    Abstract
    Background
    The long non-coding RNA , MALAT1, plays a key role in the development of different cancers, and its expression is associated with worse prognosis in patients. However, its mechanism of action and its regulation are not well known in prostate cancer. A general mechanism of action of lncRNAs is their interaction with other epigenetic regulators including microRNAs .
    Methods
    Using lentiviral stable miRNA transfection together with cell biology functional assays and gene expression/target analysis, we investigated the interaction between MALAT1 and miR-423-5p, defined as a...
