Maternally expressed 3 (MEG3) is a long non-coding RNA that can activate p53 and inhibit tumorigenesis and progression of various types of cancers. However, the role of MEG3 in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is still unknown. The aim of the present study was to confirm whether MEG3 is downregulated in human EOC, determine its possible mechanism of action(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the reversal effects of different concentrations of DNA methylation inhibitor, 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine, on the hypermethylation of maternally expressed gene 3 (MEG3) gene promoter, and then the inhibitory effect of restoration of MEG3 expression on the proliferation of ovarian cancer cells. METHODS Human ovarian cancer OVCAR3 cells(More)
BACKGROUND Metastasis associated in lung adenocarcinoma transcript-1 (MALAT-1) is overexpressed during cancer progression and promotes cell migration and invasion in many solid tumors. However, its role in ovarian cancer remains poorly understood. METHODS Expressions of MALAT-1 were detected in 37 normal ovarian tissues and 45 ovarian cancer tissues by(More)
