    Cytoplasmic polyadenylation element binding protein 4 (CPEB4) could be an important regulator in variety of cancers. However, the biological function and the underlying molecular mechanism of CPEB4 in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains unknown. In this study, we investigated the metastasis role of CPEB4 in NSCLC cells, we knocked down CPEB4 using siRNA. Transwell migration assay and cell invasion assay on Matrigel were presented, and cell migration was also determined by scratch-healing assay. ROS generation were determined by fluorescence probe DCFH2-DA. The protein expression was assessed by ELISA and Western blot analysis. LY294002 were used to inhibit PI3 K/Akt signaling. The data showed that knockdown of CPEB4 inhibited the migration and invasion of NSCLC. Moreover, silencing of CPEB4 reduced Snail and MMP-3 expression in vitro. We also indicated that CPEB4 knockdown increased the ROS expression. Furthermore, we found that silencing of CPEB4 decreased pAkt expression. Taken all together, our data demonstrated that silencing of CPEB4 induces ROS generation, thus suppressing the Akt expression, which finally prevents NSCLC cells invasion and migration. Therefore, CPEB4 may regard as a target to inhibit NSCLC invasion and metastasis through Akt pathway.

    Accumulating evidence has revealed that an elevated expression level of Aurora-B is associated with metastasis in various types of malignant tumor. However, it is currently unclear whether this molecule is involved in non-small lung cancer (NSCLC) metastasis, and the molecular mechanisms associated with Aurora-B and metastasis remain unknown. In the present study, in order to investigate whether Aurora-B is involved in the development and metastasis of NSCLC, the Aurora-B protein expression in NSCLC tissues was detected by immunohistochemistry and its association with metastasis was analyzed.

    Effect of microRNA-135a on Cell Proliferation, Migration, Invasion, Apoptosis and Tumor Angiogenesis Through the IGF-1/PI3K/Akt Signaling Pathway in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.
    Cell Physiol Biochem 2017 17;42(4):1431-1446. Epub 2017 Jul 17.
    Department of thoracic surgery, Dongying, China.
    Objective: This study explored the ability of microRNA-135a (miR-135a) to influence cell proliferation, migration, invasion, apoptosis and tumor angiogenesis through the IGF-1/PI3K/Akt signaling pathway in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

    Methods: NSCLC tissues and adjacent normal tissues were collected from 138 NSCLC patients. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was used to detect the expression levels of miR-135a and IGF-1, PI3K, Akt, VEGF, bFGF and IL-8 mRNA; western blotting was used to determine the expression levels of IGF-1, PI3K and Akt protein; and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to analyze the expression levels of VEGF, bFGF and IL-8 protein.
