Abstract

Background

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a serious malignant cancer. The treatment effect of ESCC is relatively poor and needs further improvement. According to reports, circular RNAs (circRNAs) actively participate in human carcinogenesis. More explorations are needed about the action of circRNAs in ESCC.

Methods

Circ_0024108, miR-488-3p, and USP14 was quantified by a qRT-PCR or immunoblotting method. Cell proliferation evaluation was performed by MTT, EdU, and colony formation assays. Evaluation of cell motility and invasiveness was conducted using wound healing assay and transwell assay. The regulatory mechanism of circ_0024108, miR-488-3p, and USP14 was detected by RNA pull-down assay and dual-luciferase reporter assay.

Results

Circ_0024108 and USP14 were significantly overexpressed in ESCC, while miR-488-3p was underexpressed. Deficiency of circ_0024108 impeded cell growth, motility, and invasiveness. Circ_0024108 regulated the expression of USP14 in ESCC cells via miR-488-3p. Also, circ_0024108 was present at high levels in serum exosomes from ESCC patients with high specificity and sensitivity.

Conclusions

Taken together, circ_0024108 participated in the progress of ESCC through the miR-488-3p/USP14 axis. Circ_0024108 was differentially expressed in serum exosomes. Circ_0024108 might be a potential biomarker for the diagnosis of ESCC.

S3-Leitlinie „Diagnostik und Therapie des Karpaltunnelsyndroms“

CME: 2 Punkte

Prof. Dr. med. Gregor Antoniadis Das Karpaltunnelsyndrom ist die häufigste Kompressionsneuropathie peripherer Nerven. Obwohl die Anamnese mit dem nächtlichen Einschlafen der Hand (Brachialgia parästhetica nocturna) sehr typisch ist, ist eine klinisch-neurologische Untersuchung und Elektroneurografie in manchen Fällen auch eine Neurosonografie erforderlich. Im Anfangsstadium sind konservative Maßnahmen (Handgelenksschiene, Ergotherapie) empfehlenswert. Bei nicht Ansprechen der konservativen Therapie oder Auftreten von neurologischen Ausfällen ist eine Dekompression des N. medianus am Karpaltunnel indiziert.

S2e-Leitlinie „Distale Radiusfraktur“

CME: 2 Punkte

Dr. med. Benjamin Meyknecht, PD Dr. med. Oliver Pieske Das Webinar S2e-Leitlinie „Distale Radiusfraktur“ beschäftigt sich mit Fragen und Antworten zu Diagnostik und Klassifikation sowie Möglichkeiten des Ausschlusses von Zusatzverletzungen. Die Referenten erläutern, welche Frakturen konservativ behandelt werden können und wie. Das Webinar beantwortet die Frage nach aktuellen operativen Therapiekonzepten: Welcher Zugang, welches Osteosynthesematerial? Auf was muss bei der Nachbehandlung der distalen Radiusfraktur geachtet werden?
