Strategic and Innovative Roles of lncRNAs Regulated by Naturally-Derived Small Molecules in Cancer Therapy


Ayşe Hale Alkan, Mine Ensoy and Demet Cansaran-Duman*   Pages 1 - 20 ( 20 )


In the field of precision and personalized medicine, the next generation sequencing method has begun to take an active place as genome-wide screening applications in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Studies based on the determination of the therapeutic efficacy of personalized drug use in cancer treatment in the size of the transcriptome and its extension, lncRNA, have been increasing rapidly in recent years. Targeting and/or regulating noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) consisting of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are promising strategies for cancer treatment. Within the scope of rapidly increasing studies in recent years, it has been shown that many natural agents obtained from biological organisms can potentially alter the expression of many lncRNAs associated with oncogenic functions. Natural agents include effective small molecules that provide anti-cancer effects and have been used as chemotherapy drugs or in combination with standard anti-cancer drugs used in routine treatment. In this review, it was aimed to provide detailed information about the potential of natural agents to regulate and/or target non-coding RNAs and their mechanisms of action to provide an approach for cancer therapy. The discovery of novel anti-cancer targets and subsequent development of effective drugs or combination strategies that are still needed for most cancers will be promising for cancer treatment.
