Long non-coding RNA nuclear-enriched abundant transcript 1 (Lnc-NEAT1) is a crucial mediator in cancer progression, which is associated with poor prognosis of patients with laryngeal papilloma (LP). Herein, we aimed to determine how Lnc-NEAT1 promotes LP development. q-PCR, MTT, EDU and Western blotting were performed to determine that Lnc-NEAT1 facilitates LP cell proliferation and hinders cell apoptosis. LncBase database, q-PCR, GEPIA online database, Dual luciferase reporter and RIP assays were utilized to confirm that Lnc-NEAT1 sponged miR-577/miR-1224-5p and negatively mediated CCNT2. Western blotting, MTT and EDU were used to confirm that Lnc-NEAT1 promoted LP cell proliferation and inhibited cell apoptosis through CCNT2. Lnc-NEAT1 was highly expressed in LP, and enhanced LP cell proliferation, and it was inhibited by Lnc-NEAT1 depleting. Concerning the underlying mechanism, it was found that Lnc-NEAT1 could functionally sponge microRNA-577 (miR-577) and microRNA-1224-5p (miR-1224-5p) and up-regulate Cyclin T2 (CCNT2) in LP cells. Notably, CCNT2 knockdown blocked Lnc-NEAT1-induced LP cell proliferation, and rescued cell apoptosis, which was specifically indicated by restoration of Bax, Cleaved caspase 3 and Cleaved caspase 9. Lnc-NEAT1 played a carcinogenic role in LP through mediating miR-577 or miR-1224-5p/CCNT2 axis, which may provide promising insights for the treatment of LP.
