General description

Gene regulation plays a critical role in complex cellular processes such as development, differentiation, and cellular response to environmental changes. In addition to transcriptional regulation of gene expression by transcription factors, cells utilize post-transcriptional regulatory mechanisms. One such mechanism involves use of certain RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) to temporally and coordinately regulate the rate of mRNA translation of functionally related gene
products. While the regulation of gene expression by transcription factors has been well studied over time, the post-transcriptional regulation of mRNAs by RBPs and the role of non-coding RNAs in this process is a relatively nascent field that remains to be thoroughly explored.
RNA-binding protein immunoprecipitation (RIP) is the RNA analog of the more well-known ChIP application (chromatin immunoprecipitation), which identifies DNA targets of DNA-binding proteins in an in-vivo cellular context. RIP can be used to identify specific RNA molecules (of many types) associated with specific nuclear or cytoplasmic binding proteins. These experiments involve immunoprecipitation of endogenously formed complexes of RNA-binding proteins and co-isolation of any RNA species associated with that RNA-binding protein. Purification of these RNA species allows interrogation and identification of mRNAs (and potentially non-coding RNAs associated with them) and can be directly measured using down stream applications including quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), microarray analysis (RIP-chip) and “deep-sequencing” or 2nd-generation sequencing based platforms (RIP-Seq).

Although numerous long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been identified in mammals, many of their biological roles remain to be characterized. Early reports suggest that H19 contributes to carcinogenesis, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Examination of the Oncomine resource showed that most
Cytoplasmic Metadherin (MTDH) provides survival advantage under conditions of stress by acting as RNA-binding protein.
