    Gallbladder cancer (GBC) accounts for 85-90% malignancies of the biliary tree worldwide. Considerable evidence has demonstrated that dysregulation of lncRNAs is involved in the progression of cancer. LncRNA PVT1 has been reported to play important roles in various cancers, but its role in gallbladder cancer remains unknown. In the present study, we found that PVT1 was upregulated in GBC tissues and cells, and its upregulation was related with poor prognosis in GBC patients. PVT1 promoted GBC cells proliferation in vitro and in vivo. Mechanistically, PVT1 recruited DNMT1 via EZH2 to the miR-18b-5p DNA promoter and suppressed the transcription of miR-18b-5p through DNA methylation. Moreover, HIF1A was proved to be the downstream target gene of miR-18b-5p and PVT1 regulated GBC cells proliferation via HIF1A. In conclusion, our studies clarified the PVT1/miR-18b-5p/HIF1A regulation axis and indicated that PVT1 could be a potential therapeutic target for GBC.
