Background: The regulatory network of competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) affects tumorigenesis. In this study, we aimed to investigate the mechanism by which long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) HOXA-AS2 promotes prostate cancer (PCa) progression. Methods: The expression levels of HOXA-AS2, miR-885-5p, and KDM5B in PCa tissues and cell lines were evaluated by qRT-PCR or western blotting. CCK-8 assay, caspase-3 activity assay, flow cytometry, and scratch test revealed changes in cell proliferation, caspase-3 activity, apoptosis, and migration, respectively. Luciferase and radioimmunoprecipitation assays were used to evaluate the correlation among HOXA-AS2, miR-885-5p, and KDM5B expression profiles. Results: HOXA-AS2 expression level was elevated in PCa tissues and cells. Silencing of HOXA-AS2 suppressed proliferation and migration and facilitated apoptosis in PCa cells. HOXA-AS2 competitively adsorbed miR-885-5p, thereby blocking the effect of HOXA-AS2 knockdown by the miR-885-5p inhibitor in PCa cells. Moreover, KDM5B, a target of miR-885-5p, neutralized the function of miR-885-5p in PCa cells. Conclusions: This study revealed a potential ceRNA regulatory pathway in which HOXA-AS2 affects KDM5B expression levels by sponging miR-885-5p to promote PCa development and progression.
