Abstract

BACKGROUND: In developed countries, prostate cancer (PCa) is a frequently diagnosed cancer with the second highest fatality rate. Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are a class of endogenous non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) stably expressed in cells and involved in a series of carcinomas. However, few research studies have reported on the role of circRNAs in PCa.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: We used qRT-PCR to detect the expression of circMYLK (circRNA ID: hsa_circ_0141940) and miR-29a in PCa tissues and cell lines. MTT, colony formation, and TUNEL assays were performed to analysis the cell viability of PCa cells. Transwell and wound scratch assays were performed to investigate the cell invasion and migration of PCa cells.

RESULTS: In the present study, we confirmed that circMYLK expression level was significantly higher in PCa samples and PCa cells than in normal tissues and normal prostatic cells. The upregulated circRNA-MYLK promoted PCa cells proliferation, invasion, and migration; however, si-circRNA-MYLK significantly accelerated the PCa cell apoptosis. We also observed that the aforementioned function of circRNA-MYLK on PCa cells was affected through targeting miR-29a.

CONCLUSIONS: We confirmed circRNA-MYLK was an oncogene in PCa and revealed a novel mechanism underlying circRNA-MYLK in PC progression.
