LncRNA TRG-AS1 inhibits bone metastasis of breast cancer by the miR-877-5p/WISP2 axis.TRG-AS1 has been proved to inhibit cancer progression, whereas its effect on bone metastases of breast cancer is unknown. In this study, we determined breast cancer patients with disease free survival is longer in breast cancer patients with high TRG-AS1 expression. Moreover, TRG-AS1 was downregulated in breast cancer tissues and even lower in bone metastatic tumor tissues. Compared with parental breast cancer cell MDA-MB-231, TRG-AS1 expression was downregulated in MDA-MB-231-BO cells with strong bone-metastatic characteristics. Next, the binding sites of miR-877-5p on TRG-AS1 and WISP2 mRNA were predicted and result showed that miR-877-5p could bind to 3'UTR of TRG-AS1 and WISP2. Subsequently, BMMs and MC3T3-E1 cells were cultured in the conditioned media of MDA-MB-231 BO cells transfected with TRG-AS1 overexpression vector, shRNA and/or miR-877-5p mimics or inhibitor and/or overexpression vector and small interfering RNA of WISP2. TRG-AS1 silencing or miR-877-5p overexpression promoted MDA-MB-231 BO cell proliferation and invasion. TRG-AS1 overexpressing reduced TRAP positive cells, decreased TRAP, Cathepsin K, c-Fos, NFATc1 and AREG expression in BMMs, and promoted OPG, Runx2 and Bglap2 expression, and decreased RANKL expression in MC3T3-E1 cells. Silencing WISP2 rescued the effect of TRG-AS1 on BMMs and MC3T3-E1 cells. In vivo results showed that tumor volumes significantly decreased in mice injected with LV-TRG-AS1 transfected MDA-MB-231 cells. TRG-AS1 knockdown markedly reduced the number of TRAP+ cells and the percentage of Ki-67+ cells and decreased E-cadherin expression in xenograft tumor mice. In summary, TRG-AS1 acts an endogenous RNA, inhibited breast cancer bone metastasis by competitively binding with miR-877-5p to upregulate WISP2 expression.
