A deep learning framework for modeling structural features of RNA-binding protein targets.
Beijing, China. In Nucleic Acids Res, 13 Nov 2015
In addition, we have conducted the first study to show that integrating the additional RNA tertiary structural features can improve the model performance in predicting RBP binding sites, especially for the polypyrimidine tract-binding protein (PTB), which also provides a new evidence to support the view that RBPs may own specific tertiary structural binding preferences.
Preterm birth and its long-term effects: methylation to mechanisms.
Atlanta, United States. In Biology (basel), 2013
This brief review explores the potential role of DNA methylation in preterm birth (PTB) and its possible long-term consequences and provides an overview of the physiological processes central to PTB and recent DNA methylation studies of PTB.
Evolutionary dynamics of gene and isoform regulation in Mammalian tissues.
Cambridge, United States. In Science, 2013
Thousands of previously unknown, lineage-specific, and conserved alternative exons were identified; widely conserved alternative exons had signatures of binding by MBNL, PTB, RBFOX, STAR, and TIA family splicing factors, implicating them as ancestral mammalian splicing regulators.
