Researchers establish correlations between conserved 3D motifs and the function of MEG3 as a tumour suppressor

lncrna

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are key regulatory molecules, but unlike with other RNAs, the direct link between their tertiary structure motifs and their function has proven elusive. An international team led by researchers at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Grenoble (EMBL) report structural and functional studies of human maternally expressed gene 3 (MEG3), a tumor suppressor lncRNA that modulates the ...
