Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common types of malignant tumors with high recurrence and metastasis rates. Radiotherapy represents a major therapeutic option for HCC patients. However, the efficacy of radiotherapy has been limited due to the development of intrinsic radioresistance of the tumor cells. Small ubiquitin-like modifier 1 pseudogene 3 (SUMO1P3), one member of SUMO pseudogene family, is a novel identified lncRNA that was originally identified to be upregulated in gastric cancer...

BACKGROUND: Angiogenesis is considered as an important process in the development of malignancies and is associated with cancer progression and metastasis. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary tumor of the liver and is recognized as a typical angiogenic tumor. Thus, it is of great importance to study the underlying mechanism of angiogenesis in HCC. The long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) ubiquitin conjugating enzyme E2C pseudogene 3 (UBE2CP3) has been reported as an oncogene that promotes tumor metastasis in HCC...

Aberrant genome-wide hypomethylation and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) dysregulation are associated with hepatocarcinogenesis. However, whether a relationship between the two exists remains largely unknown. S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe)-dependent methylation is a critical factor in genomic methylation. We previously found that SNHG6 lncRNA acted as an oncogene in hepatocarcinogenesis and could be considered a potential prognostic indicator for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Here we verify that SNHG6 leads to genome-wide hypomethylation in hepatoma cells and that SNHG6 negatively correlates with the steady-state SAMe concentration in vivo and in vitro...

Increasing evidence has shown that the lncRNA Nuclear Enriched Abundant Transcript 1 (NEAT1) play important roles in cell proliferation, migration, and invasion in various tumors. In our current study, we concentrated on the biological mechanisms of NEAT1 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development. It was found that NEAT1 was significantly increased in human HCC cell lines including Hep3B, LM3, MHCC97L, SK-hep1, and HepG2 cells compared to the normal human liver cell line LO2. Meanwhile, we observed that hsa-miR-139-5p was greatly decreased in HCC cells, which suggested a negative correlation between NEAT1 and hsa-mir-139-5p...

Recently, it is reported that taurine upregulated gene 1 (TUG1) participates in the tumor progression by acting as a competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) of miRNAs. Nonetheless, whether TUG1 could serve as a ceRNA of miR-144 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) progression remains undefined. Here, our results indicated that there was a marked rise in TUG1 expression in HCC tissues and cells, and downregulation of TUG1 hindered proliferation and migration of HCC cells. Additionally, TUG1 was validated to act as a molecular sponge of miR-144...

The identification of viability-associated long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) might be a promising rationale for new therapeutic approaches in liver cancer. Here, we applied the first RNAi screening approach in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell lines to find viability-associated lncRNAs. Among the multiple identified lncRNAs with a significant impact on HCC cell viability, we selected CASC9 (Cancer Susceptibility 9) due to the strength of its phenotype, expression, and upregulation in HCC versus normal liver. CASC9 regulated viability across multiple HCC cell lines as shown by CRISPR interference, single siRNA- and siPOOL-mediated depletion of CASC9...

Chronic infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) is one of most important risk factors for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Several long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to be involved in the etiology of HBV-related HCC. AX800134 is one recently identified lncRNA associated with HCC. In this study, we validated the upregulated expression of AX800134 in HBV-positive HCC compared with HBV-negative HCC. Furthermore, we found that HBV X protein (HBx) directly triggered AX800134 expression in human hepatoma HepG2 cells...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common cancer around the world, along with high mortality and metastasis rate. Our present study aimed to explore the role of LncRNA HOTAIR in the progression of HCC. Our data showed that HOTAIR was overexpressed in HCC tissues and cell lines (Huh7, Hep3B, HepG2, MHCC97H). Overexpressed HOTAIR promoted invasion and migration of HCC cells (Huh7) by enhancing epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Besides that, miR-23b-3p was predicted to be a target of HOTAIR and decreased expression of miR-23b-3p was observed in HCC tissues and cell lines...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) accounts for a large proportion of cancer-associated mortality worldwide. The functional impact of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in human cancer is not fully understood. Here, we identified a novel oncogenic lncRNA termed lncPARP1, which was significantly upregulated in HCC. Increase of lncPARP1 expression was associated with age, AFP levels, tumor size, recurrence, and poor prognosis of HCC patients. Loss-of-function approaches showed that knockdown of lncPARP1 inhibited proliferation, migration and invasion, while induced apoptosis in HCC cells...

BACKGROUND: Abnormal metabolism, including abnormal lipid metabolism, is a hallmark of cancer cells. Some studies have demonstrated that the lipogenic pathway might promote the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the role of the lipolytic pathway in HCC has not been elucidated. METHODS: We compared levels of adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) in human HCC and healthy liver tissues by real time PCR, western blot and immunohistochemistry. We measured diacylglycerol(DAG) and free fatty acid (FFA) levels in HCC cells driven by the NEAT1-ATGL axis and in HCC tissues...

Accumulating studies supported that lncRNAs played important roles in tumorigenesis. LncRNA HOXA11-AS was a novel lncRNA that has been proved to involved in several tumours. However, the role of HOXA11-AS in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains to be explained. In our study, we showed that HOXA11-AS expression was up-regulated in the HCC tissues, and the higher expression of HOXA11-AS was associated with the advanced stage in the HCC samples. In addition, we indicated that the expression of HOXA11-AS was up-regulated in HCC cell lines (Hep3B, SMMC-7721, MHCC97-H and BEL-7402) compared with normal liver cell lines (HL-7702)...
