The long noncoding RNA ASNR regulates degradation of Bcl-2 mRNA through its interaction with AUF1

The identification and characterization of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in diverse biological processes has recently developed rapidly. The large amounts of non-coding RNAs scale consistent with developmental complexity in eukaryotes, indicating that most of these transcripts may have functions in the regulation of biological processes and disorder in the organisms. In...

Lateralization of gene expression in the honeybee brain during olfactory learning

In the last decade, it has been demonstrated that brain functional asymmetry occurs not only in vertebrates but also in invertebrates. However, the mechanisms underlying functional asymmetry remain unclear. In the present study, we trained honeybees of the same parentage and age, on the proboscis extension reflex (PER) paradigm with only one antenna in use. The comparisons of...

Analysis of the p53/CEP-1 regulated non-coding transcriptome in C. elegans by an NSR-seq strategy

, telomerase reverse transcriptase; TR, telomerase RNA. COMPLIANCE WITH ETHICS GUIDELINES Derong Xu, Guifeng Wei, Ping Lu, Jianjun Luo, Xiaomin Chen, Geir Skogerb? and Runsheng Chen declare that they have no

Identification of Intermediate-Size Non-Coding RNAs Involved in the UV-Induced DNA Damage Response in C. elegans

Background A network of DNA damage response (DDR) mechanisms functions coordinately to maintain genome integrity and prevent disease. The Nucleotide Excision Repair (NER) pathway is known to function in the response to UV-induced DNA damage. Although numbers of coding genes and miRNAs have been identified and reported to participate in UV-induced DNA damage response (UV-DDR), the...

Light-induced protein translocation by genetically encoded unnatural amino acid in Caenorhabditis elegans

Institute of Biophysics for technical support. Hao Chang, Mei Han, Wenming Huang, Guifeng Wei, Juanjuan Chen, Peng R. Chen, Runsheng Chen, Junlong Zhang, Tao Xu and Pingyong Xu declare that they have no

Regulatory elements of Caenorhabditis elegans ribosomal protein genes

Background Ribosomal protein genes (RPGs) are essential, tightly regulated, and highly expressed during embryonic development and cell growth. Even though their protein sequences are strongly conserved, their mechanism of regulation is not conserved across yeast, Drosophila, and vertebrates. A recent investigation of genomic sequences conserved across both nematode species and...

The Caenorhabditis elegans intermediate-size transcriptome shows high degree of stage-specific expression

Earlier studies have revealed a substantial amount of transcriptional activity occurring outside annotated protein-coding genes of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome. One important fraction of this transcriptional activity relates to intermediate-size (70–500 nt) transcripts (is-ncRNAs) of mostly unknown function. Profiling the expression of this segment of the transcriptome on a...
