Since microRNAs invariably seem to suppress the expression of their putative targets, miR-31 may target an unknown transcript which in turn negatively regulates the expression of Bim under constitutive condition. [score:12]
Therefore, our study confirms beyond doubt that miR-31 overexpression mediates Bax -dependent cell death through indirect induction of Bim overexpression by suppressing an intermediate gene/protein. [score:8]
In order to confirm whether overexpression of Sf-miR-31 has a functional role in the induction of radiation -induced Sf9 cell death, its expression was suppressed using antisense RNA prior to irradiation, and alteration in cell death induction was studied using morphological scoring (necrotic/apoptotic cells), flow cytometry (sub-G1 population) as well as by caspase-3 activity. [score:7]
Quite important, radiation -induced overexpression of Sf-miR-31 at doses >1,000Gy resulted in significant inhibition (p < 0.05) of cell death when it was inhibited/compromised using antisense miR-31 (AS-miR-31) (Fig. 3). [score:7]
Inhibition of Sf-miR-31 using antisense significantly inhibited Bax translocation induced by high doses, which implied an apparently indirect regulation of Bax -mediated processes by miR-31 (Fig. 5c,a). [score:7]
Importantly, miR-31 mimic -induced apoptosis also involved the upregulation of Bim expression (Fig. 7e). [score:6]
Following this, our results showing upregulation of miR-31 in cells irradiated at lethal doses indeed indicated its mediatory role in apoptosis, which was consequently confirmed by significant alteration (inhibition) of cell death by the ectopically administered AS-miR-31(*P < 0.05, **P < 0.02) (Fig. 3). [score:6]
We are presently looking for these putative targets of miR-31 that could be regulating Bim expression. [score:6]
Pro-apoptotic role of miR-31 is further clear from the fact that at sub-lethal doses (<500Gy), its expression was significantly downregulated (Fig. 2c). [score:6]
As shown in Fig. 6c,d, treatment with AS-miR-31 indeed caused inhibition of radiation -induced Bim overexpression and Bim/Bax interaction, confirming miR-31’s role in regulating Bim-Bax pathway. [score:6]
Interestingly, the Sf-miR-31 expression was significantly downregulated at these sub-lethal doses (p < 0.05). [score:6]
Interestingly, this study also implies that miR-31 downregulation could result in enhanced cellular radioresistance, since sub-lethal radiation doses were associated with considerable reduction in its expression level. [score:6]
Therefore, Bim upregulation may be consequently induced through miR-31 overexpression in different stress responses. [score:6]
Suppression of Sf-miR-31 inhibits radiation -induced cell death. [score:5]
A nearly four-fold increase in miR-31 expression was sufficient to cause ~20% increase in apoptotic cell death, which was essentially mediated through Bim overexpression, Bax translocation and cytochrome-c release into cytosol (Fig. 7). [score:5]
Since radiation induced significant overexpression of miR-31 which in turn mediated Bim-Bax pathway, we further confirmed the pro-apoptotic role of miR-31 by ectopically enhancing its expression in the unirradiated cells. [score:5]
Since AS-miR-31 was able to significantly inhibit the induction of Bax translocation as well as apoptosis, we tested if radiation -induced Bim overexpression is also altered in this condition. [score:5]
Radiation -induced miR-31 overexpression enhances Bim expression as well as its interaction with Bax. [score:5]
We further found that this radiation -induced Bim-Bax interaction is effectively inhibited by AS-miR-31, and so is the radiation -induced Bim overexpression (Fig. 6c,d). [score:5]

As miRNA functions could be evolutionarily conserved between species such as B. mori and D. melanogaster 43, we used Flybase IDs of identified targets for the GO term clustering using Panther and Cytoscape 44 (Bingo) tools for the functional analysis of Sf-miR-31. [score:3]
On the other hand, a dose -dependent increase in caspase-3 activation and cell death marked by typical apoptotic bodies (Fig. 2a,b) was evident by 24 h following irradiation at higher doses (1,000Gy–3,000 Gy), which was associated with a concomitant increase in the expression of Sf-miR-31 (p < 0.002; Fig. 2c). [score:3]
Ectopic overexpression of Sf-miR-31 using miR-31 mimic sequence induced significant cell death in a Bim-Bax dependent manner. [score:3]
Lethal doses also caused release of cytochrome-c from mitochondria into cytosol following irradiation at 1,000Gy–3,000Gy and inhibiting Sf-miR-31 resulted in its partial but significant reduction (Fig. 5c). [score:3]
