Featured long non-coding RNA – Antisense Sirt1

Natural antisense transcripts (NATs) exist ubiquitously as pivotal molecules to regulate coding gene expression. Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1) is a NAD-dependent deacetylase which is involved in myogenesis. However, whether Sirt1 transcribes NAT during C2C12 differentiation is still unknown. In this study, researchers at Northwest A&F University, China identified a Sirt1 NAT which was designated as Sirt1 antisense long non-coding RNA (AS ...
