PAUPAR lncRNA suppresses tumourigenesis by H3K4 demethylation in uveal melanoma.

Uveal melanoma (UM) is the most common primary intraocular tumour in adults and has a high incidence. Nearly 50% of patients with UM develop metastases after diagnosis. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are involved in both oncogenic and tumour suppression pathways. We show that lncRNA PAUPAR is present at low levels in UM tissues and cell lines and modulates… CONTINUE READING
