The lncRNA HOTAIR impacts differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells via triple helix formation

There is a growing perception that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) modulate cellular function. In this study, researchers from RWTH University Medical School analyzed the role of the lncRNA HOTAIR in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with particular focus on senescence-associated changes in gene expression and DNA-methylation (DNAm). HOTAIR binding sites were enriched at genomic regions that become hypermethylated with increasing cell culture ...
