    Objective To investigate the long non-coding RNA lnc-p26090 expression level in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) tissues and cell lines. To explore the effect of lnc-p26090 on OSCC cells glycolysis and proliferation.Methods Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) was used to detect the relative expression level of lnc-p26090 in OSCC tissues and cell lines. Then we searched the UCSC and LNCipedia websites to obtain the chromosome location and protein coding capacity of lnc-p26090. Moreover, we transfected the plasmid into HEK 293T cell to confirm the protein coding capacity of lnc-p26090. After silencing lnc-p26090 in OSCC cell lines, we detected the glucose consumption, lactic acid production and expression level of glycolysis related genes. Furthermore, cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8) assay, flow cytometry and western blot were performed to examine the effect of lnc-p26090 on proli-feration and cell cycle distribution.Results lnc-p26090 was highly expressed both in OSCC tissues and cell lines. lnc-p26090 located in chro-mosome 2p11.2, without protein coding capacity. Silencing lnc-p26090 significantly repressed the glucose consumption, lactic acid production of cells. Moreover, the expression level of glycolysis related genes: pyruvate kinase M2, phosphofructokinase M, hexokinase 2, glucose transporter 1 and lactate dehydrogenase A were decreased after lnc- p26090 knockdown in cells. Furthermore, when downregulating lnc-p26090 in cells, proliferation was inhibited, and cell-cycle was blocked in G1 phase. At the meanwhile, cyclin D1 and cyclin-dependent kinase 4 expression level was decreased and p21 was increased significantly.Conclusion lnc-p26090, which located in chromosome 2p11.2, was upregulated in OSCC tissues and cell lines. It could be involved in the glycolysis and proliferation of OSCC.

    Abstract ( 855 )   HTML ( 19 )   PDF(pc) (3454KB) ( 494 )   Save

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a series of noncoding single-stranded RNA molecules encoded by endogenous genes that affect post-transcriptional gene regulation. Aberrant expression of miRNA involved in oral squamous cell carcinomas is related to tumour growth, cellular apoptosis, invasion, metastasis, radiosensitivity and chemosensitivity. Such aberrant expression regulates target genes or signalling pathways and can potentially be applied to clinic as a kind of biomarker in early diagnosis and prognosis. Accordingly, this review generalizes the association between ectopic miRNA and oral squamous cell carcinoma. Simultaneously, it summarizes the axis, namely, miRNA-target gene/downstream-signaling pathway-tumorous effect, and forecasts the prospect of clinical application.

    Because all necessary treatments can be completed during a single visit, dental general anesthesia (DGA) has been accepted by most doctors and parents in foreign countries. Since the application of DGA in China, an increasing number of parents have chosen or accepted this technique to solve children’s dental problems. Rational utilization of DGA in children can prevent pain and negative emotions during treatment, increase treatment efficiency, and improve quality of life. However, many parents still do not accept DGA and eventually give up dental treatment for their children due to their lack of knowledge about general anesthetics, leading to treatment delays and deterioration of their children’s oral health. This article mainly summarizes the status of parental acceptance of treatment under DGA, the factors affecting parental acceptance of DGA, and the cognitive mistakes of parents in children’s DGA.
