Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is a type of DNA transcript that is longer than 200 nucleotides (nt). They do not encode proteins, but they control gene expression on various levels. Long non-coding RNA metastasis-associated urothelial carcinoma associated 1 (UCA1) was confirmed to play an important role in the occurrence and development of many tumor and non-tumor diseases. UCA1 mainly interacts with proteins in the nucleus, regulating gene expression in transcription and post-transcription. UCA1 is highly expressed in tumor tissue, and therefore can be related to clinical parameters. It may regulate tumor cell proliferation, invasion, apoptosis, and migration, so UCA1 can be applied in clinical prognosis and targeted therapy. This review mainly elaborates the roles of UCA1 in tumor diseases of the respiratory, digestive, reproductive, and urinary systems; and in non-tumor diseases.
