miR-25 Promotes Melanoma Progression by regulating RNA binding motif protein 47

Melanoma is the most aggressive skin cancer, and accounts for the major part of skin cancer-related deaths in the world. In addition, the underlying mechanism of tumor progression in melanoma remains far from being elucidated. In this study, we have evaluated the function of miR-25 in melanoma. First, we examined the expression of miR-25 in four melanoma cell lines (A875, MV3, M14 and uacc-257) and in a normal melanocyte cell line (HEM-a). Then, we overexpressed miR-25 in M14 cells. Our results show that miR-25 promotes M14 cell proliferation and migration. We found that miR-25 up-regulates the PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway in these tumor cells. Furthermore, a luciferase-based reporter gene assay showed that miR-25 could directly target the RNA-binding motif protein 47 (RBM47). Taken together, our findings suggest that RBM47 is a promising target for the treatment of melanoma.
