Plasma and tumor levels of Linc-pint are diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers for pancreatic cancer.

Plasma and tumor levels of Linc-pint are diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers for pancreatic cancer.

Long intergenic non-protein coding RNA, p53 induced transcript (Linc-pint) is an extended noncoding RNA (lncRNA) that regulates tumor cell viability and proliferation. We used qRT-PCR and RNA FISH evaluation to judge Linc-pint levels within the plasma and tumor tissues of pancreatic most cancers (PCa) sufferers. Our knowledge exhibit that Linc-pint expression is decrease in plasma samples from …
