The RNA world : the nature of modern RNA suggests a prebiotic RNA world by Raymond F Gesteland( Book )

28 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent studies on the activities of RNA in the cell have revolutionized our understanding of the many roles played by this molecule. The first two editions of The RNA World (1993, 1999) shed light on the pre-biotic era dominated by this versatile molecule, and provided an overview of the state of RNA research at the time. The new third edition of The RNA World updates this perspective, describing the vast array of newly discovered roles for RNA in the modern world. The updated original chapters are supplemented with new chapters on RNA-protein complexes, snRNPs and snoRNPs, telomerase RNA, RNAi, microRNAs, noncoding RNA, and many other subjects

RNA worlds : from life's origins to diversity in gene regulation( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once thought to be just a messenger that allows genetic information encoded in DNA to direct the formation of proteins, RNA (ribonucleic acid) is now known to be a highly versatile molecule that has multiple roles in cells. It can function as an enzyme, scaffold various subcellular structures, and regulate gene expression through a variety of mechanisms, as well as act as a key component of the protein synthesis and splicing machinery. Moreover, increasing evidence indicates that RNA preceded DNA as the hereditary material and played a crucial role int eh early evolution of life on Earth. This volume reviews our understandings of two RNA worlds: the primordial RNA world before DNA, in which RNA was both information store and biocatalyst; and the contemporary RNA world, in which mRNA, tRNA, rRNA, siRNA, miRNA, and a host of other RNAs operate. The early chapters of the book analyze the role of RNA in the first life forms and the appearance of cells. Subsequent chapters examine riboswitches and ribozymes, establishing what the RNA molecule is capable of alone. The book goes on to discuss the evolution of ribosomes and the functions of RNPs, before reviewing the recent work that has revolutionized our understanding of gene regulation by non-coding RNDAs, including miRNAs and siRNAs. Also covered are viral RNAs, telomerase RNA, and tools for scientists who work on RNA. The book is thus essential reading for all molecular biologists and biochemists, as well as chemists interested in RNA technology, information storage, or enzyme catalysis
Ribozymes and RNA catalysis by David M. J Lilley( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emphasis of this book concerns the origins of catalysis in RNA and is well suited for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in catalytic chemistry
Ribozymes and RNA Catalysis( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emphasis of this book concerns the origins of catalysis in RNA and is well suited for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in catalytic chemistry, The discovery that RNA could act as a macromolecular catalyst in the cell, signified a paradigm shift in molecular biology. Ribozymes and RNA Catalysis takes the reader through the origins of catalysis in RNA and necessarily includes significant discussion of structure and folding. The main focus of the book concerns chemical mechanism with extensive comment on how, despite the importance of RNA catalysis in the cell, its origins are still poorly understood and often controversial. The reader is given an outline of the important role of RNA catalysis in many aspects of cell function, including RNA processing and translation. There has been a significant coming together in the field of RNA in recent years and this book offers a compelling review of the whole field to date. Written by leading experts in their field, who in turn review the structural and mechanistic data for all known ribozymes this book is well suited for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in catalytic chemistry as well as those in related fields who require a unique overview of the subject

Human telomerase: Abundance, activity and activation by Linghe Xi( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Telomerase is the ribonucleo protein enzyme that elongates telomeric DNA to compensate for the attrition occurring during DNA replication. It has two key components, telomerase RNA (TR) and telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT). Its activity is required by stem cells and most cancer cells to facilitate indefinite proliferation. Knowing the levels of telomerase in cells and the mechanisms controlling these levels is important for understanding telomerase biology and cellular immortality. This thesis presents methods to quantify cellular levels of human telomerase, investigations of how specific cancer-associated TERT promoter mutations affect telomerase levels and genome-editing strategies to modify the endogenous TERT gene
