Human osteosarcoma (HOS) is the most common malignancy in children and adolescents and has a heterogeneous presentation and high mortality. Previous studies have shown that microRNAs contribute to RNA silencing and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Here, we showed that significantly increased expression of miR-765 with or without CDDP (Cisplatin) down-regulates APE1 expression and angiogenesis-related markers (VEGF, FGF2, TGFβ, and CD34). Further investigation showed that miR-765 modulates osteosarcoma cell migration and angiogenesis following treatment with cisplatin in vitro and in vivo. MiR-765 increases the anti-angiogenic effect of CDDP in human osteosarcoma. Elucidation of the mechanism of the miR-765-APE1 axis in tumor progression of HOS will be beneficial in identifying biomarkers and therapeutic target of osteosarcoma.
