The use of long non coding RNAs as prognostic biomarkers and therapeutic targets in prostate cancer

PMCID: 5945524
PMID: 29755696
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.25038

[…] n a boom in the development of databases that are designed specifically for lncRNAs. There are several databases that are dedicated to the curation of novel reported lncRNAs, including LncRNABase [], LNCipedia [], lncRNAdb [], LncRNAWiki [], NONCODE [], TANRIC [] and the ncRNA expression database []. Sequencing technology has evolved rapidly enough to allow lncRNA profiling at a single-cell resolu […]


The hypoxia responsive lncRNA NDRG OT1 promotes NDRG1 degradation via ubiquitin mediated proteolysis in breast cancer cells

PMCID: 5828211
PMID: 29535820
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.23732

[…] , and TopHat 2 (https://ccb.jhu.edu/software/tophat/indshex.tml) was used to align sequencing reads to human genome references (GRCh37/hg19). Then, these mapped reads were matched to lncRNAs from the Lncipedia database (http://www.lnciedia.org/) and were normalized to Fragments Per Kilobase of transcript per Million mapped reads (FPKM) as the expression level of a given lncRNA using Cufflink (http […]


Alcohol and hepatitis virus dysregulated lncRNAs as potential biomarkers for hepatocellular carcinoma

PMCID: 5787460
PMID: 29416609
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.22921

[…] lncRNA read counts were generated from RNA-sequencing datasets via BEDtools coverageBed (https://github.com/arq5x/bedtools2) [] using lncRNA annotation files obtained from LNCipedia 3.0 (http://lncipedia.org/) [], a database curating 113,438 lncRNA transcripts from sources including the Broad Institute, Ensembl, Gencode, Refseq, and NONCODE. The read count tables were i […]


A Novel Y Specific Long Non Coding RNA Associated with Cellular Lipid Accumulation in HepG2 cells and Atherosclerosis related Genes

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5711902
PMID: 29196750
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-17165-9

[…] ndations for probe melting temperature (Tm) values, GC content, and amplicon length provided by Thornton & Basu. All the primers for lincRNAs were designed from the DNA template sequence annotated on LNCipedia, the database for human lncRNA genes and transcripts. Primer sequences are available in Supplementary Table¬†. […]


Functional annotation of structural ncRNAs within enhancer RNAs in the human genome: implications for human disease

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5686184
PMID: 29138457
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15822-7

[…] resulting set of candidate lncRNAs was used to build the final gene set and annotate novel lncRNAs as follows: candidate lncRNAs were merged with previous lncRNA annotations from both GENCODE V19 and LNCipedia (V2.1) using cuffmerge. The merged lncRNA annotation was further filtered to remove transcripts that had significant exonic overlap with GENCODE protein-coding genes. Specifically, we employ […]


Expression and regulation of long noncoding RNAs during the osteogenic differentiation of periodontal ligament stem cells in the inflammatory microenvironment

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5656573
PMID: 29070806
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-14451-4

[…] AT. The transcripts that were not predicted as protein coding by either of the two methods were retained as candidate lncRNAs. The candidate lncRNAs were merged with previous lncRNAs from Gencode and Lncipedia to build a final lncRNA reference. This final lncRNA reference consisted of a total of 31,885 lncRNAs, which included 63 novel lncRNAs not annotated in the existing lncRNA databases (Fig.¬†, […]
