The long noncoding RNA LINC00673 has emerged as an important regulator of cancer development and progression. However, the clinical significance and biological roles of LINC00673 in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) remain unclear. In this study, we aimed to explore the oncogenic roles and underlying molecular mechanisms of LINC00673 in EOC.


The expression levels of LINC00673 in EOC tissues and cell lines were detected by quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Real-time cellular analysis (RTCA), flow cytometry, and transwell assays were conducted to investigate cell proliferation, apoptosis, migration and invasion in vitro. Subcutaneous transplanted tumors were established to explore the oncogenic role of LINC00673 in vivo. Differentially expressed genes were analyzed using transcriptome sequencing. Protein levels were determined by Western blot assays.


LINC00673 was upregulated in EOC tissues and cell lines compared to their corresponding normal controls. High expression of LINC00673 was associated with advanced International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage, serous histological subtype, lymph node metastasis and poor prognosis in patients with EOC. LINC00673 was also identified as an independent prognostic factor for EOC. In addition, LINC00673 promoted cell migration, invasion and proliferation and inhibited cell apoptosis in vitro and induced tumor growth in vivo. Mechanistically, opioid growth factor receptor (OGFR) was found to be a potential downstream target gene that mediated the oncogenic effect of LINC00673 in EOC.


LINC00673 contributes to EOC proliferation and metastasis and may be a promising prognostic biomarker for EOC patients.
