Summary of "Upregulation of circular RNA circ_0034642 indicates unfavorable prognosis in glioma and facilitates cell proliferation and invasion via the miR-1205/BATF3 axis."

Accumulating studies demonstrate the critical role of circular RNAs (circRNAs) in the pathogenesis of various types of cancers. Previously, hsa_circ_0034642 has been found elevated in glioma tissues compared with the normal tissues, as proved by high-throughput microarray. We further investigated its expression level in 52 paired tissues and different glioma cell lines by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. In addition, Fisher's exact test, Kaplan-Meier curves, and Cox analyses were performed to elucidate the clinical significance of hsa_circ_0034642. For the part of functional assays, gain/loss-of-function assays were conducted to measure cell growth, apoptosis, and metastatic properties affected by hsa_circ_0034642. Furthermore, the mechanisms of hsa_circ_0034642 were investigated by dual-luciferase reporter assays. As the results demonstrated, hsa_circ_0034642 was boosted in glioma tissues and cells. Overexpression of hsa_circ_0034642 was associated with clinical severity and poor prognosis. What is more, elevated hsa_circ_0034642 strikingly facilitated cell proliferation, migratory and invasive capacities, and decreased apoptotic cells. Mechanistically, hsa_circ_0034642 sponges miR-1205. miR-1205 regulates BATF3 level through targeting its 3'-untranslated region. In summary, hsa_circ_0034642 might play a key role in this malignancy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The removal of a circular disk of the cranium. It is performed with a trephine, a small circular saw with a center pin mounted on a hollow metal shaft to which is attached a transverse handle. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)

Any of the covalently closed DNA molecules found in bacteria, many viruses, mitochondria, plastids, and plasmids. Small, polydisperse circular DNA's have also been observed in a number of eukaryotic organisms and are suggested to have homology with chromosomal DNA and the capacity to be inserted into, and excised from, chromosomal DNA. It is a fragment of DNA formed by a process of looping out and deletion, containing a constant region of the mu heavy chain and the 3'-part of the mu switch region. Circular DNA is a normal product of rearrangement among gene segments encoding the variable regions of immunoglobulin light and heavy chains, as well as the T-cell receptor. (Riger et al., Glossary of Genetics, 5th ed & Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Area in an environment in which a population of organisms can survive through a period of unfavorable conditions.

One of two ganglionated neural networks which together form the ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM. The myenteric (Auerbach's) plexus is located between the longitudinal and circular muscle layers of the gut. Its neurons project to the circular muscle, to other myenteric ganglia, to submucosal ganglia, or directly to the epithelium, and play an important role in regulating and patterning gut motility. (From FASEB J 1989;3:127-38)

The probability that an event will occur. It encompasses a variety of measures of the probability of a generally unfavorable outcome.
