LncRNA uc003fir regulated CCL5 directly, which may mediate the recruitment of pro-inflammatory cytokines released from monocytes and other leukocytes. Additionally, lncRNA uc003fir may interact with microRNAs to affect the invasion of trophoblast cells into myometrium, indicating that lncRNA uc003fir could be considered as a target in PE.
