Circular RNAs: Biogenesis, Function, and a Role as Possible Cancer Biomarkers

Int J Genomics
PMCID: 5733622
PMID: 29349062
DOI: 10.1155/2017/6218353

[…] ility to predict RBP and miRNA interactions when circRNAs form secondary or tertiary structures. Thus, experimental validation is often needed to reliably verify RBP and miRNA functional sites [].The CircNet database provides information on novel circRNAs, integrated miRNA target networks, expression profile of circRNA isoforms, genomic annotation of circRNA isoforms, and sequence features of circ […]


Circular RNAs: clinical relevance in cancer

PMCID: 5787450
PMID: 29416705
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.22846

[…] In recent years, several algorithms have been developed to annotate and identify circRNAs from RNA-seq data obtained from cancer samples (Table ). The CircNet database provides comprehensive information on circRNAs, including genome sequences and loci, and more importantly, this database also provides information for integrated ciRNA-miRNA-mRNA netw […]


Circular RNAs function as competing endogenous RNAs in multiple types of cancer

PMCID: 5768103
PMID: 29387208
DOI: 10.3892/ol.2017.7348

[…] ied to predict circRNAs, and multiple circRNA-associated databases have been developed for public use, including circRNAFinder (), Circ2Traits (), find_circ (), CIRCexplorer (), CIRI (), starBase (), CircNet () and circBase (). Identifying more cancer-associated circRNAs and evaluating their underlying mechanisms may assist healthcare professionals in clinically applying circRNAs in cancer diagnos […]


The role of circRNAs in cancers

Biosci Rep
PMCID: 5653918
PMID: 28928231
DOI: 10.1042/BSR20170750

[…] ledge of the abstruse complexity of gene regulation and have pushed circRNAs to the burning forefront of biological researches. Moreover, many databases, which will be more perfect, such as circBase, circNet, Circ2Traits, and CircInteractome, provided excellent platforms to further facilitate functional researches on circRNAs [–]. However, current studies on the relationship between circRNAs and d […]


Circular RNAs: Isolation, characterization and their potential role in diseases

RNA Biol
PMCID: 5731806
PMID: 28820337
DOI: 10.1080/15476286.2017.1367886

[…] atabase called “circBase,” which contains data sets of circRNA that were merged and unified. This database provides a platform for circRNA research and can be used to identify known and new circRNAs. CircNet ( is another useful database that provides information about new circRNAs, integrated miRNA-target networks, circRNA isoform expression profiles, genomic annota […]


Identifying and Characterizing the Circular RNAs during the Lifespan of Arabidopsis Leaves

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5517402
PMID: 28785273
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01278

[…] 4 days after emergence to 30 days at 2-day intervals during the lifespan of leaves. We used MapSplice 2.0 () to identify circRNAs. The circRNA sequences were extracted according to the method used in CircNet database (). […]
