Jun N-terminal Kinase (JNK) signaling pathway is a conserved cascade among species with particular roles in diverse processes during embryogenesis and normal life. These kinases regulate functions of neurons and the immune system by affecting the expression of genes, modulating the arrangement of cytoskeletal proteins, and regulating apoptosis/survival pathways. They are also involved in carcinogenesis. Several miRNAs and lncRNAs have a functional relationship with JNKs. This interaction contributes to the pathogenesis of traumatic brain injury, ulcerative colitis, hepatic ischemia/ reperfusion injury, acute myocardial infarction, and a number of other disorders. Lung cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, gall bladder cancer, melanoma, and colon cancer are among malignant conditions in which JNK-related miRNAs/ lncRNAs contribute. The current review aims at depicting the functional interaction between JNKs and lncRNAs/ miRNAs and describing the role of these regulatory transcripts in the pathobiology of human disorders.
