The advent of next-generation sequencing has demonstrated that eukaryotic genomes are extremely complex than what were previously thought. Recent studies revealed that in addition to protein-coding genes, nonprotein-coding genes have allocated a large fraction of the genome. Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) genes are classified as nonprotein-coding genes,(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers in the world; therefore, extensive research is needed to find new molecular therapeutic targets and biomarkers. LncRNA (long non-coding RNA), a new class of non-coding RNAs, has a crucial role in the onset and progression of various cancers including colorectal cancer. Research on lncRNA is still at(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-coding RNAs, containing about 22 nucleotides and having a pivotal function in various cellular processes. The oncogenic and tumor suppressor roles of miRNAs have been identified in cancers especially in gastric cancer, which is one of the most prevalent cancers. MiR-299-5p is located in the imprinted Dlk1-Dio3 region in(More)
BACKGROUND Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), a class of regulatory RNAs, play a major role in various cellular processes. Long intergenic non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs), a subclass of lncRNAs, are involved in the trans- and cis-regulation of gene expression. In the case of cis-regulation, by recruiting chromatin-modifying complexes, lincRNAs influence adjacent(More)
MicroRNAs, a class of gene expression regulatory non-coding RNAs, participate in the pathogenic mechanisms of gastric cancer which is one of the life-treating cancers. Due to its aberrant expression in some types of human cancer, miR-383 has the value of being investigated in relation to cancer treatment and diagnosis. MiR-383 is placed in intron of SGCZ, a(More)
