Selecting lncRNAs for directed therapy with bioactive peptides and chemotherapy drugs may be an effective approach to treating gastric cancer (GC). We show genome-scale identification and characterization of differentially expressed lncRNAs in GC cells treated with a novel anti-cancer bioactive peptide (ACBP) and the chemotherapy drug oxaliplatin (ASLB). A total of 17,897 lncRNAs were identified through pairwise comparison, including 2,074 novel lncRNAs. Of those, 1,386 lncRNAs were differentially expressed (over 1.5-fold change vs. control, q-value < 0.05) in response to ACBP and ASLB treatment. These included 914 upregulated and 472 downregulated lincRNAs. Functional annotation of these lncRNAs through Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genome (KEGG) pathway analysis revealed they activate metabolic pathways and protein-binding processes. Moreover, suppression of the DNA replication process and upregulation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) signaling in MKN45 cells exposed to ACBP alone or in combination with ASLB was predicted by hierarchical clustering analysis. By providing new insight into the transcriptomic effects of ACBP and ASLB in GC cells, these results provide the first evidence of ACBP inhibition of lincRNAs and may provide new mechanisms of action for ACBP and ASLB.
