MicroRNAs (miRNAs) represent a class of small non‑coding RNAs regulating gene expression by inducing the degradation of RNA or interfering with translation. Aberrant miRNA expression has been described in several types of cancer in humans. By our pre-set miR array data, we identified miR-145 as the most significant tumor suppressor mir in urothelial carcinoma (UC). However, the expression of miR-145 in UC of the upper urinary tract (UTUC) has not been investigated. This study is conducted to evaluate the outcome predictive value of miR-145 expression in UTUC.
Materials and Methods:
Using a miRNA array (Applied Biosystems) that included 667 human miRNAs and mammalian RNU6B, we compare the differentially expressed miRNAs between BFTC909 cell line and paired UTUC samples. The miR-145 expression levels from 65 UTUC tissues and the paired adjacent noncancerous tissues were investigated by Real-Time Reverse Transcriptase PCR assay. In addition, the functional consequences of miR145 transfection in BFTC909 cells were studied in vitro by MTT, wound healing, cell migration, cell invasion assays.
In 65 paired tissues, we found that mir-145 expression was significantly decreased in UTUC tissues than in paired adjacent noncancerous tissues. Decreased mir-145 expression was associated with worse recurrence-free and cancer-specific survival. In cell line experiments, we demonstrated that mir145 can inhibit cell proliferation, migration and invasion in BFTC909 cell line after transfection of miR145 mimics.
Our findings imply that decreased miR-145 expression is a potential biomarker to predict clinical outcome of UTUC patients. Further study is necessary to identify the molecular mechanisms of miR-145 involved in the cancerous processes of UTUC.
