Silencing circCAMSAP1 suppresses malignant behavior of endometrial cancer by targeting microRNA-370-3p/MAPK1
The study was conducted to figure out the function and mechanism of circular RNA circCAMSAP1 in repressing malignant behavior of endometrial carcinoma (EC) by targeting microRNA (miR)-370-3p /MAPK1. Tumor tissues and normal adjacent tissues of EC patients were harvested, and circCAMSAP1 and MAPK1 were elevated but miR-370-3p was reduced in tissues and cells of EC patients. Functional test results clarified transfection of si-circCAMSAP1 or miR-370-3p-mimic refrained cancer cell proliferation, migration and invasion, but motivated cancer cell apoptosis. Meanwhile, the amount of E-cadherin elevated and the amount of N-cadherin elevated or reduced. After co-transfection with si-circCAMSAP1 and miR-370-3p-inhibitor, miR-370-3p-inhibitor blocked si-circCAMSAP1’s therapeutic impact. Furthermore, after co-transfection of pcDNA-circCAMSAP1 and si-MAPK1, si-MAPK1 turned around the malignant effect of pcDNA-circCAMSAP1. It was testified that miR-370-3p was circCAMSAP1’s target, and inversely controlled via circCAMSAP1. Meanwhile, enhancing miR-370-3p led to repressive MAPK1, which was recognized as miR-370-3p’s downstream target. All in all, the results of this study convey silencing circCAMSAP1 refrains the malignant behavior of EC by controlling miR-370-3p /MAPK1 axis.
