    Zhongyi Mu*†1, Dan Dong*1, Ning Wei‡§, Mingli Sun, Wei Wang*, Yue Shao*, Jian Gao*, Ping Yin*, Chenghai Zhao*

    Oncology Research, Vol.27, No.6, pp. 653-661, 2019, DOI:10.3727/096504018X15420748671075

    Abstract The lncRNA AFAP1-AS1, oriented from an antisense direction to the protein-coding gene AFAP1 in the opposite strand, was upregulated in a variety of tumors and associated with poor prognosis, including lung cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and so on. However, the biological role of AFAP1-AS1 in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is still unknown. We observed that AFAP1-AS1 expression was significantly upregulated in ccRCC tissues and that patients with high-level expression of AFAP1-AS1 had a shorter overall survival. Knockdown of AFAP1-AS1 markedly suppressed the progression of proliferation, invasion, migration, and EMT in ccRCC cells. Downregulation of AFAP1-AS1 resulted in… More >

    Xiao-hui Sun*, Wen-jie Fan, Zong-jian An, Yong Sun

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.1, pp. 95-102, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504019X15742472027401

    Abstract Long noncoding RNA CRNDE (CRNDE) recently emerged as a carcinogenic promoter in various cancers including medulloblastoma. However, the functions and molecular mechanisms of CRNDE to the acquired drug resistance of medulloblastoma are still unclear. The transcript levels of CRNDE were examined in four medulloblastoma cell lines exposed to cisplatin treatment, and IC50 values were calculated. Effects of CRNDE knockdown or miR-29c-3p overexpression on cell viability, colony formation, apoptosis, migration, and invasion were assessed using the CCK-8, colony formation assay, flow cytometry, and Transwell assays, respectively. RNA pulldown and RNA-binding protein immunoprecipitation (RIP) were performed to confirm the molecular interactions between… More >

    Jing Li*†, Lian-mei Zhao, Cong Zhang, Meng Li§, Bo Gao, Xu-hua Hu, Jian Cao, Gui-ying Wang

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.1, pp. 51-63, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504019X15619783964700

    Abstract Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) participate in and regulate the biological process of colorectal cancer (CRC) progression. Our previous research identified differentially expressed lncRNAs in 10 CRC tissues and 10 matched nontumor tissues by next-generation sequencing (NGS). In this study, we identified an lncRNA, FEZF1 antisense RNA 1 (FEZF1-AS1), and further explored its function and mechanism in CRC. We verified that FEZF1-AS1 is highly expressed in CRC tissues and cell lines. Through functional experiments, we found that reduced levels of FEZF1-AS1 significantly suppressed CRC cell migration, invasion, and proliferation and inhibited tumor growth in vivo. Mechanistically, we discovered that reduced levels… More >

    RPSAP52 lncRNA Inhibits p21Waf1/CIP Expression by Interacting With the RNA Binding Protein HuR

    Daniela D’Angelo*, Claudio Arra, Alfredo Fusco*

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.2, pp. 191-201, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504019X15761465603129

    Abstract Long noncoding RNAs have been recently demonstrated to have an important role in fundamental biological processes, and their deregulated expression has been found in several human neoplasias. Our group has recently reported a drastic overexpression of the long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) RPSAP52 (ribosomal protein SA pseudogene 52) in pituitary adenomas. We have shown that this lncRNA increased cell proliferation by upregulating the expression of the chromatinic proteins HMGA1 and HMGA2, functioning as a competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) through competitively binding to microRNA-15a (miR-15a), miR-15b, and miR-16. The aim of this work was to identify further mechanisms by which RPSAP52 overexpression… More >

    Abstract Hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (HSCC) remains one of the most lethal malignancies in the head and neck. Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) HOXA11-AS is proven to function as an oncogene and a therapeutic target in various tumors. Our previous study and others have demonstrated that HOXA11-AS is one of the most upregulated lncRNAs in HSCC. However, the role of HOXA11-AS in HSCC has not yet been identified. The current study demonstrated that the expression of HOXA11-AS was significantly upregulated in HSCC tumors and was positively associated with lymph node metastasis. Moreover, functional experiments revealed that HOXA11-AS knockdown suppressed the proliferation and… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.5, pp. 551-552, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504020X16032056440085

    Abstract Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) colon cancer-associated transcript 2 (CCAT2) has been demonstrated to play an important role in diverse tumorigenesis. However, the biological function of lncRNAs in glioma is still unknown. In this study, we found that lncRNA CCAT2 was overexpressed in glioma tissues and cell lines and associated with tumor grade and size. Furthermore, patients with high levels of lncRNA CCAT2 had poorer survival than those with lower levels of lncRNA CCAT2. Knocking down lncRNA CCAT2 expression significantly suppressed the glioma cell growth, migration, and invasion, as well as induced early apoptosis of glioma cells in vitro. Moreover, lncRNA… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.6, pp. 683-684, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504021X16137463165433

    Abstract Glioma is the most common and lethal malignant intracranial tumor. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been identified as pivotal regulators in the tumorigenesis of glioma. However, the role of lncRNA urothelial carcinoma-associated 1 (UCA1) in glioma genesis is still unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate the underlying function of UCA1 on glioma genesis. The results demonstrated that UCA1 was upregulated in glioma tissue and indicated a poor prognosis. UCA1 knockdown induced by si-UCA1 significantly suppressed the proliferative, migrative, and invasive activities of glioma cell lines (U87 and U251). Bioinformatics analysis and luciferase reporter assay verified the complementary… More >

    Abstract Accumulating evidence has indicated that long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) PlncRNA-1 plays an important regulatory role in cancers. However, the expression and biological functions of PlncRNA-1 in colorectal cancer (CRC) are still unclear. In the present study, we determined the expression of PlncRNA-1 in CRC and explored the function of PlncRNA-1 on CRC cell progression. The results showed that PlncRNA-1 was significantly increased in CRC tissues and cell lines; high PlncRNA-1 expression was associated with depth of invasion, lymph node metastasis, and TNM stage of CRC patients. Kaplan–Meier curve analysis showed that patients with high PlncRNA-1 expression had a poor overall… More >
