This gene produces a long non-coding RNA that was found to be upregulated in bladder cancer and plays a regulatory role in cell proliferation. This transcript regulates several genes, including CREB (cAMP responsive element binding protein). Expression of this transcript is regulated by CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein-alpha.
