Genome-wide analysis of long noncoding RNA expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of uremia patients.

BACKGROUND Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are transcripts longer than ~200 nucleotides with little or no protein-coding capacity. There is evidence that the lncRNAs are involved in a variety of biological functions and are associated with human diseases. The aim of this study was to reveal any potential lncRNA regulatory mechanism in uremia. METHODS Blood… CONTINUE READING
