Gene basic information

symbol FOXCUT
name FOXC1 upstream transcript (non-protein coding)
location 6p25.3
alias_symbol TCONS_00011636
alias_name FOXC1 promoter upstream transcript
Cancerbreast cancer,esophageal squamous cell cancer,


LncRNA FOXCUT is ove-rexpressed in basal-like breast cancer (BLBC) tissue specimens (1) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (2), and positively correlated with FOXC1 mRNA level. FOXCUT can promote proliferation and migration in these two cancer cell lines. In addition, high expression of FOXCUT is correlated with age, poor differentiation, advanced lymph node classification, metastasis and poor prognosis in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (2).
