Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been recognized as a common reproductive and endocrine disorder. Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) steroid receptor RNA activator (SRA) affects multiple biological processes. However, it is not known whether lncRNA SRA is associated with PCOS. In the study, we measured the expression level of lncRNA SRA in PCOS patients, and analyzed the association between lncRNA SRA and multiple key endocrine parameters of PCOS. LncRNA SRA expression was significantly higher in… CONTINUE READING
