MicroRNAs (miRNA) are small noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression in human diseases, including lung cancer. miRNAs have oncogenic and nononcogenic functions in lung cancer. In this study, we report the identification of a novel miRNA, miR-7515, from lung cancer cells. The novel miR-7515 was characterized using various predictive programs and experimental methods. miR-7515 was able to forming a stem-loop structure and its sequence was conserved in mammals. The expression level of miR-7515 in lung cancer cells and tissues was profiled using TaqMan miRNA assays. miR-7515 was downregulated in lung cancer compared with normal human lung cells and tissues. The target of miR-7515 was determined using a dual luciferase reporter assay. Expression of the target gene was determined by quantitative RT-PCR and Western blot analysis after transfection with miR-7515. miR-7515 directly suppressed human mesenchymal–epithelial transition factor (c-Met) by binding to the 3′ untranslated region (UTR). Overexpression of miR-7515 significantly decreased cell-cycle–related proteins downstream of c-Met through c-Met inhibition. Cell proliferation and migration were examined using the XTT proliferation assay and the Transwell migration assay. miR-7515 led to decreased cell proliferation, migration and invasion in a lung cancer cell line. These results suggest that miR-7515 plays an important role in the proliferation and migration of lung cancer cells through c-Met regulation. Mol Cancer Res; 11(1); 43–53. ©2012 AACR.
