ncR2Met (lncR2metasta v2.0)

A database for experimentally supported ncRNAs during various cancer metastatic events

Welcome to ncR2Met

ncR2Met (2.0 version of the previous lncR2metasta), a manually curated database, aims at providing a comprehensive resource of ncRNA regulation in various cancer metastatic events, abbreviated as CMEs, such as cancer cell invasion, intravasation, extravasation, proliferation and so on, which may cooperatively facilitate malignant tumor spread and lead to massive patient deaths. It documents 1565 lncRNA-associated, 882 miRNA-associated, and 628 circRNA-associated entries for the ncRNA-CME associations during 50 CMEs across 63 human cancer subtypes. We believe that ncR2Met will act as a useful platform for elaborately understanding ncRNA functions in metastasis.
