Angiogenesis is essential for various biological processes, including tumor blood supply delivery, cancer cell growth, invasion and metastasis. Plasmacytoma variant translocation 1 (PVT1) long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) has been previously reported to affect angiogenesis of glioma microvascular endothelial cells by regulating microRNA (miR)‑186 expression level. However, the specific underlying molecular mechanism of PVT1 regulation of angiogenesis in vascular endothelial cells remains to be elucidated. The present study investigated the role of PVT1 in cell proliferation, migration and vascular tube formation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) using MTT assay, Transwell migration assay and in vitro vascular tube formation assay, respectively. In order to determine the effect of miR‑26b on cell proliferation, migration and vascular tube formation of HUVECs, miR‑26 mimic or miR‑26b inhibitor were transfected into HUVECs. Reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction and western blotting were conducted to quantify the mRNA and protein expression levels of target genes. The present study confirmed that miR‑26b bound 3'‑untranslated region (3'‑UTR) and subsequently influenced gene expression level using d...Continue Reading
