Luminal breast cancer specific circular RNAs uncovered by a novel tool for data analysis

PMCID: 5865691
PMID: 29581865
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.24522
call_split See protocol

[…] The Control gene set was defined by selecting genes lacking circRNA predictions considering the union between circBase [], circRNADb [] annotations and circRNAs predicted in this study. To select control genes expressed in MCF-7, a public Poly(A)+ MCF-7 RNA-Seq experiment performed in full medium (GSE48213, []) was re-ana […]


Genome wide analysis of circular RNAs in prenatal and postnatal pituitary glands of sheep

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5700919
PMID: 29170496
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-16344-y

[…] ny frames with a length >300 bp were considered as an ORF. Furthermore, to verify the potential coding ability of sheep circRNAs, a public database for human circRNAs with protein-coding annotations (circRNADb) was used to screen for protein-coding circRNAs. The circRNAs, which are highly similarity to human protein-coding circRNAs, were considered as sheep circRNAs with coding potential and are l […]


Heterogeneous circRNA expression profiles and regulatory functions among HEK293T single cells

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5663837
PMID: 29089539
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-14807-w

[…] in many kinds of species and implicated in important functions in physiological and disease process–. Hence, several comprehensive databases such as CircBase, Circ2Traits, circRNABase, deepBase, and circRNADb, have been developed to merge and unify information of published circRNAs and provide a series of online alignment tools to maintain structure and function prediction. To meet the demand of […]
