Previous studies reported that miR-433 exerts function widely in human tumorigenesis and development. Here, we further investigate the potential role of miR-433 in glioma. Quantitative real-time PCR demonstrated that miR-433-3p and miR-433-5p were low expressed in glioma tissues and cell lines. Functional studies suggested that the overexpression of miR-433-3p suppressed proliferation, induced apoptosis and inhibited invasion and migration of human glioma cells. But the growth and metastasis of glioma cells were not significantly influenced by overexpression of miR-433-5p. In a xenograft model, we also showed that miR-433-3p had an inhibitory effect on the growth of glioma. Bioinformatics coupled with luciferase and western blot assays revealed that CREB is a direct target of miR-433-3p, and the overexpression of CREB can rescue the phenotype changes induced by miR-433-3p overexpression. Besides, miR-433-3p could increase chemosensitivity of glioma to temozolomide by targeting CREB in vitro and in vivo. Taken together, these results suggest that miR-433-3p may function as a potential marker in diagnostic and therapeutic target for glioma.
