Abstract

Effects of miR-135a-5p and miR-141 on the biological function of colorectal cancer SW620 cells were investigated. Fifty-four specimens of cancer tissues and 54 specimens of corresponding adjacent tissues in colon cancer patients who were treated in The Central Hospital of Wuhan from March 2014 to March 2015 were collected. RT-PCR was used to detect the expression levels of miR‑135a-5p and miR-141 in cancer tissues and adjacent tissues. The miR‑135a-5p inhibitor and miR-141 mimic carriers were established. The cell proliferation was detected by CCK8, the invasion ability of cells in vitro was evaluated by Transwell chamber, and cell apoptosis of each group was detected by flow cytometry. The results of RT-qPCR showed that expression levels of miR-135a-5p in colorectal cancer tissues were significantly higher than those in adjacent tissues, the expression levels of miR-141 in colorectal cancer tissues were significantly lower than those in adjacent tissues, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.001). The cell survival rates of the miR-135a-5p inhibitor group and the miR-141 mimic group were significantly lower than those of the NC group and the blank group 48 and 72 h after transfection (P<0.001). The number of invasive cells in the miR-135a-5p inhibitor group and the miR-141 mimic group was significantly lower than that in the blank group and the NC group (P<0.001). Apoptosis rate was significantly higher than that of the NC group and the blank group (P<0.001). In conclusion, low expression levels of miR-135a-5p and miR-141 in colorectal adenomas suggested that miR-135a-5p and miR-141 could act as tumor suppressors in the development of colorectal adenomas; miR-135a-5p and miR-141 inhibited the proliferation and invasion of colon cancer SW620 cells and promoted apoptosis of colon cancer cells.
