CommentRecruits EZH2 to inhibit p21 expression via binding EZH2 and H3K27me3 of p21 promoter. Inhibits Wnt2/β-catenin signaling pathway via recruitment of HEY1 and silencing Wnt2. Inhibits miR-9-3p expression in an endothelial cell and promotes their proliferation and migration. Acts as molecular sponge of hsa-miR-423-5p, miR-3658, miR-21-5p.
