Day 126 (6p24.3-6p22.3): HULC, a noncoding RNA turned on in liver cancer


Day 126 has 33 protein-coding genes (browser view). The focus of today’s post is a non-protein-coding gene: HULC (Highly Upregulated in Liver Cancer.)

HULC was discovered in 2007 during a search for genes whose expression was different in liver cancer cells (versus normal cells.) Like most long noncoding RNAs, the normal function of HULC is unclear. It can be detected in the blood and may be a useful biomarker for cancer.
