ORGUL Members for UCA1 Gene
This gene represents a long non-coding RNA. It plays a regulatory role in bladder cancer cell proliferation. Several genes can be regulated by this gene, and the most important one is the CREB (cAMP responsive element binding protein) gene, which encodes a transcriptional factor and affects the oncogenesis.

GeneCards Summary for UCA1 Gene
UCA1 (Urothelial Cancer Associated 1 (Non-Protein Coding)) is an RNA Gene, and belongs to the lncRNA class. Diseases associated with UCA1 include retinitis pigmentosa 48. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Disease.
fRNAdb sequence ontologies for UCA1 Gene - the ORGUL cluster for this gene includes several descriptions:
ncRNA: An RNA transcript that does not encode for a protein rather the RNA molecule is the gene product.
mature_transcript: A transcript which has undergone the necessary modifications, if any, for its function. In eukaryotes this includes, for example, processing of introns, cleavage, base modification, and modifications to the 5' and/or the 3' ends, other than addition of bases. In bacteria functional mRNAs are usually not modified.
