Circular RNAs (circRNAs) participate in the occurrence and progression of many cancers. CircRNA ataxin 7 (circATXN7) (circBase ID: hsa_circ_0066436) plays a promoting influence on gastric cancer progression. However, the biological role of circATXN7 in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is indistinct. CircATXN7 and PFN2 were highly expressed in NSCLC, whereas miR-7-5p expression had the opposite trend. CircATXN7 overexpression constrained apoptosis and promoted proliferation, metastasis, invasion, and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of NSCLC cells, but circATXN7 silencing played the opposing influence and repressed xenograft tumor growth in vivo. CircATXN7 served as a miR-7-5p sponge, and circATXN7 regulated malignant behaviors of NSCLC cells through sponging miR-7-5p. PFN2 acted as a miR-7-5p target. PFN2 silencing overturned the promoting effect of miR-7-5p inhibitor on NSCLC cell malignancy, while PFN2 overexpression reversed the inhibitory impact of miR-7-5p mimic on NSCLC cell malignancy. CircATXN7 accelerated the malignancy of NSCLC cells through adsorbing miR-7-5p and upregulating PFN2, offering evidence to support circATXN7 as a might target for NSCLC treatment.
