We aimed to explore the interaction among lncRNA MALAT1, miR-129 and SOX2. Besides, we would investigate the effect of MALAT1 on the proliferation of glioma stem cells and glioma tumorigenesis. Differentially expressed lncRNAs in glioma cells and glioma stem cells were screened out with microarray analysis. The targeting relationship between miR-129 and MALAT1 or SOX2 was validated by dual-luciferase reporter assay. The expressions of MALAT1, miR-129 and SOX2mRNA in both glioma non-stem cells and glioma stem cells were examined by qRT-PCR assay. The impact of MALAT1 and miR-129 on glioma stem cell proliferation was observed by CCK-8 assay, EdU assay and sphere formation assay. The protein expression of SOX2 was determined by western blot. The effects of MALAT1 and miR-129 on glioma tumour growth were further confirmed using xenograft mouse model. The mRNA expression of MALAT1 was significantly up-regulated in glioma stem cells compared with non-stem cells, while miR-129 was significantly down-regulated in glioma stem cells. MALAT1 knockdown inhibited glioma stem cell proliferation via miR-129 enhancement. Meanwhile, miR-129 directly targeted at SOX2 and suppressed cell viability and proliferation of glioma stem cells by suppressing SOX2 expression. The down-regulation of MALAT1 and miR-129 overexpression both suppressed glioma tumour growth via SOX2 expression promotion in vivo. MALAT1 enhanced glioma stem cell viability and proliferation abilities and promoted glioma tumorigenesis through suppressing miR-129 and facilitating SOX2 expressions.

Mounting evidence shows that the long non-coding RNA MALAT1 plays a pivotal role in tumorigenesis and metastasis, but the functional significance of MALAT1 in bladder transitional cell carcinoma (BTCC...
LncRNAs are involved in various biological processes and disorders. We aimed to investigate the role of lncRNA MALAT1 deregulation in the pathogenic mechanism of diabetic cataract (DC).
The increasing vital roles of long coding RNA (lncRNAs) in the glioma tumorigenesis have renewedly and roundly recognized. Nevertheless, the in-depth that lncRNAs modulate the gliomagenesis is still e...
Long noncoding RNAs (LncRNAs) have been reported to participate in cancer development, including osteosarcoma. Here, in our study, we observed that lncRNA metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma tra...

This drug is being developed to treat a type of brain cancer, glioma. This study was developed to evaluate the safety, time to disease progression and survival rates after treatment.
Currently, treatment with a specific anti-epileptic drug mainly depends on the physicians' preference, as there are no studiessupporting the use of one specific anticonvulsant in glioma pa...

Phase IIa Safety and Light Dose-Escalation Study in Patients With Primary or Recurrent/High-Grade Glioma Using the Litx™ System to Confirm the Zone of Tumor Destruction During the Intraoperative Treatment of Glioma
The pupose of this study is to demonstrate the safety of the Litx™ therapy and confirm the zone of tumor destruction with escalated light doses following intraoperative treatment of prim...
The rotational force about an axis that is equal to the product of a force times the distance from the axis where the force is applied.
A malignant neoplasm that may be classified either as a glioma or as a primitive neuroectodermal tumor of childhood (see NEUROECTODERMAL TUMOR, PRIMITIVE). The tumor occurs most frequently in the first decade of life with the most typical location being the cerebellar vermis. Histologic features include a high degree of cellularity, frequent mitotic figures, and a tendency for the cells to organize into sheets or form rosettes. Medulloblastoma have a high propensity to spread throughout the craniospinal intradural axis. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2060-1)

A DNA microarray or biochip is a collection of microscopic DNA spots attached to a solid surface used to measure the expression levels of large numbers of genes simultaneously or to genotype multiple regions of a genome.
An assay is an analytic procedure for qualitatively assessing or quantitatively measuring the presence or amount or the functional activity of a target entity. This can be a drug or biochemical substance or a cell in an organism or organic sample. ...
