Abstract
OBJECTIVE: Our study aimed to evaluate the effect of circular RNA ABCB10 (circ-ABCB10) on proliferation and apoptosis of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) cells, and its prognostic value in patients with ccRCC.
METHODS: Circ-ABCB10 expression in five ccRCC cell lines and normal kidney epithelial cell line was measured by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Empty overexpression, circ-ABCB10 overexpression, empty shRNA, and circ-ABCB10 shRNA plasmids were transfected into A498 cells as negative control for circ-ABCB10 over expression {NC (+)}, Circ-ABCB10(+), negative control (-){NC(-)}, and Circ-ABCB10(-) groups, then cell proliferation and apoptosis were evaluated by Cell Counting Kit-8 and annexin V/propidium iodide. Meanwhile, apoptotic markers were measured by western blot. Subsequently, circ-ABCB10 expression in tumor tissues and paired adjacent tissues from 120 ccRCC patients was measured by qPCR.
RESULTS: Circ-ABCB10 expression was elevated in all the ccRCC cell lines compared with the normal kidney cells line. A498 cell proliferation was enhanced in the Circ-ABCB10(+) group compared with the NC(+) group, while it was inhibited in the Circ-ABCB10(-) group compared with the NC (-) group; and A498 cell apoptosis was repressed in the Circ-ABCB10(+) group than the NC(+) group, but was promoted in the Circ-ABCB10(-) group compared with the NC(-) group. In addition, circ-ABCB10 was up-regulated in tumor tissues compared with paired adjacent tissues, and its high expression correlated with the advanced pathological grade and the tumor node metastasis stage as well as independently predicting worse overall survival in ccRCC patients.
CONCLUSION: Circ-ABCB10 promotes tumor progression and correlates with pejorative prognosis in ccRCC.
