Recent improvements in molecular treatment and gene therapy led to discovering novel cancer remedies. Antisense LNA GapmeRs is a state-of-the-art molecular research field for diagnosing and treating various cancer types. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous hematopoietic malignancy defined by the rapid accumulation and malignant proliferation of immature myeloid progenitors. SOX12 is a new potential target for acute myeloid leukemia.  In this study, SOX12 was blocked by antisense LNA GapmeRs (ALG) in human AML cell lines (KG1 and M07e). Cells were transfected with Gapmer anti-SOX12 at 24, 48, and 72 h post-transfection. Transfection efficiency was assessed by a fluorescent microscope. Furthermore, evaluation of SOX12, TWIST1, CTNNB1, CASP3, and CASP9 expression was performed by quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Cell viability was determined by MTT assay. SOX12 expression was decreased remarkably in the ALG group. Moreover, SOX12 knockdown was associated with a decrease in TWIST1 and CTNNB1 expression. Besides, downregulation of SOX12 in both cell lines could induce apoptosis, probably through upregulation of CASP3 and CASP9. The findings reveal that SOX12 knockdown could be a new target for reducing AML cells proliferation through antisense therapy approach.
