MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main 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.


Feature:

Summarizes the tremendous
progress made within the last decade in understanding the roles of lncRNA in
human disease

Bridges the divide between
inferring lncRNA mechanisms and targeting lncRNAs by means of rational
therapeutics

Stresses the vital role of
lncRNA disease mechanisms for a necessary and profound reassessment of
Genome-Wide Association studies in the new era of personalized medicine
