RNA and Human Genome - About 98% of the human genome transcripted into RNA that does not code protein [1],which popularly called non-coding RNAs(ncRNAs). These transcripts fall into several classes based on their length, biogenesis, polarity (sense or antisense), and putative functions. A classification set it as long and small ncRNAs depending upon length of the transcript. Small ncRNAs include Piwi-interacting RNAs(piRNAs), small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), microRNAs(miRNAs), and some bacterial regulatory RNAs[2]. By contrast, the long noncoding RNAs(lncRNAs) characterized a class of transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides[3].A large number of ncRNAs like miRNAs and piRNAs has been well studied in human an...   [tags: RNA, non coding RNA]

The excitatory AP wave front subsequently spreads through adjacent areas of the perinodal region to reach the crista terminalis and atrium. Repolarization of the pacemaker cells allows the cycle to repeat.
