摘要：Apoptosis of vascular endothelial cells (VEC) is the main form of vascular injury that is closely linked to numerous cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, it is important to find new factors that can suppress VEC apoptosis. By using long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) microarray analysis, we found a new read-through lncRNA, MROH7-TTC4, which acted as an apoptosis inhibitor in VECs. Furthermore, by using the inhibitor (ABO) of annexin A7 (ANXA7) GTPase, we discovered that ANXA7 translocated into nucleus and interacted with 5 '-> 3 ' exoribonuclease (XRN2). The decreased XRN2 phosphorylation induced by ANXA7 GTPase activity inhibition, promoted MROH7-TTC4 expression. Moreover, T-cell intracellular antigen-1 (TIA1), a binding protein of MROH7-TTC4, processed it into MROH7 and TTC4 that could inhibit VEC apoptosis. Here, we conclude that inhibiting ANXA7 GTPase activity promotes the interaction of ANXA7 and XRN2 in nucleus, which regulates the read-through transcription of MROH7-TTC4, and TIA1 is responsible for the process of MROH7-TTC4 that inhibits apoptosis through MROH7 and TTC4.
