LncRNA FER1L4 expression shows downregulation in colon cancer (1), endometrial carcinoma (EC)and gastric cancer (2). It is positively correlated with PTEN expression in endometrial carcinoma(EC)tissues and gastric cancer (2). The low FER1L4 level is associated with clinicopathologic parameters in gastric cancer and colon cancer (3, 1). FER1L4 can also induce cell cycle arrest and promote cell apoptosis in these three cancer cell lines.
At the molecular level, FER1L4 promotes PTEN expression with an inhibition of Akt phosphorylation (4). Besides, miR-106a-5p suppresses FER1L4 and PTEN (2, 1).
