Background: Ubiquitin-associated protein 2-like (UBAP2L) has been demonstrated to be associated with the progression of multiple types of cancer. However, the function of UBAP2L in uterine cervical cancer remains unclear. Materials and Methods: Between 2005 and 2015, 84 patients who underwent surgery were included in this study. The patients were stratified into two groups on the basis of immunohistochemical staining for UBAP2L, and survival analysis was performed. Moreover, loss-of-function analysis was performed using the cervical cancer cell lines CaSki and SiHa. Results: Based on immunohistochemistry, the overall survival in patients with low UBAP2L expression was significantly longer than that of those with high UBAP2L expression (p=0.045). The in vitro experiment revealed that knockdown of UBAP2L remarkably inhibited cell proliferation in both live cell imaging and the MTS assay. Conclusion: Patients with high UBAP2L expression had unfavorable prognosis and UBAP2L appears to play an important role in proliferation.
