Affymetrix to Sponsor New Webinar Focusing on the Importance of Understanding lncRNAs in Breast Cancer Progression and Tumorigenesis

lncRNA

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and is the second leading cause of cancer death among women. Hundreds of thousands of women worldwide lose their battle against this cancer each year, and it is estimated that one in eight US women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. The heterogeneity of breast cancer, with its ...

Webinar – Evolinc – Identification and Evolutionary Analysis of lncRNA

lncRNA

In this webinar, we present Evolinc, a two-part set of apps in the CyVerse Discovery Environment (DE). Evolinc-I is designed to make long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) identification easy and reproducible, regardless of the system. Evolinc-II compares such lncRNAs to determine whether they are conserved at the genomic or transcriptomic level in various species. This information is helpful in curating lncRNA ...

Upcoming Webinar – RNA-ISH for Long non-coding RNAs – new game changers in pathology

lncRNA

August 11, 2016   –   11:00AM PST, 2:00PM ET, 7:00PM GMT Rohit Mehra, M.D. Assistant Professor of Pathology Member-Michigan Center for Translational Pathology MLabs Genitourinary Service Line Director Co-Director, University of Michigan Rapid Autopsy Discovery Program The central dogma that forms the backbone of molecular biology is that DNA codes for RNA (transcription) which then codes for proteins (translation). However, studies ...

Webinar – lncRNA function and the use of Antisense LNA™ GapmeRs for knockdown of RNA

lncRNA

Watch our recent webinar and hear Dr. Zhen Xing from Liuqing Yang’s lab at MD Anderson Cancer Center present their work on long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA). In a recent Cell paper, they showed that knockdown of BCAR4 significantly reduced breast cancer metastasis in a mouse model. Hear about their approaches for the analysis of lncRNA function and get helpful tips. ...

Upcoming Webinar – Knockdown of lncRNAs: exploring RNAi and antisense oligo methods

lncRNA

Date: Tuesday, August 25, 2015 Time: Session 1: 9:00–10:00 am CDT (UTC-5) Session 2: 1:00–2:00 pm CDT (UTC-5) Presenter: Kim Lennox, MSc Program overview Thousands of different long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) exist in mammalian cells. lncRNAs do not encode proteins but can be very important for cell function. Studying their functions can be difficult because of their diverse modes of ...

Webinar – Targeting Noncoding RNAs in Disease: Challenges and Opportunities

This event occurred on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 Noncoding RNAs make up the majority of transcribed RNA and have a wide range of functions in cellular and developmental processes. Consequently, they are also implicated in the development and pathophysiology of many diseases and represent potential targets for therapeutic intervention. microRNAs are one class of noncoding RNA that has been intensely ...

Webinar: Long non-coding RNAs in Development & Disease Progression

Long noncoding RNAs (LncRNAs) are eukaryotic RNA molecules greater than 200 nucleotides in length that have no protein-coding capacity. Recently, LncRNAs have emerged as important factors in gene regulation. The inappropriate expression of some LncRNAs has been demonstrated to cause diseases such as liver cancer and Alzheimer’s. Ed Davis, Ph.D., Technical Support Specialist at Arraystar, Inc. discusses the biological and ...

Webinar: Detection of Long Noncoding RNAs by Stellaris FISH Probes

Long non-coding RNAs are now appearing from the genome’s dark matter. Much of what was previously labeled as junk DNA in fact produces non-coding RNA. While non-coding RNAs serve important biological functions, the lack of protein products requires new tools for detection and quantification. To meet this need, Stellaris RNA FISH probes from Biosearch Technologies are now entering laboratories around ...
