InFusion – Discovery of Fusion Genes and Chimeric Transcripts from Deep RNA-Sequencing Data
Analysis of fusion transcripts has become increasingly important due to their link with cancer development. Since high-throughput sequencing approaches survey fusion events exhaustively, several computational methods for the detection of gene fusions from RNA-seq data have been developed. This kind of analysis, however, is complicated by native trans-splicing events, the splicing-induced complexity of the transcriptome ...

Biogenesis and Transcriptional Regulation of Long Noncoding RNAs in the Human Immune System
The central dogma of molecular biology states that DNA makes RNA makes protein. Discoveries over the last quarter of a century found that the process of DNA transcription into RNA gives rise to a diverse array of functional RNA species, including genes that code for protein and noncoding RNAs. For decades, the focus has been ...

DNA sequences within glioma-derived exosomes can cross the intact blood-brain barrier
Tumor-cell-secreted extracellular vesicles (EVs) can cross the disrupted blood-brain barrier (BBB) into the bloodstream. However, in certain gliomas, the BBB remains intact, which might limit EVs release. To evaluate the ability of tumor-derived EVs to cross the BBB, researchers at the HM Hospitals Research Foundation, Spain used an orthotopic xenotransplant mouse model of human glioma-cancer ...
