Abstract:


Background: Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) fetal-lethal non-coding developmental regulatory RNA (FENDRR), a newly known lncRNA, has been reported to be abnormally expressed in diverse tumors. This review is focused on clarifying the mechanism of FENDRR to regulate the biological process of tumors, affirming its value as a target for tumor therapy.

Methods: The pathophysiological mechanism of FENDRR acting on tumors has been analyzed and summarized by reviewing PubMed.

Results: The expression of lncRNA FENDRR is abnormally altered in clinical cancers, promoting the malignant transformation of a variety of tumors, including colon cancer, cervical cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, prostate cancer, Malignant melanoma, lung cancer, osteosarcoma, breast cancer, etc. Cellular processions, including proliferation, invasion, apoptosis and migration affected by FENDRR, have been revealed.

Conclusion: Specific evidences for the involvement of LncRNA FENDRR in cancer regulatory processes suggest that FENDRR has the potential to be a biomarker or clinical therapeutic target for malignant tumors.

Keywords:

Long non-coding RNA, FENDRR, cancer, biomarkers, therapeutic targets, clinical prognosis.
