LncRNA ZFPM2-AS1 promotes lung adenocarcinoma progression by interacting with UPF1 to destabilize ZFPM2.

ABSTRACT: Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD), a histological subclass of non-small-cell lung cancer, is globally the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as cancer regulators. Zinc finger protein multitype 2 antisense RNA 1 (ZFPM2-AS1) is an oncogene in gastric cancer, but its functions have not been investigated in LUAD. We showed that ZFPM2-AS1 expression is high in LUAD samples based on GEPIA database (http://gepia.cancer-pku.cn/) and validated ZFPM2-AS1 upregulation in LUAD cell lines. Functionally, ZFPM2-AS1 facilitated proliferation, invasion, and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition of LUAD cells. Thereafter, we found that ZFPM2 was negatively regulated by ZFPM2-AS1, and identified the suppressive effect of ZFPM2 regulation by ZFPM2-AS1 on LUAD progression. Mechanistically, we showed that ZFPM2-AS1 interacted with up-frameshift 1 (UPF1) to regulate mRNA decay of ZFPM2. Rescue assays in vitro and in vivo confirmed that ZFPM2-AS1 regulated LUAD progression and tumor growth through ZFPM2. Taken together, our findings demonstrate a role for the ZFPM2-AS1-UPF1-ZFPM2 axis in LUAD progression, suggesting ZFPM2-AS1 as a new potential target for LUAD treatment.
