Authors: Esen Tutar, Yusuf Tutar

Abstract

One of the main causes of worldwide cancer contributed death is lung cancer with two main types, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) (1). lncRNAs are non-coding transcripts, above 200 nt, and play important regulatory roles in many types of cancer including lung cancer progression and development. lncRNAs are known to play roles as oncogenes or tumor suppressors like microRNAs (miRNAs) (2).
