De.Coding Obesity – Control of Metabolism by the Noncoding Transcriptome

Kornfeld Jan-Wilhelm

The pervasiveness of noncoding transcription has revolutionized our understanding of gene regulation. Although not yet fully catalogued in terms of numbers, mammalian genomes express a broad spectrum of, small and long, noncoding RNAs. Whereas small noncoding RNAs like microRNAs and their role in energy metabolism and glucose handling are rather well understood, we have little understanding concerning the metaboregulatory properties of those 10,000s of long noncoding RNAs (lnc...
