Genome-wide identification of long non-coding RNA genes and their association with insecticide resistance

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is a class of noncoding RNA >200 bp in length that has essential roles in regulating a variety of biological processes. Here, researchers from Yichun University constructed a computational pipeline to identify lncRNA genes in the diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella), a major insect pest of cruciferous vegetables. In total, 3,324 lncRNAs corresponding to 2,475 loci were identified ...

A deep learning method for lincRNA detection using auto-encoder algorithm

lncRNA

RNA sequencing technique (RNA-seq) enables scientists to develop novel data-driven methods for discovering more unidentified lincRNAs. Meantime, knowledge-based technologies are experiencing a potential revolution ignited by the new deep learning methods. By scanning the newly found data set from RNA-seq, scientists have found that: (1) the expression of lincRNAs appears to be regulated, that is, the relevance exists along the ...

RNA-seq-based genome annotation and identification of long-noncoding RNAs in the winegrape Riesling

lncRNA

The technological advances of RNA-seq and de novo transcriptome assembly have enabled genome annotation and transcriptome profiling in highly heterozygous species such as grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.). This work is an attempt to utilize a de novo-assembled transcriptome of the V. vinifera cultivar ‘Riesling’ to improve annotation of the grapevine reference genome sequence. Here researchers from Missouri State University and the ...

Prediction of clinical outcome and survival in soft-tissue sarcoma using a ten-lncRNA signature

lncRNA

The prognostic value of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in patients with soft-tissue sarcoma has rarely been unraveled. Researchers from Guangxi Medical University set out to find a lncRNA signature to predict the clinical outcome and survival in soft-tissue sarcoma based on the high-throughput RNA-seq data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database. The lncRNAs which closely correlated with overall survival ...

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 ...

Elucidating the role of host long non-coding RNA during viral infection

lncrna

Research over the past decade has clearly shown that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are functional. Many lncRNAs can be related to immunity and the host response to viral infection, but their specific functions remain largely elusive. The vast majority of lncRNAs are annotated with extremely limited knowledge and tend to be expressed at low levels, making ad hoc experimentation difficult. ...

Identification and characterization of a long non-coding RNA up-regulated during HIV-1 infection

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are rapidly emerging as important regulators of a diverse array of cellular functions. Here, Columbia University researchers describe a meta-analysis of two independent RNA-seq studies to identify lncRNAs that are differentially expressed upon HIV-1 infection. Only three lncRNA genes exhibited altered expression of ≥ 2-fold in HIV-1-infected cells. Of these, the uncharacterized lncRNA LINC00173 was chosen ...

Comprehensive discovery of non-coding RNAs in acute myeloid leukemia cell transcriptomes

lncRNA

To comprehensively detect diverse and novel RNA species, researchers from Washington University, St. Louis compared deep small RNA and RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) methods applied to a primary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) sample. They were able to discover previously unannotated small RNAs using deep sequencing of a library method employing broader insert size selection. The researchers analyzed the long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) ...

Discovery of novel long non-coding RNAs induced by subgroup J avian leukosis virus

lncRNA

Avian leukosis virus subgroup J (ALV-J) is an avian oncogenic retrovirus that has led to severe economic losses in the poultry industry in China in recent decades. Here, using high throughput transcriptome sequencing of HD11 and CEF cells infected with ALV-J, researchers from Yangzhou University identified a set of 4804 novel long non-coding transcripts and numerous differentially expressed long non-coding ...

Global ID of lncRNAs associated with insecticide resistance in diamondback moths

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are now considered important regulatory factors, with a variety of biological functions in many species including insects. Some lncRNAs have the ability to show rapid responses to diverse stimuli or stress factors and are involved in responses to insecticide. However, there are no reports to date on the characterization of lncRNAs associated with chlorantraniliprole resistance in ...
