Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a type of refractory malignant lung cancer with a high rate of metastasis and mortality. Currently, long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) SBF2 Antisense RNA 1 (SBF2-AS1) is considered as a biomarker for a variety of tumors. However, the function of SBF2-AS1 in the growth and metastasis of NSCLC needs to be further studied. In this study, we revealed that SBF2-AS1 was overexpressed in NSCLC tissues compared with that in normal tissues. SBF2-AS1 silencing restrained the growth and aggressive phenotypes of NSCLC cell in vitro. Consistently, SBF2-AS1 knockdown hindered the growth of NSCLC cell in nude mice. The following luciferase reporter gene assay and RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP) assay suggested the relationship between miR-338-3p and SBF2-AS1. The rescue experiments showed that miR-338-3p inhibitor abolished SBF2-AS1 silencing caused inhibition on the growth, migration and invasiveness of NSCLC cell. The luciferase reporter assay and immunoblotting assay validated that A Disintegrin and Metalloprotease 17 (ADAM17) was a target of miR-338-3p. In addition, SBF2-AS1 positively regulated the level of ADAM17 through sponging for miR-338-3p. Finally, we revealed that SBF2-AS1 contributed to the proliferation and metastatic phenotypes of NSCLC cell via regulating miR-338-3p/ADAM17 axis.
