LncRNAs have been shown to play essential roles in bladder cancer (BC) progress. Our microarrays of clinical samples firstly screened that lncRNA muscleblind-like 1 antisense RNA 1 (MBNL1-AS1) was poorly expressed in BC tissues. However, its biological function in BC remains not well understood. Here we examined the clinical correlations with MBNL1-AS1 in BC patients. Then, 5673 and T24 cell lines were employed to investigate the role of MBNL1-AS1 in the proliferation and apoptosis of BC cells in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, miR-135a-5p (miR-135a)/PHLPP2/FOXO1 axis was focused to explore its regulatory mechanism in BC. The results showed that MBNL1-AS1 was significantly downregulated in bladder tumor tissues, and associated with BC progression. In vitro, MBNL1-AS1 knockdown increased the number of viable cells and bromodeoxyuridine-positive cells, accelerated cell cycle, and dysregulated proliferative regulators (Ki67, p21, p27, and Cyclin D1) in BC cells. The apoptotic cells and the cleavages of caspase-3/9 were reduced in MBNL1-AS1-silenced BC cells. Overexpression of MBNL1-AS1 had opposite effects on BC cell proliferation and apoptosis. Moreover miR-135a was demonstrated to interact with MBNL1-AS1, and inhibiting miR-135a reversed the effects of shMBNL1-AS1 on BC cells. The downstream effectors (PHLPP2 and FOXO1) were positively regulated by MBNL1-AS1, but negatively regulated by miR-135a. Similar results were also observed in xenograft tumors. In conclusion, this study firstly suggests that MBNL1-AS1 acts as a tumor suppressor of BC by targeting miR-135a/PHLPP2/FOXO1 axis, providing a novel insight for BC diagnosis and treatment.
