To clarify the role of LINC00675 in affecting the progression of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) and its potential mechanism, thus providing effective hallmarks and therapeutic targets for the clinical treatment of ccRCC.
Differentially expressed long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in renal epithelial tissues and ccRCC tissues were searched by analyzing the dataset downloaded from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and LINC00675 was selected. LINC00675 level in ccRCC cell lines was determined by quantitative Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR). Overexpression model of LINC00675 model in 786-O and 769-P cells was constructed by the transfection of pcDNA3.1(+)-LINC00675 (LV-LINC00675). Changes in proliferative, migratory, and invasive capacities of 786-O and 769-P cells overexpressing LINC00675 were assessed. At last, relative levels of β-catenin, Vimentin, and N-cadherin in ccRCC cells overexpressing LINC00675 were detected by qRT-PCR and Western blot.
LINC00675 was downregulated in ccRCC tissues and cell lines. Overexpression of LINC00675 attenuated proliferative, migratory, and invasive capacities of 786-O and 769-P cells. Downregulation in β-catenin after overexpression of LINC00675, while Vimentin and N-cadherin levels did not change.
LINC00675 is downregulated in ccRCC. Overexpression of LINC00675 attenuates ccRCC to proliferate, migrate, and invade by activating the Wnt/β-catenin pathway.
