Nowadays, research on tumor-related long non-coding RNAs is still at its infancy. However, growing evidence shows that long non-coding RNAs are involved in the invasion, metastasis and prognosis of tumor, but there is limited knowledge about the transcriptional regulation of these molecules. Here, we described the expression pattern of long non-coding RNAs in tissues and cells and evaluated its relationship with tumor invasion, metastasis and prognosis of human cancers. Also, we summarized the status quo of studies on the transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of long non-coding RNAs in order to provide an insight for future development of this rapidly advancing field.

However, it was recently found that non-coding RNAs do in fact have a much bigger role than previously thought. They are involved in cancer...

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of highly evolutionarily conserved non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) that modulate gene expression. Several studies have shown that the expression of miRNAs is deregulated in human malignancies. For ncRNAs and miRNAs, such gene-profiling studies in tumorigenic tissues have...

    Malignant melanoma is fatal in its metastatic stage. It is therefore essential to unravel the molecular mechanisms that govern disease progression to metastasis. MicroRNAs (miRs) are endogenous non-coding RNAs involved in tumourigenesis. Using a melanoma progression model, we identified a novel...

    The long-term prognosis for clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is dramatically altered by the development of metastatic recurrence. However, there are very few indicators that can predict which patient will develop a recurrence. MicroRNAs regulate many cellular processes and have been shown...

    Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have recently been found to play important roles in various cancer types. The elucidation of genome-wide lncRNA expression patterns in metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) could reveal novel mechanisms underlying NPC carcinogenesis and progression. In this...
