Abstract

Purpose: Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to be associated with the growth and progression of numerous cancers. The aim of this study was to explore the potential function and molecular mechanism of lncRNA ENST00000489676 in the proliferation and invasion of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC).

Methods: QRT-PCR (quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction) was used to determine the levels of ENST00000489676. CCK-8 (Cell Counting Kit-8) assay and colony formation assay were performed to detect the cell proliferation. Flow cytometry was used to analyze the cell cycle. Transwell and scratch assay were performed to detect the migration and invasion ability.

Results: The expression of ENST00000489676 was significantly overexpressed in TPC1 compared to KTC1 cell lines. When ENST00000489676 expression was knocked down, the proliferation, migration and invasion ability as well as cell cycle were all promoted in PTC cell lines, while those abilities were all suppressed when ENST00000489676 overexpressed. Overexpression of ENST00000489676 could inhibit cell proliferation, migration and invasion in vitro. Moreover, ENST00000489676 may mediate tumor suppression in PTC cells through suppressing miR-922.

Conclusions: ENST00000489676 negatively regulated the proliferation, migration invasion and cell cycle of PTC. The overexpression of ENST00000489676 inhibited the progression of PTC through suppressing miR-922. ENST00000489676 could be act as a novel diagnosis marker and a potential therapeutic target for PTC.
