Multiple Isoforms of ANRIL in Melanoma Cells: Structural Complexity Suggests Variations in Processing

lncRNA

The long non-coding RNA ANRIL, antisense to the CDKN2B locus, is transcribed from a gene that encompasses multiple disease-associated polymorphisms. Despite the identification of multiple isoforms of ANRIL, expression of certain transcripts has been found to be tissue-specific and the characterisation of ANRIL transcripts remains incomplete. Several functions have been associated with ANRIL. In our judgement, studies on ANRIL functionality ...

Long noncoding and circular RNAs in lung cancer

lncRNA

Better understanding and management of lung cancer are needed. Although much has been learned from known protein coding genes, long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), a relatively new and fast evolving large family of transcripts, have recently generated much attention for new discoveries. LncRNAs play critical regulatory functions and are emerging as new players in tumorigenesis and phenotypic determinators of lung cancer. ...
