PIWI-interacting RNA 57125 restrains clear cell renal cell carcinoma metastasis by downregulating CCL3 expression

ABSTRACT: Clear-cell renal cell carcinoma is one of the most common tumors disagnosed, with nearly one third of patients diagnosed with metastatic ccRCC. Although an increasing number of studies has revealed that piwi-interacting RNAs are aberrantly expressed in diverse types of cancers, few of them explored the detailed molecular mechanism of piRNAs in carcinogenesis, particularly in ccRCC. In this study, differentially expressed piRNAs associated with ccRCC were selected by using piRNA-sequencing combined with TCGA data analysis, and piR-57125 was identified. PiR-57125 was found remarkably downregulated in ccRCC samples. Functionally, knockdown of piR-57125 promoted migration and invasion of ccRCC, while overexpression of piR-57125 suppressed ccRCC metastasis. In vivo lung metastasis model also confirmed the same results. CCL3 was identified as the direct target of piR-57125 which could potentially reverse the inhibition effect of piR-57125 in ccRCC metastasis. Further study revealed that piR-57125 modulated ccRCC metastasis through the AKT/ERK pathway. These data indicate that piR-57125 restrains ccRCC metastasis by directly targeting CCL3 and inhibiting the AKT/ERK pathway, and could be a potential therapeutic target for ccRCC.
