LncRNA homeobox (HOX) transcript antisense intergenic RNA (HOTAIR) has been confirmed to be involved in the tumorigenic progression of endometrial carcinoma (EC). However, the molecular mechanisms of HOTAIR in EC are not fully elucidated. The expression of HOTAIR and miR-646 in human EC tissues was determined by qRT-PCR. The effect of miR-646 on EC cells was assessed by the cell viability, migration, and invasion using CCK-8 assays and transwell assays. RNA-binding protein immunoprecipitation assays and RNA pull-down assays were performed to explore the interaction between HOTAIR and miR-646. The regulation of miR-646 on nucleophosmin 1 (NPM1) was tested using luciferase reporter assays. MiR-646 expression was significantly decreased both in human EC tissues (n = 23) and cell lines (Ishikawa and HEC-1-A) compared with the control. Moreover, miR-646 expression was negatively related to HOTAIR in human EC tissues (n = 23). Our results also showed that miR-646 overexpression considerably attenuated the E2-promoted viability, migration, and invasion of Ishikawa and HEC-1-A cells in vitro. In addition, HOTAIR was confirmed to regulate the viability, migration, and invasion of EC cells through negative regulating miR-646. More importantly, we also demonstrated that NPM1 was the target of miR-646, and HOTAIR promoted NPM1 expression through interacting with miR-646 in EC cells. Taken together, our findings presented that HOTAIR could regulate NPM1 via interacting with miR-646, thereby governing the viability, migration, and invasion of EC cells.
