摘要

目的:探索锌指蛋白521(ZNF521)在结肠癌中的表达、功能和临床意义,并研究其机制。方法:采用免疫组织化学、蛋白质印迹法和qRT-PCR检测结肠癌组织或细胞系中ZNF521或miR-211-5p的表达;采用小干扰RNA(small interfering,siRNA)和miRNA模拟物分别构建ZNF521低表达和miR-211-5p高表达细胞模型;采用CCK-8实验和Transwell实验分别检测细胞的增殖、迁移和侵袭;采用蛋白质印迹法检测凋亡相关蛋白Bax和Bcl-2的表达;通过CircInteractome生物信息学网站预测、双荧光素报告基因实验验证miR-211-5p与ZNF521的靶向关系。结果:与正常结肠组织相比,结肠癌患者标本中ZNF521表达显著增加,其高表达与患者TNM分期增加、分化程度低及局部淋巴结转移显著相关;体外实验证实,敲低ZNF521或过表达miR-211-5p抑制了结肠癌细胞增殖、迁移和侵袭,并促进了结肠癌细胞凋亡;相关的机制研究证实,miR-211-5p可以靶向ZNF521并负调节后者的表达。结论:ZNF521可作为致癌基因调节结肠癌细胞的增殖、迁移、侵袭和凋亡并受到miR-211-5p的靶向调控。

Abstract

Objective: To explore the expression, function, and clinical significance of ZNF521 in colon cancer and its mechanism. Methods: Immunohistochemistry, Western blotting and qRT-PCR were used to detect the expression of ZNF521 and miR-211-5p in colon cancer tissues or cell lines; small interfering RNA (siRNA) and miRNA mimics were used to construct cell models with low expression of ZNF521 and high expression of miR-211-5p respectively; CCK-8 and Transwell experiments were used to detect cell proliferation, migration and invasion, respectively. Western blotting was used to detect the expression of apoptosis-related proteins Bax and Bcl-2, and the targeting relationship between miR-211-5p and ZNF521 was verified by the prediction of CircInteractome bioinformatics website and the double fluorescein reporter gene experiment. Results: Compared with normal colon tissues, the expression of ZNF521 in colon cancer specimens significantly increased, and was correlated with TNM stage increase, the low degree of differentiation, and local lymph node metastasis. In vitro experiments showed that knocking down ZNF521 or overexpressing miR-211-5p inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion of colon cancer cells, and promoted apoptosis of colon cancer cells. Related mechanism studies confirmed that miR-211-5p targeted ZNF521 and negatively regulate the expression of the latter. Conclusion: ZNF521 acts as a cancer-promoting molecule to regulate proliferation, migration, invasion and apoptosis of colon cancer cells and is targetedly regulated by miR-211-5p.
