Background: Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the world, with clinical manifestations of resting tremor, akinesia (or bradykinesia), rigidity, and postural instability. However, the molecular pathogenesis of PD is still unclear, and its effective treatments are limited. Substantial evidence demonstrates that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have important functions in various human diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases. Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to review the role of lncRNAs in the pathogenesis of PD.

Methods: The role of lncRNAs in the pathogenesis of PD is summarized by reviewing Pubmed.

Results: Thirty different lncRNAs are aberrantly expressed in PD and promote or inhibit PD by mediating ubiquitin-proteasome system, autophagy-lysosomal pathway, dopamine (DA) neuronal apoptosis, mitochondrial function, oxidative stress, and neuroinflammation.

Conclusion: In this direction, lncRNA may contribute to the treatment of PD as a diagnostic and therapeutic target for PD.
