This gene produces a long non-coding RNA that may regulate cell proliferation. This RNA is upregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma, where it is thought to function as an oncogene. However, some splice variants of this gene may function as a tumor suppressor in neuroblastoma and other tumor types. Circular RNA variants were observed at this gene.
