Long Non-Coding RNA STARD13-AS Suppresses Cell Proliferation And Metastasis In Colorectal Cancer.

ABSTRACT: Background:Dysregulation of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) is closely related with the progression of cancer in humans. The functional and regulatory roles of lncRNAs in colorectal cancer (CRC) are still largely unclear. The purpose of this study is to explore the function of lncRNA STARD13-AS in CRC. Methods:The bioinformatics tool "GEPIA" was used to predict the potential expression of STARD13-AS in CRC. qRT-PCR was used to evaluate the relative expression level of STARD13-AS in CRC cells lines and tissues samples. The functional involvement of STARD13-AS in the CRC cells was assessed using MTT assay, ?ow cytometry, and Transwell assay. The expression levels of cyclin D, cyclin E, E-cadherin, N-cadherin, and vimentin were assessed using Western blot. Results:Bioinformatics prediction and qRT-PCR results showed that STARD13-AS expression was decreased in CRC tissues. Patients with low STARD13-AS expression exhibited distant and lymphatic metastasis as well as enhancement in tumor size. STARD13-AS expression was downregulated in CRC cell lines compared to normal human colon mucosal epithelial cell line NCM460 and STARD13-AS expression in SW620 and LoVo cell lines was lowest. Moreover, we observed that while STARD13-AS overexpression suppressed the cell cycle, proliferation, migration, and invasion, while promoted apoptosis both in LoVo and SW620 cells. In addition, STARD13-AS overexpression inhibited Cyclin E, Cyclin D, N-cadherin and vimentin expression, and promoted E-cadherin expression both in LoVo and SW620 cells. Conclusion:Expression of STARD13-AS suppresses cell proliferation and metastasis in CRC, suggesting that STARD13-AS might act as a potential target for CRC treatment.
