Experimental Support 1 for Functional miRNA-Target Interaction
miRNA:Target hsa-miR-20a-5p :: APP    [ Functional MTI ]
Validation Method Luciferase reporter assay , Western blot , Other
Conditions HeLa , NEURO-2A , SK-N-SH
Location of target site 3'UTR
Original Description (Extracted from the article) ... We found that miR-20a, miR-17-5p, and miRNA106b affected significantly luciferase expression (Fig. 1B).//We transfected complementary anti-miR oligonucleotides and these caused a sig- nificant increase in luciferase expression (Fig. 1F). Thus we identify three miRNAs that bind directly and specifically to the 3′UTR of APP. ...

Gene dosage effects of Amyloid precursor protein (APP) can cause familial AD. Recent evidence suggest that microRNA (miRNA) pathways, implicated in gene transcriptional control, could be involved in the development of sporadic Alzheimer's disease (AD). We therefore investigated whether miRNAs could participate in the regulation of APP gene expression. We show that miRNAs belonging to the miR-20a family (that is, miR-20a, miR-17-5p and miR-106b) could regulate APP expression in vitro and at the endogenous level in neuronal cell lines. A tight correlation between these miRNAs and APP was found during brain development and in differentiating neurons. We thus identify miRNAs as novel endogenous regulators of APP expression, suggesting that variations in miRNA expression could contribute to changes in APP expression in the brain during development and disease. This possibility is further corroborated by the observation that a statistically significant decrease in miR-106b expression was found in sporadic AD patients.

miRNA:Target hsa-miR-20a-5p :: APP    [ Functional MTI ]
Validation Method GFP reporter assay , qRT-PCR , Western blot
Conditions OVCAR-3
Location of target site 3'UTR
Original Description (Extracted from the article) ... miR-20a targets directly at the APP 3' UTR//From these results, we concluded that miR-20a could negatively regulate APP expression through directly binding to the special sequence of APP mRNA 3' UTR.//The EGFP reporter analysis showed that with wild-type 3' UTR inserting, the EGFP value was significantly lower than mutants when they were all treated with irrespective sequences[Fig. 2(D)], demonstrating the effects of endogenous miR-20a on APP. ...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are emerging as a class of small regulated RNAs, and the alterations of miRNAs are implicated in the initiation and progression of human cancers. Our study shows that inhibition of miR-20a in OVCAR3 ovarian cancer cell line could suppress, whereas overexpression of miR-20a could enhance cell long-term proliferation and invasion. We also confirmed amyloid precursor protein (APP) as a direct target gene of miR- 20a. Furthermore, suppression of APP expression could also promote ovarian cancer cell proliferation and invasion, which is consistent with the results of miR-20a overexpression. Therefore, we concluded that the regulation of APP is an important mechanism for miR-20a to promote proliferation and invasion in ovarian cancer cells.
