Some long non-coding RNAs are conventional after all
Science Codex
HEIDELBERG, 4 April 2014 – Not so long ago researchers thought that RNAs came in two types: coding RNAs that make proteins and non-coding RNAs that have structural roles. Then came the discovery of small RNAs that opened up whole new areas of ...

Long Non-Coding RNAs More Conventional Than Previously Thought - Science 2.0

Long Non-Coding RNAs More Conventional Than Previously Thought
Science 2.0
Some long non-coding RNAs can give rise to small proteins that have biological functions, according to a recent study that describes how researchers have used ribosome profiling to identify several hundred long non-coding RNAs that may give rise to ...

No Longer Junk: Role of Long Noncoding RNAs in Autism Risk - Newswise (press release)

No Longer Junk: Role of Long Noncoding RNAs in Autism Risk
Newswise (press release)
Newswise — RNA acts as the intermediary between genes and proteins, but the function of pieces of RNA that do not code for protein has, historically, been less clear. Researchers have ignored these noncoding RNAs until recently for not complying with ...

Long noncoding RNAs, emerging players in muscle differentiation and disease - 7thSpace Interactive (press release)

Long noncoding RNAs, emerging players in muscle differentiation and disease
7thSpace Interactive (press release)
Among them, long noncoding RNAs are the most numerous and functionally versatile class. Indeed, the lncRNA repertoire might be as rich as the proteome. LncRNAs have emerged as key regulators of gene expression at multiple levels. They play important ...

7thSpace Interactive (press release)
Results: We used the RNAseq data to update the existing grape gene prediction with 2,258 new coding genes and 3,336 putative long non-coding RNAs. Several gene structures have been improved and alternative splicing was described for about 30% of ...

Species-specific alternative splicing leads to unique expression of sno-lncRNAs - 7thSpace Interactive (press release)

Species-specific alternative splicing leads to unique expression of sno-lncRNAs
7thSpace Interactive (press release)
Intron-derived long noncoding RNAs with snoRNA ends (sno-lncRNAs) are highly expressed from the imprinted Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) region on human chromosome 15. However, sno-lncRNAs from other regions of the human genome or from other ...
