Abstract: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to be vital participants in tumor progression. Recently, lncRNA PSMB8-AS1 has been uncovered to facilitate pancreatic cancer progression by regulating miR-382-3p/STAT1/PD-L1 network. Nonetheless, the role of PSMB8-AS1 and its underlying mechanism have not been well-explored in colorectal cancer (CRC). The expression of RNAs or proteins was detected via qRT-PCR or western blot assays. Functional assays were involved in evaluating the effects of PSMB8-AS1/miR-1299/ADAMTS5 on the malignant behaviors of CRC cells. The molecular mechanism of PSMB8-AS1 was explored via mechanism analyses in CRC cells. Based on experimental results, PSMB8-AS1 expression was notably higher in CRC cell lines than in normal cells. The downregulation of PSMB8-AS1 repressed cell viability, proliferation, migration, invasion, and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of CRC while promoting cell apoptosis. It was also revealed that PSMB8-AS1 could sponge miR-1299 to upregulate ADAMTS5 in CRC cells. In rescue assays, we further discovered that miR-1299 inhibition or ADAMTS5 overexpression abrogated the suppressive influence of PSMB8-AS1 deficiency on CRC cell growth. In addition, PSMB8-AS1 was validated to induce M2 polarization. In conclusion, PSMB8-AS1 sponges miR-1299 to increase PSMB8-AS1 expression, thus promoting CRC cell growth.
