Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is identified as an important regulator involved in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) tumorigenesis. This study aimed to investigate the functional role and underlying mechanism of LINC00662 in OSCC. The expression levels of LINC00662, miR-144-3p, and enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) mRNA were quantified with quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction in OSCC tissues and cell lines. Western blot analysis was used to assay the expression levels of E-cadherin, Vimentin, and EZH2. Cell proliferation, migration, and invasion were monitored by cell counting kit-8 and Transwell assays. Dual-luciferase reporter and RNA immunoprecipitation assays were employed to verify the regulatory relationship between LINC00662 and miR-144-3p. The expression of LINC00662, positively associated with the increased TNM stage and lymph node metastasis of the patients, was up-regulated in OSCC tissues and cells. The overexpression of LINC00662 facilitated the proliferation, migration, and invasion of OSCC cells. MiR-144-3p could bind to LINC00662, and the promoting effect of LINC00662 overexpression was counteracted by miR-144-3p mimic. Moreover, EZH2 expression was negatively regulated by miR-144-3p and positively...Continue Reading

Cadherins and Catenins

Cadherins (named for "calcium-dependent adhesion") are a type of cell adhesion molecule (CAM) that is important in the formation of adherens junctions to bind cells with each other. Catenins are a family of proteins found in complexes with cadherin cell adhesion molecules of animal cells: alpha-catenin can bind to β-catenin and can also bind actin. β-catenin binds the cytoplasmic domain of some cadherins.

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.
