Present Scenario of Long Non-Coding RNAs in Plants
AbstractSmall non-coding RNAs have been extensively studied in plants over the last decade. In contrast, genome-wide identification of plant long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) has recently gained momentum. LncRNAs are now being recognized as important players in gene regulation, and their potent regulatory roles are being studied comprehensively in eukaryotes. LncRNAs were first reported in humans in 1992. Since then, research in animals, particularly in humans, has rapidly progressed, and a vast amount of data has been generated, collected, and organized using computational approaches. Additionally, numerous studies have been conducted to understand the roles of these long RNA species in several diseases. However, the status of lncRNA investigation in plants lags behind that in animals (especially humans). Efforts are being made in this direction using computational tools and high-throughput sequencing technologies, such as the lncRNA microarray technique, RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq), RNA capture sequencing, (RNA CaptureSeq), etc. Given the current scenario, significant amounts of data have been produced regarding plant lncRNAs, and this amount is likely to increase in the subsequent years. In this review we have documented brief information about lncRNAs and their status of research in plants, along with the plant-specific resources/databases for information retrieval on lncRNAs.
