Summaries for HULC Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HULC Gene

  • This gene produces a long RNA that was discovered as upregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma and is associated with cancer progression. Expression of this transcript is regulated by microRNAs and at the transcriptional level by Sp1 family factors. The transcript may regulate gene expression by functioning as a competing RNA for microRNAs. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2017]
