Glioma is the most common and aggressive tumor of the central nervous system. The uncontrolled proliferation, cellular heterogeneity, and diffusive capacity of glioma cells contribute to a very poor prognosis of patients with high grade glioma. Compared to normal cells, cancer cells exhibit a higher rate of glucose uptake, which is accompanied with the metabolic switch from oxidative phosphorylation to aerobic glycolysis. The metabolic reprogramming of cancer cell supports excessive cell proliferation, which are frequently mediated by the activation of oncogenes or the perturbations of tumor suppressor genes. Recently, a growing body of evidence has started to reveal that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are implicated in a wide spectrum of biological processes in glioma, including malignant phenotypes and aerobic glycolysis. However, the mechanisms of diverse lncRNAs in the initiation and progression of gliomas remain to be fully unveiled. In this review, we summarized the diverse roles of lncRNAs in shaping the biological features and aerobic glycolysis of glioma. The thorough understanding of lncRNAs in glioma biology provides opportunities for developing diagnostic biomarkers and novel therapeutic strategies targeting gliomas. View Full-Text
