Detail of MEG3
ncRNA name MEG3
ncRNA Category lncRNA
Ensembl NA
Synonyms NA
Disease name diabetic retinopathy (DR)
Species Macaca mulatta
Tissues/Cell_line rhesus choroid-retinal endothelial cell line RF/6A
Methods qRT-PCR, transwell assay, siRNA transfection, Western blot and ELISA, PI/ Calcein-AM staining, Hoechst staining, immunofluorescence
Expression pattern down-regulated
Functional description MEG3 knockdown aggravates retinal vessel dysfunction in vivo, as shown by serious capillary degeneration, and increased microvascular leakage and inflammation. MEG3 knockdown also regulates retinal endothelial cell proliferation, migration, and tube formation in vitro. The role of MEG3 in endothelial cell function is mainly mediated by the activation of PI3k/Akt signaling.
