PWRN1 (non-coding RNA) == binding ==> MIR21 (5p microRNA)

PWRN1 was downregulated in both human GBM tumors and GBM cell lines. In LN-229 and U-251, PWRN1 overexpression suppressed cancer cell proliferation and migration in vitro, and xenograft growth in vivo. Hsa-miR-21-5p was demonstrated to be the downstream competing target of PWRN1 in GBM. Conversely, upregulating hsa-miR-21-5p in LN-229 and U-251 cells reversed the tumor-suppressing effects of PWRN1 overexpression. (32753949)
