Antisense long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important roles in regulating the expression of coding genes in post-transcriptional level. However, detailed expression profile of lncRNAs and functions of antisense lncRNAs in bladder cancer remains unclear. To investigate regulation of lncRNAs in bladder cancer and demonstrate their functions, we performed(More)
Long non-coding RNA HOX transcript antisenseRNA (HOTAIR) has been widely identified to participate in tumour pathogenesis, acting as a promoter in colorectal cancer carcinogenesis. However, the association between genetic variants in HOTAIR and cancer risk has not yet been reported. In the present study, we performed a two-stage case-control study to(More)
The long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) H19 as an imprinted gene transcribed from only the maternal allele has the vital role in carcinogenesis. Aberrant H19 expression is involved in bladder cancer development. In this study, we explored the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in H19 and bladder cancer risk. Four tagging SNPs (tagSNPs) were(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been widely regarded as crucial regulators in various biological processes involved in carcinogenesis. However, the comprehensive lncRNA expression signature in colorectal cancer remains fully unknown. We performed a high throughput microarray assay to detect lncRNA expression profile in three paired human colorectal(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (LncRNAs) have been widely studied and aberrant expression of lncRNAs are involved in diverse cancers. Genetic variation in lncRNAs can influence the lncRNAs expression and function. At present, there are many studies to investigate the association between lncRNAs polymorphisms and cancer susceptibility. However, it has no systematic(More)
Although some studies have assessed the prognostic value of HOTAIR in patients with digestive system tumors, the relationship between the HOTAIR and outcome of digestive system tumors remains unknown. The PubMed was searched to identify the eligible studies. Here, we performed a meta-analysis with 11 studies, including a total of 903 cases. Pooled hazard(More)
BACKGROUND PIWI-interacting RNAs (piRNAs), which are a novel type of identified small noncoding RNA (ncRNA), play a crucial role in germline development and carcinogenesis. METHODS By systematically screening all known piRNAs, the authors identified 7 common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 9 piRNAs. Associations between these selected SNPs and(More)
Inactivation of tumor suppressor genes by promoter hypermethylation plays a key role in the tumorgenesis. It is necessary to uncover the detailed pattern of whole genome-wide abnormal DNA methylation during the development of gastric cancer (GC). We performed a genome-wide methylation detection using 12 paired of GC tissues and their corresponding normal(More)
