This study investigated the function of HOTAIR in the growth and apoptosis of OS MG-63 cell line in vitro and further clarified its mechanism. The expression levels of HOTAIR in OS MG-63 cell line and normal osteoblast hFOB1.19 cell line were determined by RT-PCR, respectively. The growth and apoptosis of MG-63 cells in vitro were investigated by MTT assay and flow cytometry assay after HOTAIR was knocked down with retroviral vector construction. And the expression levels of cell growth and apoptosis related factors TGF-β, p53, Bcl-2, and TNF-α were determined to clarify the mechanism...

Recent studies have shown that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have critical roles in tumorigenesis, including osteosarcoma. The lncRNA taurine-upregulated gene 1 (TUG1) was reported to be involved in the progression of osteosarcoma. Here, we investigated the role of TUG1 in osteosarcoma cells and the underlying mechanism. TUG1 expression was measured in osteosarcoma cell lines and human normal osteoblast cells by quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). The effects of TUG1 on osteosarcoma cells were studied by RNA interference in vitro and in vivo...

HNF1A-antisense 1 (HNF1A-AS1), a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), is associated with metastasis and is an independent prognostic factor for lung cancer. Recent studies demonstrated that HNF1A-AS1 play important roles in cacinogenesis. However, the exact effects and molecular mechanisms of HNF1A-AS1 in osteosarcoma (OS) progression is still unclear. In the present study, we found that HNF1A-AS1 was markedly up-regulated in OS tissues compared to their adjacent non-tumor tissues. HNF1A-AS1 expression levels were positively associated with the clinical stage, distant metastasis, and reduced overall survival of OS patients...

BACKGROUND: LncRNA hypoxia-inducible factor-2α (HIF-2α) promoter upstream transcript (HIF2PUT) functions as a novel regulatory factor of osteosarcoma stem cells partly by controlling HIF-2α expression. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical significance of HIF-2α and HIF2PUT in human osteosarcoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Quantitative real-time PCR was performed to detect the expression levels of HIF-2α mRNA and HIF2PUT in 82 surgical specimens of primary osteosarcoma and matched non-cancerous bone tissues...

Chemotherapeutic insensitivity remains a major obstacle to osteosarcoma treatment. Recently, increasing evidence has suggested that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play an essential role in tumourigenesis. However, the potential biological roles and regulatory mechanisms of novel lncRNAs in response to cisplatin treatment are poorly understood. Here, we found that lncRNA LINC00161 was induced by cisplatin in osteosarcoma cells. Elevated LINC00161 increased cisplatin-induced apoptosis and reversed the cisplatin-resistant phenotype of osteosarcoma cells by upregulating IFIT2...

Despite great advances have been made in the understanding of biology of osteosarcoma, the molecular mechanisms involved in osteosarcoma tumorigenesis and progression are still largely unknown. Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) is a new type of RNA molecule, which plays pivotal roles in many tumors. lncRNA BCAR4 has been identified as an oncogenetic lncRNA involved in the progression of breast cancer. However, the functions and clinical significances of BCAR4 in osteosarcoma are unknown now. In this study, we found that BCAR4 was significantly upregulated in osteosarcoma tissues...

Metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) is a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) that contributes to the initiation and development of many solid tumors, including osteosarcoma (OS). Here, we showed that MALAT1 was increased in human OS cell lines and tissues and promoted OS cell growth, while MALAT1 knockdown suppressed OS cell growth. We also detected downregulation of MIR376A, a suppressor of OS growth, and upregulation of TGFA, a promoter of OS growth, in OS tissues. TGFA expression was positively correlated with MALAT1 expression, and both were negatively correlated with MIR376A expression...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been identified as oncogenes or tumor suppressors that are involved in tumorigenesis and chemotherapy resistance. HOTTIP is located at the 5' tip of the HOXA locus and coordinates the activation of multiple 5' HOXA genes, which plays an important role in multiple cancers. However, its biological role in the development of the chemoresistance phenotype of osteosarcoma (OS) is still unknown. In this study, we explored the roles of lncRNA HOTTIP in the initiation and chemoresistance of OS...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a group greater than 200 nucleotides in length. An increasing number of studies has shown that lncRNAs play important roles in diverse cellular processes, including proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, invasion and chromatin remodelling. In this regard, deregulation of lncRNAs has been documented in human cancers. TUG1 is a recently identified oncogenic lncRNA whose aberrant upregulation has been detected in different types of cancer, including B-cell malignancies, oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma, bladder cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma and osteosarcoma...

Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common primary malignant bone tumor in adolescents and young adults. However, the essential mechanisms underlying osteosarcomagenesis remain obscure. The HOTAIR, a well-known long noncoding RNA (lncRNA), is involved in pathogenesis and progress of multiple tumors. To reveal the potential role of lncRNA HOTAIR in OS carcinogenesis, we conducted a two-stage, case-control study among Chinese population with 900 OS cases and 900 controls to evaluated associations of its genetic variants with OS risk...

Osteosarcoma is the most common malignant tumor of bone. Recent studies have proven long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important roles in the tumorigenesis and progression of cancer. However, few lncRNAs have been investigated in osteosarcoma. Here, we reported a novel lncRNA, tumor suppressor candidate 7 (TUSC7), was significantly downregulated in osteosarcoma tissues compared with paired non-tumor tissues and low expression of TUSC7 indicated poor survival (HR = 0.313, 95 % confidence interval (CI) 0...
