MicroRNAs (miRNAs) pair with target sequences in the 3' untranslated region of mRNAs to posttranscriptionally repress gene expression. In this study, we report that TNF-mediated induction of endothelial adhesion molecules can be regulated by miRNAs that are induced by TNF. Specifically, E-selectin and ICAM-1 are targets of TNF-induced miRNAs miR-31 and miR-17-3p, respectively. Specific antagonism of these TNF-induced miRNAs increased neutrophil adhesion to cultured endothelial cells. Conversely, transfections with mimics of these miRNAs decreased neutrophil adhesion to endothelial cells. These data suggest that miRNAs provide negative feedback control of inflammation.

    • "MiR-31 was also demonstrated to modulate the progression of inflammatory bowel disease via directly targeting hypoxia inducible factor I [18]. Su arez et al. confirmed that miR-31 feedback regulated the inflammation response by regulating E-selectin and neutrophil binding to endothelial cells [19]. Nonetheless, the "

    ABSTRACT: MiR-31 is a critical regulator of gene expression in many pathogenic processes in vertebrates. In this study, we identified p105 as a novel target of miR-31 in Apostichopus japonicus and investigated their regulatory roles in vitro and in vivo. The negative expression profiles between miR-31 and Ajp105 were detected in both LPS-exposed primary coelomocytes and Vibrio splendidus-challenged sea cucumber. Co-infection miR-31 mimics significantly depressed the expression of Ajp105 and increased ROS production in vitro. In contrast, miR-31 inhibitor significantly elevated the expression of Ajp105 and decreased ROS level. Consistently, miR-31 over-expression or Ajp105 silencing in vivo both greatly promoted ROS accumulation. Taken together, our findings confirmed that miR-31 could modulate respiratory burst via targeting Ajp105 during sea cucumber pathological development. Copyright © 2015. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

    • "Several microRNAs are induced in response to inflammatory stimuli in human monocytes (Taganov et al., 2006; Bazzoni et al., 2009) and ECs (Suarez et al., 2010; Cheng et al., 2013). Interestingly, the NF-κB-dependent induction of miR-146a plays a critical role in attenuating NF-κB signaling. "

    ABSTRACT: Cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis are one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide.The clinical manifestations of atherosclerosis, which include heart attack and stroke, occur several decades after initiation of the disease and become more severe with age. Inflammation of blood vessels plays a prominent role in atherogenesis. Activation of the endothelium by inflammatory mediators leads to the recruitment of circulating inflammatory cells, which drives atherosclerotic plaque formation and pro-gression. Inflammatory signaling within the endothelium is driven predominantly by the pro-inflammatory transcription factor, NF-κB. Interestingly, activation of NF-κB is enhanced during the normal aging process and this may contribute to the development of cardio-vascular disease. Importantly, studies utilizing mouse models of vascular inflammation and atherosclerosis are uncovering a network of noncoding RNAs, particularly microRNAs, which impinge on the NF-κB signaling pathway. Here we summarize the literature regarding the control of vascular inflammation by microRNAs, and provide insight into how these microRNA-based pathways might be harnessed for therapeutic treatment of disease. We also discuss emerging areas of endothelial cell biology, including the involvement of long noncoding RNAs and circulating microRNAs in the control of vascular inflammation.

    • "In mice, but not humans, P-selectin transcription is induced as well (Pan et al. 1998). TNF also induces miRs that feedback and limit E-selectin and ICAM-1 expression (Suarez et al. 2010). TNF and IL-1 also induce synthesis of chemokines, notably of IL-8 and MCP-1, the principal human chemokines that activate neutrophils and monocytes, respectively. "

    ABSTRACT: Acute and chronic inflammation is associated with changes in microvascular form and function. At rest, endothelial cells maintain a nonthrombogenic, nonreactive surface at the interface between blood and tissue. However, on activation by proinflammatory mediators, the endothelium becomes a major participant in the generation of the inflammatory response. These functions of endothelium are modified by the other cell populations of the microvessel wall, namely pericytes, and smooth muscle cells. This article reviews recent advances in understanding the roles played by microvessels in inflammation.
