Mammalian synthetic gene circuits have promise in biological and medical research due to their capability of controlling cellular functions. Especially, post-transcriptional circuits are growing in interest because of features that include compatibility and superior safety. RNA-based molecular nanodevices are often a core component in these circuits. RNA nanodevices that act as translational controllers should be suitable for designing genetic circuits that execute complex functions. In this review, we introduce recent progress in designing synthetic RNA-based circuitry and building mammalian post-transcriptional networks.

Owing to the superiority in safety, RNA-only delivery synthetic circuit is more suitable for cell-based medicine. Modules which possess matching inputs and outputs could be stringed by daisy-chaining ...
During endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress conditions, an adaptive signaling network termed the unfolded protein response (UPR) is activated. The UPR's function is to increase ER protein-folding capacit...
RNA-based devices controlling gene expression bear great promise for synthetic biology, as they offer many advantages like short response times and light metabolic burden compared to protein-circuits....
The field of mammalian synthetic biology is expanding quickly, and technologies for engineering large synthetic gene circuits are increasingly accessible. However, for mammalian cell engineering, trad...
The central dogma of molecular biology illustrates the importance of messenger RNAs as critical mediators between genetic information encoded at the DNA level and proteomes/metabolomes at the cellular...
The optimal EAA-containing protein format necessary to maximally stimulate muscle protein synthesis and optimize whole-body net protein balance during caloric deprivation has not been dete...
The aim of the study is to explore the possibility to identify, at an early stage after a renal graft and from blood samples collected within first months after graft, a predictive transcr...
The target of rapamycin complex 2 (TORC2) is an evolutionarily conserved serine/threonine protein kinase that controls growth and metabolism. In mammals (including humans), mammalian TOR c...
Autologous FANG vaccine expresses rhGMCSF and bi-shRNAfurin from the FANG plasmid. The GMCSF protein is a potent stimulator of the immune system, recruiting immune effectors to the site o...
The sperm of the KO mouse shothe investigatorsd severe defects of all found compartments: acrosome, nucleus, midpiece and tail. The investigators also found SEPT12 co-localizes and interac...
Post-transcriptional biological modification of messenger, transfer, or ribosomal RNAs or their precursors. It includes cleavage, methylation, thiolation, isopentenylation, pseudouridine formation, conformational changes, and association with ribosomal protein.
RNA transcripts of the DNA that are in some unfinished stage of post-transcriptional processing (RNA PROCESSING, POST-TRANSCRIPTIONAL) required for function. RNA precursors may undergo several steps of RNA SPLICING during which the phosphodiester bonds at exon-intron boundaries are cleaved and the introns are excised. Consequently a new bond is formed between the ends of the exons. Resulting mature RNAs can then be used; for example, mature mRNA (RNA, MESSENGER) is used as a template for protein production.
A forkhead box transcription factor and transcriptional activator which triggers type 1 programmed cell death (APOPTOSIS) in the absence of APOPTOSIS INHIBITING PROTEINS, including neuronal cell death induced by OXIDATIVE STRESS. It recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5'-(AG)TAAA(TC)A-3' and also functions in post-transcriptional regulation of the c-MYC PROTO-ONCOGENE.
A class of untranslated RNA molecules that are typically greater than 200 nucleotides in length and do not code for proteins. Members of this class have been found to play roles in transcriptional regulation, post-transcriptional processing, CHROMATIN REMODELING, and in the epigenetic control of chromatin.
A family of RRM PROTEINS that are homologues of ELAV protein, Drosophila. They were initially identified in humans as the targets of autoantibodies in patients with PARANEOPLASTIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS. They regulate GENE EXPRESSION at the post-transcriptional level.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
