Abstract In order to explore the differentially expressed long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC), the GSE84957 lncRNA expression profile was included in the present study through data mining in the National Center for Biotechnology Information/Gene Expression Omnibus (NCBI/GEO). Then, the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) of LSCC (1646 lncRNAs and 2713 mRNAs, fold change ≥ 2, P ≤ 0.05) were identified from the GSE84957 dataset using bioinformatics analysis. Of the 10 selected differentially expressed lncRNAs, the expression of 7 lncRNAs were verified by qRT-PCR method. Then, LINC00668, a potential carcinogenic lncRNA, was screened out by narrowing down the screening criteria (fold change ≥ 4, P ≤ 0.01). Furthermore, correlation analysis demonstrated that expression levels of LINC00668 were associated with age, pathological differentiation degree, T stage, clinical stage and cervical lymph node metastasis. Moreover, a series of bioinformatics tools and in vitro experiments proved that knockdown of LINC00668 inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion ability of LSCC cells. The present study identified the lncRNAs landscape of LSCC through data mining and bioinformatics analysis, and verified oncogenic LINC00668, which may play important roles in promoting LSCC cells proliferation, migration and invasion.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are aberrantly expressed in several tumors and play important role in tumorigenesis. However, little is known about the role of miR-613 in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). We determined the expression of miR-613 in a panel of 30 LSCC specimens. Compared with the adjacent normal samples, 20 cases of LSCC tissues exhibited decreased expression of miR-613. The average expression of miR-613 in LSCC tissues was lower than in normal samples. Moreover, we demonstrated that e...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are frequently dysregulated in many human cancers. We sought to identify candidate oncogenic lncRNAs in human colon tumors by utilizing RNA sequencing data from 22 colon tumors and 22 adjacent normal colon samples from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). The analysis led to the identification of ~200 differentially expressed lncRNAs. Validation in an independent cohort of normal colon and patient-derived colon cancer cell lines identified a novel lncRNA, lincDUSP, as a...

Abstract Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as important regulators and prognostic markers of multiple cancers. Our aim was to determine functional involvement of lncRNAs in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). In this study, we report that LINC01133 expression is higher in PDAC tissues compared to adjacent non-cancerous tissues, and this overexpression is associated with poorer prognosis among the patients. In vitro, a knockdown of LINC01133 substantially decreased PDAC cell prolif...

Background The functional characterization of non-coding microRNAs (miRNAs) has been shown to be associated with the pathophysiology of the disease, but it is still a challenging task to elucidate the pathogenesis of microRNAs and disease. In addition, the understanding of the role of miRNAs in the development of LSCC still needs further exploration.

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a key role in normal tissue differentiation and cancer development through their tissue-specific expression in the human transcriptome. Recent investigations of macromolecular interactions have shown that tissue-specific lncRNAs form base-pairing interactions with various mRNAs associated with tissue-differentiation, suggesting that tissue specificity is an important factor controlling human lncRNA-mRNA interactions.

Abstract Objectives This study aims to reveal regulatory network of lncRNAs-miRNAs-mRNAs in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) through gene expression data. Material and Methods Differentially expressed lncRNAs, miRNAs and mRNAs (cut-off: False discovery rate (FDR) 1.5) were unveiled by package edgeR of R. Cox regression analysis was performed to screen prognostic factors in OSCC related with overall survival (OS) and relapse-free survival (RFS). Protein-protein interaction (PPI) network was co...

Abstract Recently, long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to have crucial regulatory efficiency in human cancer biology. Long intergenic non-coding RNA 668 (LINC00668) was regarded as an oncogene in multiple cancers. However, the underlying molecular mechanism of LINC00668 in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) has not been studied. In this study, we first demonstrated that LINC00668 expression was up-regulated, which was correlated with tumor progression, and miR-297 down-regulated in...

Yuan et al. show that the MBNL3 splicing factor promotes alternative splicing of the lncRNA-PXN-AS1 antisense transcript of PXN, leading to the stabilization of PXN mRNA and increasing its protein levels to promote liver cancer growth.

Dysregulated expression of long noncoding RNAs has been reported in many types of cancers, indicating that it may play a critical role in tumorigenesis. The long noncoding RNA highly up-regulated in liver cancer (HULC) was first characterized in hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the detailed mechanisms of HULC remain unclear. Here, we demonstrate a novel mechanism by which long noncoding RNA plays oncogenic roles through modulating the phosphorylation status of its interaction protein. First, w...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are reported to be involved in breast cancer progression. Herein, we observed that the expression of Linc00668 was increased in breast cancer compared to normal tissue. The patients with high Linc00668 expression exhibited an association with a higher metastatic risk. We demonstrated that forced expression of Linc00668 enhanced, whereas depletion of Linc00668 diminished invasion and self-renewal of breast cancer cells as well as resistance to doxorubicin (Dox). Fur...

Abstract No longer regarded as junk DNA, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are considered as master regulators of cancer development and metastasis nowadays. Among the recently appreciated roles of these transcripts is their fundamental contribution in the pathogenesis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Notably, lncRNAs may have interactions with some environmental risk factors for this type of cancer. Moreover, a number of studies have verified diagnostic and prognostic values of ln...

Background: Breast cancer is one of the deadliest malignant tumors worldwide. Due to its complex molecular and cellular heterogeneity, the efficacy of existing breast cancer risk prediction models is unsatisfactory. In this study, we developed a new lncRNA model to predict the prognosis of patients with BRCA. Methods: BRCA-related differentially-expressed long non-coding RNA were screened from the Cancer Genome Atlas database. A novel lncRNA model was developed by univariate and multivariate ana...

Background. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), which have little or no ability to encode proteins, have attracted special attention due to their potential role in cancer disease. We aimed to establish a lncRNA signature and a nomogram incorporating the genomic and clinicopathologic factors to improve the accuracy of survival prediction for laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). Methods. A LSCC RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) dataset and the matched clinicopathologic information were downloaded from The ...
Abstract Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been demonstrated to play significant roles in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) progression. Recently, a newly identified lncRNA, LncRNA LINC00668 (LINC00668), was reported to be involved in the regulation of progression of several tumors. However, the expression pattern and biological function of LINC00668 in NSCLC remains largely unclear. In this study, we found that LINC00668 expression was significantly up-regulated in both NSCLC tissues and cell...
Head and neck carcinoma (HNC) is a heterogeneous disease encompassing a variety of tumors according to the origin. Laryngeal cancer (LC) represents one of the most frequent tumors in the head and neck region. Despite clinical studies and advance in treatment, satisfactory curative strategy has not yet been reached. Therefore, there is an urgent need for the identification of specific molecular signatures that better predict the clinical outcomes and markers that serve as suitable therapeutic tar...
