Summary of "LncRNA CASC11 promotes TGF-β1, increases cancer cell stemness and predicts postoperative survival in small cell lung cancer."

LncRNA CASC11 is a recently identified oncogenic lncRNA in colorectal cancer. This study aimed to investigate the role of lncRNA CASC11 in small cell lung cancer (SCLC). In the present study, expression levels of CASC11 and TGF-β1 were found to be positively and significantly correlated with the percentage of CDD133+ cells of SCLC cell lines. Plasma CASC11 and TGF-β1 were upregulated and positively correlated in SCLC patients, but not in healthy controls. Upregulation of plasma CASC11 and TGF-β1 predicted poor survival of SCLC patients. Overexpression of CASC11 and TGF-β1 also resulted in the increased percentage of CDD133+ cells of SCLC cell lines, while TGF-β inhibitor attenuated the effects of CASC11 overexpression. CASC11 overexpression mediated the upregulation of TGF-β1 in SCLC cells, while treatment with exogenous TGF-β1 showed no significant effect on CASC11. Therefore, lncRNA CASC11 promotes TGF-β1, increases cancer cell stemness and predicts postoperative survival in SCLC.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A meshwork-like substance found within the extracellular space and in association with the basement membrane of the cell surface. It promotes cellular proliferation and provides a supporting structure to which cells or cell lysates in culture dishes adhere.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
