Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was performed to detect the expressions of MALAT1, miR-200a-3p and PD-L1 in NSCLC tissues and cells for the correlation analysis. The starBase and Targetscan databases were used to predict the binding sites between MALAT1 and miR-200a-3p, and miR-200a-3p and PD-L1, respectively. The targeting relationship between MALAT1 and miR-200a-3p, and miR-200a-3p and PD-L1 were further verified by real-time PCR and dual luciferase reporter gene assay. Cell proliferation was monitored by CCK8 and colony formation assays. The apoptosis was detected using flow cytometry. Wound healing assay and transwell assay were conducted to determine cell migration and invasion. In this study, we demonstrated that in NSCLC tissues, the expression level of MALAT1 was negatively correlated with that of miR-200a-3p, while positively correlated with PD-L1. Besides, MALAT1 promoted proliferation, mobility, migration, and invasion of NSCLC cells via sponging miR-200a-3p. PD-L1 was validated as a target of miR-200a-3p, and indirectly modulated by MALAT1. In conclusion, LncRNA MALAT1 facilitates the progression of NSCLC by modulating miR-200a-3p/PDL1 axis.</p></div>
