As one of the commonest gynecological malignancies in the world, cervical cancer brings great threat for public health. Long non-coding RNAs (LncRNAs) have been proved to be closely related to the progression of various cancers, including cervical cancer. As a tumor promoter, lncRNA XIST has been reported in various malignant tumors. In this study, we aim to explore the specific mechanism and biological function of XIST in cervical cancer. At first, the expression levels of XIST were examined in both tissues and cell lines with qRT-PCR. XIST was extremely overexpressed in cervical cancer tissues and cell lines. Kaplan Meier method was then applied to analyze the correlation between XIST expression and overall survival of cervical cancer patients. Loss-of- function assays were designed and conducted to verify the oncogenic function of XIST on cervical cancer progression. Additionally, the results of mechanistic experiments indicated that XIST upregulated Fus through competitively binding with miR-200a. Finally, rescue assays were conducted to demonstrate the regulatory function of XIST-miR-200a-Fus axis in cervical cancer progression. Collectively, XIST served as a ceRNA in cervical cancer progression through modulating miR-200a/Fus axis.

Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) X-inactive specific transcript (XIST) was reportedly to be tightly associated with tumorigenesis and progression of multiple cancers. However, the expression, biological f...
Little is known about the role of long non-coding RNA XIST in the development of colon cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the levels of XIST in colon cancer, and explore its under...
What is the central question of this study? Up-regulation of lncRNA XIST in injured podocytes and membranous nephropathy has been noted, but its implication in membranous nephropathy pathogenesis has ...
Cervical cancer is a common tumor in gynecological malignancies. Recent studies showed that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a key role in tumorigenesis and development. LncRNA nuclear-rich transcr...
X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) is established in preimplantation embryos in mice. Prior to the establishment of XCI, expression of the long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) Xist is essential. Xist expression i...
This study aims to analyze the expression of micro-RNA (miRNA) and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) by next-generation sequencing in patients with high grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) and ...
Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of morbidity and death in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The mechanisms linking impaired renal fun...
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from antigens may make the body build an immune response to kill abnormal cervical cells and may be effective in preventing cervical cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized p...
Infection with Human Papillomavirus high-risk Human (HR-HPV) is the main factor of risk of cancer of the cervix. Recent studies show that cancers linked to infection with HR-HPV are associ...
High-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) are involved in cervical cancer development. Integration of HR-HPV DNA in cellular genomes is considered as a major event in the cervical cancer dev...
Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
A heterogeneous group of compounds derived from rearrangements, oxidation, and cross-linking reactions that follow from non-enzymatic glycation of amino groups in proteins. They are also know as Maillard products. Their accumulation in vivo accelerates under hyperglycemic, oxidative, or inflammatory conditions. Heat also accelerates the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) such seen with the browning of food during cooking under or over high heat.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck.
