The vast majority of the mammalian genome is transcribed giving rise to many different types of noncoding RNAs. Among them, long noncoding RNAs are the most numerous and functionally versatile class. Indeed, the lncRNA repertoire might be as rich as the proteome. LncRNAs have emerged as key regulators of gene expression at multiple levels. They play important roles in the regulation of development, differentiation and maintenance of cell identity and they also contribute to disease. In this review, we present recent advances in the biology of lncRNAs in muscle development and differentiation. We will also discuss the contribution of lncRNAs to muscle disease with a particular focus on Duchenne and facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophies.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 April 2014.
All research outputs
of 6,230,013 outputs
Outputs from Skeletal Muscle
of 153 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 133,288 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Skeletal Muscle
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,230,013 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 63rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 153 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.6. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 133,288 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
