This gene produces a long non-coding RNA that is overexpressed in prostate cancer and may act a marker for tumor progression. This RNA may act a negative regulator of apoptosis, and may promote activity of androgen receptor and Myc. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2017]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
