AB  - Objectives/Hypothesis: To establish comprehensive transcriptomic profiles of cholesteatoma perimatrix tissue and granulation tissue from chronic otitis media (COM) that did not develop cholesteatoma, which can indicate molecular pathways involved in the cholesteatoma perimatrix pathology and invasiveness. Study Design: Retrospective Case Series. Methods: Transcriptome data were obtained from cholesteatoma perimatrix tissue and COM granulation tissue by an Illumina iScan microarray. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were subsequently analyzed using both bioinformatical functional annotation and network analysis. Expression of candidate genes (MMP9 and LCN2) was validated by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) on a larger group of samples. Results: Analysis of the transcriptome led to the identification of 169 differentially expressed genes between investigated tissues. Bioinformatic analysis suggested that most significant biological processes involving DEGs were previously described in cholesteatoma pathology. Network analysis identified ERBB2, TFAP2A, and TP63 as major hubs of the DEGs molecular network. Furthermore, it was observed that the cellular component most significantly enriched in DEGs was extracellular space containing 47 DEGs. Using qRT-PCR, it was confirmed that mRNA levels of the major extracellular hub (MMP9) are increased, whereas its interacting molecule (LCN2) mRNA levels were decreased in cholesteatoma perimatrix tissue compared to COM granulation tissue. Conclusions: The current study approach offers an overall look at molecular mechanisms that describe the cholesteatoma entity by focusing exclusively on the perimatrix processes in comparison to COM granulation tissue. The observed differences in gene expression between cholesteatoma perimatrix and COM granulation tissue could suggest novel markers potentially influenced by the perimatrix–matrix molecular interplay, which is not present in COM without cholesteatoma.

AB  - Leptin (LEP) may contribute to the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS) by its immunomodulatory, proinflammatory and prooxidant effects. Therefore, plasma LEP levels and mRNA expression of five genes related to the LEP signaling pathway (LEP, LEP receptor (LEPR), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma coactivator 1-alpha (PGC1A), superoxide dismutase 2, tumor necrosis factor-alpha) were investigated in relapsing-remitting MS. In patients (N = 64), compared to healthy subjects (N = 62), relative LEP mRNA levels were significantly increased (p = 0,01), while LEPR and PGC1A mRNA levels were decreased (p = 0,001 and p = 0,04, respectively). Significant positive correlation was observed between LEPR mRNA levels and clinical parameters of MS progression (EDSS, MSSS). © 2019

Global DNA Methylation as a Potential Underlying Mechanism of Congenital Disease Development

AB  - During the last decade, quantitative measurement of the methylation status in white blood cells (WBCs) has been used as a potential biomarker in a variety of diseases. Long interspersed nucleotide element-1 (LINE-1) has been used widely as a surrogate marker of global DNA methylation. Altered maternal DNA methylation is suggested to be an underlying mechanism in the trisomy 21 and the development of birth defects, including congenital heart defects (CHDs). The molecular mechanisms that underlie the epigenetic regulation of gene transcription are independent of DNA sequence, but they do depend on environmental stimuli, which are especially important in fetal development in utero environment. Folic acid deficiency and genetic variations of folate pathway genes, such as the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (MTHFR), are foremost among these maternal risk factors. Also, there are exogenous risk factors (cigarette smoking, alcohol intake, medication use, periconceptional maternal supplementation, body mass index, and dietary habits) with impact on maternal LINE-1 methylation. MTHFR C677T genotype/diet and other environmental factors as significant predictors of LINE-1 DNA methylation in regard to congenital diseases will be discussed in the chapter.

AB  - Harmful effects of fructose-rich diet (FRD) were predominantly observed in males, suggesting protective effects of estrogens. Little is known about AMPK/sirtuin-1 (SIRT1)/forkhead box O3 (FoxO3a)/manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD)/catalase signaling in the heart in state of metabolic syndrome and oxidative stress induced by fructose over-consumption. We investigated the effect of 10% FRD on expression of AMPK-SIRT1-FoxO3a-MnSOD/catalase axis in myocardium and potentially beneficial effect of 17β-estradiol replacement. The expression of NADPH oxidase 4 (Nox4) and miRNA-155, unfavorable regulators of this axis, were also investigated. FRD significantly increased AMPK and decreased FoxO3a activity, decreased SIRT1, MnSOD and Nox4 protein expression while E2 reverted these changes, except for Nox4, and increased catalase protein level. E2 diminished Nox4 and MnSOD mRNA level in FRD ovariectomized rats. These results suggest independent response of AMPK and SIRT to FRD treatment. The proposed signaling in the heart should be further investigated in the prooxidative and antioxidative milieu.

AB  - Background: Chromosomal region 9p21.3 is most robustly associated with coronary artery disease (CAD) in western European populations. However, heterogeneity in CAD phenotypes leads to uncertainty whether 9p21.3 is associated with stable and/or acute clinical presentations of CAD. 9p21.3 is rich in regulatory elements, but the underlying mechanisms of its actions in CAD remain unclear. We investigate the association of 9p21.3 two haplotype blocks lead variants (rs10757278 and rs518394) with first-ever non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI) in CAD patients and their association with CDKN2B mRNA expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells 6 months after the event. Methods: We included CAD patients with sustained first MI (n = 523) and controls (n = 583). Gene expression was assessed in 72 patients 6 months after MI and 43 healthy controls. TaqMan® technology was used for the gene expression and genotyping analysis. Results: CDKN2B mRNA was significantly lower in MI patients compared with the controls (p = 0.002) and in patients carrying the rs10757278 G risk allele versus AA homozygotes (p = 0.012) 6 months after the event. While we confirmed the association of rs10757278 with CDKN2B expression in MI patients, we failed to find an association between the investigated variants and MI or disease burden. Conclusions: We suggest a dysregulation of gene expression in the 9p21.3 region six months after acute MI, which is affected by a genetic variant in patients. The rs10757278 rare allele is one factor that might lead to prolonged risk for proatherogenic complications. © 2019 The Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists

AB  - Aim: It was the aim of the study to identify commonly deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer patients by performing a meta-analysis of previously published miRNA expression profiles in cancer and matched normal non-cancerous tissue in such patients. Material and methods: Meta-analysis included seven independent studies analyzed by a vote-counting method followed by bioinformatic enrichment analysis. Results: Amongst seven independent studies included in the meta-analysis, 20 miRNAs were found to be deregulated in oral cancer when compared with non-cancerous tissue. Eleven miRNAs were consistently up-regulated in three or more studies (miR-21-5p, miR-31-5p, miR-135b-5p, miR-31-3p, miR-93-5p, miR-34b-5p, miR-424-5p, miR-18a-5p, miR-455-3p, miR-450a-5p, miR-21-3p), and nine were down-regulated (miR-139-5p, miR-30a-3p, miR-376c-3p, miR-885-5p, miR-375, miR-486-5p, miR-411-5p, miR-133a-3p, miR-30a-5p). The meta-signature of identified miRNAs was functionally characterized by KEGG enrichment analysis. Twenty-four KEGG pathways were significantly enriched, and TGF-beta signaling was the most enriched signaling pathway. The highest number of meta-signature miRNAs was involved in the sphingolipid signaling pathway. Natural killer cell-mediated cytotoxicity was the pathway with most genes regulated by identified miRNAs.

Conclusions: The identified miRNA meta-signature might be considered as a potential battery of biomarkers when distinguishing oral cancer tissue from normal, non-cancerous tissue. Further mechanistic studies are warranted in order to confirm and fully elucidate the role of deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer.

AB  - The 9p21.3 region is rich in regulatory elements and the variants in this region had been robustly associated with carotid plaque (CP) and coronary artery disease (CAD). Recently, the HACD4 was detected as one of the six 9p21.3 differentially expressed genes associated with accelerated atherosclerosis and greater mean lesion area in the Athsq1 congenic mice. We aimed to investigate association of two potentially regulatory HACD4 variants (rs36212560 I/D, rs2275888 T/C) and their haplotypes with CP occurrence and the level of HACD4 and FOCAD mRNA in human CP tissue. Association study was replicated in CAD patients who suffered the first myocardial infarction. Study included 477 CP patients, 303 healthy controls and replication sample of 224 CAD males from the population of Serbia. Genotypes were determined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and real-time PCR using TaqMan (R) technology. The gene expression was detected with TaqMan (R) technology. We have found significant and independent association of DT haplotype with CP presence in men (adjusted OR = 1.64 CI = 1.12-2.42, p = 0.011). The result was replicated in CAD males (adjusted OR = 1.84 CI = 1.21-2.80, p = 0.004). We have found significant effect of the HACD4 rs2275888 on FOCAD mRNA level in human CP tissue. Correction for multiple testing was performed. Independent association of HACD4 haplotypes with atherosclerotic phenotypes connotes a further validation and replication in larger cohorts as well as functional studies to enlighten the potential mechanism of its action in pathophysiology of atherosclerosis.

AB  - Aims: (1) to identify the most dysregulated genes in ureter tissue affected by congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) and to extract the biological meaning of these markers; (2) to describe the key molecular networks in CAKUT and to provide expression validation of the genes selected from these networks. Main methods: Transcriptome data was obtained from ureter samples of CAKUT patients and controls by Illumina iScan microarray. Identification of differentially expressed genes was coupled with subsequent bioinformatics analyses. Expression of candidate genes was validated by qRT-PCR. Key findings: Analysis of the transcriptome led to the identification of 78 commonly dysregulated genes in CAKUT tissue compared to controls. Integrative bioinformatic analyses of differentially expressed genes identified 7 major networks. The targets for qRT-PCR validation were selected as members of the major molecular networks in CAKUT, which had both, the significant high fold change and biological relevance for CAKUT. By qRT-PCR the substantial increase of LCN2, PROM1, SOSTDC1, and decrease of INA, RASD1 and TAC3 mRNA levels was confirmed. Significance: Since CAKUT is a leading cause of end-stage renal disease in children, the search for molecular targets for postnatal therapy is of particular interest. Data described in this study represents the gene expression profile and significant molecular networks specific to human ureter affected by CAKUT. The discovery of impaired molecular factors and processes is the step towards the uncovering of the key mechanisms that reflect CAKUT postnatally and could lead to the affected tissue deterioration and end organ damage. © 2018 Elsevier Inc.

AB  - Objectives. Chronic otitis media (COM) is followed by irreversible tissue damage and destruction of the middle ear structures, with the possibility of complications under the maintenance of inflammation. Inflammatory mediators such as cytokines play a crucial role in the initial stage of inflammation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of the polymorphisms in two innate immunity/inflammation cascade genes from interleukin-1 (IL-1) gene cluster with COM with regard to cholesteatoma. Methods. In the cross-sectional case-control study, DNA samples were collected from 189 patients with COM and 119 controls from a population of Serbia. The +3953 C/T (rs1143634), TaqI polymorphism in interleukin-1 beta (IL-1Β) gene and 86 bp variable number tandem repeat (VNTR, rs2234663) polymorphism in the IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA) gene were analyzed by polymerase chain reaction. Results. The IL-1Β TaqI polymorphism was not significantly different in patients compared with the control group. The significant difference between patients and controls was observed for both, genotype and allele frequencies of IL-1RA VNTR polymorphism (chi-square P<0.01). We found that carriers of IL-1RA allele 2 (odds ratio, 0.47; 95% confidence interval, 0.29 to 0.76; P=0.004) have a favorable association with COM, using multivariate logistic analysis that included both polymorphisms, age and sex. The IL-1RA allele frequency distribution was significantly different with regard to cholesteatoma. Conclusion. The carriers of allele 2 of VNTR IL-1RA polymorphism had a decreased odds ratio for COM, which is in agreement with findings in other inflammatory disease and its previous association with higher IL-1RA levels. Possible down-regulation of IL-1 mediated proinflammatory signaling pathways via IL-1RA in COM as well as results of our study should be further investigated and replicated.

AB  - The adipose tissue renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is proposed to be a pathophysiological link between adipose tissue dysregulation and metabolic disorders induced by a fructose-rich diet (FRD). RAS can act intracellularly. We hypothesized that adipocyte nuclear membranes possess angiotensin receptor types 1 and 2 (AT1R and AT2R), which couple to nuclear signaling pathways and regulate oxidative gene expression under FRD conditions. We analyzed the effect of consumption of 10% fructose solution for 9 weeks on biochemical parameters, adipocyte morphology, and expression of AT1R, AT2R, AT1R-associated protein (ATRAP), NADPH oxidase 4 (NOX4), matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), and manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) in adipose tissue of Wistar rats. We detected AT1R and AT2R in the nuclear fraction. FRD reduced the level of angiotensin receptors in the nucleus, while increased AT1R and decreased AT2R levels were observed in the plasma membrane. FRD increased the ATRAP mRNA level and decreased MnSOD mRNA and protein levels. No significant differences were observed for MMP-9 and NOX4 mRNA levels. These findings coincided with hyperleptinemia, elevated blood pressure and triglycerides, and unchanged visceral adipose tissue mass and morphology in FRD rats. Besides providing evidence for nuclear localization of angiotensin receptors in visceral adipose tissue, this study demonstrates the different effects of FRD on AT1R expression in different cellular compartments. Elevated blood pressure and decreased antioxidant capacity in visceral fat of fructose-fed rats were accompanied by an increased AT1R level in the plasma membrane, while upregulation of ATRAP and a decrease of nuclear membrane AT1R suggest an increased capacity for attenuation of excessive AT1R signaling and visceral adiposity.

AB  - Increased intake of fructose in humans and laboratory animals is demonstrated to be a risk factor for development of metabolic disorders (insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes) and cardiovascular diseases. On the other hand, estradiol is emphasized as a cardioprotective agent. The main goal of this review is to summarize recent findings on damaging cardiac effects of fructose-rich diet in females, mostly experimental animals, and to evaluate protective capacity of estradiol. Published results of our and other research groups indicate mostly detrimental effects of fructose-rich diet on cardiac insulin signaling molecules, glucose and fatty acid metabolism, nitric oxide production and ion transport, as well as renin-angiotensin system and inflammation. Some of these processes are involved in cardiac insulin signal transmission, others are regulated by insulin or have an influence on insulin action. Administration of estradiol to ovariectomized female rats, exposed to increased intake of fructose, was mostly beneficial to the heart, but sometimes it was ineffective or even detrimental, depending on the particular processes. We believe that these data, carefully translated to human population, could be useful for clinicians dealing with postmenopausal women susceptible to metabolic diseases and hormone replacement therapy.

AB  - Background: The interindividual variability of cyclosporin A (CsA) pharmacokinetics might be explained by heterogeneity in the cytochrome P450 3A (CYP3A) subfamily. Altered CYP3A enzyme activity was associated with variant allele of P450 oxidoreductase gene (POR*28). The aim of this study was to assess the impact of age, CYP3A5*3, CYP3A4*22, and POR*28 alleles on CsA pharmacokinetics in pediatric renal transplant recipients. Methods: Renal transplant patients receiving CsA (n = 47) were genotyped for CYP3A5*3, CYP3A4*22, and POR*28. Results: CYP3A5 nonexpressers had higher overall dose-adjusted predose concentration (C0/dose; ng/mL per mg/kg) compared with expressers (31.48 +/- 12.75 versus 22.44 +/- 7.12, P = 0.01). CY-P3A5 nonexpressers carrying POR*28 allele had a lower overall dose-adjusted concentration (C2/dose) than those with POR*1/*1 genotype (165.54 +/- 70.40 versus 210.55 +/- 79.98, P = 0.02), with age as covariate. Children aged 6 years and younger had a lower overall C0/dose (18.82 +/- 4.72 versus 34.19 +/- 11.89, P = 0.001) and C2/dose (106.75 +/- 26.99 versus 209.20 +/- 71.57, P LT 0.001) compared with older children. Carriers of CYP3A5*3 allele aged LT = 6 years required higher dose of CsA and achieved lower C0/dose and C2/dose, at most time points, than older carriers of this allele. Carriers of POR*28 allele aged # 6 years required higher doses of CsA, whereas they achieved lower C0/dose and C2/dose, at most time points, in comparison to older carriers of this allele. The significant effect of age (P LT 0.002) and CYP3A5 variation (P, 0.02) was shown for overall C0/dose, whereas age (P LT 0.00001) and POR variation (P = 0.05) showed significant effect on C2/dose. Regression summary for overall C2/dose in patients aged 6 years younger showed a significant effect of both CYP3A5 and POR variations (P LT 0.016). Conclusions: Younger age, POR*28 allele, and CYP3A5*3 allele were associated with higher CsA dosing requirements and lower concentration/dose ratio. Pretransplant screening of relevant polymorphisms in accordance with age should be considered to adjust therapy.

AB  - Single nucleotide polymorphisms from the chromosome locus 9p21 are reported to carry a risk for various cardiovascular diseases. One of the lead single nucleotide polymorphisms, rs10757278, was mostly investigated in association with coronary artery disease but rarely with carotid atherosclerosis. In this study, we aimed to analyze the association of rs10757278 A/G polymorphism with carotid plaque presence in advanced carotid atherosclerosis. The study included 803 participants, 486 patients with high-grade stenosis ( GT 70%) who were undergoing carotid endarterectomy and 317 controls from Serbian population. Genotypes were determined using the real-time polymerase chain reaction. According to the recessive model of inheritance, GG genotype was significantly and independently associated with carotid plaque in females only (odds ratio 2.42, CI = 1.20-4.90, P = 0.013). Odds ratio was adjusted for age, body mass index, hypertension, TC, LDLC, HDLC and TG, and P value was corrected for multiple comparisons. Our preliminary findings suggest a gender-specific association of rs10757278 polymorphism with carotid plaque. Further studies on larger sample and in genetically and environmentally similar populations are needed.

AB  - BACKGROUND: Breast carcinoma is heterogeneous disease. Understanding the process of invasion and metastasis and the selection of the therapy for patients with breast carcinomas still remains difficult. MicroRNAs are powerful gene expression regulators. Because of inconsistent findings, we have analyzed potential difference in miR-155 levels in three breast cancer groups. OBJECTIVES: Our goals were to examine miR-155 expression levels in normal tissue, non-invasive and invasive breast carcinomas, and their association with standard clinical and pathological parameters and oncomiR-21, and to investigate the ability of miR-155 to separate invasive breast carcinomas with non-invasive component from pure invasive. METHODS: In the group of 40 breast tissue samples, relative expression levels of miR-155 were examined with stem-loop quantitative real-time PCR using TaqMan technology. RESULTS: The significant difference among four examined groups of the breast tissue was detected (p = 0.001). In the group of pure invasive tumors, patients with positive nodal status had significantly higher miR-155 levels (p = 0.046). CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that miR-155 might be involved in breast cancer pathogenesis and in tumor spreading to the lymph nodes, and that it might be used as biomarker for additional stratification of patients with invasive breast carcinomas with non-invasive component.

AB  - Background and Aims: The principal biologic effects of the renin-angiotensin system are mediated by activation of the AT1R receptor. The microRNA miR-155 regulates AT1R expression, with both its, and AT1Rs activity, linked to atherosclerosis. Target sites for miR-155 lie within the 3 UTR of the human AT1R gene, and include the AT1R A1166C polymorphism. Thus far, only levels of circulating miR-155 have been investigated with respect to A1166C genotypes. We hypothesized that the A1166C polymorphism could correlate with different, ultra-sonographically defined plaque phenotypes, as well as with an altered expression of AT1R mRNA and protein in human carotid plaques (CP), and altered expression of miR-155 in patients with advanced atherosclerosis. Methods: Our study cohort comprised 411 patients with advanced carotid atherosclerosis (298 hyperechoic; 113 hypoechoic plaques). PCR analyses identified A1166C genotypes; quantitative real-time PCR determined AT1R and miR-155 expression levels, with AT1R protein expression evaluated by western blot. Results: Genotypes containing the C allele bore a significant association with the hypoechoic plaque phenotype (adjusted OR 1.87, 95% CI 1.16-3.00, p = 0.01). The expression of AT1R mRNA and miR-155 were significantly up-regulated in the CPs of CC genotype carriers compared to the AA/AC genotypes (p = 0.032, p = 0.015, respectively). AT1R protein expression was also significantly higher for CC genotypes (p LT 0.01). Conclusion: Our results indicate that the AT1R A1166C polymorphism impacts an ultrasonographicallydefined human plaque phenotype, with intra-plaque AT1R and miR-155 expression altered in advanced carotid atherosclerosis. Validation and replication of these data should contribute to an improved personalized therapy with which to prevent carotid atherosclerosis. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

AB  - Background: The angiotensin II type 2 receptor (AT2R) - 1332 A/G polymorphism has been denoted as functional and associated with certain cardiovascular disease phenotypes. However, there are no studies considering the association of this gene polymorphism with carotid atherosclerosis (CA) and cerebrovascular events. Therefore, the aim of our study was to investigate a possible association of the AT2R - 1332 A/G polymorphism with the occurrence of carotid plaques (CPs) and history of cerebrovascular insult (CVI) in advanced CA. Methods: The study group included 381 controls and 509 patients with CA consecutively admitted for endarterectomy. Genotyping was determined by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method. The association was analyzed separately for males and females because the AT2R gene is located on the X chromosome. Results: The AT2R - 1332 GG genotype was associated with the advanced CA in the female study group (recessive model of inheritance, AA+AG versus GG; adjusted odds ratio [OR] = 2.25; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.17-4.33; P=.01). In the male subgroup of patients with CA, the significant overrepresentation of G/- hemizygote was detected in patients with CVI compared to male patients without this event (crude OR = 2.05, 95% CI 1.20-3.50, P=.008). Conclusions: This study suggests a gender-specific association between the AT2R -1332 A/G polymorphism and the occurrence of CP and the history of CVI in advanced CA, but further replication studies are needed.

AB  - The components of renin-angiotensin system, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), angiotensin II and angiotensin II receptor type 1 and 2 (AT1R and AT2R), are expressed in the central nervous system and leukocytes and proposed to be involved in the inflammation and pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). ACE I/D, AT1R 1166A/C and AT2R-1332A/G are functional polymorphisms associated with phenotypes of diverse chronic inflammatory diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between ACE I/D, AT1R 1166A/C and AT2R-1332A/G gene polymorphisms and MS in Serbian population. A total of 470 MS patients and 478 controls participated in the study. Allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was performed for genotyping of the ACE polymorphism. The AT1R and AT2R genotyping was done by duplex PCR and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis. Both ACE homozygotes, II and DD, were significantly overrepresented in MS patients, compared to controls (chi(2) test p = 0.03). Neither genotype nor allele frequencies of AT1R 1166A/C polymorphism were significantly different between patients and controls. Significant overrepresentation of AT2R-1332 AA genotype in female patients, compared to female controls, was detected (OR = 1.67, 95%CI = 1.13-2.49, chi(2) test p = 0.01), suggesting that this genotype could be a gender-specific genetic risk factor for MS.

AB  - Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) are the cause for half of the cases with renal failure, but pathophysiological basis of this disease is not fully known. Therefore, the therapy and prevention of the disease is difficult. In this study, by comparing the whole-genome expression in the ureter tissue of patients with CAKUT and healthy controls, 78 differentially expressed genes were identified. By employing bioinformatical analysis it was concluded that there is a high level of complexity of biological processes and molecular pathways, differentialy regulated in CAKUT, whose important interactions can be represented with seven molecular networks, of which four contain genes with functions that can be directly associated with CAKUT. Experimental validation of key networks by qRT-PCR method identified elevated mRNA levels of LCN2 (7.6 fold), PROM1 (8 fold) and SOSTDC1 (5.6 fold), and decreased mRNA levels of RASD1 (4.5 fold), INA (3.3 fold) and TAC3 (6.6 fold) in the ureter tissue of the patients compared to control tissue, which may be molecular markers for CAKUT. These networks display the interactions of key molecules in CAKUT and provide the basis for future functional studies, as well. By applying the method that links microarray gene expression data and prediction of miRNA binding sites from several prediction algorithms, with enhanced resolution, miRNAs with potentialy upregulated expression in CAKUT compared to healthy controls were identified. Validation of key miRNAs by qRT-PCR method identified increased level of miR-144 (5.7 fold) in the ureter tissue of the patients compared to controls, which may be a molecular marker for CAKUT.

AB  - Background: The genetic cause of most congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) cases remains unknown, therefore the novel approaches in searching for the common disease denominators are required. miRs regulate gene expression in humans and therefore have potentially therapeutic and biomarker properties. No studies thus far have attempted to explore the miRs in human CAKUT. We applied a new strategy to identify most specific miRs associated with CAKUT, in pediatric patients. Methods: Data from the whole genome expression, gathered from ureter tissue samples of 19 patients and 7 controls, were used for the bioinformatic prediction of miRs activity in CAKUT. We integrated microarray gene expression data and miR target predictions from multiple prediction algorithms using Co-inertia analysis (CIA) in conjunction with correspondence analysis and between group analysis, to produce a ranked list of miRs associated with CAKUT. The CIA included five different sequence based miR target prediction algorithms and the Co-expression Meta-analysis of miR Targets. For the experimental validation of expression of miRs identified by the CIA we used tissue from 36 CAKUT patients and 9 controls. The results of gene ontology (GO) analysis on co-expressed targets of miRs associated with CAKUT were used for the selection of putative biological processes relevant to CAKUT. Results: We identified 7 miRs with a potential role in CAKUT. The top ranked miRs from miRCos communities 4, 1 and 7 were chosen for experimental validation of expression in CAKUT tissue. The 5.7 fold increase of hsa-miR-144 expression in human tissue from CAKUT patients compared to controls (p = 0.005) was observed. From the GO we selected 7 biological processes that could contribute to CAKUT, which genes are potentially influenced by hsa-miR-144. The hsa-miR-200a, hsa-miR-183 and hsa-miR-375 werent differentially expressed in CAKUT. Conclusions: This study shows that integrative approach applied here was useful in identification of the miRs associated with CAKUT. The hsa-miR-144, first time identified in CAKUT, could be connected with biological processes crucial for normal development of kidney and urinary tract. Further functional analysis must follow to reveal the impact of hsa-miR-144 on CAKUT occurrence.

AB  - Introduction: The cardiovascular renin-angiotensin system (RAS) could be affected by gender and dietary regime. We hypothesized that male rats will be more susceptible to activation of RAS in the heart and aorta, as a response to a fructose-rich diet (FRD). Materials and methods: Both male and female Wistar rats were given a 10% (w/v) fructose solution for 9 weeks. We measured the biochemical parameters, blood pressure (BP) and heart rate. We used Western blot and real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to quantify protein and gene expression. Results: In the male rats, the FRD elevated BP and expression of cardiac angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), while the expression of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) and angiotensin II Type 2 receptor (AT(2)R) were significantly decreased. In female rats, there were no changes in cardiac RAS expression due to FRD. Furthermore, the ACE/AT(1)R axis was overexpressed in the FRD male rats aortae, while only AT(1)R was upregulated in the FRD female rats aortae. ACE2 expression remained unchanged in the aortae of both genders receiving the FRD. Conclusions: The FRD induced gender-specific changes in the expression of the RAS in the heart and aortae of male rats. Further investigations are required in order to get a comprehensive understanding of the underlying mechanisms of gender-specific fructose-induced cardiovascular pathologies.

AB  - The mechanism responsible for trafficking of monocyte-derived macrophages into kidney in the puromycin aminonucleoside model of nephrotic syndrome in rats (PAN-NS), and the significance of this infiltration, remain largely unknown. CXCL10, a chemokine secreted in many T helper type 1 (Th1) inflammatory diseases, exhibits important roles in trafficking of monocytes and activated T cells. We hypothesized that induction of circulating interferon (IFN)- and glomerular tumour necrosis factor (TNF)- during PAN-NS would stimulate the release of CXCL10 by podocytes, leading to infiltration of activated immune cells and greater glomerular injury. We found that serum IFN-, glomerular Cxcl10mRNA and intra- and peri-glomerular macrophage infiltration were induced strongly during the late acute phase of PAN-NS in Wistar rats, but not in nude (Foxn1(rnu/rnu)) rats lacking functional effector T lymphocytes. Wistar rats also developed significantly greater proteinuria than nude rats, which could be abolished by macrophage depletion. Stimulation of cultured podocytes with both IFN- and TNF- markedly induced the expression of Cxcl10mRNA and CXCL10 secretion. Together, these data support our hypothesis that increased circulating IFN- and glomerular TNF- induce synergistically the production and secretion of CXCL10 by podocytes, attracting activated macrophages into kidney tissue. The study also suggests that IFN-, secreted from Th1 lymphocytes, may prime proinflammatory macrophages that consequently aggravate renal injury.

AB  - Objective: Toll-like receptors (TLRs) have a prominent role in inducing innate immune response. It has been suggested that regulation of TLRs is involved in the pathogenesis of chronic otitis media. TLR 2 and TLR 4 polymorphisms were connected with susceptibility to acute otitis and chronic otitis with effusion. The objective of this study was to establish expression of TLR 2 and 4 on middle ear mucosa in different types of chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM), and the influence of gene polymorphisms TLR 2 Arg753Gln and TLR 4 Thr399Ile and Asp299Gly to susceptibility to CSOM. Material and methods: Middle ear mucosa and full blood samples were obtained from 85 patients With chronic suppurative otitis media with and without cholesteatoma. Control group for mucosal TLR expression consisted of 71 samples of middle ear mucosa taken from patients with otosclerosis, and control group for DNA polymorphism consisted of 100 full blood samples in healthy subjects. DNA polymorphism detection was done with restriction fragment length polymorphism in RI PCR. Expression of TLR 2 and 4 was determined with immunohistochemical staining. Results: TLR 2 and TLR 4 expression on the middle ear mucosa was not influenced by age of the patients with chronic otitis media. Incidence of TLR 2 Arg753Gln polymorphism was significantly higher in patients with chronic otitis media, compared to control group. Significant association between TLR 2 Arg753Gln polymorphism and different types of mucosal changes in patients with chronic otitis media was established. TLR 2 and 4 expression on experimental group mucosa was significantly different compared to control group, where there was no expression (p = 0.000). Strong dependence of TLR 2 and TLR 4 expression on middle ear mucosa with different mucosal changes and immunohistochemical activity after staining was detected. Conclusion: Certain polymorphisms in TLR genes could be indicative for susceptibility to chronic otitis media. Expression of TLR 2 and 4 on middle ear mucosa was more dependable on different types of mucosal changes and type of CSOM than on bacteria found in the specimens. This can indicate that the type of mucosal changes are closely correlated with TLRs activity in middle ear. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

AB  - Chemokines and their receptors have become significant factors in atherosclerosis research. CXCL16 is a multifunctional agent located on a separate locus to all other known chemokines and binds only to its unique receptor named CXCR6. As a scavenger receptor, adhesion molecule, and chemokine, it quickly became an interesting target in atherosclerosis research as all its functions have a role in vascular pathology. The investigation of the role of CXCL16 in atherosclerosis, although shown in in vitro studies, animal knockout models, and CXCL16 gene polymorphisms, haplotypes, and circulating levels, still shows puzzling results. Genetic and epigenetic studies have just scratched the surface of research necessary for a better assessment of the significance and perspective of this marker in plaque development and progression. In this review, we will summarize current knowledge about CXCL16 in atherosclerosis. Additionally, we will point out the importance of bioinformatics tools for the detection of potentially new CXCL16 regulatory networks through microRNA activity. This review aims to provide a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms, define more specific biomarkers, and discover new therapeutic targets.
