MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs which play important roles in tumor progression. MiR-383-5p has been characterized as a cancer suppressor in several cancers. The aim of theses present study was to explore the role of miR-383-5p in the proliferation and chemosensitivity of ovarian cancer cells. MiR-383-5p expression was down-regulated while the expression of TRIM27 was up-regulated in ovarian cancer tissues and cell lines. We came up with the hypothesis that miR-383-5p might be involved in the tumor progression and chemoresistance of ovarian cancer through targeting TRIM27. Bioinformatics study and Luciferase reporter assay indicated that TRIM27 was a target of miR-383-5p and negatively regulated by miR-383-5p in ovarian cancer cells. Up-regulation of miR-383-5p was found to suppress cell proliferation and decrease Ki67 and PCNA expression in ovarian cancer cells (OVCAR3, A2780), suggesting that overexpressed miR-383-5p inhibited cell proliferation of ovarian cancer cells. In addition, up-regulation of miR-383-5p decreased the IC value of ovarian cancer cells to paclitaxel and increased cell apoptosis rate under the treatment of paclitaxel, indicating that overexpressed miR-383-5p enhanced chemosensitivity in ovarian cancer cells. However, overexpressed TRIM27 by pcDNA3.1-TRIM27 transfection counteracted the inhibitory effect of miR-383-5p on cell proliferation and chemoresistance in ovarian cancer cells. In vivo experiments also revealed that tumor growth could be inhibited by miR-383-5p mimic. Taken together, this present study found that miR-383-5p was lowly expressed while TRIM27 was highly expressed in ovarian cancer. Up-regulation of miR-383-5p inhibited cell proliferation, tumor growth and enhanced chemosensitivity of ovarian cancer cells through suppressing TRIM27 expression. Therefore, miR-383-5p/TRIM27 axis may be the potential target for the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.
Tumors or cancer of the OVARY. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. They are classified according to the tissue of origin, such as the surface EPITHELIUM, the stromal endocrine cells, and the totipotent GERM CELLS.
Retrovirus-associated DNA sequences (v-myb) originally isolated from the avian myeloblastosis and E26 leukemia viruses. The proto-oncogene c-myb codes for a nuclear protein involved in transcriptional regulation and appears to be essential for hematopoietic cell proliferation. The human myb gene is located at 6q22-23 on the short arm of chromosome 6. This is the point of break in translocations involved in T-cell acute lymphatic leukemia and in some ovarian cancers and melanomas. (From Ibelgaufts, Dictionary of Cytokines, 1995).
A physiologically active metabolite of VITAMIN D. The compound is involved in the regulation of calcium metabolism, alkaline phosphatase activity, and enhances the calcemic effect of CALCITRIOL.
An antiviral antibiotic produced by Cephalosporium aphidicola and other fungi. It inhibits the growth of eukaryotic cells and certain animal viruses by selectively inhibiting the cellular replication of DNA polymerase II or the viral-induced DNA polymerases. The drug may be useful for controlling excessive cell proliferation in patients with cancer, psoriasis or other dermatitis with little or no adverse effect upon non-multiplying cells.
