Prostate cancer

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)[1]


The expression level of LINC01138 is markedly increased in invasive extraprostatic tumors (pT3a, pT3b and T4 stages) as compared with intraprostatic localized tumors (pT2a , pT2b and pT2c stages).[2]

The LINC01138 locus is frequently amplified in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)[1].


The high level of LINC01138 is correlated with a short biochemical recurrence-free survival times.[2] LINC01138 promotes the proliferation and inhibited apoptosis of PCa.[2] LINC01138 functions as an oncogenes in prostate cancer.[2]

LINC01138 is associated with the malignant features and poor outcomes of HCC patients. LINC01138 acts as an oncogenic driver that promotes cell proliferation, tumorigenicity, tumour invasion and metastasis by physically interacting with arginine methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) and enhancing its protein stability by blocking ubiquitin/proteasome-dependent degradation in HCC[1].
