Significant enrichment of RNA binding protein sites across some lncRNA classes

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), are being reported to be extensively involved in diverse regulatory roles and have exhibited numerous disease associations. LncRNAs modulate their function through interaction with other biomolecules in the cell including DNA, RNA, and proteins. The availability of genome-scale experimental datasets of RNA binding proteins (RBP) motivated us to understand the role of lncRNAs in terms of ...

Researchers develop new approach to study long non-coding RNAs

New method identifies and determines role for newly discovered genetic units Until recently, scientific research concentrated almost exclusively on the 2 percent of the genome’s protein coding regions, virtually ignoring the other 98 percent – a vast universe of non-coding genetic material previously dismissed as ‘junk.’ In the past 10 years, scientists have discovered thousands of new long non-coding RNAs ...
