Re: How did endosymbionts coordinate replication?

Regarding the regulation of replication of mitochondria, this paper discusses an influence of tumor necrosis factor alpha on mitochondrial replication while exploring the effect of adenosine on that regulatory system. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0098459 ...

miRNA-mediated competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) networks

ceRNABase have constructed pan-cancer ceRNA networks from tumor miRNA and mRNA expression profiles (TCGA 14 cancer types with >6000 tumor and normal samples). For example: known PTEN-ZEB2 ceRNA interactions can be supported in 13 cancer types .

Pan-Cancer pattern of lncRNAs, miRNAs, mRNAs

Dysregulation of miRNAs and lncRNAs can contribute to tumor formation and progression. Little is known about the expression profiles of lncRNAs and miRNAs across diverse cancer types. Pan-Cancer miRNA and lncRNA resources: (1) panCancerMine : explore ...
