A gene regulatory network is a set of genes, or parts of genes, that interact with each other to control a specific cell function. Gene regulatory networks are important in development, differentiation and responding to environmental cues.
The role of lncRNA is unclear with respect to epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which is linked to ovarian cancer metastasis. Here, the authors show lncRNA DNM3OS expression contributes to ovarian cancer EMT, cell migration/invasion, and correlates with worse overall patient survival.
Existing transcriptional regulatory networks models fall short of deciphering the cooperation between multiple transcription factors on dynamic gene expression. Here the authors develop an integrative method that combines gene expression and transcription factor-DNA binding data to decode transcription regulatory logics.
