BACKGROUND: Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a debilitating neuropathological condition that significantly affects the quality of life. The present study is basic research examining the underlying mechanisms of NEAT1 and miR-29a in regulating LPS-induced PC-12 cell injury.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: The model of cell injury was induced by the treatment of PC-12 cells with LPS. The expressions of NEAT1, miR-29a, and inflammatory cytokines were measured by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reactions (RT-qPCR). Cell proliferation and apoptosis were evaluated by CCK-8 and flow cytometry, respectively. Finally, the target between miR-29a and NEAT1 as well as miR-29a and BCL2L11 was investigated by luciferase and RNA pull-down assays.
RESULTS: Knockdown of NEAT1 can inhibit inflammatory cytokine expression and PC-12 cell apoptosis and promote PC-12 cell proliferation by targeting miR-29a. However, the variation caused by NEAT1 knockdown can be reversed by the silencing of miR-29a and the overexpression of BCL2L11, which is the direct target gene of miR-29a.
CONCLUSIONS: High NEAT1 levels can increase LPS-induced injury in PC-12 cells through the miR-29a/BCL2L11 pathway. lncRNA NEAT1 may, therefore, be a promising target for SCI treatment.
