Gene basic information

symbol PCNA-AS1
name PCNA antisense RNA 1
location 20p12.3
Cancergastric cancer,hepatic cancer,


PCNA-AS1, antisense to PCNA, is increased in gastric cancer tissues and associated with invasion. The expression level of PCNA-AS1 is also related with immunohistochemical biomarkers of BRCA1 (1).
While in hepatocellular carcinoma, PCNA-AS1 is significantly up-regulated in HCC and could promote tumor growth both in vitro and in vivo. The effects of PCNA-AS1 rely on regulation of PCNA via forming RNA hybridization to increase PCNA mRNA stability (2).
