MicroRNA-216b (miR-216b) has been reported to be downregulated in several tumors, its mechanism is still little-studied in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In the present study, we found that miR-216b was downregulated in HCC, but Ubiquitin-specific peptidase 28 (USP28) was upregulated. In addition, Kaplan-Meier-plotter analysis indicated that liver cancer patients with high miR-216b expression had a longer overall survival, but patients with high USP28 had a shorter overall survival. Further studies showed that overexpression of miR-216b inhibited HCC cell growth, and molecular investigations revealed that miR-216b targeted USP28 and inhibited its expression in HCC cells. In addition, overexpression of miR-216b suppressed the substrates' expression of USP28, for example, c-Myc, and miR-216b overexpression also inhibited Cyclin E expression as well as upregulating p27 expression, both of which were the downstream signals of c-Myc. These results indicated that miR-216b downregulated USP28/c-Myc signaling in HCC cells. Collectively, this study demonstrated that miR-216b/c-Myc axis could be as a potential target for HCC therapy in the future.

A large family of receptor protein-tyrosine kinases that are structurally-related. The name of this family of proteins derives from original protein Eph (now called the EPHA1 RECEPTOR), which was named after the cell line it was first discovered in: Erythropoietin-Producing human Hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. Members of this family have been implicated in regulation of cell-cell interactions involved in nervous system patterning and development.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the KIDNEYS. There are several subtypes including the clear cells, the papillary, the chromophobe, the collecting duct, the spindle cells (sarcomatoid), or mixed cell-type carcinoma.
An autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in a tumor suppressor gene. This syndrome is characterized by abnormal growth of small blood vessels leading to a host of neoplasms. They include HEMANGIOBLASTOMA in the RETINA; CEREBELLUM; and SPINAL CORD; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; pancreatic tumors; and renal cell carcinoma (see CARCINOMA, RENAL CELL). Common clinical signs include HYPERTENSION and neurological dysfunctions.
A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)
