  • Total RNA from 1 X 10(7) cells was extracted, transferred to a membrane, and hybridized with a 32P-labeled, full-length (1650-base pair) rat angiotensinogen complementary DNA (cDNA). (ahajournals.org)
  • The discovery of messenger RNA more than twenty years ago led to a series of studies on its organization and function in cells in the presence of infecting viruses. (springer.com)
  • While it was known that the messenger RNA molecules associated with the cancerous cells were shorter than those with healthy cells, the mechanism by which this occurred was not understood. (science20.com)
  • The research team discovered that a protein called CFIm25 is critical to keeping messenger RNA long in healthy cells and that its reduction promotes tumor growth. (science20.com)
  • That's short for messenger RNA, which is how your DNA sends blueprints to the protein-assembly factories of your cells. (salk.edu)
  • Triton X-100 extraction of follicle cells yielded a filamentous CF containing approximately 70% of the total poly (A) but only 9% of the total lipid, 23% of the total protein, and 28% of the total RNA. (rupress.org)

  • In the case of mRNA, a number of modifications are possible, such as C-to-U editing in some chloroplast and mitochondrial transcripts ( Shikanai, 2006 ) or A-to-I deamination, found in some animal RNAs ( Zhang and Carmichael, 2001 ). (plantcell.org)
  • Appropriately called messenger RNA, these molecules take the information inside genes and use it to make body tissues. (science20.com)
  • Previous reports showed that herpes simplex virus RNA entering the cytoplasm has a terminal oligonucleotide structure consistent with 7mG(5')ppp-(5')XmpYmpNp and that, whereas the viral RNA made early in infection contained methylated mononucleotides, the RNA made late did not. (eurekamag.com)
  • In the past few years, a variety of bright and photo-stable labelling techniques have been developed to generate sufficient contrast for imaging of single endogenous RNAs in vivo . (biologists.org)
  • Although the concepts presented are applicable to all types of RNA, we showcase here the wealth of information gained from in vivo imaging of single particles by discussing studies investigating dynamics of intranuclear trafficking, nuclear pore transport and cytoplasmic transport of endogenous messenger RNA.

  • That the RNA was intact was ensured by hybridizing duplicate Northern blots to a 32P-labeled actin cDNA. (ahajournals.org)
  • The missense mutations G207D and R229P did not show NMD although R229P exhibited moderate RNA instability. (diabetesjournals.org)
