Abstract :

Background Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) is the most common histologic subtype of lung cancer. Studies have found that miR-1293 is related to the survival of LUAD patients. Unfortunately, its role in LUAD remains not fully clarified. Methods miR-1293 expression and its association with LUAD patients' clinical characteristics were analyzed in TCGA database. Also, miR-1293 expression was detected in LUAD cell lines. Cell viability, migration, invasion and expression of MMP2 and MMP9 were measured in LUAD cells following transfection with miR-1293 mimic or antagomir. Phosphoglucomutase (PGM) 5 was identified to be negatively related to miR-1293 in LUAD patients in TCGA database, and their association was predicated by Targetscan software. Hence, we further verified the relationship between miR-1293 and PGM5. Additionally, the effect and mechanism of miR-1293 were validated in a xenograft mouse model. Results We found miR-1293 expression was elevated, but PGM5 was decreased, in LUAD patients and cell lines. Higher miR-1293 expression was positively related to LUAD patients' pathologic stage and poor overall survival. miR-1293 mimic significantly promoted, whereas miR-1293 antagomir suppressed the viability, migration, invasion, and expression of MMP2 and MMP9 in LUAD cells. PGM5 was a target of miR-1293. Overexpression of PGM5 abrogated the effects of miR-1293 on the malignant phenotypes of LUAD cells. Administration of miR-1293 antagomir reduced tumor volume and staining of Ki-67 and MMP9, but elevated PGM5 expression in vivo. Conclusions miR-1293 promoted the proliferation, migration and invasion of LUAD cells via targeting PGM5, which indicated that miR-1293 might serve as a potential therapeutic target for LUAD patients.
