MIR155HG, a 1500 bp long non-coding RNA transcribed from BIC(B-cell integration cluster).


Annotated Information




"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.[1]

Cellular Localization

  • Cytoplasm


MIR155HG, as a T cell early activation proto-oncogene, might act to alter the genetic program, such that upon antigen re-stimulation.[2]


(A) Schematic representation of the human MIR155HG with the transcription factor binding sites which have been shown to regulate the expression of this gene which have been localized downstream of exon 1. (B) Schematic representation of the transcription factor binding sites which have been shown to regulate the expression of MIR155HG which have been localized upstream and just downstream of exon 1. The black arrow in exon 1 denotes transcription initiation. The light blue shaded area represents a CpG island. TATA represents the location of the TATA box for MIR155HG.[1]

MIR155HG promoter may be activated by both AP-1- and NF-κB-mediated mechanisms upon B-cell stimulation[1].


  • B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, Breast cancer [3]


MIR155HG expression is highly induced by antigen receptor stimulation of B-cells (i.e. B-cell receptor cross-linking) [3]
