Abstract Analysis of the microRNA transcriptome following dexamethasone treatment of the acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) cell line RS4;11 showed a global down-regulation of microRNA levels. MIR17HG was rapidly down-regulated following treatment, with ChIP analysis demonstrating the promoter to be a direct target of GC-transcriptional repression and revealing the miR17-92 cluster as a prime target for dexamethasone-induced repression. The loss of miR17 family expression and concomitant increases in the miR17 target Bim occurred in an additional ALL cell line SUP-B15 but not in the dexamethasone-resistant REH Alteration of miR17 levels through upregulation or inhibition resulted in the decrease and increase, respectively, in Bim protein levels and dexamethasone-induced cell death. Primary ex vivo ALL cells that underwent apoptosis induced by dexamethasone also down-regulated miR17 levels. Thus, down-regulation of miR17 plays an important role in glucocorticoid-induced cell death suggesting that targeting miR17 may improve the current ALL combination therapy.
