    Emerging evidence has identified the vital role of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in the development of colorectal cancer. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of lncRNA gastric carcinoma highly expressed transcript 1 (GHET1) in colorectal cancer. We analyzed the expression of GHET1 in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues by using ISH. We found that GHET1 expression was significantly increased in the CRC samples compared with adjacent tissues. Furthermore, the cancer tissues had higher GHET1 mRNA levels than their matched adjacent tissues. GHET1 expression was also significantly increased in the CRC cell lines compared with human normal colon epithelial cells. Downregulation of GHET1 mediated by shRNA suppressed the proliferation, cell cycle arrest, migration, and invasion of colorectal cancer cells in vitro. In addition, inhibition of GHET1 reversed the epithelialmesenchymal transition in colorectal cancer cell lines. Taken together, our results suggest the potential use of GHET1 as a therapeutic target of colorectal cancer.
