Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), are transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides that are considered to be vital regulators of many cellular processes, particularly in tumorigenesis and cancer progression. long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 261 (LINC00261), a recently discovered lncRNA, is abnormally expressed in a variety of human malignancies, including pancreatic cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, breast cancer, laryngeal carcinoma, endometrial carcinoma, esophageal cancer, prostate cancer, choriocarcinoma, and cholangiocarcinoma. LINC00261 mainly functions as a tumor suppressor that regulates a variety of biological processes in the above-mentioned cancers, such as cell proliferation, apoptosis, motility, chemoresistance, and tumorigenesis.
