Rnas

RNA, satellite

small, linear single-stranded rNA molecules functionally acting as molecular parasites of certain RNA plant viruses. Satellite rnas exhibit four characteristic traits: 1) they require helper viruses to replicate; 2) they are unnecessary for the replication of helper viruses; 3) they are encapsidated in the coat protein of the helper virus; 4) they have no extensive sequence homology to the helper virus. Thus they differ from satellite viruses which encode their own coat protein, and from the genomic RNA (=RNA, viral) of satellite viruses.

Classification of non-coding RNA

We wish to share RNAcon, a web-server for the prediction and classification of non-coding RNAs. It uses SVM-based model for the discrimination between coding and ncRNAs and RandomForest-based prediction model for the classification of ncRNAs into different classes. The ...

Re: Comprehensive List of long noncoding RNA(lncRNA) databases

This new database could be useful to many researchers interested in lncRNAs involved in respiratory infections caused by influenza and SARS-CoV viruses: (1) MONOCLdb , the MOuse NOnCode Lung database, a database for mouse long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) involved ...

miRNA-mediated competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) networks

Competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) hypothesis: ceRNAs regulate other RNA transcripts (e.g., PTEN) by competing for shared microRNAs. They are playing important roles in developmental, physiological and pathological processes, such as ...

Living or not? (viruses,viroids and prions).

... of RNA into protein. Megavirus has those plus a few more, including additional genes that attach amino acids (components of proteins) onto RNAs for use in translation. Clearly, the common genes suggest that the viruses share a common ancestor. This leaves two possibilities for the novel ...

miRNA-lncRNA interaction databases

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) represent the leading edge of cancer research. However, their identity, function, and dysregulation in various human diseases are only beginning to be understood. Several papers have revealed lncRNA ...
