Abstract Share this page

Diabetes mellitus as a heterogeneous disease along with hyperglycemia causes quite many acute and chronic complications including cardiovascular complication. Cardiovascular complications are caused because of numerous factors such as increased Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS), Triglyceride (TG), hypercholesterolemia, hypercoagulable state and a change in balancing lipoproteins including Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) and High Density Lipoproteins (HDL). Because of probable role of HDL in prevention of cardiovascular complications and its antithrombotic role in diabetics, we have studied lipoproteins and HDL in particular, effect on coagulation parameters which may potentially lead to cardiovascular complications in type 2 diabetics. In this study, 60 type 2 diabetics in early stage of diabetes were compared statistically with 50 healthy subjects in terms of biochemical factors of: FBS, TG, VLDL, LDL, coagulation parameters of: Partial thromboplastin time (PT), Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT), specific activity of coagulation factors and then the correlation between the biochemical and coagulation parameters was measured using Pearson’s correlation coefficient. Our findings showed that FBS, TG, VLDL and coagulation factors of: II, IX, X, XI in diabetics had increased significantly compared with healthy subjects. They also indicated that APTT and therefore, the intrinsic coagulation pathway in diabetics prolonged in comparison with the healthy individuals. There were no other significant differences in the measured parameters between two groups. On the other hand, by studying biochemical and coagulation factors, it was shown that there was a positive significant correlation among FBS, cholesterol and HDL with the coagulation factors of II, V, IX, X, XI. There was, interestingly, a negative significant correlation between HDL and APTT. The observed correlation between coagulation factors and HDL, regardless of the no significant difference of HDL in the two groups, shows that probably the hypercoagulable state as a result of hyperglycemia led to plasma increase of HDL. In other words, HDL, probably, because of hypercoagulable state, intended to remove their destructive effects of hypercoagulable state and then correlated with them.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
