RNA: Jack of all trades and master of all

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Noncoding RNAs have regulatory capabilities that evolution harnesses to fulfill diverse functions. Lee et al. show that a noncoding RNA from Epstein-Barr virus recruits a host transcription factor to silence virus gene expression and propose that it does this through base-pairing with nascent viral transcripts.
