Article: [A new natural polyphenol BJA32531 inhibited the proliferation and regulated miRNA expression in human HepG2 hepatocarcinoma cells].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study the effect of 1,2,6-Tri-O-galloyl-beta-D-glucopyranose (BJA32531) on the miRNA expression during BJA32531-induced cytotoxicity in human HepG2 hepatocarcinoma cells. Cell proliferation was assessed using a colorimetric assay (cell counting kit-8). Apoptosis was assessed by annexin V and propidium iodide staining. The miRNA expression profile of the cancer cells was analyzed by a miRNA array and quantitative real-time PCR. BJA32531 inhibited the cell proliferation and increased apoptosis in HepG2 cancer cells. Cellular exposure to BJA32531 influenced the miRNA expression pattern in the cells, including 19 upregulated and 85 down-regulated miRNAs in the cells. The up-regulations of let-7a and miR-10b as well as the down-regulations of miR-132 and miR-125b were verified to be consistent with the the results of the miRNA array. Our study suggests that the mechanisms by which BJA32531 exerted the antiproliferative effects on HepG2 cancer cells may be related to its regulation of miRNA.Zhong yao cai = Zhongyaocai = Journal of Chinese medicinal materials 11/2011; 34(11):1734-40.
Article: 1,3,4-tri-O-galloyl-6-O-caffeoyl-β-D-glucopyranose, a new anti-proliferative ellagitannin, regulates the expression of microRNAs in HepG(2) cancer cells.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. 1, 3, 4-tri-O-galloyl-6-O-caffeoyl-β-D-glucopyranose (BJA32515) is a new natural ellagitannin compound extracted from Balanophora Japonica MAKINO. The effect of BJA32515 on the expression of miRNAs in cancer cells has not yet been explored. Objective The present study was carried out to examine the changes in miRNA expression profiles in human HepG(2) hepatocarcinoma cells following BJA32515 exposure. The proliferation of BJA32515-exposed HepG(2) cells was assessed using a colorimetric assay (cell counting kit-8). The miRNA expression profile of the cancer cells was analyzed using a miRNA array and quantitative real-time PCR. Apoptosis was assessed by annexin V and propidium iodide staining. BJA32515 inhibited the cell proliferation and increased apoptosis in HepG(2) cancer cells. The exposure to BJA32515 also caused alterations in the miRNA expression profile in the cells, with 33 miRNAs upregulated and 59 down-regulated. The up-regulation of let-7a and miR-29a and the down-regulation of miR-373 and miR-197 were verified by quantitative real-time PCR. CONCLSION: BJA32515-modifed miRNA expression may mediate the antiproliferative effect of this compound in HepG(2) cancer cells.Nan fang yi ke da xue xue bao = Journal of Southern Medical University 10/2011; 31(10):1641-8.
