环状 RNA 的结构和功能及在结核病研究中的应用初探

查看全文

环状 RNA 是以共价闭合环为特征的非编码 RNA,可通过转录调控机制影响细胞转导、蛋白质合成等生物学功能,与多种疾病的发病机制有关,是一类崭新的生物标志物。该文就环状 RNA 的来源、结构、功能、研究方法进行介绍,并初步探究了环状 RNA 在结核病研究中的应用。

Circular RNA are one kind of non-coding RNA, charactered by covalently closed rings. They can influence biological functions such as cell transduction and protein synthesis. They are associated with pathogenesis of many diseases and become a novel family of biomarkers. Now we try to introduce the origin, structure, function of circular RNA and the involved research methodology. Furthermore, we primarily discuss their application in the tuberculosis research.
