RNA-Seq reveals long noncoding RNAs response to hypoxia in the endothelial cell


Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are non-protein coding RNAs regulating gene expression. Although for some lncRNAs a relevant role in hypoxic endothelium has been shown, the regulation and function of lncRNAs is still largely unknown in the vascular physio-pathology. Taking advantage of next-generation sequencing techniques, researchers at the Policlinico San Donato-IRCCS investigated transcriptomic changes induced by endothelial cell exposure to hypoxia. ...
