Abstract: Circular RNA is a kind of RNA molecule with special covalent closed circular structure. The existing research results showed that circular RNA zinc finger RNA binding protein (circRNA-ZFR) was abnormally expressed in many malignant tumors, and its expression level was closely related to tumor clinical stage, cell metastasis and patient prognosis. circRNA-ZFR could participate in the regulation of tumor occurrence and development through endogenous competitive adsorption of miRNA, regulation of cell cycle and activation of multiple signal pathways. Further study on the expression and mechanisms of circRNA-ZFR in malignant tumors may support early diagnosis, targeted therapy of related tumors and patients' prognosis.

Key words: circular RNA, circular RNA zinc finger RNA binding protein (circRNA-ZFR), tumors, expression, mechanisms
