Gene basic information

symbol PCAT5
name prostate cancer associated transcript 5 (non-protein coding)
location 10p11.21
alias_symbol TPCAT-10-36067
Cancerprostate cancer,


LncRNA PCAT5 is up-regulated in prostate cancer and promotes growth, migration, and invasion of ERG-positive prostate cancer cells. Moreover, PCAT5 is under direct regulation by ERG (1).
