摘要：Non-coding RNAs (NcRNAs), a family of functional RNA molecules that cannot translate into proteins but control specific gene expression programs, have been shown to be implicated in various biological processes, including fatty acid metabolism. Fast-growing tumor cells rewire their fatty acid metabolic circuitry in order to meet the needs of energy storage, membrane proliferation, and the generation of signaling molecules, which is achieved by regulating a variety of key enzymes along with related signaling pathways in fatty acid metabolism. This review presents an update of our knowledge about the regulatory network of ncRNAs—specifically, microRNAs (miRNAs), long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and circular RNAs (circRNAs)—in this metabolic shift and discusses the possibility of ncRNA-based therapeutics being applied to the restoration of cancer-related fatty acid metabolism. © 2019 Elsevier Inc.
