Article Abstract

Long non-coding RNA and messenger RNA—the meeting of two worlds

Authors: Constance Vennin, Eric Adriaenssens


Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), defined as transcripts without protein-coding potential, have recently emerged as key mediators in numerous biological functions. LncRNAs act as regulators of gene expression at different levels including transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation as well as chromatin organization.
