Muhammad Tahir Hayat. The Role of Non-coding Rnas in Cancer Progression: A Concise Comprehensive Review

Posted on: Apr 24, 2024, 14:21:44

Description: Cancer is among one of the most widespread diseases globally and poses a great threat to human wellbeing. Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) compose most transcripts but cannot undergo translation. Thus, no proteins are made by them. However, studies have shown that ncRNAs can mimic both oncogenes and tumour suppressor genes involved in cancer. This review discusses recent research on the involvement of ncRNAs in the progression, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. These ncRNAs consist of microRNAs, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and circular RNAs (circRNAs). This concise paper aims to inform researchers, clinicians, and scientists in navigating the dynamic field of ncRNAs in cancer with the goal of fostering collaboration to translate discoveries into practical clinical advancements.
