Le coeur des ARN non codants - Un long chemin à découvrir [In the heart of noncoding RNA: a long way to go].
Médecine Sciences : M/s
The identification and characterization of long noncoding RNA in a variety of tissues represent major achievements that contribute to our understanding of the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression. In particular, long noncoding RNA play crucial roles in the epigenetic regulation of the adaptive response to environmental cues via their capacity to target chromatin modifiers to specific locus. In addition, these transcripts have been implicated in controlling splicing, translation and degradation of messenger RNA. Long noncoding RNA have also been shown to act as decoy molecules for microRNA. In the heart, a few long noncoding RNA have been demonstrated to regulate cardiac commitment and differentiation during development. Furthermore, recent findings suggest their involvement as regulators of the pathophysiological response to injury in the adult heart. Their high cellular specificity makes them attractive target molecules for innovative therapies and ideal biomarkers.
