Epigenomics is a fast-evolving field of research that has lately attracted considerable interest, mainly due to the reversibility of epigenetic marks. Clinically, among solid tumors, the field is still limited. In cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) it is well known that the epigenetic landscape is deregulated both during carcinogenesis and disease progression as a consequence of aberrant mechanisms leading to genome instability. In this article, we will briefly review the molecular alterations that have been described in the transformation of normal cholangiocytes into malignant derivatives, focusing on the role of non-coding RNA (ncRNA) interactions, DNA methylation, post-translational modifications (PTMs) of histones and chromatin remodeling complexes...

Increasing epidemic of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and its comorbidities makes it urgent to understand the pathogenesis and regulatory mechanism. However, little is known about the regulatory role of lncRNAs in diabetes. Here, we constructed a T2DM-related competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network (DMCN) to explore biological function of lncRNAs during the development of diabetes mellitus. This network contained 351 nodes including 98 mRNAs, 86 microRNAs and 167 lncRNAs. Functional analysis showed that the mRNAs in DMCN were annotated into some diabetes-related pathways...

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in non coding RNAs (ncRNA) molecules affect gene and protein expression and generate genetic variability influencing the risk of tumor diseases. HOTAIR is locates at the heart of the cell memory gene program and represents a prototype of long non coding RNA (LncRNA) due to its capacity to regulate in-trans a distant chromosome landscape. Aberrant expression of HOTAIR is frequently associated with pathogenesis and mostly with metastatic progression of several human cancers...

Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are currently classed as non-coding RNA (ncRNA) that, unlike linear RNAs, form covalently closed continuous loops and act as gene regulators in mammals. They were originally thought to represent errors in splicing and considered to be of low abundance, however, there is now an increased appreciation of their important function in gene regulation. circRNAs are differentially generated by backsplicing of exons or from lariat introns. Unlike linear RNA, the 3' and 5' ends normally present in an RNA molecule have been joined together by covalent bonds leading to circularization...

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a relatively well-characterized class of noncoding RNA (ncRNA) molecules, involved in the regulation of various cell processes, including transcription, intracellular trafficking, and chromosome remodeling. Their deregulation has been associated with the development and progression of various cancer types, the fact which makes them suitable as biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. In recent years, detection of cancer-associated lncRNAs in body fluids of cancer patients has proven itself as an especially valuable method to effectively diagnose cancer...

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are emerging players in muscle regulation. Based on their length and differences in molecular structure, ncRNAs are subdivided into several categories including small interfering RNAs, stable non-coding RNAs, microRNAs (miRs), long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), and circular RNAs. miRs and lncRNAs are able to post-transcriptionally regulate many genes and bring into play several traits simultaneously due to a myriad of different targets. Recent studies have emphasized their importance in cardiac regeneration and repair...

The Base Excision Repair (BER) pathway, initially studied as a mere DNA repair pathway, has been later found to be implicated in the expression of cancer related genes in human. For several years, this intricate involvement in apparently different processes represented a mystery, which we now are starting to unveil. The BER handles simple alkylation and oxidative lesions arising from both endogenous and exogenous sources, including cancer therapy agents. Surprisingly, BER pathway involvement in transcriptional regulation, immunoglobulin variability and switch recombination, RNA metabolism and nucleolar function is astonishingly consolidating...

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are critical regulators of gene expression in essentially all life forms. Long ncRNAs (lncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) are two important RNA classes possessing regulatory functions. Up to date, many primate-specific ncRNAs have been identified and investigated. Their expression specificity to primate lineage suggests primate-specific roles. It is thus critical to elucidate the biological significance of primate or even human-specific ncRNAs, and to develop potential ncRNA-based therapeutics...

The objective of this study was to identify the expression profile of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) with concurrent assessment of microRNA (miRNA) and messenger RNA (mRNA) profiles in leiomyomas and paired myometrium using next-generation RNA sequencing and assembly of RNA transcripts. Total RNA was isolated from leiomyoma and paired myometrium (N = 8) and samples from 3 pairs were subjected to RNA sequencing. Normalized assembly of over 48 000 lncRNAs resulted in identification of 45 936 lncRNAs. Of these lncRNAs, 22 148 representing overlapping, intergenic, intronic, and antisense subtypes were expressed in all paired tissues, with 5941 (2813 up- and 3128 downregulated at ≥1...

PIN-like domains constitute a widespread superfamily of nucleases, diverse in terms of the reaction mechanism, substrate specificity, biological function and taxonomic distribution. Proteins with PIN-like domains are involved in central cellular processes, such as DNA replication and repair, mRNA degradation, transcription regulation and ncRNA maturation. In this work, we identify and classify the most complete set of PIN-like domains to provide the first comprehensive analysis of sequence-structure-function relationships within the whole PIN domain-like superfamily...

Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) play important roles in various cellular activities and diseases. In this paper, we presented a comprehensive review on computational methods for ncRNA prediction, which are generally grouped into four categories: (1) homology-based methods, that is, comparative methods involving evolutionarily conserved RNA sequences and structures, (2) de novo methods using RNA sequence and structure features, (3) transcriptional sequencing and assembling based methods, that is, methods designed for single and pair-ended reads generated from next-generation RNA sequencing, and (4) RNA family specific methods, for example, methods specific for microRNAs and long noncoding RNAs...

Well-differentiated thyroid cancer accounts for the majority of endocrine malignancies and, in general, has an excellent prognosis. In contrast, the less common poorly differentiated thyroid carcinoma (PDTC) and anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) are two of the most aggressive human malignancies. Recently, there has been an increased focus on the epigenetic alterations underlying thyroid carcinogenesis, including those that drive PDTC and ATC. Dysregulated epigenetic candidates identified include the Aurora group, KMT2D, PTEN, RASSF1A, multiple non-coding RNAs (ncRNA), and the SWI/SNF chromatin-remodeling complex...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: KCNQ1OT1 regulates the expression of tissue-specific imprinted genes within the Kcnq1 domain. Imprinted genes are positive regulators of apoptosis, one of the forms of cell death related to cataract formation, and thus may provide novel therapeutic targets for cataract treatment. Here, we studied the role of non-coding RNAs(ncRNA) in cataract formation. METHODS: Human lens epithelium cells (HLECs) were treated with H2O2, and the expression of KCNQ1OT1 and miR-214 was detected by qRT-PCR...

Current technologies have demonstrated that only a small fraction of our genes encode for protein products. The vast majority of the human transcriptome corresponds to noncoding RNA (ncRNA) of different size, localization, and expression profile. Despite the fact that a biological function remains yet to be determined for most ncRNAs, growing evidence points to their crucial regulatory roles at all stages in gene expression regulation, including transcriptional and posttranscriptional control, so that proper cell homeostasis seems to depend largely on a variety of ncRNA-mediated regulatory networks...

Epigenetics refers to heritable mechanisms able to modulate gene expression that do not involve alteration of the genomic DNA sequence. Classically, mechanisms such as DNA methylation and histone modifications were part of this classification. Today, this field of study has been expanded and includes also the large class of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). Indeed, with the extraordinary possibilities introduced by the next-generation sequencing approaches, our knowledge of the mammalian transcriptome has greatly improved...

BACKGROUND: RNA-protein interactions (RPIs) play an important role in many cellular processes. In particular, noncoding RNA-protein interactions (ncRPIs) are involved in various gene regulations and human complex diseases. High-throughput experiments have provided a large number of valuable information about ncRPIs, but these experiments are expensive and time-consuming. Therefore, some computational approaches have been developed to predict ncRPIs efficiently and effectively. METHODS: In this work, we will describe the recent advance of predicting ncRPIs from the following aspects: i) the dataset construction; ii) the sequence and structural feature representation, and iii) the machine learning algorithm...

Motivation: The importance of RNA protein-coding gene regulation is by now well appreciated. Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) are known to regulate gene expression at practically every stage, ranging from chromatin packaging to mRNA translation. However the functional characterization of specific instances remains a challenging task in genome scale settings. For this reason, automatic annotation approaches are of interest. Existing computational methods are either efficient but non accurate or they offer increased precision, but present scalability problems...
