Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are known to play a crucial role in the onset and progression of cervical cancer (CC). Here, the results of RNA microarray and RNA-sequencing dataset analysis showed that lncRNA DLEU2 was significantly upregulated in CC tissues. Clinicopathologic analysis indicated that lncRNA DLEU2 was closely related to tumor topography. Functional experiments and bioinformatics analysis revealed that lncRNA DLEU2 promoted CC cell proliferation and accelerated the cell cycle. Mechanistically, lncRNA DLEU2 promoted the progression of the cell cycle and inhibited the activity of the Notch signaling pathway by inhibiting p53 expression. Additionally, lncRNA DLEU2 probably interacted with ZFP36 Ring Finger Protein (ZFP36) to inhibit the expression of p53. In conclusion, this study revealed the function of lncRNA DLEU2 in CC tumorigenesis, suggesting new therapeutic targets in CC. Copyright © 2021 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier Inc.
