Nobiletin is a polymethoxylated flavone present in citrus fruits, which has been reported to have inhibitory effects on tumorigenesis of cancers. However, the biological function of nobiletin in breast cancer (BC) is largely unknown. To investigate the effect of nobiletin on growth of BC cells, the cell viability of BC was measured by MTT assay. In addition, gene and protein expressions were detected by qRT-PCR and western blot, respectively. The apoptosis and pyroptosis of BC cells were tested by flow cytometry. Finally, the correlation between miR-200b and JAZF1 was detected by dual luciferase report. The data indicated that nobiletin inhibited the proliferation of BC cells in a dose-dependent manner. Moreover, miR-200b mimics-induced pyroptosis of BC cells was further increased by nobiletin. Meanwhile, JAZF1 was found to be the target of miR-200b. Moreover, nobiletin induced apoptosis and pyroptosis of BC cells via miR-200b/JAZF1/NF-κB axis. In conclusion, nobiletin inhibited the tumorigenesis of BC via regulation of miR-200b/JAZF1 axis. Thus, nobiletin might serve as a new agent for the treatment of BC.
