Stem cells are cells that aren't specialized and have the potential to renew themselves and differentiate. Stem cells are critical for tissue regeneration, differentiation, and homeostasis. Recent studies have revealed that long non-coding RNAs and microRNAs, which are non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) that play an important role in gene expression, development, and course of diseases, have important effects on the functions of stem cells. This chapter aimed to investigate the consequences of ncRNAs on stem cells in normal and diseased states, as well as their significance in differentiation.
