UVA Discovers lncRNA that regulates gene controlling growth of prostate cancer

lncRNA

Researchers have discovered a long non-coding RNA which could be used as a biomarker and in new therapies for prostate cancer. Cancer researchers at the School of Medicine have identified a key to controlling the growth and progression of prostate cancer, the second most common cancer in men. The researchers have dubbed this key “HULLK,” and they believe it could be used ...

New lncRNA biomarkers for neuroblastoma

lncRNA

Two new biomarkers for a type of cancer in children called neuroblastoma have been identified in a study published in the journal Cancer Cell. The findings are expected to have immediate significance for disease prognosis, and eventually also for treatment. “There is a need for new methods of treatment for high-risk patients, and that’s where our research can lead to ...

Long Noncoding RNA in Cancer

lncrna

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), which are encoded by a vast less explored region of the human genome, may hold missing drivers of cancer and have gained attention recently as a potentially crucial...
