LncRNA MRUL Suppressed Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells Proliferation and Invasion by Targeting miR-17-5p/SRSF2 Axis.

ABSTRACT: The two broad histological subtypes of lung cancer are small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which are the leading causes of cancer-related death in the world. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been verified to be critical in the regulation of cancer development. The present study identified and elucidated the regulatory roles of a novel lncRNA MRUL in NSCLC. The results showed that MRUL was overexpressed in NSCLC samples and correlated with the poor prognosis of patients who had NSCLC. Moreover, this research has for the first time demonstrated that MRUL acted as an oncogenetic lncRNA in NSCLC. Knockdown of MRUL considerably repressed NSCLC cell proliferation, invasion, and migration. The bioinformatics analysis showed that MRUL was involved in regulating multiple RNA splicing and proliferation-related biological processes, such as mRNA splicing, RNA splicing, mRNA processing, mRNA 3'-end processing, mRNA splice site selection, and DNA replication. By combining bioinformatics analysis and experimental validation, we found that MRUL regulated NSCLC progression through promoting SRSF2 by sponging miR-17 in NSCLC cells. The discoveries indicated that MRUL could be a therapeutic target and a potential diagnostic for NSCLC.
