When the NXF1 gene functions properly, RNA of a single-exon gene is exported

Cells use two separate routes to export RNA out of the nucleus

Humans and fish share about 70% of their protein-coding genes, but only about 0.5% of their regulatory long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs)

How some genes lost the ability to make proteins - and gained regulatory powers 

Dr. Igor Ulitsky


We share many of our genes with sea urchins, but none of the sequences for long non-coding RNAs that regulate those genes

Non-coding DNA sequences on an evolutionary “fast track” may hold clues to human disease
