Expression of LINC00632 and ciRS-7 was partly restored by treatment with a combination of an EZH2 inhibitor (EPZ-6438) and a DNA methyl transferase inhibitor (5-azacytidine), which also restores the IMiD sensitivity of the cells. However, knockdown of ciRS-7 did not affect IMiD sensitivity and we found that ciRS-7 also becomes epigenetically silenced after prolonged cell culture without drug-exposure. In conclusion, we found that genome-wide circRNA expression patterns reflect IMiD sensitivity in an in vitro model of acquired resistance.",
