Abstract

Tripartite motif-containing protein 37 (TRIM37), a new member of the RING-B-box-coiled-coil (RBCC) subfamily of zinc finger proteins, was found to be involved in the development and progression of several cancers. However, the expression pattern and biological functions of TRIM37 in colorectal cancer (CRC) remain unknown. Therefore, in the present study, we examined the expression pattern of TRIM37 in CRC and investigated the function of TRIM37 in the progression of CRC. Our results showed that TRIM37 expression was upregulated in CRC cell lines. Knockdown of TRIM37 inhibited CRC cell proliferation and tumor growth in vivo. Furthermore, knockdown of TRIM37 inhibited the migration and invasion in CRC cells. Last, knockdown of TRIM37 inhibited the protein level expression of β-catenin, cyclin D1, and c-Myc in CRC cells. In conclusion, these results demonstrate that TRIM37 may play an important role in the proliferation, invasion, and tumorigenesis of CRC cells. Thus, TRIM37 may be a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of CRC.
