Join us to learn how lncRNA impacts cancer and microRNA regulation!

Long noncoding RNA are a non-protein-coding RNA species >200 nt in length that have been the subject of intense scrutiny recently. Research in the last several years has revealed roles for lncRNA in gene regulation at many levels – transcription, post-transcription, and in epigenetic modification. Many lncRNAs are dysregulated in various cancer types and are… Read article →


Micropeptides: a twist in the lncRNA story

Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) research has exploded in recent years, indicating potential roles for these molecules in regulation of gene expression at the transcriptional, post-transcriptional and epigenetic levels. Recently, an even greater level of complexity was introduced with the realization that some RNAs currently classified as lncRNAs are apparently not noncoding after all. While they’re… Read article →


New advances in long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) research

As a novel class of RNA, long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) plays important roles in gene regulation via a variety of mechanisms. Current research is deepening our understanding of the complex and sometimes contradictory roles of lncRNA. For example, lncRNAs can compete with transcription, but at other times they can support transcription, recruiting specific epigenetic factors… Read article →
