BC-1 RNA is a small RNA transcript of the identifier repetitive sequences present in rodent genomes. The RNA has been reported to be specific to the brain and confined to the cytoplasm. The RNA level increases during the 1st month after birth. To understand its cytoplasmic function, it seems important to examine whether BC-1 RNA is present as an RNP. It is believed that the protein component may govern the functions of BC-1 RNA in the brain cells. In the present report, we have demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
