Gene basic information

Cancercolorectal cancer,


LncRNA Lnc34a is enriched in colon cancer stem cells (CCSCs) and initiates asymmetric division by directly targeting the microRNA miR-34a to cause its spatial imbalance. Lnc34a recruits Dnmt3a via PHB2 and HDAC1 to methylate and deacetylate the miR-34a promoter simultaneously, hence epigenetically silencing miR-34a expression independent of its upstream regulator, p53. Lnc34a level affects CCSC self-renewal and colorectal cancer (CRC) growth in xenograft models. Moreover, Lnc34a is up-regulated in late-stage CRCs, contributing to epigenetic miR-34a silencing and CRC proliferation (1).
