Identified RNA molecules that regulate action of male hormone in prostate cancer

(Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) A study detected in tumoral tissue hundreds of RNAs that do not encode proteins but appear to regulate effects of androgens and androgen receptors on gene expression in tumors. By investigating the connection between the presençe of these molecules and tumor aggressiveness, the research paves the way for new scientific approaches focusing on the transcription process of noncoding RNA.
