The vast majority of the mammalian genome is transcribed, generating a wealth of transcripts that do not have protein-coding potential. These non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) have emerged as major mediators of compartmentalized gene expression with many important regulatory functions, and are therefore at the focus of biological research in many cellular systems. The expression of ncRNAs is particularly multifaceted in neurons, as they seem to be expressed in a highly cell-type and activity-dependent… CONTINUE READING
