LINC00520 plays a functional role in breast cancer

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been implicated in normal cellular homeostasis as well as pathophysiological conditions, including cancer. Harvard Medical School researchers performed global gene expression profiling of mammary epithelial cells transformed by oncogenic v-Src, and identified a large subset of uncharacterized lncRNAs potentially involved in breast cancer development. Specifically, their analysis revealed a novel lncRNA, LINC00520 that is upregulated ...
