Cancerprostate cancer,


LncRNA-thrombospondin 4 (THBS4)-003 is a processed transcript, which does not encode a protein product. LncRNA THBS4-003 is located at chromosome 5p14.1 and partially overlaps with the protein-coding gene, THBS4. The expression levels of THBS4 and lncRNA-THBS4-003 are significantly higher in prostate cancer (PC) tissues. THBS4 and lncRNA-THBS4-003 significantly promote the migratory and invasive abilities of the PCa cells. Functionally, lncRNA-THBS4-003 and THBS4 regulate levels of MMP-9 through the MAPK signaling pathway (1).
