Down-regulation of miR-489 contributes into NSCLC cell invasion through targeting SUZ12

microRNAs are small, non-coding RNAs that contribute into various biological processes during cancer progression. However, the potential role of miR-489 in the development of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) is not demonstrated. In present study, miR-489 was down-regulated both in tumor tissues and cells. Inhibition of miR-489 promoted cells invasion by using an invasion assay. Furthermore, miR-489 could regulate SUZ12 as shown by luciferase reporter and Western blot assays. Aberrant miR-489 expression could regulate the molecular changes (E-cadherin, N-cadherin, and Vimentin) of epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT). In conclusion, our study revealed that miR-489 may play an essential role in the progression of NSCLC.
