Disease: colorectal cancer (PMID:29523145)
Dysfunction type: expression
Description: Of the seletced lncRNAs, four lncRNAs named CCAT3, CCAT4, CCAT5, and CCAT6 (also named MYCLo-2) are upregulated in CRC cell lines, and two lncRNAs named CCAT7 and CCAT8 are downregulated in CRC cell lines. MYC-regulated lncRNAs, named MYCLos. The MYC-regulated MYCLos may function in cell proliferation and cell cycle by regulating MYC target genes such as CDKN1A (p21) and CDKN2B (p15), suggesting new regulatory mechanisms of MYC-repressed target genes through lncRNAs.
Function Mechanism: NA (PMID:29523145)
