RNA-Seq reveals distinct features of exosomal small RNA

Functional biomolecules, including small noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs), are released and transmitted between mammalian cells via extracellular vesicles (EVs), including endosome-derived exosomes. The small RNA composition in cells differs from exosomes, but underlying mechanisms have not been established. Researchers from the ...

Considerations for RNA-Seq Analysis of Circadian Rhythms

Circadian rhythms are daily endogenous oscillations of behavior, metabolism, and physiology. At a molecular level, these oscillations are generated by transcriptional-translational feedback loops composed of core clock genes. In turn, core clock genes drive the rhythmic accumulation of downstream outputs-termed ...

Complex in vivo RNA-Seq of a Bacterial Pathogen


Researchers at Umeå University recently found that Yersinia pseudotuberculosis can be used as a model of persistent bacterial infections. They performed in vivo RNA-seq of bacteria in small cecal tissue biopsies at early and persistent stages of infection to determine ...
