<p> Background: Long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 1116 (LINC01116) plays a carcinogenic role in a variety of cancers. The study aims to investigate the roles of LINC01116 and hsa-miR-9-5p (miR-9-5p) and fathom their interaction in chordoma. <p> Methods: The predicted binding sites between miR-9-5p with LINC01116 and phosphoglycerate kinase 1 (PGK1) by starBase were confirmed through dual-luciferase reporter assay. The behaviors of chordoma cells undergoing transfection with siLINC01116 or miR-9-5p inhibitor were determined by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8), colony formation, Transwell, and flow cytometry assays. The glucose consumption, lactate production, and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production of chordoma cells were examined with specific kits. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) and Western blot were performed to determine relevant gene expressions in chordoma cells. <p> Results: Silencing of LINC01116 facilitated the apoptosis and expressions of Bcl-2- associated X (Bax), cleaved caspase-3 (C caspase-3) and miR-9-5p while repressing the cell cycle, viability, proliferation, invasion, glucose consumption, lactate production, ATP production, and expressions of PGK1 and Bcl-2. Meanwhile, LINC01116 sponged miR-9-5p, which could target PGK1. Moreover, the miR-9-5p inhibitor acted contrarily and reversed the role of siLINC01116 in chordoma cells. Besides, LINC01116 downregulation facilitated apoptosis and attenuated the proliferation and invasion of chordoma cells as well as PGK1 expression by upregulating miR-9-5p expression. <p> Conclusion: LINC01116/miR-9-5p plays a regulatory role in the progression of chordoma cells and is a potential biomarker for chordoma.</p>
