Long Non-coding RNAs in Human Disease

-

Description

This
volume focuses on the roles of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in contexts
ranging from human cancers to cardiovascular disease and ageing. The role of
lncRNAs in X-inactivation and those lncRNAs derived from pseudogenes, past
retroelements integrated within the human genome, as well as the role these
pseudogene-derived lncRNAs play in cancer development are discussed in detail. Further,
the book examines the function of lncRNAs in diseases such as diabetes, in smooth
muscle formation, and in the modulation of nuclear receptors, as well as in
connection with perspectives
on the development of
personalized therapeutics. It offers an appealing and insightful resource for
scientists and clinicians alike.
