Non-Coding RNAs are currently a hot research topic in many fields of biology, medicine, and chemistry. It is increasingly clear that non-coding RNAs are involved in fundamentally physiological and pathological processes. These processes touch on many important disciplines, from metabolism to cancer. Non-coding RNAs are regulative: they mainly influence biological processes by regulating other (protein-)coding gene expression. By doing this, the cellular properties of development and growth, stem cell regeneration, apoptosis, authophagy, etc., are strictly controlled by non-coding RNAs. This collection is dedicated to summarizing and highlighting the current research concerning the role of non-coding RNAs in regulating the aforementioned functions. The underlying mechanisms of action, the target molecules, the interactor pairs, and the pertinent cellular functions should all be presented. All relevant fields in medicine (with a special focus on metabolism, cancer, and inflammation) are of interest. The classes of non-coding RNAs should include microRNAs, other small non-coding RNAs, and long non-coding RNAs. Original research articles, review articles, and research letters are welcomed.
