Recently, long noncoding RNAs have been emerged as critical regulators of human disease and prognostic markers in several cancers, including gastric cancer. In this study, we globally assessed the transcriptomic differences of lncRNAs in gastric cancer using publicly available microarray data from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) and identified an oncogenetic(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as critical regulators in a variety of human cancers, including gastric cancer (GC). However, the function and mechanisms responsible for these molecules in GC are not fully understood. In our previous study, we found that GC associated lncRNA HOXA11-AS is significantly upregulated in GC tissues. Over-expressed(More)
BACKGROUND Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as important regulators of tumorigenesis and cancer progression. Recently, the lncRNA AGAP2-AS1 was identified as an oncogenic lncRNA in human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and its elevated expression was linked to NSCLC development and progression. However, the expression pattern and molecular(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as important regulators in a variety of human diseases, including cancers. However, the biological function of these molecules and the mechanisms responsible for their alteration in gastric cancer (GC) are not fully understood. In this study, we found that lncRNA LINC00673 is significantly upregulated in gastric(More)
Pseudogenes were once considered to be genomic fossils without biological function. Interestingly, recent evidence showed that a lot of pseudogenes are transcribed in human cancers, and their alterations contribute to multiple cancer development and progression. It is apparent that many pseudogenes transcribe noncoding RNAs and contribute to the role(More)
Mounting evidence demonstrates that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are novel transcripts governing multiple biological processes, and their dysregulation is involved in the development and progression of multiple types of cancers. Small Nucleolar RNA Host Gene 20 (SNHG20) is a 2183 bp lncRNA, and its overexpression predicts poor prognosis in colorectal(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA) have been implicated in human cancer but their mechanisms of action are mainly undocumented. In this study, we investigated lncRNA alterations that contribute to gastric cancer through an analysis of The Cancer Genome Atlas RNA sequencing data and other publicly available microarray data. Here we report the gastric(More)
The non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients harbor mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) can be therapeutically targeted by EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKI), such as gefitinib, and show improved progression-free survival. However, most of the patients who are initially responsive to EGFR TKIs with activating EGFR mutations(More)
Over the past decade, the importance of non-protein-coding functional elements in the human genome has emerged from the water and been identified as a key revelation in post-genomic biology. Since the completion of the ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) and FANTOM (Functional Annotation of Mammals) project, tens of thousands of pseudogenes as well as(More)
