Abstract : Deciphering RNA-protein interactions are important to study principal biological mechanisms including transcription and translation regulation, gene silencing, among others. Predicting RNA molecule interaction with the target protein could allow us to understand important cellular processes and design novel treatment therapies for various diseases. As non-coding RNAs do not have coding potential our knowledge about their functions is still limited. Therefore, RNA-binding proteins of non-coding RNAs regulating functions, viz. including cellular maturation, nuclear export and stability may play a very important role. Keeping in view of the need for refined methods to understand protein-RNA interactions, we have attempted a docking model to infer binding sites between lncRNA NONHSAT02007 and protein KIF13A for a rare disease phenotype that we are studying in our lab.Communicated by Ramaswamy H.
