LncRNA P2RX7-V3 (P2RX7 variant 3) is a transcriptional variant transcribed from the P2RX7 gene locus, which is expressed at a high level in uveal melanoma (UM) cells. P2RX7-V3 silencing reveals that this variant acts as a necessary UM oncoRNA. Knockdown of P2RX7-V3 expression significantly suppresses tumor growth and cancer cell migration. Moreover, knockdown of P2RX7-V3 leads to decreased vimentin and increased E-cadherin. Besides, a genome-wide cDNA array reveals that a variety of genes are dysregulated following P2RX7-V3 silencing (1).
