Erel Levine, Harvard Dept. of Physics, Many are called but few are chosen: the targets of small RNAs
Department of Physics and FAS Center for Systems Biology Harvard University
Small regulatory RNAs play major roles in regulating cellular and organismic functions under normal conditions as well as in stress and disease. Target specificity is achieved via base-pairing of very short sequences, allowing hundreds of potential targets per small RNA. At the same time, molecular and cellular properties of a target have strong effect on the regulation efficacy in vivo. In this talk I'll describe some of these effects, and address the question how the regulation of many targets is coordinated in the cell.
