SO Accession: SO:0001877 (SOWiki)
Definition: A non-coding RNA generally longer than 200 nucleotides that cannot be classified as any other ncRNA subtype. Similar to mRNAs, lncRNAs are mainly transcribed by RNA polymerase II, are often capped by 7-methyl guanosine at their 5' ends, polyadenylated at their 3' ends and may be spliced.
