Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play crucial roles in the regulation of human thyroid cancer (TC), including papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC); PTC is the most common pathological subtype of TC. To date, the expression, function, and mechanism of the lncRNA CASC15 in PTC remain unclear. The present study results showed that CASC15 was overexpressed in PTC tissues compared with normal tissues and acted as a potent oncogene to promote the proliferation and tumorigenesis of PTC cells both in vitro and in vivo. Mechanistic studies demonstrated that CASC15 could serve as an endogenous miRNA sponge to absorb and downregulate miR-7151-5p, thereby preventing the inhibition of WNT7A during PTC progression. Furthermore, the study demonstrated that CASC15 activated the WNT/β‑catenin signaling pathway by upregulating WNT7A in PTC. Taken together, our findings identified CASC15 as a potential diagnostic marker or therapeutic target for PTC progression.

This article has been retracted: please see Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal ( This article has been retracted at the request of the Authors. Current research findings in the authors' laboratory are in conflict with previous experimental results published in this paper. It was found that the data reported in figures 4 and 5 were not able to be replicated and so therefore the authors have decided that it is best for the scientific record to retract this paper. All the authors agree with the retraction. The authors apologise for any confusion this paper might have caused readers.
