Background: It is substantiated that LncRNAs are associated with carcinoma progression. OIP5-
AS1 is a tumor-related carcinoma suppressor lncRNA, previously discovered in zebrafish, which is involved in
the progression of a variety of cancers, has a regulatory effect on carcinoma, and interacts with miRNA and
other biomolecules to affect the physiological and pathological processes of carcinoma cells. This article will
discuss the effect of OIP5-AS1 in various cancers and its regulatory mechanism.
Methods: This paper summarized and analyzed OIP5-AS1, which functions on the germination and progression
of carcinoma and its regulatory mechanism. Meanwhile, the related research was retrieved and collected
by the PubMed system.
Result: OIP5-AS1 is overexpressed in various tumors, which regulates and controls tumor growth and participates
in tumor progression, including breast carcinoma, ovarian carcinoma, cervical carcinoma, lung carcinoma,
laryngeal squamous cell gastric carcinoma and hepatocellular carcinoma. The research evidence proves
that OIP5-AS1 takes part in carcinoma proliferation, growth, migration, invasion, and apoptosis.
Conclusion: OIP5-AS1 probably can be an effective biomarker or a potential therapeutic target in multiple tumors.
