LncRNA MIR31HG is induced by tocilizumab and ameliorates rheumatoid arthritis fibroblast-like synoviocyte-mediated inflammation via miR-214-PTEN-AKT signaling pathway

The effects of lncRNA MIR31HG on RA-FLS-mediated inflammation. (A) The effects of tocilizumab on endogenous expression of MIR31HG in RA-FLS (n=3). (B–E) MIR31HG knockdown affects proliferation, metastasis, and production of inflammatory molecules and MMPs in RA-FLS (n=3). (F–J) RA-FLS with reduced MIR31HG expression regulates primary macrophages and chondrocytes (n=3). Data represent the mean ± SEM; *p t-test.

(BE) MIR31HG knockdown affects proliferation, metastasis, and production of inflammatory molecules and MMPs in RA-FLS (n=3). (FJ) RA-FLS with reduced MIR31HG expression regulates primary macrophages and chondrocytes (n=3). Data represent the mean ± SEM; *p < 0.05, Student’s t-test.
