Ovarian cancer (OC) is a major cancer-related mortality among women. Recent studies suggest that many microRNAs (miRNAs) were dysregulated and involved in tumorigenesis of OC. The present study investigated the role of miR-25 in the development and progression of OC. The expression of miR-25 was increased in OC tissues and cell lines. Inhibition of miR-25 remarkably suppressed proliferation, migration, and invasion of OC cells. Large tumor suppressor 2 (LATS2), a tumor suppressor, was confirmed to be a direct target of miR-25 in OC cells. Moreover, restoration of LATS2 significantly attenuated the oncogenic effects of miR-25. Together, our data suggest an oncogenic role of miR-25 in OC and a potentially novel diagnostic and therapeutic target for OC treatment.
