OBJECTIVE: This study aims to explore the impact of LINC00887 on the malignant progression of glioma via upregulating CCND1.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: LINC00887 and CCND1 levels in glioma patients in different tumor grades or metastasis statuses were detected by quantitative Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR). Kaplan-Meier curves were depicted for analyzing the prognostic potential of LINC00887 in glioma patients. Meanwhile, Pearson correlation test was conducted to assess the expression correlation between LINC00887 and CCND1 in glioma tissues. After knockdown of LINC00887 in LN229 and U251 cells, proliferative abilities were examined by cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8) and 5-Ethynyl-2’- deoxyuridine (EdU) assays. Subcellular distribution of LINC00887 was determined. Thereafter, RNA Binding Protein Immunoprecipitation (RIP) was performed to uncover the interaction between LINC00887 and CCND1. After α-amanitin induction in glioma cells overexpressing LINC00887, RNA degradation of CCND1 was examined at 0, 6, 12 and 24 h, respectively. Finally, the synergistic regulation of both LINC00887 and CCND1 on glioma proliferation was explored by CCK-8 assay.

RESULTS: It was found that LINC00887 was upregulated in glioma tissues, especially in stage III+IV or metastatic glioma cases. Overall survival was remarkably worse in glioma patients expressing a high level of LINC00887 than those with a low level. CCND1 was upregulated in glioma tissues as well, showing a positive correlation to LINC00887. In addition, LINC00887 was mainly distributed in the cytoplasm and interacted with CCND1, and it shortened the half-life of CCND1. Moreover, the knockdown of LINC00887 inhibited glioma cell proliferation, and this inhibitory effect was abolished by overexpression of CCND1.

CONCLUSIONS: LINC00887 is upregulated in glioma tissues, and it aggravates the malignant progression of glioma by upregulating CCND1.
