A 41 year old man presented with a familial history of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A (MEN2A) and severe hypertension. Rearranged during transfection (RET) gene sequencing confirmed a Cys634Tyr mutation of TGC to TAC. Total thyroidectomy and bilateral neck dissection were performed and the pathological assessment revealed a medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), 0.6 cm in size on the right side (number of lymph nodes: 0/2, 0/15, 0/12, and 0/8 in areas VI, II, III, and IV, respectively) and a papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), 0.2 cm in size on the left side (numbers of lymph nodes: 2/6, 0/3, 0/10, and 0/6 in areas VI, II, III, and IV, respectively). There were no pathological changes in the MTC observed in the thyroid tissues on the left side. We believe that the follow-up of patients with both MTC and PTC should utilize a combination of the respective principles for rational disease reassessment.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To construct and identify lentiviral vector containing human ILK-shRNA and mda7 gene.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Based on the human ILK gene sequences, RNAi target sequences were designed and cloned into the lentiviral vector pSicoR-eGFP by restriction endonuclease HpaI and XhoI double digestion and T4 DNA ligase ligation. Based on the human mda7 gene sequences, PCR primers were designed to clone the full-length mda7, and were cloned into the lentiviral vector pLVX-Puro. After the candidate clones were identified by DNA sequencing, the recombinant plasmid and the three packaging plasmids were co-transfected into the human embryonic kidney 293T cells by lipofectamine 2000 to produce the lentiviral particles. Human prostate cancer PC-3 cells were infected with the constructed lentiviral vector. The ILK and mda7 expression levels in PC-3 cells were quantified by qPCR and Western blot, respectively. The effect of ILK and mda7 on proliferation and migration of PC-3 cells were assessed by MTT method and Transwell assay, respectively.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>ILK-pSicoR-eGFP and mda7-pLVX-Puro lentiviral vectors were successfully constructed. Strong green fluorescence was observed in the 293T cells under the fluorescent microscope after co-transfection of 293T cells with 4 plasmids of lentiviral vector. The transfection efficiency of the collected virus exceeded 90% in the 293T cells and the PC-3 cells were infected with the lentiviral particles with high efficiency. The A and B lentiviral vector inhibited the expression of ILK at both the mRNA and protein levels in PC-3 cells significantly. The mda7-pLVX-Puro lentiviral vector increased the expression of mda7 in PC-3 cells, and the ability was maintained for one month. Within 96 h, ILK and mad7 significantly inhibited the proliferation and migration of PC-3 cells (Ps<0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The lentiviral vectors of ILK knockdown and mda7 over-expression have been successfully constructed and identified. The recombinant lentivirus can efficiently infect human prostate cancer PC-3 cells, in which ILK expression is inhibited and mda7 is over-expressed.</p>
