The objective of this research was to analyze the miR-145 function in thyroid papillary carcinoma cells and explore its possible mechanism. For this purpose, the TPC-1 cell line was selected, miR-145 overexpression and rab5c shRNA lentiviral vector were constructed, and transfected into PTC cells. Luciferase reporter gene was performed to determine the relationship between miR-145 and rab5c, Western blot and qPCR were performed to detach the expression of the related genes, CCK-8 cell proliferation assay and Transwell cell invasion assay were used to determine the proliferation and invasion ability of PTC-1 cells. Results showed that MiR-145 overexpression inhibited the wt-rab5c (wild-type rab5c)luciferase activity, decreased the expression of rab5c mRNA and protein levels in the TPC-1 cell line, inhibited the proliferation and invasion of PTC cell line TPC-1(P < 0.05). In TPC-1 cells, both miR-145 overexpression and RNA interference with rab5c could increase the expression of the p-ERK protein (P < 0.05). In conclusion, MiR-145 inhibits the proliferation and invasion of PTC cells by downregulating rab5c and activating MAPK/ERK pathway in vitro.
