      Many studies have shown that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are implicated in cancer progress including lung cancer. In our previous studies, we screened the differentially expressed lncRNAs between lung adenocarcinoma with lymph node metastasis and lung adenocarcinoma without lymph node metastasis by microarray analysis. XLOC_000090, an lncRNA without a known function, was identified. Here, we investigated the functions of XLOC_000090 in lung cancer.

      The expression of XLOC_000090 was detected by qRT-PCR in 96 pairs of NSCLC tissues and the adjacent normal lung tissues. Then, we investigated the correlation between XLOC_000090 expression and clinicopathological variables and prognosis. Cell invasion and migration assay was used to detect cell invasion and migration ability in vitro. Murine model of lung cancer was used to detect the effect of XLOC_000090 on pulmonary metastasis in vivo. Dual luciferase reporter assay was used to determine the direct binding between XLOC_000090 and miR-4505.

      Compared with normal lung tissues, XLOC_000090 expression was higher in NSCLC tissues (P<0.05). XLOC_000090 expression was associated with lymph node metastasis (P<0.05) and pathological stage (P<0.05). Patients with high XLOC_000090 expression exhibited significantly poorer disease-free survival and overall survival (P<0.05). XLOC_000090 overexpression increased tumor cell migration and invasion ability, whereas downregulation of XLOC_000090 expression decreased tumor cell migration and invasion ability in both A549 and Calu3 lung cancer cells. Murine model of lung cancer also showed that XLOC_000090 promoted metastasis of lung cancer cells in vivo. Furthermore, a potential XLOC_000090-targeting miRNA, miR-4505, was identified by ceRNA regulatory network prediction analysis. miR-4505 expression was significantly downregulated in lung cells transfected with XLOC_000090, and significantly upregulated in lung cells transfected with sh-XLOC_000090. Dual-luciferase reporter assay showed the direct binding between miR-4505 and XLOC_000090. XLOC_000090-promoted cell migration and invasion ability was diminished in miR-4505 overexpressed cells.

      Our results demonstrated that XLOC_000090 promoted the migration and invasion of lung cancer cells through regulating miR-4505. XLOC_000090 could be served as a new molecular marker for the progression and prognosis of patients with NSCLC.
