Noncoding RNAs: the missing "linc" in p53-mediated repression

Cell. 2010 Aug 6;142(3):358-60. doi: 10.1016/j.cell.2010.07.029.


The tumor suppressor protein p53 coordinates the cellular response to stress through regulation of gene expression. Now, Huarte et al. (2010) identify a long intergenic noncoding RNA as a new player in p53-mediated repression of genes involved in apoptosis.
