Cocaine Modifies Transcriptional Profiling of lncRNAs
LncRNAhas been shown to be involved in various neurological diseases;however, itsrole in drug addiction is unknown. Here, we identified 603 lncRNAs changed significantly in brain nucleus accunbens of cocaine-dependent mice, providing 48 pair mRNA-lncRNAs significantly modified. These findings provide for the first time new insights intothepotentialinvolvement of lncRNAs in neuroplasticity and drug addiction.
