Abstract
Recent studies suggested that LIM and SH3 protein 1 (LASP-1) is a promising therapeutic target for renal cell cancer (RCC). This study aimed to explore the role of LASP-1 in RCC. For this purpose, LASP-1 expression in RCC tissues was analyzed by immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis. Cell proliferation, migration, invasion, and gene expression were detected by CCK-8 assay, Transwell assay, and Western blot analysis. The results showed that LASP-1 was highly expressed in RCC, and its expression level,t was positively correlated with lymph node metastasis and tumor, nodes, and metastases (TNM) stage. The knockdown of LASP-1 expression significantly inhibited the proliferation of RCC cells, increased the apoptosis rate, and inhibited RCC cell invasion and migration by inhibiting epithelial–mesenchymal transition. We conclude that LASP-1 promotes RCC progression and metastasis and is a promising therapeutic target for RCC.
