Abstract:


Background: A number of studies have proposed that lncRNA XIST plays a role in the development and chemosensitivity of NSCLC. Besides, XIST may become a potential therapeutic target for NSCLC patients. The aim of this review is to reveal the biological functions and exact mechanisms of XIST in NSCLC.

Methods: In this review, relevant researches involving in the relationship between XIST and NSCLC are collected through systematic retrieval of PubMed

Results: XIST is an oncogene in NSCLC and is abnormally upregulated in NSCLC tissues. Considerable evidence has shown that XIST exerts a critical role in the proliferation, invasion, migration, apoptosis and chemosensitivity of NSCLC cells. XIST mainly functions as a ceRNA in NSCLC process, while XIST also functions at transcriptional levels.

Conclusion: LncRNA XIST has potential to become a novel biomolecular marker of NSCLC and a therapeutic target for NSCLC.
