Protein Production

Introduction: Less than 3% of the human genome encodesproteins, and more than half of the transcripts in human appear to be non-coding (nc) RNAs. This fact redefined the paradigm of genetic flow (The Central Dogma), and shed light on the hidden roles of ncRNAs in regulation of cellular processes. There are likely to be many more unknown ncRNAs that are fulfilling a wide range of unexpected functions in eukaryotic biology.
