Abstract:

Methyltransferase-like 3 (METTL3) is involved in RNA metabolism throughN6-methyladenosine (m(6)A) modification. However, whether METTL3 participates in theprogression of breast cancer is unclear. Aberrant expression of Mammalian hepatitisB X-interacting protein (HBXIP) drives the aggressiveness of breast cancer. Here, weare interested in the potential links between HBXIP and METTL3 in breast cancer. Weshowed that the expression of METTL3 was positively related to that of HBXIP inclinical breast cancer tissues. Moreover, HBXIP could up-regulate METTL3 in breastcancer cells. Mechanistically, HBXIP modulated METTL3 by inhibiting miRNA let-7g,which down-regulated the expression of METTL3 by targeting its 3&#39;UTR. Strikingly, wefound that METTL3 promoted the expression of HBXIP through m(6)A modification.Furthermore, overexpressed HBXIP could rescue the inhibited-proliferation andenhanced-apoptosis induced by silencing of METTL3 in breast cancer cells. Thus, weconclude that HBXIP up-regulates METTL3 by suppressing let-7g, in which METTL3increased HBXIP expression forming a positive feedback loop ofHBXIP/let-7g/METTL3/HBXIP, leading to accelerated cell proliferation in breastcancer.
