Introduction
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a group of small non-coding RNAs that affect multiple aspects of tumor biology including chemo resistance. miR-181b has been reported to modulate multidrug resistance in non-small cell lung cancer cells. This study was undertaken to determine the role of miR-181b in chemo resistance of small cell lung cancer cells.

Material and methods
This study was undertaken to determine the role of miR-181b in chemoresistance of small cell lung cancer cells with use of qRt-PCR, WB, bioinformatics analysis, and double luciferase reporter system.

Results
Our data showed that miR-181b was significantly downregulated in cisplatin-resistant H446 small cell lung cancer cells, compared to parental cells, compared to parental cells. Ectopic expression of miR-181b inhibited cell proliferation and invasion in cisplatin-resistant H446 cells (p = 0.023). Moreover, overexpression of miR-181b increased the susceptibility of cisplatin-resistant H446 cells to cisplatin. Mechanistic investigations demonstrated that miR-181b inhibited B-cell lymphoma-2 (Bcl-2) expression by binding to the 3'-untranslated region. Overexpression of Bcl-2 reversed miR-181b-mediated chemo sensitization, which is accompanied by a reduced apoptotic response.

Conclusions
Taken together, this work demonstrated that miR-181b might have the ability to overcome chemo resistance of small cell lung cancer cells, and restoration of this miRNA may represent a potential therapeutic strategy for improving chemo sensitivity in small cell lung cancer.
