The functional role of long non-coding RNAs and epigenetics

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are non-protein coding transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides. The post-transcriptional regulation is influenced by these lncRNAs by interfering with the microRNA pathways, involving in diverse cellular processes. The regulation of gene expression by lncRNAs at the epigenetic level, transcriptional and post-transcriptional level have been well known and widely studied. Recent recognition that lncRNAs make effects in ...

Long non-coding RNAs in cancer: implications for personalized therapy

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs, pseudogenes and circRNAs) have recently come into light as powerful players in cancer pathogenesis and it is becoming increasingly clear that they have the potential of greatly contributing to the spread and success of personalized cancer medicine. In this concise review, the authors briefly: Introduce these three classes of long non-coding RNAs. Discuss their applications as ...

Crop improvement and resistance to pathogens benefits from non-coding RNA studies

With the rise of emerging economies around the world and a concomitant upgrade of health care systems, the global population has been rapidly expanding. As a consequence, worldwide demand for agricultural products is also growing. Crops now provide food and the other important resources for seven billion humans. Food supplies are primarily based on such crops as wheat, maize, rice ...
