Cancerbreast cancer,lung cancer,renal cancer,


LncRNA EPB41L4A-AS2 is down-regulated in breast, renal and lung cancer. Low expression is correlated with larger tumor size, higher stage and grade, ER and PR negative expression. Besides, low expression is correlated with poorer survival of the three kinds of cancers. In addition, a better overall survival is observed in TP53 wild-type breast cancer patients with high EPB41L4A-AS2 expression, while the converse is found for breast cancer patients with a TP53 mutation. Furthermore, overexpression of EPB41L4A-AS2 inhibits tumor cell proliferation (1).
