Long noncoding RNA FGF14-AS2 inhibits breast cancer metastasis by regulating the miR-370-3p/FGF14 axis

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as important regulators in cancers, including breast cancer. However, the overall biological roles and clinical significance of most lncRNAs are not fully understood. This study aimed to elucidate the potential role of a novel lncRNA FGF14-AS2 and the mechanisms underlying metastasis in breast cancer. The lncRNA FGF14-AS2 was significantly downregulated in breast cancer tissues; patients with lower FGF14-AS2 expression had advanced clinical stage. In vitro and in vivo assays of FGF14-AS2 alterations revealed a complex integrated phenotype affecting breast cancer cell migration, invasion, and tumor metastasis. Mechanistically, FGF14-AS2 functioned as a competing endogenous RNA of miR-370-3p, thereby leading to the activation of its coding counterpart, FGF14. Clinically, we observed increased miR-370-3p expression in breast cancer tissues, whereas FGF14 expression was decreased in breast cancer tissues compared to the adjacent normal breast tissues. FGF14-AS2 expression was significantly negatively correlated with miR-370-3p expression, and correlated positively to FGF14 expression. Collectively, our findings support a model in which the FGF14-AS2/miR-370-3p/FGF14 axis is a critical regu...Continue Reading
