Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is an ischemic heart disease with high mortality worldwide. AMI triggers a hypoxic microenvironment and induces extensive myocardial injury, including autophagy and apoptosis. MiRNAs, which are a class of posttranscriptional regulators, have been shown to be involved in the development of ischemic heart diseases. We have previously reported that hypoxia significantly alters the miRNA transcriptome in rat cardiomyoblast cells (H9c2), including miR-27a-5p. In the present study, we further investigated the potential function of miR-27a-5p in the cardiomyocyte response to hypoxia, and showed that miR-27a-5p expression was downregulated in the H9c2 cells at different hypoxia-exposed timepoints and the myocardium of a rat AMI model. Follow-up experiments revealed that miR-27a-5p attenuated hypoxia-induced cardiomyocyte injury by regulating autophagy and apoptosis via Atg7, which partly elucidated the anti-hypoxic injury effects of miR-27a-5p. Taken together, this study shows that miR-27a-5p has a cardioprotective effect on hypoxia-induced H9c2 cell injury, suggesting it may be a novel target for the treatment of hypoxia-related heart diseases.
