  • Colorectal Cancer [ref.1]

Therapy Method


HOX transcript antisense RNA (HOTAIR) is one of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs); it interacts with polycomb repressive complex 2 and is responsible for histone H3 lysine-27 trimethylation of the HOD locus. Furthermore, aberrant HOTAIR expression has been markedly associated with metastasis and poor clinical outcomes in different tumor types including breast cancer[1].
