Novel Pathological Role of hnRNPA1 (Heterogeneous Nuclear Ribonucleoprotein A1) in Vascular Smooth Muscle Cell Function and Neointima Hyperplasia

PMCID: 5660626
PMID: 28912364
DOI: 10.1161/ATVBAHA.117.310020

[…] the target mRNA turnover and translation. Interestingly, by using the prediction software RegRNA, A Regulatory RNA Motifs and Elements Finder (, or AREsite2 (, we have identified several AREs within the 3′-UTR of IQGAP1. Importantly, one of such AREs (ATTTA) is adjacent with the reported hnRNPA1 bin […]


Posttranscriptional Regulation Controls Calretinin Expression in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Front Genet
PMCID: 5447031
PMID: 28611824
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2017.00070

[…] experiments (CALB2-3′UTR). Multiple sequence alignment of CALB2-3′UTR across 100 vertebrates listed in the UCSC Genome Browser, indicated two conserved stretches within the CALB2-3′UTR (Figure ). The AREsite2 software () revealed a putative ARE motif (AUUUA) within the first stretch, and TargetScan7.1 software predicted two binding sites for the miR-30 family and one for miR-9, within the second c […]


Identification of novel post transcriptional features in olfactory receptor family mRNAs

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4627058
PMID: 25908788
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkv324

[…] go application ( (). The 3′UTR sequences generated during the annotation were used to scan for AREs. We scanned the 3′UTR sequences for the following n-mers identified by AREsite ( (): AUUUA and WWAUUUAWW. W indicates either an adenine or uracil nucleotide. miRNA sites were discovered using TargetScan 6.0 (–). In brief, 9 […]


Scan for Motifs: a webserver for the analysis of post transcriptional regulatory elements in the 3′ untranslated regions (3′ UTRs) of mRNAs

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4067372
PMID: 24909639
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-15-174

[…] in some computational analyses for proteins [] and miRNAs [].In many studies one specific gene of interest from a single species is being analysed. Recently developed systems: RegRNA 2.0 [], AURA [], ARESite [], and UTRdb [] have provided increasing support for this type of analysis. However, the analysis of sequence alignments, a representation of overlapping identified elements, E-value cutoff, […]
