Long noncoding RNA UCA1 promotes proliferation and metastasis of thyroid cancer cells by sponging miR-497-3p

OBJECTIVE: Recently, long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have attracted much attention for their roles in tumor progression. The aim of this study was to investigate the exact role of lncRNA UCA1 in the development of thyroid cancer (TC) and to explore the possible underlying mechanism. PATIENTS AND METHODS: UCA1 expression in both TC cells and tissues … Leggi tutto Long noncoding RNA UCA1 promotes proliferation and metastasis of thyroid cancer cells by sponging miR-497-3p
