Long noncoding RNA DLX6-AS1 targets miR-124-3p/CDK4 to accelerate Ewing's sarcoma.

ABSTRACT: Ewing's sarcoma is one of leading cause of malignancy occurred in the children and adolescents worldwide. Given the emerging critical role of long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) in the human cancer, as well as Ewing's sarcoma, we aim to identify the biological role of DLX6-AS1 in the tumorigenesis. Results unveil that DLX6-AS1 expression was increased in the tissue sample and cells. Functionally, the silencing of DLX6-AS1 could repress the proliferation and accelerate the apoptosis of Ewing's sarcoma cells. Mechanically, DLX6-AS1 functioned as the sponge of miR-124-3p, and then miR-124-3p targeted the 3'-UTR of CDK4 mRNA, forming the DLX6-AS1/miR-124-3p/CDK4 regulatory pathway. In conclusion, the critical role of DLX6-AS1 might unveil a potential therapeutic target for Ewing's sarcoma.
