RNA and protein molecules join forces to switch on gene networks responsible for brain development


from Medical Xpress Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are one of many RNA subtypes that do not give rise to protein but instead modulate the expression of other genes. Scientists are particularly interested in lncRNAs owing to their prominent role in regulating how embryonic stem cells give rise to mature tissues. Lawrence Stanton and colleagues at the A*STAR Genome Institute of ...

Featured long non-coding RNA – RMST

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are abundant in the mammalian transcriptome, and many are specifically expressed in the brain. Researchers from the Genome Institute of Singapore and Harvard University have identified a group of lncRNAs, including rhabdomyosarcoma 2-associated transcript (RMST), which are indispensable for neurogenesis. Here, they provide mechanistic insight into the role of human RMST in modulating neurogenesis. RMST expression ...
