BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the utility of miR-126 in promoting malignant glioma progression and determine if miR-126 might be a target for malignant glioma treatment.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: The expression of miR-126 in malignant glioma tissues and cells was detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Western blot analysis was used to detect changes in protein levels. Transwell assay was applied to assess the migration and invasion in vitro. Luciferase reporter assay was used to confirm the binding of miR-126 and mature T cell proliferation 1 (MTCP1). A nude mouse tumor model was used to assess the molecular mechanism in vivo.
RESULTS: The expression level of miR-126 in patients with stage III~IV malignant glioma was significant lower than that in patients with stage I~II. In different malignant glioma cell lines, the expression was significantly reduced in U87MG. Compared with the control mimics group, the expression of MTCP1 was significantly decreased. The results of Transwell assay showed that the invasiveness and migration in the miR-126 mimics group was significantly lower than in the control mimics groups. miR-126 mimics did not affect luciferase activity in the Mut-miR-126/MTCP1 group, while miR-126 mimics reduced luciferase activity by 54% in the Wt-miR-126/MTCP1 group. The results of invasion showed that the invasion ability in the miR-126 inhibitor group was significantly increased compared with that in the normal control (NC) group, while the invasion and migration abilities in the MTCP1 siRNA group were significantly increased. After 6 weeks, the tumor volume in the miR-126 inhibitor group was significantly increased, while that in the MTCP1 siRNA group was significantly decreased.
CONCLUSIONS: miR-126 inhibits the migration of malignant glioma cells by inhibiting MTCP1.
