The hormone estrogen (E2) binds the estrogen receptor to promote transcription of E2-responsive genes in the breast and other tissues. E2 also has links to genomic instability, and elevated E2 levels are tied to breast cancer. Here, we show that E2 stimulation causes a rapid, global increase in the formation of R-loops, co-transcriptional RNA-DNA products,(More)
Noncoding RNAs have essential biochemical functions in different areas of cellular metabolism, including protein synthesis, RNA splicing, protein secretion, and DNA replication. We have successfully used Morpholino antisense oligonucleotides for the functional inactivation of small noncoding RNAs required for DNA replication (Y RNAs in vertebrates and(More)
