lncRNA-HIT promotes cell proliferation of non-small cell lung cancer

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death around the world. Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) has pivotal roles in cancer occurrence and development. However, only a few lncRNAs have been functionally characterized. Jilin University researchers investigated the effects of lncRNA-HIT (HOXA transcript induced by TGFβ) expression on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell phenotype with the gain-of-function and loss-of-function ...

lncRNAs LOC146880 and ENST00000439577 may promote the progression of NSCLC

lncRNA

To identify what long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are involved in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), researchers from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine analyzed microarray data on gene expression and methylation. Gene expression chip and HumanMethylation450BeadChip were used to interrogate genome-wide expression and methylation in tumor samples. Differential expression and methylation were analyzed through comparing tumors with adjacent ...

A critical role for the long non-coding RNA GAS5 in proliferation and apoptosis in non-small-cell lung cancer

lncRNA

In recent years, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been investigated as a new class of regulators of cellular processes, such as cell growth, apoptosis, and carcinogenesis. Although lncRNAs are dysregulated in numerous cancer types, limited data are available on the expression profile and functional role of lncRNAs in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In the present study, researchers at the ...

Add GHSROS to the growing number of non-coding RNAs that play a role in the regulation of tumourigenesis

The molecular mechanisms involved in non‑small cell lung cancer tumourigenesis are largely unknown; however, recent studies have suggested that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are likely to play a role. In this study, researchers from the Queensland University of Technology used public databases to identify an mRNA-like, candidate long non-coding RNA, GHSROS (GHSR opposite strand), transcribed from the antisense strand of ...
