Circular RNA (circRNA) is a looped noncoding RNA with a stable structure and tissue-specific expression and widely reported to regulate cancer initiation and progression. However, the circRNA expression patterns and their roles in osteosarcoma initiation and progression are still poorly understood. In this study, we characterized the landscape of circRNAs in osteosarcoma (OS) cell lines, and calculated the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) scores for OS cell lines. The differential expression analysis revealed that the EMT-related genes were significantly upregulated in the OS cell lines with higher metastatic potentials, and some inflammation-related pathways and pathways involved in cell-cell communications were enriched by these upregulated genes. Furthermore, we constructed a circRNA-based competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network, which consisted of 5 circRNAs, 17 miRNAs, and 73 mRNAs. Particularly, hsa_circ_0085360, which had the highest correlation with TRPS1, were characterized by some cancer-related pathways, and TRPS1 and its target gene FGFR3 were closely associated with both event-free survival and overall survival of OS, indicating that hsa_circ_0085360 might have the potential to predict the OS prognosis. In summary, we profiled the circRNA expression patterns in OS, predicted their functionality, and explored the underlying mechanism and prognostic values, which might provide some evidences for OS-related circRNA researches.

Double-stranded DNA of MITOCHONDRIA. In eukaryotes, the mitochondrial GENOME is circular and codes for ribosomal RNAs, transfer RNAs, and about 10 proteins.
Cell lines whose original growing procedure consisted being transferred (T) every 3 days and plated at 300,000 cells per plate (J Cell Biol 17:299-313, 1963). Lines have been developed using several different strains of mice. Tissues are usually fibroblasts derived from mouse embryos but other types and sources have been developed as well. The 3T3 lines are valuable in vitro host systems for oncogenic virus transformation studies, since 3T3 cells possess a high sensitivity to CONTACT INHIBITION.
Any of the covalently closed DNA molecules found in bacteria, many viruses, mitochondria, plastids, and plasmids. Small, polydisperse circular DNA's have also been observed in a number of eukaryotic organisms and are suggested to have homology with chromosomal DNA and the capacity to be inserted into, and excised from, chromosomal DNA. It is a fragment of DNA formed by a process of looping out and deletion, containing a constant region of the mu heavy chain and the 3'-part of the mu switch region. Circular DNA is a normal product of rearrangement among gene segments encoding the variable regions of immunoglobulin light and heavy chains, as well as the T-cell receptor.
