LncRNA UBC1 is significantly up-regulated in gastric cancer tissues (1) and bladder cancer (2). Furthermore, high UBC1 expression is associated with clinicopathological parameter such as lymph-node metastasis, tumor size, TNM stage and poorer prognosis (1, 2). Functionally, UBC1 promotes proliferation, motility and invasion of gastric cancer cells (1, 2). Moreover, UBC1 acts in trans and binds to PRC2 complex and suppresses its target genes in bladder cancer cell (2).
