Summary of "LncRNA NKILA correlates with the malignant status and serves as a tumor-suppressive role in rectal cancer."

NF-κB interacting lncRNA (NKILA) has been found to function as a tumor-suppressive role in various human cancers. However, the role of NKILA in rectal cancer is still unknown. The objective of this study is to investigate the clinical value and biological function of NKILA in rectal cancer. The association between NKILA expression and clinical variables including prognosis was estimated in rectal cancer patients. The gain-of-function study of NKILA in rectal cancer cell was conducted to evaluate the effect of NKILA on cell proliferation, migration, invasion, and NF-κB signaling pathway. The results suggested NKILA expression was decreased in rectal cancer tissues and cells, and correlated with clinical stage, T classification, N classification and M classification. NKILA low-expression was an independent poor prognostic factor in rectal cancer patients. NKILA-inhibited rectal cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion via suppressing NF-κB signaling. In conclusion, NKILA serves as an antioncogenic lncRNA in rectal cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A malignant tumor composed of more than one type of neoplastic tissue. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)

Nuclear antigen with a role in DNA synthesis, DNA repair, and cell cycle progression. PCNA is required for the coordinated synthesis of both leading and lagging strands at the replication fork during DNA replication. PCNA expression correlates with the proliferation activity of several malignant and non-malignant cell types.

An unusual and aggressive tumor of germ-cell origin that reproduces the extraembryonic structures of the early embryo. It is the most common malignant germ cell tumor found in children. It is characterized by a labyrinthine glandular pattern of flat epithelial cells and rounded papillary processes with a central capillary (Schiller-Duval body). The tumor is rarely bilateral. Before the use of combination chemotherapy, the tumor was almost invariably fatal. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1189)

A malignant tumor of the bone which always arises in the medullary tissue, occurring more often in cylindrical bones. The tumor occurs usually before the age of 20, about twice as frequently in males as in females.
