    Long Noncoding RNA H19 Promotes Proliferation and Invasion in Human Glioma Cells by Downregulating miR-152

    Lei Chen, Yuhai Wang, Jianqing He, Chunlei Zhang, Junhui Chen, Dongliang Shi

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.9, pp. 1419-1428, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15178768577951

    Abstract miR-152 and lncRNA H19 have been frequently implicated in various cellular processes including cell proliferation, invasion, angiogenesis, and apoptosis. However, the interaction between miR-152 and H19 in glioma has never been reported. RT-qPCR was used to examine the expression of miR-152 and H19 in human glioma cell lines and normal human astrocytes (NHAs). The interaction between miR-152 and lncRNA H19 was assessed by dual-luciferase reporter assay. MTT assay and Transwell invasion assay were used to determine the proliferation and invasion of U251 and U87 cells. A xenograft tumor experiment was performed to confirm the role… More >

    Abstract Long noncoding RNA CCAL has been reported to promote tumor progression in various human cancers, including hepatocellular carcinoma, osteosarcoma, and colorectal cancer. However, the role of CCAL in papillary thyroid cancer remains largely unknown. In the present study, we found that the expression of CCAL was upregulated in papillary thyroid tumor tissues compared to adjacent normal tissues. Moreover, the expression of CCAL was positively related with papillary thyroid cancer severity and TNM stage and predicated poor prognosis. Besides, we found that knockdown of CCAL significantly inhibited papillary thyroid cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion in More >

    Abstract Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) FEZF1-AS1 was demonstrated to facilitate cell proliferation and migration in some cancers. However, the functions of FEZF1-AS1 and its molecular mechanism in osteosarcoma remain to be elucidated. In our study, we found that the expression of FEZF1-AS1 was upregulated in osteosarcoma samples and cell lines compared with normal tissues or cells. Besides, we showed that the expression levels of FEZF1-AS1 in osteosarcoma patients were positively correlated with tumor metastasis and TNM stage. Additionally, FEZF1-AS1 knockdown inhibited cell proliferation, migration, and invasion in U2OS and MG63 cells, while upregulation had the opposite More >

    Long Noncoding RNA GAS5 Promotes Proliferation, Migration, and Invasion by Regulation of miR-301a in Esophageal Cancer

    Wei Li, Weidong Zhao, Zhaohui Lu, Wen Zhang, Xuan Yang

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.8, pp. 1285-1294, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15166193231711

    Abstract Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) growth arrest-specific transcript 5 (GAS5) has been revealed to be associated with the progression of various cancers. However, the biological roles of GAS5 in esophageal cancer (EC) remain unclear. We aimed to thoroughly explore the functions of GAS5 in EC. The results showed that GAS5 expression was increased in EC cells (ECA109, TE-1, TE-3, and EC9706) compared to SHEE cells. Knockdown of GAS5 decreased cell viability, migration, and invasion and induced apoptosis in EC9706 cells. Moreover, miR-301a appeared to be directly sponged by GAS5, and miR-301a suppression obviously alleviated the protumor More >

    Juhua Zhuang*1, Saifei He*1, Guoyu Wang*, Guangdong Wang*†, Jing Ni*, Suiliang Zhang, Ying Ye*, Wei Xia*

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.8, pp. 1257-1265, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15172756878992

    Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) as one of the most refractory cancers leads to high mortality worldwide. Long noncoding RNAs have been widely acknowledged as important biomarkers and therapeutic targets in HCC. In this study, we investigated the effects of long noncoding RNA FGFR3-AS1 on tumor growth and metastasis in HCC. First, we found that the expression of FGFR3-AS1 was upregulated about threefold in HCC samples and cell lines. We knocked down FGFR3-AS1 in Huh7 and Hep3B cells and found that FGFR3-AS1 knockdown significantly inhibited cell proliferation but induced apoptosis. Moreover, FGFR3-AS1 knockdown led to more HCC More >

    Long Noncoding RNA CRNDE/PRC2 Participated in the Radiotherapy Resistance of Human Lung Adenocarcinoma Through Targeting p21 Expression

    Ming Zhang*, Change Gao, Yi Yang*, Gaofeng Li, Jian Dong§, Yiqin Ai*, Nan Chen, Wenhui Li*

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.8, pp. 1245-1255, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504017X14944585873668

    Abstract Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), a new class of functional regulators involved in human tumorigenesis, have been attracting the increasing attention of researchers. The lncRNA colorectal neoplasia differentially expressed (CRNDE) gene, transcribed from chromosome 16 on the strand opposite the adjacent IRX5 gene, was originally found to be increased in CRC and was reported to be abnormally expressed in many cancers. However, its potential role and the molecular mechanism underlying the radioresistant phenotype formation of lung adenocarcinoma (LAD) remain unclear. In our present study, we identified that CRNDE was significantly upregulated in LAD tissue and radioresistant… More >

    Upregulation of Long Noncoding RNA TUG1 Promotes Bladder Cancer Cell Proliferation, Migration, and Invasion by Inhibiting miR-29c

    Peng Guo*, Guohui Zhang*†, Jialin Meng, Qian He*, Zhihui Li, Yawei Guan

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.7, pp. 1083-1091, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15152085755247

    Abstract Bladder cancer (BC) is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in the world. Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) taurine-upregulated gene 1 (TUG1) plays an important role in the development and progression of numerous cancers, including BC. However, the exact role of TUG1 in modulating BC progression is still poorly known. In this study, we found that TUG1 was upregulated and microRNA-29c (miR-29c) was downregulated in BC tissues and cell lines. Overexpression of TUG1 promoted the cell proliferation of T24 and EJ cells, whereas TUG1 knockdown had the opposite effect. Upregulation of TUG1 obviously facilitated… More >

    Xingquan Zhai, Wei Xu

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.7, pp. 1063-1072, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15152072098476

    Abstract This study aimed to explore the biological functions of long noncoding RNA activated by transforming growth factor-b (lncRNA-ATB) in bladder cancer cells. For the expressions of lncRNA-ATB, miR-126, and KRAS, T24 cells were transfected with their specific vectors/shRNA or mimic/inhibitor. Then cell viability, migration, invasion, and apoptosis as well as the protein levels of apoptosis-related factors and PI3K/AKT and mTOR signal pathways were measured. The relationships of lncRNA-ATB and miR-126 or miR-126 and KRAS were analyzed by Dual-Luciferase Reporter assay. Functional experiments showed that lncRNA-ATB overexpression significantly promoted cell viability, migration, and invasion in T24 More >

    Jian Ding*, Fuqing Wang, Tiangang Xiang, Meng Qiao§

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.7, pp. 1047-1053, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15152037713570

    Abstract The aberrant expression of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) is implicated in cancer development and progression. This study was aimed to investigate the expression and clinical significance of lncRNA NONHSAT129183 in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), and to explore its roles in PTC cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. Our results demonstrate that lncRNA NONHSAT129183 is upregulated in human PTC tissues when compared with that in adjacent noncancerous thyroid tissue. Moreover, its expression is correlated with tumor size, lymph node metastasis, and TNM stage in PTC patients. lncRNA NONHSAT129183 silencing also significantly suppressed cell proliferation, migration, and invasion More >

    Long Noncoding RNA CAT104 Promotes Cell Viability, Migration, and Invasion in Gastric Carcinoma Cells Through Activation of MicroRNA-381-Inhibiting Zinc Finger E-box-Binding Homeobox 1 (ZEB1) Expression

    Gang Yuan, Jingzi Quan, Dongfang Dong, Qunying Wang

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.7, pp. 1037-1046, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504017X15144748428127

    Abstract Gastric carcinoma (GC) remains the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Good biomarkers are of paramount importance for GC therapy. This study aimed to assess the role of long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) CAT104 in GC. We found that CAT104 was highly expressed in human GC NCI-N87, SGC7901, BGC823, BGC803, and AGS cells. Suppression of CAT104 decreased NCI-N87 cell viability, migration, and invasion, but promoted apoptosis. CAT104 knockdown enhanced the expression of microRNA- 381 (miR-381) expression in NCI-N87 cells. miR-381 participated in the regulatory effects of CAT104 on NCI-N87 cell viability, migration, invasion, and apoptosis.
