Talk title  The Generation and Function of risiRNA in Caenorhabditis elegans
Speaker Prof. Shouhong GUANG
University of Science and Technology of China
Date & Time 08 Nov 2019 (Fir)
Venue Room G002, N22 Building (University of Macau)
Abstract Ribosome biogenesis drives cell growth and proliferation, but mechanisms that modulate this process remain poorly understood. For a long time, small rRNA sequences have been widely treated as
non-specific degradation products and neglected as garbage sequences. Recently, Prof. GUANG’s team identified a new class of antisense ribosomal siRNAs (risiRNAs) that downregulate pre-rRNA through the nuclear RNAi pathway in C. elegans.In this talk, Prof. GUANG will show the generation, function, and mechanism of this new class of small interfering RNAs.
