Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of the principal complications of diabetes and podocyte injury plays an important role in the DN pathogenesis. Wnt/β-catenin signaling overactivation confers podocyte injury and promotes multiple types of renal disease. However, the underlying mechanism of Wnt/β-catenin signaling activation in DN progression has not been fully elucidated. Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) is a large class of endogenous RNA molecules lacking functional code capacity and which participates in the pathogenesis of human disease, including DN.
