LINC01234 aggravates cell growth and migration of triple-negative breast cancer by activating the Wnt pathway.

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a common cancer with increasing incidence and mortality in female. Increasing studies have revealed that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are novel molecules regulating tumors. Long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 1234 (LINC01234) has been demonstrated to function as an oncogene in several tumors. However, the role of LINC01234 in TNBC remains unelucidated. Herein, RT-qPCR showed that LINC01234 expression was upregulated in both TNBC tissues and cell lines. Functionally, knockdown of LINC01234 suppressed proliferation, migration, invasion, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process, and promoted apoptosis in TNBC cells. Xenograft mouse models revealed that LINC01234 downregulation inhibited TNBC tumor growth in vivo. Furthermore, LINC01234 was transcriptionally elevated by Sp1 transcription factor (SP1) in TNBC cells. Mechanistically, LINC01234 interacted with miR-525-5p and miR-525-5p targeted MEIS2. Rescue assays manifested that MEIS2 overexpression rescued the cellular processes inhibited by silenced LINC01234. Moreover, we validated that LINC01234 regulated the activation of the Wnt pathway through modulating MEIS2 in TNBC cells. In conclusion, LINC01234 aggravated TNBC cell growt...Continue Reading

Breast Cancer Triple-N

Breast cancer cells have receptors for estrogen, progesterone, HER2 receptors (also called ERBB2). Triple-negative breast cancers do not have any of these receptors. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to triple-negative breast cancers.

Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.

Cell Migration in Cancer and Metastasis

Migration of cancer cells into surrounding tissue and the vasculature is an initial step in tumor metastasis. Discover the latest research on cell migration in cancer and metastasis here.


Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

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.
