Abstract

The aim of the present study was to analyze the microarray data of human colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues and identify novel therapeutic targets for CRC. Microarray analysis from the GSE73360 and GSE84984 datasets was performed to identify novel long non‑coding RNAs (lncRNAs) that were differentially expressed in human CRC tissues. Additionally, small interfering RNAs were used to deplete the expression of the indicated lncRNAs in cells. Colony‑formation, wound‑closure, and transwell assays were performed on CRC cells to assess their proliferation and migration capacities. Through microarray analysis, SCARNA9L, SLMO2‑ATP5E and LOC100132062 were identified as differentially expressed lncRNAs in CRC tissues. The present study demonstrated that the ablation of SCARNA9L inhibited cell proliferation and arrested the cell cycle of SW480 and SW620 CRC cells. Additionally, depletion of SCARNA9L restrained the migration of CRC cells in vitro. Overall, the present study investigated the potential involvement of SCARNA9L in CRC and suggests SCARNA9L as a potential biomarker.
