    Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) make up the majority of the human genome. They are a group of small RNA molecules that do not code for any proteins but play a primary role in regulating a variety of physiological and pathological processes. X-inactive specific transcript (XIST), one of the first lncRNAs to be discovered, is chiefly responsible for X chromosome inactivation: an evolutionary process of dosage compensation between the sex chromosomes of males and females. Recent studies show that XIST plays a pathophysiological role in the development and prognosis of brain tumors, a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that cause significant morbidity and mortality. In this review, we explore recent advancements in the role of XIST in migration, proliferation, angiogenesis, chemoresistance, and evasion of apoptosis in different types of brain tumors, with particular emphasis on gliomas.
