Common name
prostate cancer associated transcript 29 (non-protein coding) 
Description
This gene is thought to produce a functional long non-coding RNA. This transcript was identified in prostate cancer cells and may suppress tumor formation. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2015]

Study Design
Genome-wide association study on 410 long-living individuals (age range, 90–109 years) and 553 young control individuals (age range, 18–48 years) using 318,237 SNPs. An independent population with 116 long-lived individuals and 160 controls was used for replication purposes.
Conclusions
A total of 67 SNPs were identified with an indication of potentially being associated with longevity (p < 1 × 10−4), though 66 were not further validated
