A long noncoding RNA in DNA replication and chromosome dynamics


Researchers from the University of Navarra, Spain describe a novel human lncRNA, named CONCR (cohesion regulator noncoding RNA) involved in DNA replication and sister chromatid cohesion. They show that CONCR expression is periodic in the cell cycle, suggesting that the lncRNA has a tightly-regulated temporal function in the cell. Furthermore, as previously shown for protein coding genes, such as cyclins or ...
