OBJECTIVE: This study aims to clarify the influence of microRNA-410-3p (miRNA-410-3p) on hypoxia-induced injury in cardiomyocytes.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: MiRNA-410-3p level, apoptotic rate, and cell viability in AC16 cells undergoing normoxia or hypoxia preconditioning were assessed. The regulatory effects of miRNA-410-3p and TRAF5 on the proliferative and apoptotic abilities of AC16 cells were evaluated. The binding relationship between miRNA-410-3p and TRAF5 was verified by Dual-Luciferase Reporter Gene Assay.
RESULTS: Hypoxia preconditioning triggered apoptosis and inhibited the viability in AC16 cells. MiRNA-410-3p was downregulated in cardiomyocytes under the hypoxic environment. The overexpression of miRNA-410-3p stimulated proliferation and inhibited apoptosis in hypoxia preconditioning AC16 cells. TRAF5 was proved to be the target of miRNA-410-3p. TRAF5 level was negatively regulated by miRNA-410-3p. The silence of TRAF5 could reverse viability and apoptosis changes in hypoxic AC16 cells overexpressing miRNA-410-3p.
CONCLUSIONS: MiRNA-410-3p protects hypoxia-induced proliferation suppression and apoptosis stimulation in cardiomyocytes via targeting TRAF5.Free PDF Download
