Numerous studies have demonstrated that microRNA-21 (miR-21), as an oncogene, is involved in the occurrence of many types of tumor and the sensitivity of tumor cells to chemotherapeutic drugs. In the present study, we investigated whether miR-21 is involved in regulating the sensitivity of the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) cell line CRL2631 to the cyclophosphamide, vincristine, Adriamycin, and prednisone (CHOP) chemotherapeutic regimen. Knockdown of miR-21 with antisense oligonucleotides significantly increased the cytotoxic effects of the CHOP regimen in CRL2631 cells. A luciferase reporter assay showed that PTEN is a target gene of miR-21 in CRL2631 cells, and subsequent experiments demonstrated that miR-21 impacts the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway through the regulation of PTEN, thereby affecting cellular sensitivity to the CHOP chemotherapeutic regimen. Furthermore, knockdown of NF-κB decreased miR-21 expression and sensitized CRL2631 cells to CHOP treatment. These results provide evidence that it may be possible to overcome microRNA-based DLBCL drug resistance.
