In two different studies on renal cell carcinoma and glioblastoma, it has been shown that miR-21 targeted and suppressed the expression of the tumor suppressor lncRNA CASC2 (cancer susceptibility candidate 2) in an AGO2-dependent manner [105,106].
In theory, the [beta]-catenin pathway, frequently hyperactivated in cancers, could be effectively attenuated by simultaneous silencing of miR-21, miR-135b, and FTH1P3 together with restoring physiologic levels of GAS5, CASC2, and miR-224-5p.
