Abstract: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) have important regulation in in sepsis-related acute lung injury (ALI). Circ_0001498 was significantly overexpressed in sepsis-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome. The aims of this study were to explore role and mechanism of circ_0001498 in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-treated WI-38 cells. Human samples were collected from 56 sepsis patients and 46 healthy volunteers at Liyang People’s Hospital. Circ_0001498, microRNA-574-5p (miR-574-5p) or sex-determining region Y-related high-mobility-group box 6 (SOX6) levels were detected via reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction assay. Cell viability was determined through Cell Counting Kit-8 assay. Apoptosis rate was examined by flow cytometry. Western blot was used for measurement of proteins. Inflammatory cytokines were detected via enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Target relation was analyzed via dual-luciferase reporter assay and RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP) assay. Circ_0001498 was overexpressed in sepsis-related ALI patients and LPS-treated WI-38 cells. Silencing circ_0001498 reduced LPS-induced cell apoptosis and inflammation. Circ_0001498 interacted with miR-574-5p. The regulation of circ_0001498 knockdown was abolished by miR-574-5p inhibitor. Furthermore, miR-574-5p directly targeted SOX6 and circ_0001498 upregulated SOX6 via targeting miR-574-5p. Overexpression of miR-574-5p alleviated LPS-induced cell injury by downregulating SOX6. This research identified that circ_0001498 facilitated sepsis-related ALI progression by targeting miR-574-5p to upregulate SOX6.
