Circular oligonucleotides are covalently closed singular DNA or RNA strands that are resistant to degradation by many cellular DNA and RNA decay machineries. [Source: (left) Modelling DNA; Phil. Trans. R. Soc. A-2006-Harris-3319-34; (right) David Goodsell: The self-splicing RNA in PDB… Read More ›
Recent research results indicate that viral sequences are part of us. Endogenous viral elements (EVEs) or endogenous retroviral elements (ERVs) have been identified in eukaryotic genomes including the human genome. The findings revealed the enormous scale of the invasion of… Read More ›
RNA FISH can be used to visualize subcellular locations of RNA or RNA-RBP complexes including the location of noncoding RNAs !
RNA FISH allows the identification and localization of noncoding RNAs in cells ! Ribonucleic Acid Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (RNA FISH) is a visualization technique that allows simultaneous detection, localization, and quantification of individual RNA molecules at the subcellular level….
