Identification of long non-coding RNA in the horse transcriptome

Efforts to resolve the transcribed sequences in the equine genome have focused on protein-coding RNA. The transcription of the intergenic regions, although detected via total RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), has yet to be characterized in the horse. The most recent equine transcriptome based on RNA-seq from several tissues was a prime opportunity to obtain a concurrent long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) database. ...

Characterization of a Novel Long Non-Coding RNA – SCAL1, Induced by Cigarette Smoke

The incidence of lung diseases and cancer caused by cigarette smoke is increasing. The molecular mechanism(s) of gene regulation induced by cigarette smoke that ultimately lead to cancer remains unclear. This report describes a novel long non-coding RNA (LncRNA) that is induced by cigarette smoke extract (CSE) both in vitro and in vivo and is elevated in numerous lung cancer ...
