      Han, Mingzhi; Wang, Shuai; Fritah, Sabrina; Wang, Xu; Zhou, Wenjing; Yang, Ning; Ni, Shilei; Huang, Bin; Chen, Anjing; Li, Gang; Miletic, Hrvoje; Thorsen, Frits; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Li, Xingang; Wang, Jian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Long non-coding RNAs play critical roles in tumour progression. Through analysis of publicly available genomic datasets, we found that MIR22HG, the host gene of microRNAs miR-22-3p and miR-22-5p, is ranked among the most ...
    • Melatonin enhances proliferation and modulates differentiation of neural stem cells via autophagy in hyperglycemia

      Dysfunction of neural stem cells (NSCs) has been linked to fetal neuropathy, one of the most devastating complications of gestational diabetes. Several studies have demonstrated that melatonin (Mel) exerted neuroprotective ...
    • Therapeutic implications of altered cholesterol homeostasis mediated by loss of CYP46A1 in human glioblastoma 

      Han, Mingzhi; Wang, Shuai; Yang, Ning; Wang, Xu; Zhao, Wenbo; Sdik Saed, Halala; Daubon, Thomas; Huang, Bin; Chen, Anjing; Li, Gang; Miletic, Hrvoje; Thorsen, Frits; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Li, Xingang; Wang, Jian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-11-28)
      Dysregulated cholesterol metabolism is a hallmark of many cancers, including glioblastoma (GBM), but its role in disease progression is not well understood. Here, we identified cholesterol 24‐hydroxylase (CYP46A1), a ...
