Abstract

Temozolomide (TMZ) is commonly used for glioma chemotherapy. However, TMZ resistance limits the therapeutic effect of TMZ in glioma treatment. LncRNA-H19 acts as an oncogenic LncRNA in some types of cancers and has been reported to be up-regulated in glioma. In our present study, we established TMZ-resistant glioma cells (U-251TMZ and M059JTMZ) to explore the effect of H19 on the chemoresistance of glioma cells. We observed that the expression of H19 was significantly increased in U-251TMZ and M059JTMZ cells. Knockdown of H19 expression using specific shRNA in U-251TMZ and M059JTMZ led to decreased half maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) values for TMZ and increased cell apoptosis rates, indicating that the silencing of H19 decreased chemoresistance of glioma cells to TMZ. In addition, silencing of H19 suppressed epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) by increasing the expression of epithelial marker E-cadherin and decreasing the expression of mesenchymal marker Vimentin and ZEB1. Moreover, inducing EMT by TGF-β1 treatment led to increased IC50 values for TMZ and decreased cell apoptosis rates compared with TMZ+H19 shRNA group, suggesting that the induction of EMT counteracted the inhibitory effect of H19 shRNA on chemoresistance of glioma cells to TMZ. Furthermore, the reduced expression of H19 down-regulated the expression of β-Catenin and its downstream targets c-myc and Survivin in TMZ-treated glioma cells. Activation of Wnt/β-Catenin pathway by Licl treatment promoted EMT and enhanced chemoresistance to TMZ compared with TMZ+H19 shRNA group. Taken together, our data suggest that H19 decreased chemoresistance of glioma cells to TMZ by suppressing EMT via the inhibition of Wnt/β-Catenin pathway. Our study might represent a novel therapeutic target for TMZ-resistant glioma.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 February 2018.
All research outputs
#11,073,832
of 12,455,224 outputs
Outputs from OncoTargets and therapy
#1,041
of 1,543 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#287,103
of 339,369 outputs
Outputs of similar age from OncoTargets and therapy
#84
of 132 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,455,224 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,543 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 339,369 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 132 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
