Abstract

The present study evaluated the effects of long non-coding RNA GAS5 on the migration and invasion of melanoma cells. Using the SK-Mel‑110 melanoma cell line, we stably expressed GAS5, visualized the distribution of GAS5 by RNA fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and examined changes in cell migration and invasion with Transwell assays. In GAS5 overexpressed SK-Mel‑110 cells, migrated and invaded cells decreased by 65.3 and 55.6%, respectively. Moreover, the MMP2 protein level, and its activity was downregulated by 67.9 and 15.8%, respectively. Overexpressing lncRNA GAS5 inhibited the migration and invasion ability of melanoma SK-Mel‑110 cells, partially by decreasing the MMP2 expression and its activity. This study is the first to reveal a potential relationship between lncRNA GAS5 and the migration and invasion of melanoma.
