    Long non-coding RNAs as key regulators of cancer metastasis

    Pratirodh Koirala , De-Hong Zou , Yin-Yuan Mo

    The recent advances in functional genomics have discovered that a large number of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are pervasively transcribed from the human genome. Increasing evidence further indicates that lncRNAs are important for gene expression during cell differentiation and development...
