N-BLR, a primate-specific non-coding transcript leads to colorectal cancer invasion and migration

Genome Biology

May 26, 2017

Isidore RigoutsosGeorge A Calin

Abstract

Non-coding RNAs have been drawing increasing attention in recent years as functional data suggest that they play important roles in key cellular processes. N-BLR is a primate-specific long non-coding RNA that modulates the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, facilitates cell migration...read more

Cadherins and Catenins

Cadherins (named for "calcium-dependent adhesion") are a type of cell adhesion molecule (CAM) that is important in the formation of adherens junctions to bind cells with each other. Catenins are a family of proteins found in complexes with cadherin cell adhesion molecules of animal cells: alpha-catenin can bind to β-catenin and can also bind actin. β-catenin binds the cytoplasmic domain of some cadherins. Discover the latest research on cadherins and catenins here.

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.

Non-coding Variants in Cancer

Mutations, single nucleotide variants and large genomic rearrangements, in non-coding regions of the genome can have severe consequences such as disruption of transcription factor binding sites and functions of non-coding RNAs and can impact tumor development and progression. Here is the latest research.

Parasite Genetics

Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.

Cancer Incidence & Mortality

Cancer has emerged as a global concern due to its increase in incidence and mortality. Efforts are underway to evaluate and develop action plans to reduce the global burden of cancer. Currently, lung cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer are the leading causes of cancer mortality. Here is the latest research on cancer incidence and mortality.

Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition & Cancer

Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) is a process where epithelial cell properties are lost, such as polarity, and mesenchymal cell properties are gained, such as migratory phenotypes. EMT is implicated in cancer progression and the metastatic process. Discover the latest research here.
