Figure 1: The biogenesis of lncRNAs involves both the nucleus and the cytoplasm with specific transcriptional and post-transcriptional functions. The lncRNA classification is based on their transcriptional origin: intergenic lncRNA (lincRNA) transcribed from the genomic region between two genes; intronic lncRNA (ilncRNA) transcribed from the introns; enhancer lncRNAs (eRNAs) transcribed from genomic regions that contain regulative sequences of the gene; sense lncRNAs transcribed from the sense strand of protein-coding gene overlapping partially or completely with intron and exons; anti-sense lncRNAs or natural antisense transcripts (NATs) transcribed from the exons of the protein coding gene on the opposite strand with partial to complete overlapping. lncRNAs: Long non-coding RNAs.
