The promoting effects of transcriptional factor Yin Yang 1 (YY1) have been confirmed in various tumors, however, its roles in ovarian cancer (OC) progression are still unclear. Here, Kaplan-Meier Plotter analysis was used to determine the correlation between YY1 expression and the survival of OC patients. It was found that YY1 expression was negatively correlated with the overall survival, progression-free survival and post-progression survival of OC patients. Functional experiments indicated that overexpression of YY1 facilitated the stemness of OC cells, while YY1 knockdown reduced it. MiRNAs-based RNA-sequencing analysis showed that miR-99a was the mostly upregulated miRNA in RNA extracted from OC cells with YY1 knockdown. Mechanistic studies revealed that YY1 recruited (Histone deacetylase) HDAC5 to the promoter of miR-99a, and subsequently enhanced miR-99a deacetylation level and decreased miR-99a level. Additionally, overexpression of miR-99a or knockdown of HDAC5 attenuated the promoting effects of YY1 on the stemness of OC cells. This work firstly indicated a novel YY1/miR-99a axis, which promotes the stemness of OC cells.Copyright © 2020 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier Masson SAS.. All rights reserved.
