Glioblastoma is the most common primary malignancy of the adult central nervous system and is associated with a markedly poor prognosis. Elucidating the pathogenesis and molecular changes will assist in further understanding the pathogenesis and progression of the disease and offer novel targets for therapies. The present study demonstrated that the expression level of GK5 was lower in highgrade glioblastoma tissues compared with lowgrade ones and it can promote proliferation in glioblastoma cells. The regulatory mechanism of GK5 in glioblastoma were also investigated. It was revealed that GK5 is a target of miR135b in U87MG glioblastoma cells. Controry to GK5, the expression of miR135b is upregulated in glioblastoma and its expression is positively associated with the grade of the disease. Finally, it was demonstrated that miR135b promoted the proliferation of U87MG cells. Therefore, miR135b may function as an oncogene by inhibiting GK5 in glioblastoma.
