Pancreatitis inflammation of the pancreas leads to hundreds of thousands of hospital admissions each year in the United States. We studied the role of a noncoding RNA gene in pancreas inflammation using mouse cells. Gene deletion of this RNA reduces the proinflammatory response of mouse cells. These data support that this RNA is a critical promoter to pancreatitis.
