Disease: esophageal squamous cell cancer (PMID:25486427)
Dysfunction type: expression
Description: LincRNA-uc002yug.2 was commonly overexpressed in ESCC. Moreover, lincRNA-uc002yug.2 promoted a combination of RUNX1 and alternative splicing (AS) factors in the nucleus to produce more RUNX1a, the short isoform and inhibitor of RUNX1, and reduce CEBPa (CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein-a) gene expression, thereby promoting ESCC progression. The expression levels of lincRNA-uc002yug.2 in ESCC might be a prognostic factor for survival.
Function Mechanism: NA (PMID:25486427)
Biological Process: pathogenic process
