Summary of "circGprc5a Promoted Bladder Oncogenesis and Metastasis through Gprc5a-Targeting Peptide."

Bladder cancer is a serious cancer in the world, especially in advanced countries. Bladder cancer stem cells (CSCs) drive bladder tumorigenesis and metastasis. Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are involved in many biological processes, but their roles in bladder oncogenesis and bladder CSCs are unclear. Here, we identified that circGprc5a is upregulated in bladder tumors and CSCs. circGpr5a knockdown impairs the self-renewal and metastasis of bladder CSCs, and its overexpression exerts an opposite role. circGpr5a has peptide-coding potential and functions through a peptide-dependent manner. circGprc5a-peptide binds to Gprc5a, a surface protein highly expressed in bladder CSCs. Gprc5a knockout inhibits the bladder CSC self-renewal and metastasis. circGprc5a-peptide-Gprc5a can be utilized to target bladder cancer and bladder CSCs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.

Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.

An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.

A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.

Blocked urine flow through the bladder neck, the narrow internal urethral opening at the base of the URINARY BLADDER. Narrowing or strictures of the URETHRA can be congenital or acquired. It is often observed in males with enlarged PROSTATE glands.
