LncRNA FAL1 has been demonstrated to play an important role in promoting carcinogenesis via the ceRNA mechanism in several types of cancer. However, the role and the mechanism of lncRNA FAL1 in CRC remain unclear. Here our results demonstrate that lncRNA FAL1 is markedly upregulated in CRC tissues and cells, and lncRNA FAL1 promotes proliferation ability, migration and invasion in CRC cells. Additionally, we demonstrate that lncRNA FAL1 acts as a sponge of miR-637, which functions as a suppressor via targeting and downregulation of NUPR1 expression. Moreover, we demonstrate that lncRNA FAL1 promotes carcinogenesis of CRC cells via regulation of the miR-637/NUPR1 pathway. Taken together, our findings underscore the crucial roles of lncRNA FAL1 in CRC carcinogenesis and its potential prognostic and therapeutic value.

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.

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.
