Long Non-coding RNA Sequencing Service

Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is functionally important to organisms, and numerous biological functions of lncRNA have been discovered in mammals and plants, including nucleosome repositioning, chromatin remodeling, transcriptional control, and transcriptional/post-transcriptional regulation. In addition, lncRNA is also involved in disease occurrence and development, genomic imprinting and developmental regulation. The application of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has greatly facilitated the discovery and functional analysis of lncRNA. As a leading provider of epigenetic research services, with a wealth of experience and a state-of-the-art technology platform, Creative BioMart provides our customers with a cost-effective lncRNA sequencing service.

What Is Long Non-coding RNA?

LncRNA is a transcript that does not encode a protein, typically greater than 200 nt and up to 10,000 nt in length. LncRNAs are widely distributed in organisms, and LncRNA transcripts accounts for the majority of the non-coding transcriptome. For example, in mouse transcripts, there are 180,000 transcripts in mice, but only approximately 20,000 transcripts are transcribed into proteins, and another ~160,000 transcripts belong to lncRNA. Based on the location and orientation of transcription associated with other genes, lncRNAs can be classified into different subtypes (including antisense, intergenic, overlapping, intronic, bidirectional, and processed).

LncRNA is similar to messenger RNA (mRNA) because it is usually transcribed from active chromatin, polyadenylated, and capped. However, lncRNA dose not guide protein biosynthesis. Early studies thought lncRNA should be mutated in mRNA and therefore not transcribed into protein, but more and more studies have shown that lncRNA is involved in many gene regulation processes related to disease progression, among which lncRNA is differentially expressed in various types of cancer, including leukemia, breast cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and so on. And other diseases in which lncRNA is dysregulated include cardiovascular diseases, neurological disease, and immune-mediated diseases. After a large number of studies on lncRNA, it is found that the gene regulation mechanism in organisms is far more complicated than we expected. With the deepening of studies, lncRNAs involved in the development process are also discovered, such as Braveheart (Bvht), which is an important lncRNA molecule to maintain heart development in mammals.
