ABSTRACT

MicroRNAs (miRs) serve important roles in glioma. However, the underlying molecular mechanism of miR-25 in glioma progression remains largely unknown; therefore, it was investigated in the present study. RT-qPCR analysis revealed that miR-25 expression levels were markedly increased in human glioma tissue and glioma cell lines compared with normal brain tissues and normal human astrocytes, respectively. miR-25 upregulation exhibited an association with glioma progression, and the knockdown of miR-25 significantly inhibited glioma cell proliferation and migration. F-box and WD repeat domain containing 7 (FBXW7) and dickkopf WNT signaling pathway inhibitor 3 (DKK3) were identified as target genes of miR-25. FBXW7 and DKK3 expression levels were significantly downregulated in glioma tissue samples compared with normal brain tissue, and their expression levels were negatively regulated by miR-25 expression in glioma cells. Furthermore, inhibition of FBXW7 and DKK3 expression suppressed the miR-25-induced effects on glioma cell proliferation and migration. The findings of the present study suggest that miR-25 may promote glioma cell proliferation and migration by inhibiting the expression of FBXW7 and DKK3. Therefore, miR-25 may serve as a promising molecular target for the treatment of glioma.
