LncRNA RP11-190D6.2 is the antisense transcript of protein-coding gene WWOX (WW domain-containing oxidoreductase) .
RP11-190D6.2 may play a pivotal role in the regulation of tumor metastasis . RP11-190D6.2 expression is positively correlated with WWOX expression (R=0.45519, P<0.00777), and WWOX is linked with poor prognosis in numerous cancers, including epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) . RP11-190D6.2 overexpression inhibits proliferation, migration, and invasion abilities in HO8910-PM cells, whereas RP11-190D6.2 knockdown in HEY-A8 cells shows the opposite effect .
Patients exhibiting high WWOX‑AS1 expression demonstrated a greater overall survival compared with patients exhibiting low WWOX‑AS1 expression. WWOX‑AS1 overexpression inhibited the proliferation, migration, and invasion of MG63 cells and knockdown of WWOX‑AS1 enhanced the proliferation, migration, and invasion of MG63 cells in SAOS2 cells.
RP11-190D6.2 is restored by 5-aza-2′-deoxycytidine treatment in Epithelial ovarian cancer .
Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) 
Compared with the matched non-tumor tissues, the expression level of RP11-190D6.2 in tumor tissues is markedly decreased. Meanwhile, the expression of RP11-190D6.2 is remarkably downregulated in tumors with higher Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage (III/IV) compared with tumors with lower FIGO stage(I/II) .
WWOX‑AS1 expression was downregulated in osteosarcoma tissues. WWOX‑AS1 and WWOX expression were positively correlated in MG63 and SAOS2 cells .
