More than 97 percent of the transcribed RNA in mammalian cells is notcoding for proteins. Among these are micro RNAs (miRs), transfer RNAs (tRNA) as well as ribosomal RNAs (rRNA) but also long non- coding RNAs (lncRNAs). This RNA class is only deﬁned by its sequence length of more than 200 nucleotides and its lack of protein coding potential. The human genome encodes for more than 18.000 lncRNAs which contribute to gene expression control. Here, we discuss the function of these lncRNAs and how they modulate the angiogenic pro-cess of vessel growth.
