Three-lncRNA signature – a novel biomarker for the accurate prognosis prediction HNSCC


Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have important biological functions and can be used as prognostic biomarkers in cancer. To identify a lncRNA prognostic signature for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Researchers at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine analysed RNA-seq data derived from the TANRIC database to identify a lncRNA prognostic signature model using the orthogonal partial ...

Tissue-specific Co-expression of Long Non-coding and Coding RNAs Associated with Breast Cancer

Inference of the biological roles of lncRNAs in breast cancer development remains a challenge. Here, Indiana University researchers analyzed RNA-seq data in tumor and normal breast tissue samples from 18 breast cancer patients and 18 healthy controls and constructed a functional lncRNA-mRNA co-expression network. They revealed two distinctive co-expression patterns associated with breast cancer, reflecting different underlying regulatory mechanisms: (1) ...
