Extracellular vesicles, including exosomes, are currently being investigated to better understand their biogenesis and biological functions. There is also a rapidly growing interest in utilizing exosomes present in patient biofluids for molecular diagnostics in the clinic. Exosomes are natural shuttles of RNA and protein cargo, making them attractive as potential therapeutic delivery vehicles. In a […]

Region-specific gene expression is an intriguing feature of the mammalian epididymis. This unique property is essential for sperm maturation and storage, and it also implicates stringent and multi-level regulations of gene expression. Over the past decade, the androgen-driven activation of epididymal gene transcription has been extensively studied. However, whether and how other regulatory mechanisms, such […]

oridonin
Oridonin, an ingredient used in traditional Chinese medicine, has been demonstrated to play an important role in antitumour effects, but the mechanism underlying its antitumour properties is still not clear. To verify the anti-cancer effects of oridonin via a miRNA-dependent mechanism, comprehensive miRNA expression profiling of oridonin-treated BxPC-3 human pancreatic cancer cells was performed using […]

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a highly prevalent neurodegenerative disease that imposes a prodigious burden on society. Docosahexaenoic acids (DHAs) are known to be beneficial in AD, in part, through their anti-inflammatory properties and microRNAs (miRs) are important regulators of brain functions and this regulation becomes disrupted in AD. The purpose of a recent paper published […]

The objectives of a recent study published by researchers from Clemson University were to detect differentially expressed (DE) microRNAs (miRNAs) due to PRRSV infection in sperm cells and seminal plasma and to perform functional enrichment analyses on predicted targets of these miRNAs. In their study, animal work was performed at the Swine Veterinary Center (Saint […]
