Ovarian Cancer (OC) is a highly lethal gynecological cancer which often progresses through acquired resistance against the administered therapy. Cisplatin is a common therapeutic for the treatment of OC patients and therefore it is critical to understand the mechanisms of resistance against this drug. We studied a paired cell line consisting of parental and cisplatin resistant (CR) derivative ES2 OC cells, and found a number of dysregulated lncRNAs, with CHRF being the most significantly upregulated lncRNA in CR ES2 cells. The findings corroborated in human patient samples and CHRF was significantly elevated in OC patients with resistant disease. CHRF was also found to be elevated in patients with liver metastasis. miR-10b was found to be mechanistically involved in CHRF mediated cisplatin resistance. It induced resistance in not only ES2 but also OVCAR and SKOV3 OC cells. Induction of epithelial-to-mesenchymal-transition (EMT) and activation of STAT3 signaling were determined to be the mechanisms underlying the CHRF-miR-10b axis-mediated cisplatin resistance. Down-regulation of CHRF reversed EMT, STAT3 activation and the resulting cisplatin resistance, which could be attenuated by miR-10b. The results were also validated in an in vivo cisplatin resistance model wherein CR cells were associated with increased tumor burden, CHRF downregulation associated with decreased tumor burden and miR-10b again attenuated the CHRF downregulation effects. Our results support a novel role of lncRNA CHRF in cisplatin resistance of OC and establish CHRF-miR-10b signaling as a putative therapeutic target for sensitizing resistant OC cells.
