An RNA thought to be noncoding in fact encodes a small protein that regulates calcium uptake in muscle.
The Epigenetic Lnc
Kevin V. Morris | Oct 1, 2012
Long non-protein-coding RNA (lncRNA) sequences are often transcribed from the opposite, or antisense, strand of a protein coding gene. In the past few years, research has shown that these lncRNAs play a number of regulatory roles in the cell. For exa

Epigenetic changes accrued over an organism’s lifetime may leave a permanent heritable mark on the genome, through the help of long noncoding RNAs.
The Sugar Lnc
Sabrina Richards | May 1, 2012
Genes that react to cellular sugar content are regulated by a long non-coding RNA via an unexpected mechanism
Non-coding RNAs Halt Cell Death
