Breast cancer remains the leading cause of female cancer-related mortalities worldwide. Long non-coding RNAs (LncRNAs) have been increasingly reported to play pivotal roles in tumorigenesis and cancer progression. Herein, we focused on LINC00467, which has never been studied in breast cancer. Silence of LINC00467 suppressed proliferation, migration, invasion and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of breast cancer cells in vitro, whereas forced expression of LINC00467 exhibited the opposite effects. Furthermore, we demonstrated overexpression of LINC00467 promoted tumor growth, while knockdown of LINC00467 inhibited pulmonary metastasis in vivo. Mechanistically, LINC00467 down-regulated miR-138-5p by acting as a miRNA “sponge”. Besides, LINC00467 also up-regulated the protein level of lin-28 homolog B (LIN28B) via a direct interaction. A higher expression level of LINC00467 was observed in breast cancer tissues as compared to the adjacent normal counterparts and elevated LINC00467 predicted poor overall survival. Our findings suggest LINC00467 promotes progression of breast cancer through interacting with miR-138-5p and LIN28B directly. LINC00467 may serve as a potential candidate for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
