Regulating Gene Expression by Targeting Regulatory RNAs: A Novel Therapeutic Approach

Time: 3:15 pm
day: Day Two


  • RegRNAs are non-coding transcripts derived from gene regulatory elements that function as key regulators of transcription
  • Targeting regRNAs with antisense oligonucleotides leads to specific modulation of gene expression
  • Therapeutic modulation of gene expression using this approach has been achieved in vivo demonstrating the potential of regRNA targeting to treat a range of diseases
