|LINC00958 is upregulated in HCC cell lines and tissues. LINC00958 sponges miR-3619-5p which has among its targets HDGF which is important for lipogenesis. LINC00958 is upregulated in HCC cell lines and tissues, thus it icreases the interactions with miR-3619-5p, thus increasing HDGF mRNA expression levels. HDGF has been established as an oncogene that facilitates the progression of HCC. Furthermore, m6A methylation levels are enriched within LINC00958 in HCC cells and they correlate with and increased METTL3 expression level. These results suggest that the increase of LINC00958 in HCC may be attributed to the m6A modification.
