRIM28 in vitro.
 

Author(s): Zengxin Qi, Shengyong Cai, Jiajun Cai, Lingchao Chen, Yu Yao, Liang Chen, Ying Mao

Journal:

 

MicroRNAs are significantly involved in tumorigenesis and progression of glioma. However, the critical part they play in glioma have not been fully elaborated. miR-491 and Tripartite motif containing 28 (TRIM28) are reported to aberrantly express in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). ...

Searching for anti-glioma activity. Ribonucleoside analogues with modifications in nucleobase and sugar moieties.
 

Author(s): Grzegorz Framski, Dariusz Wawrzyniak, Zofia Jahnz-Wechmann, Agnieszka Szymanska-Michalak, Adam Kraszewski, Jan Barciszewski, Jerzy Boryski, Jacek Stawinski

Journal: Acta Biochim. Pol.. 2016 ;63(4):765-771.

 

Several ribonucleoside analogues with modifications in the nucleobase and sugar moiety have been screened for anti-glioma activity in the T98G glioma cell line using cervical (HeLa) cell line as reference human malignant cells, and lung fibroblast (MCR-5) cell line as non-cancerous ...

Characterization of Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycan-positive Recycling Endosomes Isolated from Glioma Cells.
 

Author(s): Katarzyna A Podyma-Inoue, Takuya Moriwaki, Anupama R Rajapakshe, Kazue Terasawa, Miki Hara-Yokoyama

Journal: Cancer Genomics Proteomics. ;13(6):443-452.

 

Heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs)-dependent endocytic events have been involved in glioma progression. Thus, comprehensive understanding of the intracellular trafficking complexes formed in presence of HSPGs would be important for development of glioma treatments.

Treatment of Adult Lower-Grade Glioma in the Era of Genomic Medicine.
 

Author(s): Susan M Chang, Daniel P Cahill, Kenneth D Aldape, Minesh P Mehta

Journal: Am Soc Clin Oncol Educ Book. 2016 ;35():75-81.

 

By convention, gliomas are histopathologically classified into four grades by the World Health Organization (WHO) legacy criteria, in which increasing grade is associated with worse prognosis and grades also are subtyped by presumed cell of origin. This classification has prognostic ...

Targeting autophagy to sensitive glioma to temozolomide treatment.
 

Author(s): Yuanliang Yan, Zhijie Xu, Shuang Dai, Long Qian, Lunquan Sun, Zhicheng Gong

Journal:

 

Temozolomide (TMZ), an alkylating agent, is widely used for treating primary and recurrent high-grade gliomas. However, the efficacy of TMZ is often limited by the development of resistance. Recently, studies have found that TMZ treatment could induce autophagy, which contributes ...
