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 ›
Micro RNAs (miRNAs) have recently emerged as key regulators of metabolic processes! . More and more evidence is accumulating that suggest that the dysregulation of miRNAs may contribute to metabolic abnormalities such as the misregulation of cholesterol and lipid metabolism, insulin… 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….

MicroRNAs are small non-coding single-stranded RNA molecules MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding single-stranded RNA molecules consisting of approximately 21 to 22 nucleotides that regulate posttranscriptional gene expression in metazoans and plants. miRNAs are usually generated from noncoding regions of gene… Read More ›
