Knockdown of Nuclear-Located Enhancer RNAs and Long ncRNAs Using Locked Nucleic Acid GapmeRs


The human genome is widely transcribed outside of protein-coding genes, producing thousands of noncoding RNAs from different subfamilies including enhancer RNAs. Functional studies to determine the role of individual genes are challenging with noncoding RNAs appearing to be more difficult to knockdown than mRNAs. One factor that may have hindered progress is that the majority of noncoding RNAs are thought ...

Long non-coding RNAs in the cardiovascular system

Dr. Stefanie Dimmeler – Dr. Reinier Boon – Katharina M. Michalik Katharina Michalik, Reinier Boon and Stefanie Dimmeler work at the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. They are interested in microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) that control cardiovascular functions in endothelial cells. What is the background for your current project involving LNA™ GapmeRs? ...
