miR-138 promotes migration and tube formation of human cytomegalovirus-infected endothelial cells through the SIRT1/p-STAT3 pathway

miR-138 promotes migration and tube formation of human cytomegalovirus-infected endothelial cells... Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) has been reported to be linked to vascular disease through the induction of neovessel formation. We have previously reported that microRNA (miR)-217 and miR-199a-5p enhance endothelial angiogenesis via inhibition of sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) in HCMV-infected human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Here, we found that miR-138 also suppressed the expression of the SIRT1 protein and stimulated phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (p-STAT3). Moreover, the regulation of p-STAT3 expression mediated by SIRT1 was found to promote HCMV-induced angiogenesis. These findings revealed that miR-138 might promote angiogenesis of HCMV-infected HUVECs by activating the SIRT1-mediated p-STAT3 pathway, and this could provide novel insights into HCMV-induced angiogenesis. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) has been reported to be linked to vascular disease through the induction of neovessel formation. We have previously reported that microRNA (miR)-217 and miR-199a-5p enhance endothelial angiogenesis via inhibition of sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) in HCMV-infected human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Here, we found that miR-138 also suppressed the expression of the SIRT1 protein and stimulated phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (p-STAT3). Moreover, the regulation of p-STAT3 expression mediated by SIRT1 was found to promote HCMV-induced angiogenesis. These findings revealed that miR-138 might promote angiogenesis of HCMV-infected HUVECs by activating the SIRT1-mediated p-STAT3 pathway, and this could provide novel insights into HCMV-induced angiogenesis.
