lncRNA Detection

A large shRNA library approach for identification of lncRNAs

lncrna

The mammalian cell cycle is a complex and tightly controlled event. Myriads of different control mechanisms are involved in its regulation. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) have emerged as important regulators of many cellular processes including cellular proliferation. However, a more global and unbiased approach to identify lncRNAs with importance for cell proliferation is missing. Here, researchers from Hannover Medical School ...

UClncR – Ultrafast and comprehensive long non-coding RNA detection from RNA-Seq

lncrna

Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is a large class of gene transcripts with regulatory functions discovered in recent years. Many more are expected to be revealed with accumulation of RNA-seq data from diverse types of normal and diseased tissues. However, discovering novel lncRNAs and accurately quantifying known lncRNAs is not trivial from massive RNA-seq data. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have ...

A Support Vector Machine based method to distinguish long non-coding RNAs from protein coding transcripts

lncRNA

In recent years, a rapidly increasing number of RNA transcripts has been generated by thousands of sequencing projects around the world, creating enormous volumes of transcript data to be analyzed. An important problem to be addressed when analyzing this data is distinguishing between long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and protein coding transcripts (PCTs). Thus, we present a Support Vector Machine (SVM) ...

Discriminating cirRNAs from other lncRNAs using a hierarchical extreme learning machine (H-ELM) algorithm

lncRNA

As non-coding RNAs, circular RNAs (cirRNAs) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have attracted an increasing amount of attention. They have been confirmed to participate in many biological processes, including playing roles in transcriptional regulation, regulating protein-coding genes, and binding to RNA-associated proteins. Until now, the differences between these two types of non-coding RNAs have not been fully uncovered. It is ...

lncRNA-screen – an interactive platform for computationally screening long non-coding RNAs in large genomics datasets

lncrna

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as a class of factors that are important for regulating development and cancer. Computational prediction of lncRNAs from ultra-deep RNA sequencing has been successful in identifying candidate lncRNAs. However, the complexity of handling and integrating different types of genomics data poses significant challenges to experimental laboratories that lack extensive genomics expertise. To address this ...

Comparing Machine Learning Based Tools for Long Noncoding Transcripts Discrimination

lncRNA

Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) is a kind of noncoding RNA with length more than 200 nucleotides, which aroused interest of people in recent years. Lots of studies have confirmed that human genome contains many thousands of lncRNAs which exert great influence over some critical regulators of cellular process. With the advent of high-throughput sequencing technologies, a great quantity of sequences ...

Urb-RIP – An Adaptable and Efficient Approach for Immunoprecipitation of lncRNAs and Associated RNAs/Proteins

Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression is an important process that is mediated by interactions between mRNAs and RNA binding proteins (RBP), non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) or ribonucleoproteins (RNP). Key to the study of post-transcriptional regulation of mRNAs and the function of ncRNAs such as long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) is an understanding of what factors are interacting with these transcripts. While several ...

Stellaris® RNA Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization for the Simultaneous Detection of Immature and Mature Long Noncoding RNAs in Adherent Cells

lncRNA

RNA fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), long an indispensable tool for the detection and localization of RNA, is becoming an increasingly important complement to other gene expression analysis methods. Especially important for long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), RNA FISH adds the ability to distinguish between primary and mature lncRNA transcripts and thus to segregate the site of synthesis from the site ...

Next-Generation Sequencing Analysis of Long Noncoding RNAs

lncRNA

Next-generation sequencing approaches, in particular RNA-seq, provide a genome-wide expression profiling allowing the identification of novel and rare transcripts such as long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA). Many RNA-seq studies have now been performed aimed at the characterization of lncRNAs and their possible involvement in cell development and differentiation in different organisms, cell types, and tissues. Researchers from the National Institute of ...
