LncRNA CCAT2 is higher in breast cancer (1), esophageal squamous carcinoma (2), lung cancer (3), gastric cancer (4), cervical cancer (5) and ovarian cancer (6). CCAT2 expression level is associated with clinicopathological parameters such as lymph node metastasis, TNM stage, prognosis etc. (7, 2, 4, 6). Functionally, CCAT2 regulates cancer cell proliferation, migration, metastasis, invasion and apoptosis (7, 6). Besides, CCAT2 is involves with chemotherapy response (8).
