Transcriptome sequencing uncovers altered long intergenic non-coding RNAs

Long intergenic non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) represent an emerging and under-studied class of transcripts that play a significant role in human cancers. Due to the tissue- and cancer-specific expression patterns observed for many lncRNAs it is believed that they could serve ...

Long Intergenic Non-Coding RNAs (LincRNAs) Identified by RNA-Seq


In an attempt to find breast cancer tissue and respective adjacent normal tissue were studied for the expression of lincRNAs by RNA-seq. Among the 538 lincRNAs studied, 124 lincRNAs were exclusively expressed in cancer adjacent tissues and 62 lincRNAs were ...
