Researchers identify micro-RNA that targets oncogenic prostaglandin E2 production in lung cancer cell

In a study reported in Oncotarget, researchers have shown that high miR-708 expression is associated with survival rates in lung squamous cell carcinoma patients. miR-708 also represses PGE2 production by suppressing both COX-2 and mPGES-1 expression in lung cancer cells. Moreover, miR-708 decreases proliferation, survival and migration of lung cancer cells, which can be partially […]
