MiR-192-5p suppresses the growth of bladder cancer cells via targeting Yin Yang 1

Bladder cancer has been identified as one of the most malignant cancers with high incidence and mortality. The underlying mechanisms by which regulate the tumorigenesis of bladder cancer deserve further investigation. Here, we found that miR-192-5p was downregulated in human bladder cancer cell lines and tissues. Overexpression of miR-192-5p significantly inhibited the growth of bladder cancer cells, while depletion of miR-192-5p exerted opposite effect. Bioinformatics analysis and molecular mechanism study identified that miR-192-5p targeted the transcription factor Yin Yang 1 (YY1) and decreased the expression level of YY1. Highly expressed YY1 attenuated the potential tumor suppressive function of miR-192-5p. The expression of miR-192-5p was negatively correlated with that of YY1 in bladder cancer tissues. These results indicated that miR-192-5p might serve as a promising target in bladder cancer diagnosis and therapy.
