Melanoma Addiction to the Long Non-Coding RNA SAMMSON
Prof. Jean-Christophe Marine and Dr. Eleonora Leucci work at the Laboratory for Molecular Cancer Biology, K.U. Leuven in Belgium. They recently published a Nature paper showing that melanoma cancer cells are addicted to the lncRNA SAMSSON. They have been using Antisense LNA GapmeRs to silence the lncRNA SAMSSON and suppress tumor growth.
