'Insulator' helps silence genes in dormant herpes virus

... genes that would cause it to replicate. In this dormant state, only a tiny fragment of the virus genome ?a single gene called the Latency-Associated transcript gene (LAT) ?remains active. Scientists have long puzzled over the mechanism used to keep this small region of the genome going while nearby genes ...

MicroRNAs as tumor suppressors

... that are associated with human tumors, the researchers found that in normal cells, a microRNA called let-7 binds to the 3?end of the HMGA2 mRNA transcript and suppresses its expression in the cell cytosol. However, chromosomal breaks that shorten the 3?end of the HMGA2 transcript, and prevent let-7 ...

Nobel Laureate finds 'elegant' explanation for DNA transcribing enzyme's high fidelity

... the researchers explained. Common features include an unwound region of about 15 base pairs of the DNA with some eight residues of the RNA transcript hybridized with the DNA in the center of the “transcription bubble.?The enzyme polymerases involved are capable of moving both forward and backward ...

Infected for life

... virus-1 (HSV-1), the virus that causes cold sores and ocular keratitis, produces an miRNA molecule. This miRNA is encoded by the Latency-Associated transcript gene (LAT) in the viral genome and works through a process called RNA interference to prevent normal cell death or apoptosis. Thus, the latent viral ...

Non-coding RNAs help silence the mammalian transcription

... and colleagues (Princeton University) lend new insight into the mechanism of genomic imprinting, demonstrating a necessary role for a non-coding RNA transcript in the silencing of an imprinted gene cluster in mice. Imprinting, or the differential expression of a gene based upon which parent it has been ...

Mammalian Transcriptome Mapped

... into RNA. Antisense transcription is the "reverse" expression of genomic DNA. If the same molecule of DNA is transcribed into antisense RNA, then the transcript has the reverse sequence as the original DNA sequence. Antisense RNA transcripts can exert function because they can bind to the RNA transcripts ...
