Aberrant mRNA splicing generates oncogenic RNA isoforms and contributes to the development and progression of cholangiocarcinoma.

Cholangiocarcinoma is a lethal biliary cancer, with an unclear molecular pathogenesis. Alternative splicing is a post-transcriptional modification that generates mature mRNAs, which are subsequently t...

HOXD-AS1 is a predictor of clinical progression and functions as an oncogenic lncRNAs in papillary thyroid cancer.

Long noncoding RNA HOXD cluster antisense RNA 1 (HOXD-AS1) has been found to play a crucial role in the tumorigenesis and progression of human cancer. However, the role of HOXD-AS1 in papillary thyroi...

A high-throughput screen identifies small molecule modulators of alternative splicing by targeting RNA G-quadruplexes.

RNA secondary structures have been increasingly recognized to play an important regulatory role in post-transcriptional gene regulation. We recently showed that RNA G-quadruplexes, which serve as cis-...

TranscriptAchilles: a genome-wide platform to predict isoform biomarkers of gene essentiality in cancer.

Aberrant alternative splicing plays a key role in cancer development. In recent years, alternative splicing has been used as a prognosis biomarker, a therapy response biomarker, and even as a therapeu...

Alternative splicing of neuronal genes: new mechanisms and new therapies.

Dynamic changes in alternative splicing during the life cycle of neurons support development and plasticity, and are implicated in disease pathology. Cell-specific alternative splicing programs coordi...

Impact of Papillary Microcarcinoma Terminology on Patients Treatment Preferences

To explore how a clinical sample of patients with thyroid nodules (men and women) with no history of thyroid cancer would make decisions about treatments based on different terminology use...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A thyroid neoplasm of mixed papillary and follicular arrangement. Its biological behavior and prognosis is the same as that of a papillary adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1271)

A process whereby multiple RNA transcripts are generated from a single gene. Alternative splicing involves the splicing together of other possible sets of EXONS during the processing of some, but not all, transcripts of the gene. Thus a particular exon may be connected to any one of several alternative exons to form a mature RNA. The alternative forms of mature MESSENGER RNA produce PROTEIN ISOFORMS in which one part of the isoforms is common while the other parts are different.

High affinity receptors for THYROID HORMONES, especially TRIIODOTHYRONINE. These receptors are usually found in the nucleus where they regulate DNA transcription. They are encoded by the THRB gene (also known as NR1A2, THRB1, or ERBA2 gene) as several isoforms produced by alternative splicing. Mutations in the THRB gene cause THYROID HORMONE RESISTANCE SYNDROME.

High affinity receptors for THYROID HORMONES, especially TRIIODOTHYRONINE. These receptors are usually found in the nucleus where they regulate DNA transcription.

An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.
