The behavior of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in cells as well as in cancers astonishing the whole scientific community. LncRNAs are absolutely diversified in nature and can execute a decisive task to regulate the genes in conjunction with developmental processes. They emerged as key orchestrators in cancers because of their involvement in cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. In this precise opinion, we first discuss the role of lncRNAs in various processes in the cell and later we brief the participation of lncRNAs in cancers with a note on their protein-coding potential.
Key words: Long Non-Coding RNA, LncRNAs in Cancer, Protein-coding potential of lncRNA
