Title: Functions of long non-coding RNA LNC11649 in non-small cell lung cancer cells as a reprocessed form of MALAT1
Author: Jun-Zhe Qi, Ting-Ting Zhao, Shu-Shan Qi

Abstract: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have received much attention concerning their expression mechanisms in tumor formation. It is known that lncRNAs are involved in the occurrence, development, and prognosis of various tumors, including lung cancer. In our study, one non-coding RNA, LNC11649 (649 nt in length), was identified in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) by PacBio third-generation sequencing technology. Both Northern blot and quantitative PCR analyses confirmed the presence of LNC11649 in NSCLC tissues and cells with high expression. Its sequence was found to be highly homologous to lncRNA MALAT1. Knocking down MALAT1 could lead to a significant downregulation of LNC11649 content, revealing the possibility that LNC11649 could originate from MALAT1 reprocessing. RNA immunoprecipitation and electrophoretic mobility shift assays confirmed an interaction between LNC11649 and the MSI1 protein. Further experiments revealed that LNC11649 promoted the cytoplasmic distribution of MSI1 through its interaction with MSI1 and then activated the Akt signaling pathway to regulate the proliferation and migration of NSCLC cells. Our study reveals the possibility that LNC11649 plays a cancer-promoting role as a reprocessed form of MALAT1 in NSCLC cells and suggests that the MALAT1/LNC11649/MSI1/Akt regulatory axis becomes a potential therapeutic target for lung cancer.
