Abstract

Objective: Breast cancer is a major cancer threatening the health of women globally. To elucidate the effect of the circHIAT1/miR-19a-3p/phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) axis on regulating the malignant phenotype of breast cancer cells. Methods: The mRNA expression pattern of circHIAT1, miR-19a-3p, and PTEN was checked by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Then, the knockdown assay was carried out to explore the effect of circHIAT1 and miR-19a-3p on breast cancer. The relative cell experiments, including MTT assay, scratch assay, transwell invasion assay, and flow cytometry analysis, were conducted to verify the influence of circHIAT1 and miR-19a-3p on breast cancer cells. Results: The levels of PTEN and circHIAT1 were reduced, while that of miR-19a-3p was elevated in breast cancer tissues and cells. MiR-19a-3p was proved to be the target gene of circHIAT1 via a dual luciferase experiment, which could also modulate the PTEN mRNA level. Overexpression of circHIAT1 was able to undermine the growth, migratory ability, and invasiveness in breast cancer cells, which could be antagonized by miR-19a-3p mimic. The inhibition of miR-19a-3p in vitro also impaired the malignancy of breast cancer, which depended on the modulation of PTEN expression. Conclusion: CircHIAT1 controls the PTEN expression level in cells of breast cancer by negatively regulating miR-19a-3p. This mechanism controls the growth, invasion, and migration of breast cancer.
