Recent data strongly suggests the profound role of miRNAs in cancer progression. Here, we showed miR-126 expression was much lower in HCT116, SW620 and HT-29 colon cancer cells with highly metastatic potential and miR-126 downregulation was more frequent in colorectal cancers with metastasis. Restored miR-126 expression inhibited HT-29 cell growth, cell-cycle progression and invasion. Mechanically, microarray results combined with bioinformatic and experimental analysis demonstrated miR-126 exerted cancer suppressor role via inhibiting RhoA/ROCK signaling pathway. These results suggest miR-126 function as a potential tumor suppressor in colon cancer progression and miR-126/RhoA/ROCK may be a novel candidate for developing rational therapeutic strategies.
