miRNAs can regulate the biological processes, including differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis. DICER and DROSHA are two members of RNase III family, playing pivotal roles in the pathway of miRNAs biogenesis. In this study, we hypothesized that genetic variations of the DICER and DROSHA genes were associated with the bladder cancer risk.

Experimental Design

We performed a case-control study of 685 bladder cancer cases and 730 controls to investigate the association between the seven functional SNPs of DICER and DROSHA genes and bladder cancer risk. We then evaluated the functionality of the important SNPs.


We found that rs10719T>C polymorphism located in 3’ untranslated region UTR of DROSHA gene was associated with the increased risk of bladder cancer. Stratified analysis suggested that rs10719TC-CC genotype can increase risk of bladder cancer among male patients Adjusted OR = 1.34, 95% CI = 1.05-1.70, P = 0.018, and ever smokers 1.56, 1.14-2.14, 0.006, compared with TT genotype. Furthermore, DROSHA rs10719T>C polymorphism was predicted to regulate the binding activity of hsa-miR-27a-b. Luciferase reported gene assay confirmed that rs10719 T to G substitution disrupted the binding site for hsa-miR-27b, resulting the increased levels of DROSHA protein.


Taken together, these findings suggested that DROSHA rs10719T>C polymorphism may be associated with bladder cancer risk in a Chinese population, and hsa-miR-27b can influence the expression of DROSHA protein by binding with 3’UTR.
