Circ_0002060 enhances doxorubicin resistance in osteosarcoma by regulating miR-198/ABCB1 axis [post]

2020 unpublished
Osteosarcoma (OS) is a common aggressive primary sarcoma of bone. Drug resistance is a huge obstacle to chemotherapy for cancer. This study aimed to investigate the role and mechanism of circ_0002060 in OS resistance to doxorubicin (DOX). Methods The levels of circ_0002060, miR-198 and ATP binding cassette subfamily B member 1 (ABCB1) were measured by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction or western blot assay. Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed to determine the relationship between

Cell proliferation was assessed by colony formation assay. Cell apoptosis was monitored by flow cytometry. The levels of apoptosis-related proteins were measured by western blot assay. Xenograft assay was utilized to analyze the effect of circ_0002060 on DOX resistance in vivo . The interaction among circ_0002060, miR-198 and ABCB1 were confirmed by dual-luciferase reporter assay, RNA immunoprecipitation assay or RNA pull-down assay. Results Circ_0002060 and ABCB1 were up-regulated, while miR-198 was down-regulated in OS tissues and DOX-resistant OS cells. Circ_0002060 silence reduced DOX resistance in vitro and in vivo . Moreover, circ_0002060 enhanced DOX resistance via sponging miR-198. Besides, miR-198 decreased DOX resistance by binding to ABCB1. In addition, circ_0002060 sponged miR-198 to up-regulate ABCB1 expression. Conclusion Circ_0002060 enhanced doxorubicin resistance of OS by regulating miR-198/ABCB1 axis, which provides potential therapeutic targets for OS therapy. Background Osteosarcoma (OS) is a common malignant bone cancer that occurs in children and adolescents [1] . With the development of treatment technology, OS therapy is not limited
