MiR-130b inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis of gastric cancer cells via CYLD
A role of microRNA-130b (miR-130b) in the carcinogenesis of gastric cancer remains undetermined. In this study, we studied the effects and mechanism of miR-130b to the gastric cell proliferation and apoptosis. We found that the levels of miR-130b significantly up-regulated in gastric cancer tissue, compared to the paired adjacent non-tumor gastric tissue. The miR-130b levels in gastric cancer cell lines were significantly higher than those in control normal gastric tissues. Transfection with the miR-130b mimic enhanced the cell proliferation and suppressed cell apoptosis in gastric cancer cells, while transfection with the anti-sense of miR-130b (anti-miR-130b) suppressed cell proliferation and induced cell apoptosis in gastric cancer cells. Bioinformatics analyses showed that cylindromatosis gene (CYLD) was a potential target gene of miR-130b. The luciferase activity assay and western blot verified that miR-130b targeted CYLD messenger RNA (mRNA) to modulate its protein levels. Together, our study suggests that aberrantly expressed miR-130b may regulate cell apoptosis and proliferation of human gastric cancer cells via CYLD, which appears to be a promising therapeutic target for gastric cancer.
