Abstract: Objective: To investigate the effects of miR-335-5p targeting glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) on the proliferation and apoptosis of colon cancer cells. Methods: Normal colon cell group, blank control group, NC group and miRNA-335-5p mimic group were set up. Colonic epithelial cells (IEC) and human colon cancer cells SW480 were cultured in vitro, and the cells in the NC group and miRNA-335-5p mimic group cells were transfected. RT-qPCR was used to detect the expression levels of miR-335-5p and G6PD mRNA in each group of cells. The targeting effect of miR-335-5p on G6PD was verified by Double Luciferase Report experiment. MTT assay was used to detect cell proliferation. Flow cytometry was used to detect the apoptosis rate. The expressions of G6PD, Bax, Bcl-2 and caspase-3 were detected by Western blot. Results: Compared with normal colon cells, the relative expression levels of miR-335-5p in SW480 cells of colon cancer in the blank control group and NC group were decreased, and the relative expression level of G6PD mRNA was increased (P<0.05); compared with the blank control group and NC group, the expression level of miR-335-5p in miR-335-5p mimic group was increased significantly, and the expression of G6PD mRNA was decreased significantly (P<0.05). Compared with the blank control group and NC group, the proliferative activity of colon cancer SW480 cells in miR-335-5p mimic group was decreased significantly, and the apoptosis rate was increased significantly (P<0.05). The relative activity of luciferase in miR-335-5p mimic + WT-G6PD 3 '- UTR group was lower than that in miR-335-5p NC + WT-G6PD 3' - UTR group (P<0.05). Compared with the blank control group, the relative expression levels of G6PD and bcl-2 protein in miR-335-5p mimic group were decreased significantly, and the expression levels of Bax and caspase-3 protein were increased significantly (P<0.05). Conclusion: MiR-335-5p may inhibit the proliferation and promote apoptosis of colon cancer cells by targeting G6PD.
