MIR155HG, a 1500 bp long non-coding RNA transcribed from BIC(B-cell integration cluster).
MIR155 host gene
"B-cell receptor inducible", BIC, "BIC transcript", NCRNA00172, "non-protein coding RNA 172"
MIR155HG, encoding a 1500 bp non-coding RNA, is comprised of three exons and locates in cytoplasm.
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia 
MIR155HG, as a T cell early activation proto-oncogene, might act to alter the genetic program, such that upon antigen re-stimulation.
MIR155HG promoter may be activated by both AP-1- and NF-κB-mediated mechanisms upon B-cell stimulation.
- B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, Breast cancer
MIR155HG expression is highly induced by antigen receptor stimulation of B-cells (i.e. B-cell receptor cross-linking)
