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]
