  • Several non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) that regulate eukaryotic mRNA transcription have recently been discovered. Their mechanisms of action and biological roles are extremely diverse, which indicates that, so far, we have only had a glimpse of this new class of regulatory factor. Many surprises are likely to be revealed as further ncRNA transcriptional regulators are identified and characterized.
