摘要： The aberrant expression of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) is implicated in cancer development and progression. This study aimed to investigate the expression and clinical significance of lncRNA NONHSAT129183 in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), and explore its roles in PTC cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. Our results demonstrate that lncRNA NONHSAT129183 is upregulated in human PTC tissues when compared with that in adjacent noncancerous thyroid tissue. Moreover, its expression is correlated with tumor size, lymph node metastasis, and TNM stage in PTC patients. lncRNA NONHSAT129183 silencing also significantly suppressed cell proliferation, migration, and invasion in PTC cell lines. In conclusion, our results suggest that lncRNA NONHSAT129183 plays a critical role in the regulation of PTC cell proliferation, migration, and invasion, providing new insights into PTC pathogenesis.
