Latest Long noncoding RNA Stories
A new study opens doors to understanding prostate cancer with the identification of a potential new pathway in prostate cancer cells by which cancer-driving gene products can be created.
Researchers have identified a potential new pathway in prostate cancer cells by which cancer-driving gene products can be generated.
Melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer, estimated by the National Cancer Institute to afflict more than 70,000 people in the United States annually and the incidence rate continues to rise.
Whitehead Institute scientists have identified conserved, long intervening non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs) that play key roles during brain development in zebrafish, and went on to show that the human versions of these RNAs can substitute for the zebrafish lincRNAs.
A long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) prevents programmed cell death during one of the final stages of red blood cell differentiation.
Cells develop and thrive by turning genes on and off as needed in a precise pattern, a process known as regulated gene transcription.
A new technique developed by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine allows researchers to identify the exact DNA sequences and locations bound by regulatory RNAs.
Scientists at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have discovered that a mysterious class of large RNAs plays a central role in embryonic development, contrary to the dogma that proteins alone are the master regulators of this process.
Traditionally, RNA was mostly known as the messenger molecule that carries protein-making instructions from a cell's nucleus to the cytoplasm.
Over the past decades, researchers seeking to understand molecular mechanisms underlying various diseases, notably cancer, have taken advantage of DNA microarrays to interrogate tissues specimen of patients for the expression status of thousands of genes at once.
