AA174084 long noncoding RNA potentially may play a role during Gastric Cancer development
AA174084 (also known simply as AA) is a gastric juice long noncoding RNA 
lncRNA-AA174084 is a tumor-suppressor gene which was suggested to play a tumor-suppressor role in Gastric Cancer (GC) tumorigenesis (including tumor initiation, progression, metastasis and prognosis) and proposed as a potential biomarker for screening EGC. 
Function Mechanism: tumor suppression
Biological Process: pathogenic process
Expression levels of AA174084 were down‐regulated significantly in 95 of 134 GC tissues (71%) compared with the levels in paired, adjacent, normal tissues (P < .001). 
Disease: gastric cancer 
Dysfunction type: expression
Description: AA174084 may have potential as marker for the early diagnosis of GC
