The non-coding landscape of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is an aggressive disease marked by frequent recurrence and metastasis and stagnant survival rates. To enhance molecular knowledge of HNSCC and define a non-coding RNA (ncRNA) landscape of the disease, researchers at UCSD profiled the transcriptome-wide dysregulation of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), microRNA (miRNA), and PIWI-interacting RNA (piRNA) using RNA sequencing data from ...

The Long Noncoding RNA Expression Profile of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Identified by Microarray Analysis

lncRNA

Thousands of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported in mammalian genomes. These RNAs represent an important subset of pervasive genes involved in a broad range of biological functions. Aberrant expression of lncRNAs is associated with many types of cancers. Here, in order to explore the potential lncRNAs involved in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) oncogenesis, researchers at Jilin University, China performed ...

Featured Long non-coding RNA: GHET1

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), a recently characterized class of noncoding RNAs, have been shown to have important regulatory roles and are deregulated in a variety of tumors. However, the contributions and functional mechanisms of lncRNAs to gastric carcinoma remain largely unknown. In this study, researchers at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, China found that lncRNA gastric carcinoma ...

Integrated Analysis of Long Noncoding RNA and Coding RNA Expression in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

lncRNA

Tumorigenesis is a complex dynamic biological process that includes multiple steps of genetic and epigenetic alterations, aberrant expression of noncoding RNA, and changes in the expression profiles of coding genes. We call the collection of those perturbations in genome space the “cancer initiatome.” Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are pervasively transcribed in the genome and they have key regulatory functions in ...
