Disease relevance of RMST


High impact information on RMST

  • Since NCRMS RNA possesses limited potential for protein coding, yet with conserved sequences between different species, it is likely that NCRMS is a functional non-coding RNA [2].
  • Multiple alternatively spliced forms of NCRMS were identified through library screening, RACE, and comparison to human expressed sequence tags (ESTs) [2].
  • We have used Representational Difference Analysis (RDA) to compare gene expression between the two RMS subtypes and have identified the novel gene NCRMS (non-coding RNA in RMS) that has increased expression in the alveolar subtype relative to the embryonal subtype [2].
