Shortly after the article entitled “Decreased expression of long noncoding RNA AC096655.1-002 in gastric cancer and its clinical significance” published in Tumor Biology , the long noncoding RNA AC096655.1-002 that studied in this paper has been officially named by HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC). Readers can find the detail information from Human Gene Nomenclature Database (www.genenames.org/hgnc-searches). Its HGNC ID is HGNC: 48336. Its synonym is AC096655.1-002, LINC00876, “long intergenic non-protein coding RNA 876.” Its gene is located at 2q12.3.
As long noncoding RNA AC096655.1-002 was first found associated with gastric cancer, the committee has named it as “gastric cancer-associated transcript 1, GACAT1.” That is, approved symbol is GACAT1 and approved name is gastric cancer-associated transcript 1 (http://www.genenames.org/data/hgnc_data.php?hgnc_id=48336). GACAT1 has been found significantly downregulated in gastric cancer tissues compared with paired-adjacent non-tumorous tissues. Its expression level was significantly correlated with lymph node metastasis, distant metastasis, TNM stages, and differentiation . These results indicated that GACAT1 may be a potential biomarker in the diagnosis of gastric carcinoma.
