• Interfering with long non-coding RNA MIR22HG processing inhibits glioblastoma progression through suppression of Wnt/β-catenin signalling 

      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 ...
    • Loss of COPZ1 induces NCOA4 mediated autophagy and ferroptosis in glioblastoma cell lines 

      Zhang, Yulin; Kong, Yang; Ma, Yuan; Ni, Shilei; Wikerholmen, Tobias Espedal; Xi, Kaiyan; Zhao, Feihu; Zhao, Zhimin; Wang, Junpeng; Huang, Bin; Chen, Anjing; Yao, Zhong; Han, Mingzhi; Feng, Zichao; Hu, Yaotian; Thorsen, Frits; Wang, Jiang; Li, Xingang (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Dysregulated iron metabolism is a hallmark of many cancers, including glioblastoma (GBM). However, its role in tumor progression remains unclear. Herein, we identified coatomer protein complex subunit zeta 1 (COPZ1) as a ...
    • Melatonin enhances proliferation and modulates differentiation of neural stem cells via autophagy in hyperglycemia 

      Li, Haoyuan; Zhang, Yanming; Liu, Shangming; Li, Fengpeng; Wang, Benlin; Wang, Jianjie; Cao, Lanfang; Xia, Tongliang; Yao, Qingyu; Chen, Haijun; Zhang, Yulin; Zhu, Xiaodong; Li, Yang; Li, Gang; Wang, Jian; Li, Xingang; Ni, Shilei (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-01)
      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 ...
