Summary of "A positive feedback loop of miR-30a-5p-WWP1-NF-κB in the regulation of glioma development."

Previous studies demonstrated that miR-30a-5p promotes glioma cell growth and invasion. Furthermore, WWP1 (WW domain containing E3 ubiquitin protein ligase 1) inhibits NF-κB activation that is strongly correlated with gliomagenesis. Using the GEO database and bioinformatics analyses, we identified WWP1 was downregulated in glioma tissues and might be a putative target for miR-30a-5p. Hence, this study aims to explore the interaction among miR-30a-5p, WWP1, and NF-κB and their roles in the regulation of glioma development. We found decreased WWP and increased miR-30a-5p expression and p65 phosphorylation in glioma tissues. Furthermore, WWP1 mRNA level was negatively correlated with miR-30a-5p expression in glioma tissues. Interestingly, miR-30a-5p targeted WWP1 expression. Additionally, NF-κB p65 overexpression increased miR-30a-5p expression through direct binding of NF-κB RelA subunit to the promoter of miR-30a-5p. We also confirmed that WWP1 overexpression decreased phosphorylation of NF-κB p65. Importantly, miR-30a-5p promoted glioma cell proliferation, migration, and invasion via targeting WWP1. Furthermore, NF-κB p65 overexpression inhibited WWP1 expression and promoted glioma cell malignant behaviors via inducing miR-30a-5p transcription. Moreover, WWP1 overexpression decreased miR-30a-5p expression and inhibited glioma cell malignant behaviors via inhibiting NF-κB p65. Our further assay showed that WWP1 inhibited in vivo growth of xenograft tumors of glioma cells, accompanied with a decrease in miR-30-5p expression and phosphorylation of NF-κB p65. In conclusion, there is a "miR-30a-5p-WWP1-NF-κB" positive feedback loop, which plays an important role in regulating glioma development and might provide a potential therapeutic strategy for treating glioma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.

A DNA-binding orphan nuclear receptor that negatively regulates expression of ARNTL TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS and plays a role as a regulatory component of the circadian clock system. The Nr1d1 nuclear receptor expression is cyclically-regulated by a feedback loop involving its positive regulation by CLOCK PROTEIN; BMAL1 PROTEIN heterodimers and its negative regulation by CRYPTOCHROME and PERIOD PROTEINS.

Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain-containing proteins that contain intrinsic HISTONE ACETYLTRANSFERASE activity and play important roles in CIRCADIAN RHYTHM regulation. Clock proteins combine with Arntl proteins to form heterodimeric transcription factors that are specific for E-BOX ELEMENTS and stimulate the transcription of several E-box genes that are involved in cyclical regulation. This transcriptional activation also sets into motion a time-dependent feedback loop which in turn down-regulates the expression of clock proteins.
