This study suggests that SNHG15 binds to miR‐18b‐5p to modulate LMO4, thereby affecting cell proliferation, migration, invasion and apoptosis of liver cancer.
Ursolic acid is a naturally occurring pentacyclic triterpene acid present in several edible herbs and fruits. Hypobaric hypoxia induced muscle protein loss attributed to multifaceted pathways, included oxidative stress, inflammation and protein degradation. Supplementation of ursolic acid attenuated hypobaric hypoxia induced oxidative damage, inflammation, enhanced Akt, pAkt and p70S6kinase activity and antioxidant status in the skeletal muscle. Conclusively, ursolic acid showed potent antioxidant, anti‐inflammatory activity and enhanced the protein content via upregulation of Akt pathway related proteins. These three biological activities makes ursolic acid a novel candidate for amelioration of hypobaric hypoxia induced skeletal muscle damage and protein loss.

Did you know? Wiley and Jisc just signed an agreement that allows UK authors to publish Open Access in the IUBMB Journals at no cost to them.
Thanks to a partnership our publisher Wiley has signed with Jisc, certain UK institutions now have full access to journals published by Wiley, including the IUBMB Journals. Further, the partnership enables authors at participating UK institutions to publish open access at no cost to them in the IUBMB Journals. Payment of the associated Article Publication Charges (APC) would be covered via the partnership, and authors will not need to cover the APCs from their own pockets.
Submit your research to the IUBMB Journals today.
