Prostate cancer-associated lncRNAs

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNA (LncRNA) is defined as an RNA transcript that does not encode any protein, with a length longer than 200 nt. Based on the recent advances in high-throughput sequencing techniques, a large number of lncRNAs have been characterized as functional transcripts that play important roles in various biological processes as well as pathologic states. In a research field of ...

Intersecting transcriptomic profiling technologies and long non-coding RNA function in lung adenocarcinoma

lncrna

Previously thought of as junk transcripts and pseudogene remnants, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have come into their own over the last decade as an essential component of cellular activity, regulating a plethora of functions within multicellular organisms. lncRNAs are now known to participate in development, cellular homeostasis, immunological processes, and the development of disease. With the advent of next generation ...

Genomics 2.0: The Importance of RNA Biology

from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle by Stephen Dewhurst – The ability to sequence the human genome has transformed the way we approach science and medicine.  But understanding our DNA is really only the first step in the Genomics revolution. The same DNA is present in each and every cell of our bodies – yet each of those cells is ...

Featured long non-coding RNA – TINCR

The human genome encodes several thousand long non-protein coding transcripts>200 nucleotides in length, a subset of which were shown to play important roles in regulation of gene expression. Researchers at the University of Regensburg, Germany recently identified TINCR, a lncRNA required for induction of key differentiation genes in epidermal tissue, including genes mutated in human skin diseases characterized by disrupted ...
