Gene basic information

symbol PAUPAR
name PAX6 upstream antisense RNA
location 11p13
Canceruveal melanoma,


LncRNA PAUPAR is down regulated in uveal melanoma (UM). Further studies reveal that PAUPAR acts as a necessary UM suppressor and induces the silencing of HES1 expression, which significantly reduces tumor metastasis. Mechanistically, PAUPAR modulates HES1 expression by inhibiting histone H3K4 methylation (1).
