This invention relates to the use of tumor-derived or associated extracellular ribonucleic acid (RNA) found circulating in the plasma or serum fraction of blood for the detection, monitoring, or evaluation of cancer or premalignant conditions. Extracellular RNA may circulate as non-bound RNA, protein-bound RNA, lipid-RNA complexes, lipoprotein (proteolipid)-RNA complexes, protein-RNA complexes including within or in association with ribonucleoprotein complexes, nucleosomes, or within apoptotic bodies. Any intracellular RNA found in plasma or serum can additionally be detected by this invention. Specifically, this invention enables the extraction of circulating RNA from plasma or serum and utilizes nucleic acid amplification assays for the identification, detection, inference, monitoring, or evaluation of any neoplasm, benign, premalignant, or malignant, in humans or other animals, which might be associated with that RNA. Further, this invention allows the qualitative or quantitative detection of tumor
Peripheral blood is the most promising source of RNA biomarkers for diagnostic and epidemiological studies, because the presence of disease and prognostic information is reflected in the gene expression pattern. Quality RNA is used by a number of different downstream applications, so the selection of the most appropriate RNA stabilization and purification method is important. We have analyzed the RNA purified from 300 blood samples from 25 donors processed by two technicians using three methodologies with Tempus and PaxGene tubes. The best quality sample results were obtained with the Tempus Spin RNA Isolation Kit and the PaxGene Blood miRNA Kit, although larger amounts of RNA were obtained with the Tempus Spin RNA Isolation Kit. Lower Cq values were observed for RNA and miRNA genes in samples that were tested with PaxGene Blood miRNA Kit and Tempus Spin RNA Isolation Kit respectively. We identify the Tempus Spin RNA Isolation Kit as the most robust methodology, whilst the MagMax for Stabilized Blood

TY - JOUR. T1 - Microbial identification by immunohybridization assay of artificial RNA labels. AU - Kourentzi, Katerina D.. AU - Fox, George E.. AU - Willson, Richard C.. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and engineered stable artificial RNAs (aRNAs) are frequently used to monitor bacteria in complex ecosystems. In this work, we describe a solid-phase immunocapture hybridization assay that can be used with low molecular weight RNA targets. A biotinylated DNA probe is efficiently hybridized in solution with the target RNA, and the DNA-RNA hybrids are captured on streptavidin-coated plates and quantified using a DNA-RNA heteroduplex-specific antibody conjugated to alkaline phosphatase. The assay was shown to be specific for both 5S rRNA and low molecular weight (LMW) artificial RNAs and highly sensitive, allowing detection of as little as 5.2 ng (0.15 pmol) in the case of 5S rRNA. Target RNAs were readily detected even in the presence of excess nontarget RNA. Detection using DNA ...

This chapter relates the intricate architecture of the L11-RNA complex to previous studies that delineated crucial features of the RNA tertiary structure and protein-RNA interface. In describing the structure, it is interesting to note how conservation and variation of different nucleotides and amino acids serve as a guide to critical features of the complex, and the authors use the extreme conservation of some bases to speculate about functional surfaces of the rRNA domain. Lastly, the chapter discusses the possibility that the functional role of L11-C76 is to promote a correct RNA tertiary fold. Relatively few RNA structures that have noncanonical interactions have been determined at atomic resolution, and of these only tRNA and the P4-P6 domain of group I intron have extensive tertiary structure. From nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) studies of the free L11 RNA binding domain (L11-C76), it was known that the protein folds into three α-helices that are superimposable on the α-helices of the
We have used laser tweezers to unfold single RNA molecules at room temperature and in physiological-type solvents. The forces necessary to unfold the RNAs are over the range 10-20 pN, forces that can be generated by cellular enzymes. The Gibbs free energy for the unfolding of TAR (transactivation-responsive) RNA from HIV was found to be increased after the addition of argininamide; the TAR hairpin was stabilized. The rate of unfolding was decreased and the rate of folding was increased by argininamide.. ...

Existing computational methods for RNA secondary-structure prediction tacitly assume RNA to only encode functional RNA structures. However, experimental studies have revealed that some RNA sequences, e.g. compact viral genomes, can simultaneously encode functional RNA structures as well as proteins, and evidence is accumulating that this phenomenon may also be found in Eukaryotes. We here present the first comparative method, called RNA-DECODER, which explicitly takes the known protein-coding context of an RNA-sequence alignment into account in order to predict evolutionarily conserved secondary-structure elements, which may span both coding and non-coding regions. RNA-DECODER employs a stochastic context-free grammar together with a set of carefully devised phylogenetic substitution-models, which can disentangle and evaluate the different kinds of overlapping evolutionary constraints which arise. We show that RNA-DECODERs parameters can be automatically trained to successfully fold known secondary
Commercially available RNA extraction kits are rapid, capable of high-throughput analysis and cost-effective [1]. The isolation of DNA-free RNA is crucial to the success of highly sensitive assays like RT-PCR. RNA extraction procedures frequently result in RNA preparations that are highly contaminated with genomic DNA, which often leads to false-positive RT-PCR outcomes. The presence of DNA in an RNA sample can be detected easily by an appropriate PCR test of an indicator gene. Then, if necessary, treatment of the RNA preparation with DNase I will usually eliminate, or at least substantially reduce, the content of DNA [2].. The RNA concentration of a sample is commonly determined via measurement of absorbance at a wavelength of 260 nm (A260). The purity of the RNA sample can be determined using the A260/A280 ratio as a reference (a value of ~2.0 is considered pure RNA). However, the accuracy of this method is questionable, because protein contamination can cause an overestimation (,50%) of RNA ...
By understanding the levels of RNA found in cells, scientists can better understand gene regulation and expression. Extraction of high quality RNA is the first and most vital step in performing many molecular biological techniques. RNA degrades relatively quickly so its important to have a method that will isolate purified RNA while also minimizing degradation. In this application note, the potential of the Bead Ruptor Elite is evaluated for the extraction of RNA from porcine skin.

RNA structure is important for RNA function and regulation, and there is growing interest in determining the RNA structure of many transcripts. Here we provide a detailed protocol for the parallel analysis of RNA structure (PARS) for probing RNA secondary structures genome-wide. In this method, enzymatic footprinting is coupled to high-throughput sequencing to provide secondary structure data for thousands of RNAs simultaneously. The entire experimental protocol takes ∼5 d to complete, and sequencing and data analysis take an additional 6-8 d. PARS was developed using the yeast genome as proof of principle, but its approach should be applicable to probing RNA structures from different transcriptomes and structural dynamics under diverse solution conditions.

where 40 is the average extinction coefficient for RNA. In addition, the A260/A280 ratio can be used to estimate RNA purity. An A260/A280 ratio between 1.8 and 2.1 indicates a highly pure RNA sample.. UV spectroscopy is relatively simple to perform but has several drawbacks. It does not discriminate between RNA and DNA so it is advisable to DNAse treat RNA samples before quantifying. DNA in the sample will lead to an overestimation of RNA concentration. Since proteins and residual phenol from the purification can interfere with absorbance readings, it is important to remove these contaminants in purification. Also, absorbance readings are dependent on pH and ionic strength. Dilute RNA samples in TE (pH 8.0) and use TE to blank the spectrophotometer before taking absorbance readings.. An alternative method for quantifying RNA samples is to use fluorescent dyes such as RiboGreen (Invitrogen). RiboGreen exhibits a strong fluorescent signal when bound to nucleic acids. Samples are quantified in a ...

The central dogma of biology describes the flow of genetic information from DNA to RNA to proteins. While RNA was originally believed to be a carrier of genetic information, subsequent work has shown something completely different: RNA is now known to have function independent of proteins, with a rich layer of regulatory networks. In fact, a large amount of the RNA present in a cell does not actually make proteins. This increased appreciation and understanding has led to many fascinating mechanistic insights into RNA and its role as a central player in cellular regulation and human disease.. Helping to facilitate RNA function are a large number of proteins that can bind to and regulate RNA. These RNA-binding proteins, or RBPs, number in the thousands and are made up of many different independent modular segments similar to a childs set of building blocks. In much a similar fashion, these blocks or domains provide nature with a way of mixing and matching different domains to generate new ...

Debido al estado altamente heterocromatinizado del telómero se pensaba que el final de los cromosomas no era transcrito. Sin embargo, hace una década se demostró que los telómeros se transcriben en una familia de lncRNAs denominados Telomeric repeat-containing RNA o TERRA. En los últimos años, un gran número de funciones diferentes han sido asociadas a estos transcritos. Sin embargo, la falta de modelos genéticos KO para TERRA ha impedido confirmar estas funciones en sistemas celulares. La falta de modelos se debe mayoritariamente a que su origen subtelomérico no está claro. En humanos, los estudios más recientes han propuesto que TERRA se podría transcribir de 18 loci diferentes, dificultando en gran medida la generación de células KO para TERRA. Uno de los principales objetivos de mi tesis, ha sido identificar los posibles loci de TERRA humanos, con el objetivo de generar células humanas KO para TERRA. Primero evaluamos los 18 loci previamente descritos, encontrando que el 80% ...

By the analysis of thermodynamic RNA secondary structure predictions, we previously obtained evidence for evolutionarily conserved large-scale ordering of RNA virus genomes (P. Simmonds, A. Tuplin, and D.J. Evans, RNA 10: 1337-1351, 2004). Genome-scale ordered RNA structure (GORS) was widely distributed in many animal and plant viruses, much greater in extent than RNA structures required for viral translation or replication, but in mammalian viruses was associated with host persistence. To substantiate the existence of large-scale RNA structure differences between viruses, a large set of alignments of mammalian RNA viruses and rRNA sequences as controls were examined by thermodynamic methods (to calculate minimum free energy differences) and by algorithmically independent RNAz and Pfold methods. These methods produced generally concordant results and identified substantial differences in the degrees of evolutionarily conserved, sequence order-dependent RNA secondary structure between virus ...

Author Summary Last year, we reported that circular RNA isoforms, previously thought to be very rare, are actually a pervasive feature of eukaryotic gene expression programs; indeed, the major RNA isoform from hundreds of human genes is a circle. Previous novel RNA species that initially appeared to be special cases, of dubious biological significance, have subsequently proved to have critical, conserved biological roles. An almost universal characteristic of regulatory macromolecules is that they are themselves regulated during development and differentiation. Here, we show that the repertoire of genes expressing circular RNA, the relative levels of circular: linear transcripts from each gene, and even the pattern of splice isoforms of circular RNAs from each gene were cell-type specific, including examples of striking regulation. In humans, we estimate that circular RNA may account for about 1% as many molecules as poly(A) RNA. The ubiquity of circular RNA and its specific regulation could
A common problem for researchers working with RNA is to determine the three-dimensional structure of the molecule. However, in the case of RNA much of the final structure is determined by the secondary structure or intra-molecular base-pairing interactions of the molecule. This is shown by the high conservation of base-pair across diverse species. One of the first attempts to predict RNA secondary structure was made by Ruth Nussinov and co-workers who used dynamic programming method for maximising the number of base-pairs [1]. However, there are several issues with this approach, most importantly the solution is not unique. Nussinov et al published an adaptation of their approach to use a simple nearest-neighbour energy model in 1980 [2]. Michael Zuker and Patrick Stiegler in 1981 proposed using a slightly refined dynamic programming approach that models nearest neighbour energy interactions that directly incorporates stacking into the prediction [3]. The energies that are minimized by the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Improved deoxyribozymes for synthesis of covalently branched DNA and RNA. AU - Lee, Christine S.. AU - Mui, Timothy P.. AU - Silverman, Scott K.. PY - 2011/1/17. Y1 - 2011/1/17. N2 - A covalently branched nucleic acid can be synthesized by joining the 2′-hydroxyl of the branch-site ribonucleotide of a DNA or RNA strand to the activated 5′-phosphorus of a separate DNA or RNA strand. We have previously used deoxyribozymes to synthesize several types of branched nucleic acids for experiments in biotechnology and biochemistry. Here, we report in vitro selection experiments to identify improved deoxyribozymes for synthesis of branched DNA and RNA. Each of the new deoxyribozymes requires Mn2+ as a cofactor, rather than Mg2+ as used by our previous branch-forming deoxyribozymes, and each has an initially random region of 40 rather than 22 or fewer combined nucleotides. The deoxyribozymes all function by forming a three-helix-junction (3HJ) complex with their two oligonucleotide ...
Understanding interactions between proteins and RNA is key to deciphering the mechanisms of many important biological processes. Here we describe RNABindR, a web-based server that identifies and displays RNA-binding residues in known protein-RNA complexes and predicts RNA-binding residues in proteins of unknown structure. RNABindR uses a distance cutoff to identify which amino acids contact RNA in solved complex structures (from the Protein Data Bank) and provides a labeled amino acid sequence and a Jmol graphical viewer in which RNA-binding residues are displayed in the context of the three-dimensional structure. Alternatively, RNABindR can use a Naive Bayes classifier trained on a non-redundant set of protein-RNA complexes from the PDB to predict which amino acids in a protein sequence of unknown structure are most likely to bind RNA. RNABindR automatically displays high specificity and high sensitivity predictions of RNA-binding residues. RNABindR is freely available at http://bindr.gdcb.iastate
2 -O-Methyl guanosine G is classified as a 2 -O-Methyl RNA monomer. 2 -O-Methyl nucleotides are most commonly used to confer nuclease resistance to an oligo designed for anti-sense, siRNA or aptamer-based research, diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, when specific 2 -OH is not required. Nuclease resistance can be further enhanced by phosphorothiolation of appropriate internucleotide linkages within the oligo.. The hydrogen bonding behavior of a 2 -O-Methyl RNA/RNA base pair is closer to that of an RNA/RNA base pair than a DNA/RNA base pair. Consequently, the presence of 2 -O-Methyl nucleotides improves duplex stability. Indeed, incorporation of a 2 -O-Methyl nucleotide into an anti-sense oligo (resulting in a 2 -O-Methyl RNA/DNA chimeric), lead to a increase in the Tm of its duplex with RNA, relative to that formed by an unmodified anti-sense DNA oligo, of 1.3 C per 2 -O-Methyl RNA residue added (2). Moreover, from a synthesis standpoint, the coupling efficiency of 2 -O-Methyl phosphoramidites ...
RNA is crucial for protein production. As DNA cannot leave the nucleus the relevant sections are transcribed into messenger RNA (mRNA) and transported to the ribosomes where proteins are produced. At the ribosome, transfer RNA (tRNA) facilitates the addition of the correct amino acids to the polypeptide chain which ultimately becomes the protein. The ribosomes themselves are formed of proteins and ribosomal RNA (rRNA).. An additional type of RNA, known as signal recognition particle RNA (SRP RNA), is involved in the control of translation and sorting of membrane and secreted proteins.. By sequencing RNA, it is possible to establish which genes are actively producing proteins and which are not. This can be useful in identifying aberrant gene activity and potential drug targets to inhibit or enhance gene activity to alter gene expression.. In addition to its role in protein production in eukaryotes some viruses have RNA genomes, including influenza, polio, and measles. ...

AU - Gutell, Robin R.. AU - Ren, Pengyu. PY - 2009/8/28. Y1 - 2009/8/28. N2 - The accurate prediction of the secondary and tertiary structure of an RNA with different folding algorithms is dependent on several factors, including the energy functions. However, an RNA higher-order structure cannot be predicted accurately from its sequence based on a limited set of energy parameters. The inter- and intramolecular forces between this RNA and other small molecules and macromolecules, in addition to other factors in the cell such as pH, ionic strength, and temperature, influence the complex dynamics associated with transition of a single stranded RNA to its secondary and tertiary structure. Since all of the factors that affect the formation of an RNAs 3D structure cannot be determined experimentally, statistically ...
An intron is any nucleotide sequence within a gene that is removed by RNA splicing to generate the final mature RNA product of a gene.[1][2]The term intron refers to both the DNA sequence within a gene, and the corresponding sequence in RNA transcripts.[3] Sequences that are joined together in the final mature RNA after RNA splicing are exons. Introns are found in the genes of most organisms and many viruses, and can be located in a wide range of genes, including those that generate proteins, ribosomal RNA (rRNA), and transfer RNA (tRNA). When proteins are generated from intron-containing genes, RNA splicing takes place as part of the RNA processing pathway that followstranscription and precedes translation ...

RNA quantification and QC are critical to successful downstream RT-PCR, microarray and RNAseq analyses, as the results are heavily impacted by the purity and integrity of the input RNA. Conventional methods for assessing RNA integrity such as denaturing gel electrophoresis, have been replaced in recent years by more convenient microfluidics- or capillary-based technologies. These new automated methods are advantageous, requiring less sample input while providing standardized processing with an objective RNA integrity assessment. Different companies have established their own RNA quality indicator numbers, based on proprietary algorithms considering various electrophoretic features of the analyzed samples ...
For removal of genomic DNA from RNA samples, a DNase I treatment is recommended. The DNAse I enzyme is classified as an endonuclease which is able to digest single and double-stranded DNA into single bases or oligonucleotides. The enzyme is DNA specific without negative effect on the integrity of the remaining RNA (Vanecko and Lasbowski, 1961).. DNase I treatment can be performed at the same time as the RNA isolation. This convenient procedure is used in the High Pure RNA Isolation Kit. The DNase I enzyme is included in the kit, and is directly applied during the spin column isolation procedure. The RNA is bound to the silica fleece in the presence of chaotropic salts, and the DNase I is directly applied and incubated with the purified RNA on the spin column. The digested DNA is subsequently washed from the spin column, leading to pure RNA eluted from the spin column.. In order to protect the isolated RNA, the DNase I Enzyme used should be of RNase-free quality. The recombinant DNase I Enzyme, ...

I have seen so many people freak out about having an RNase-Free environment. Washing benches, buying special tips and tubes, using special RNase removal reagents, etc. This is usually completely unnecessary. RNases are not gas-phase molecules (ask any mass spectroscopist what it takes to get proteins into the gas phase), once you have purified the RNA, any RNase that gets into your samples is from poor lab technique. Wear gloves. Remember that when you handle a pipettor with bare hands, you load it with RNase, this will transfer to your gloves and get on other things. Keyboards and mice are RNase farms too, be mindful of your hands. The RNA you prep should only see the inside of clean tubes or tips. If no humans handled them, then they are most likely fine. Dust settling from the air will provide plenty of RNase if you want it, so keep tubes and tips covered as a general rule, but aside from that, dont panic. Also, gel running equipment: think about it, under denaturing conditions, no magic ...

The sample is first lysed and homogenized in a special denaturing buffer, spun to pellet RNA and undigested particles, and then the supernatant is applied to a HiBind® DNA spin column to bind DNA. The RNA pellet is dissolved and purified by a HiBind® RNA spin column. Since there is no need to divide the sample into two parts for separate purification procedures, maximum yield of DNA and RNA can be purified from the entire sample.. ...
The Broad Institute and MIT scientists who first harnessed CRISPR for mammalian genome editing have engineered a new molecular system for efficiently editing RNA in human cells. RNA editing, which can alter gene products without making changes to the genome, has profound potential as a tool for both research and disease treatment.. In a paper published today in Science, senior author Feng Zhang and his team describe the new CRISPR-based system, called RNA Editing for Programmable A to I Replacement, or REPAIR. The system can change single RNA nucleotides in mammalian cells in a programmable and precise fashion. REPAIR has the ability to reverse disease-causing mutations at the RNA level, as well as other potential therapeutic and basic science applications.. The ability to correct disease-causing mutations is one of the primary goals of genome editing, says Zhang, a core institute member of the Broad Institute, an investigator at the McGovern Institute, and the James and Patricia Poitras 63 ...
Does very low or very high free energy ensure a successful design?. No. In nature, RNA does not always adopt its minimum free energy structure. Furthermore, the tools used to predict the minimum free energy structure are imperfect.. What is the optimal free energy?. No specific value of free energy is ideal. Most successful lab designs do not attempt achieve the maximum or minimum value of free energy possible for a given secondary structure.. Why shouldnt I use all GC pairs in a lab design?. GC-rich sequences are difficult to synthesize and prone to being caught in folding traps. Furthermore, the use of only one type of base pair increases the likelihood of undesired pairing.. Why shouldnt I use all AU or GU pairs in a lab design?. AU and GU pairs are weaker than GC pairs. Alone, they are unlikely to hold an RNA molecule in a specific structure. Furthermore, the use of only one type of base pair increases the likelihood of undesired pairing.. What is the optimal balance of AU, GU, and ...
RNA editing is a molecular process through which some cells can make discrete changes to specific nucleotide sequences within a RNA molecule after it has been generated by RNA polymerase. RNA editing is relatively rare, and common forms of RNA processing (e.g. splicing, 5-capping, and 3-polyadenylation) are not usually included as editing. Editing events may include the insertion, deletion, and base substitution of nucleotides within the edited RNA molecule. RNA editing has been observed in some tRNA, rRNA, mRNA, or miRNA molecules of eukaryotes and their viruses, archaea, and prokaryotes. RNA editing occurs in the cell nucleus and cytosol, as well as within mitochondria and plastids. In vertebrates, editing is rare and usually consists of a small number of changes to the sequence of affected molecules. In other organisms, extensive editing (pan-editing) can occur; in some cases the majority of nucleotides in a mRNA sequence may result from editing. RNA-editing processes show great molecular ...
The RNAKinetics server (http://www.ig-msk.ru/RNA/kinetics) is a web interface for the newly developed RNAKinetics software. The software models the dynamics of RNA secondary structure by the means of kinetic analysis of folding transitions of a growing RNA molecule. The result of the modeling is a kinetic ensemble, i.e. a collection of RNA structures that are endowed with probabilities, which depend on time. This approach gives comprehensive probabilistic description of RNA folding pathways, revealing important kinetic details that are not captured by the traditional structure prediction methods. The access to the RNAKinetics server is free. ...

To whom it may concern, The question was, how is DNA better suited than RNA to carry genetic information. Unfortunately, this is almost a philosophical question, since there really is no way of knowing for certain how the roles of DNA and RNA evolved. There may not BE an answer. Our evolutionary description of the role of DNA and RNA in biology comes from a number of observations, though we may never be able to say for certain how evolution has selected these functions. Ill assume you know enough about the chemistry of RNA and DNA to bypass some of the normal introductory discussion. The only chemical difference between RNA and DNA is the presence of 2OH on the ribose of RNA. This has pronounced effects on the structure and stability of RNA as compared to DNA. The most obvious changes observed between ribose and deoxyribose sugars are in the distribution of sugar puckers; C3-endo versus C2-endo conformations dominate duplex RNA and DNA, respectively (Note that single deoxy- or ...

RNA-vázající proteiny se aktivně účastní transcripce a maturace RNA a jsou tak nedílnou součástí živé buňky. Tato práce se zabývá proteiny rozpoznávající RNA a snaží se je představit jako velmi rozmanitou skupinu. Domény rozpoznávající RNA jsou sice relativně malé a jejich typů není mnoho, přesto si osvojily schopnost vázat různé sekvence a struktury RNA molekul. Pomocí přídavných strukturovaných elementů nebo kombinací několika domén současně je umožněno rozpoznávat delší sekvence RNA a dosáhnout tak větší specificity interakce. Tato práce se zaměřuje na kvasinkový protein Nrd1, který obsahuje kromě RNA-rozpoznávajícího motivu také přídatnou doménu se smyčkami a helixy, a díky tomu dokáže vázat různé RNA sekvence. Pro strukturní studium proteinu jsme použili nukleární magnetickou rezonanci a metodou fluorescenční anisotropie jsme charakterizovali vazbu RNA. Význam aminokyselin interagujících s RNA byl potvrzen ...
Regulation of gene expression, protein synthesis, replication and assembly of many viruses involve RNA-protein interactions. Although some successful computational tools have been reported to recognize RNA binding sites in proteins, the problem of specificity remains poorly investigated. After the nucleotide base composition, the dinucleotide is the smallest unit of RNA sequence information and many RNA-binding proteins simply bind to regions enriched in one dinucleotide. Interaction preferences of protein subsequences and dinucleotides can be inferred from protein-RNA complex structures, enabling a training-based prediction approach. We analyzed basic statistics of amino acid-dinucleotide contacts in protein-RNA complexes and found their pairing preferences could be identified. Using a standard approach to represent protein subsequences by their evolutionary profile, we trained neural networks to predict multiclass target vectors corresponding to 16 possible contacting dinucleotide subsequences. In the

In living cells, two major classes of ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules can be found. The first class called the messenger RNA (mRNA) contains the genetic information that allows the ribosome to read and translate it into proteins. The second class called non-coding RNA (ncRNA), do not code for proteins and are involved with key cellular processes, such as gene expression regulation, splicing, differentiation and development. NcRNAs fold into an ensemble of thermodynamically stable secondary structures, which will eventually lead the molecule to fold into a specific 3D structure. It is widely known that ncRNAs carry their functions via their 3D structure as well as their molecular composition. The secondary structure of ncRNAs is composed of different types of structural elements (motifs) such as stacking base pairs, internal loops, hairpin loops and pseudoknots. Pseudoknots are specifically difficult to model, are abundant in nature and known to stabilize the functional form of the molecule. Due ...

The RNA chaperone Hfq is a key player in small RNA (sRNA)-mediated regulation of target mRNAs in many bacteria. The absence of this protein causes pleiotropic phenotypes such as impaired stress regulation and, occasionally, loss of virulence. Hfq promotes rapid sRNA-target mRNA base pairing to allow for fast, adaptive responses. For this to happen, sRNAs and/or mRNAs must be bound by Hfq. However, when the intra- or extracellular environment changes, so does the intracellular RNA pool, and this, in turn, requires a correspondingly rapid change in the pool of Hfq-bound RNAs. Biochemical studies have suggested tight binding of Hfq to many RNAs, indicating very slow dissociation rates. In contrast, the changing pool of binding-competent RNAs must compete for access to this helper protein in a minute time frame (known response time for regulation). How rapid exchange of RNAs on Hfq in vivo can be reconciled with biochemically stable and very slowly dissociating Hfq-RNA complexes is the topic of this ...
Notice that A pairs with T and G pairs with C when a DNA strand hybridizes with another DNA strand. An RNA molecule can also form a base-paired DNA-RNA duplex molecule with a DNA that has complementary base pairing. The most common source of DNA complementary to an mRNA is the DNA coding strand that was the template for synthesis of the RNA. In DNA-RNA hybrid formation, G base pairs with C, A of the RNA pairs with T of the DNA, and U or the RNA pairs with A of the DNA. The DNA-RNA hybridization reaction is illustrated below: ...
The Central Dogma of biology holds, in famously simplified terms, that DNA makes RNA makes proteins, but there is considerable uncertainty regarding the general, genome-wide correlation between levels of RNA and corresponding proteins. Therefore, to assess degrees of this correlation we compared the RNA profiles (determined using both cDNA- and oligo-based microarrays) and protein profiles (determined immunohistochemically in tissue microarrays) of 1066 gene products in 23 human cell lines. A high mean correlation coefficient (0.52) was obtained from the pairwise comparison of RNA levels determined by the two platforms. Significant correlations, with correlation coefficients exceeding 0.445, between protein and RNA levels were also obtained for a third of the specific gene products. However, the correlation coefficients between levels of RNA and protein products of specific genes varied widely, and the mean correlations between the protein and corresponding RNA levels determined using the cDNA- and
2.4 Making an RNA copy of DNA. You may already know that it is RNA that carries the genetic code to ribosomes with instructions for protein synthesis. Our master DNA tape stays safely away from the action and sends messenger RNA out with the code.. One strand of DNA is copied into RNA using RNA polymerase. In order to copy the genetic code from DNA molecules, we need to copy one of the strands of the DNA into RNA using RNA polymerase and the same base paring principles that we used for DNA synthesis. Again we have the problem of gaining access to a tightly wound coil of DNA. The DNA must be unwound slightly to allow the enzyme to bind and begin copying the sequence.. Control regions are found upstream of the coding region of the gene. The binding only occurs at a region of the gene called the promoter region. This base sequence occurs before the 5 end of the gene (upstream) along with many other sequences that serve to control reading of the gene. Synthesis proceeds with the required base ...
