Biotech company SomaGenics Inc announced on Tuesday the expansion of its small RNA
analysis IP protection via the issuance of three new patents from the US Patent and Trademark Office as well as an expected patent from the European Patent Office.
But he found them by testing a class of small RNAs
, called small interfering (si)RNAs, scientists use to suppress gene activity.
A partial SEOV small RNA
sequence was obtained from a serum sample, as shown by a BLAST search.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have identified a small RNA
molecule called miR-182 that can suppress cancer-causing genes in mice with glioblastoma mulitforme (GBM), a deadly and incurable type of brain tumor.
We obtained a total of 165 million reads from 8 CFS small RNA
sequencing libraries (see online Supplemental Table 1).
Then, the clean reads were compared against the non-coding (ncRNAs) (rRNAs, tRNAs, snRNAs, and snoRNA) deposited in the NCBI GenBank and the Rfam databases using BLAST to annotate the small RNA
Specific impact of tobamovirus infection on the Arabidopsis small RNA
The topics include the role of hematopoietic progenitor cells in retroviral pathogenesis, applying proteomics to study the pathogenesis and enhance diagnosis of HTLV-1, cellular factors involved in HIV-1 RNA transport, syncyins in normal and pathological placentas, non-human primates in HIV-1 research, retrovirus restriction factors, and HIV-1 interactions with small RNA
induced silencing mechanisms.
Study after study is revealing that small RNA
molecules play surprising and essential roles in cellular mechanisms that we thought we already understood," Mr.
A small RNA
molecule called miR-26 shows promise in predicting survival and response to adjuvant interferon treatment in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, according to a new study.
A small RNA
molecule, known as a microRNA, may help physicians identify liver cancer patients who, in spite of their poor prognosis, could respond well to treatment with a biological agent called interferon.
Viroids resemble viruses, but consist of only small RNA
molecules that do not have the protein coat found on viruses and that do not encode any proteins.
