miR-1193 Suppresses the Proliferation and Invasion of Human T-Cell Leukemia Cells Through Directly Targeting the Transmembrane 9 Superfamily 3 (TM9SF3).


miRNAs have been involved in various types of cancer, including T-cell leukemia. In this study, the role of miR-1193 in the proliferation and invasion of T-cell leukemia cells was explored. First, we found that miR-1193 was sharply downregulated in T-cell leukemia cells when compared with normal T cells. miR-1193 markedly decreased the proliferation and invasion in Jurkat human T-cell leukemia cells. Transmembrane 9 superfamily 3 (TM9SF3) was then predicted to be a potential target gene of miR-1193, the levels of which displayed a strongly negative correlation with miR-1193 levels in T-cell leukemia patients. We confirmed that TM9SF3 was a target gene of miR-1193 by luciferase reporter gene assay. Finally, gene overexpression and knockdown experiments in Jurkat cells revealed that TM9SF3 positively regulated cell proliferation and invasion.
