Cancerhepatic cancer,


LncRNA HEIH is up-regulated in hepatic carcinoma (HCC) and can be an independent prognostic factor for HCC patients. Functionally, HEIH can promote cell invasion (1). Moreover, HEIH is up regulated by SP1 and positively correlated with PCNA. Besides, HEIH associates with EZH2 and that this association is required for the expression of EZH2-regulated target genes (2).
