NEAT1 is Required for Survival of Breast Cancer Cells

Increasing evidence shows that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have important roles in the regulation of multiple cellular processes, including cell division, cell growth, and apoptosis, as well as cancer metastasis and neurological disease progression; however, the mechanism of how lncRNAs regulate these processes is not well established. In this study, researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences demonstrated that downregulating ...

Featured Long Non-Coding RNA – Urothelial Cancer Associated 1

long non-coding rna

The majority of the human genome is transcribed and generates non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) that fail to encode protein information. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as a novel class of ncRNAs, but our knowledge about these ncRNAs is limited. Previously, researchers at the Xi’an Jiaotong University, China had identified that a lncRNA, Urothelial cancer associated 1 (UCA1), played an important ...
