LncRNA PEG10 is higher in esophageal cancer tissues than in adjacent non-neoplastic tissues. This relatively high expression is significantly associated with the occurrence of lymph node metastases. Moreover, LncRNA PEG10 can promote proliferation and invasion, and inhibit apoptosis (1).
While in diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), PEG10 is up-regulated in DLBCL tumorous tissues and cell lines. Moreover, PEG10 is significantly correlated with B symptoms, IPI score, CHOP-like treatment and rituximab. In addition, PEG10 could be a diagnostic marker for distinguishing DLBCL from normal. Besides, knockdown of PEG10 by siRNA could lead to growth arrest and cell apoptosis (2).
