Eukaryotic genomes encode thousands of long non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). They are emerging as key regulators of diverse cellular processes, including proliferation, apoptosis, differentiation and the cell cycle.
Several lncRNA resources as follows (sorted by alphabet):
, contains a comprehensive list of lncRNAs that have been shown to have, or to be associated with, biological functions in eukaryotes, as well as messenger RNAs that have regulatory roles. website: http://www.lncrnadb.org/
(ncRNA Expression Database), provides gene expression information for thousands of long ncRNAs in human and mouse. It also contains both microarray and in situ hybridization data, much of which is described here for the first time. website: http://jsm-research.imb.uq.edu.au/nred/
three new lncRNA databases:
(1) starBase v2.0
: is designed for decoding protein-lncRNA and miRNA-lncRNA interactions from large-scale CLIP-Seq datasets.
: experimentally verified and computationally predicted microRNA targets on lncRNAs.
: a comprehensive knowledgebase of human long noncoding RNAs.
This new database could be useful to many researchers interested in lncRNAs involved in respiratory infections caused by influenza and SARS-CoV viruses:
(1) MONOCLdb, the MOuse NOnCode Lung database, a database for mouse long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) involved in Influenza and SARS-CoV infections. website: http://www.monocldb.org
