BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is quite common in the patients who frequently use the anticancer drug cisplatin. microRNAs (miRNAs) are powerful tools in modulating the expression of key factors in disease progression, but little is known about roles of miRNAs in AKI. This study explored the expression and function of miR-449 in cisplatin-induced AKI.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Rat renal proximal tubular cell line NRK-52E was used for cisplatin treatment and miR-449 sponge transfection. MTT assay and flow cytometry were performed to detect cell viability and apoptosis in different cell groups. Protein expression of sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), acetylated p53, and BCL-associated X protein (BAX) was detected to deduce the possible regulatory mechanism of miR-449.
RESULTS: Results showed that cisplatin treatment in NRK-52E cells significantly up-regulated miR-449 levels (P<0.05), inhibited cell viability (P<0.05), accelerated cell apoptosis (P<0.05), and changed SIRT1, acetylated p53, and BAX protein levels (P<0.01). However, inhibiting miR-449 by its sponge transfection in cisplatin-treated cells significantly promoted cell viability (P<0.05), suppressed cell apoptosis (P<0.05), elevated SIRT1 expression (P<0.01), and inhibited acetylated p53 and BAX protein levels (P<0.001).
CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that inhibiting miR-449 allows the attenuation of cisplatin-induced injury in NRK-52E cells, suggesting that miR-449 is a potential target for treating AKI. miR-449 regulates the SIRT1/p53/BAX pathway, which may be its possible mechanism in modulating cell apoptosis of cisplatin-induced AKI. Further verification and a thorough understanding are necessary for targeting miR-449 in AKI treatment.
