Systematic computational analysis of potential rnai regulation in toxoplasma gondii
RNA interference (RNAi) is the mechanism through which RNA interferes with the production of other RNAs in a sequence specific manner. Micro RNA (miRNA) is a type of RNA which is transcribed as pri-miRNAs and processed to ...
Comparison of four Ab initio MicroRNA prediction tools
MicroRNAs are small RNA sequences of 18-24 nucleotides in length, which serve as templates to drive post transcriptional gene silencing. The canonical microRNA pathway starts with transcription from DNA and is followed by ...
EPO mediates neurotrophic, neuroprotective, anti-oxidant, and anti-apoptotic effects via downregulation of miR-451 and miR-885-5p in SH-SY5Y neuron-like cells
(Frontiers Media, 2014-09)
Erythropoietin (EPO) is a neuroprotective cytokine, which has been applied in several animal models presenting neurological disorders. One of the proposed modes of action resulting in neuroprotection is post-transcriptional ...
