A novel RNA-mediated disease mechanism has emerged from studies on dominantly inherited neurological disorders caused by unstable microsatellite expansions in non-coding regions of the genome. These non-coding tandem repeat expansions trigger the production of unusual RNAs that gain a toxic function, which involves the formation of RNA repeat structures(More)
Myotonic dystrophy (DM) is a multi-systemic disease that impacts cardiac and skeletal muscle as well as the central nervous system (CNS). DM is unusual because it is an RNA-mediated disorder due to the expression of toxic microsatellite expansion RNAs that alter the activities of RNA processing factors, including the muscleblind-like (MBNL) proteins. While(More)
The differentiation of fibroblasts into myofibroblasts mediates tissue wound healing and fibrotic remodelling, although the molecular programme underlying this process remains poorly understood. Here we perform a genome-wide screen for genes that control myofibroblast transformation, and identify the RNA-binding protein muscleblind-like1 (MBNL1). MBNL1(More)
There have been many advancements in the field of aerospace and avionics. Scientists have increasingly started to focus on VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) aircrafts. We have built a miniature VTOL twinrotor UAV. UAVs have begun to grab a lot of attention these days due to its numerous applications such as surveillance and relief. Twinrotor is a kind of(More)
