However, it is the posttranscriptional regulation of the COX-2 gene, which is far more complex, which controls the expression of the protein.
To protect host genome from the deleterious effect in somatic tissues, retrotransposons are recognized by factors like KRAB-ZFPs and KAP1 (TRIM28) and completely silenced through DNA methylation, histone methylation/acetylation, and posttranscriptional regulation [8], except in the brains where they provide genetic variations among neurons [9].
Accumulating evidence attributes a critical role to posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression, mediated by RNA-binding proteins (RBPs), in human disease and particularly malignant transformation [1].
Subsequently, it was found that statins stimulate the expression of endothelial NO synthase mainly due to the effect on posttranscriptional mechanisms.
Aside from the aforementioned diverse mechanisms, lncRNAs also participate in the control of the posttranscriptional events of mRNAs, including the maintenance of RNA stabilization, RNA splicing, translation or degradation, and miRNA generation or regulation (Figure 1(c)) [13-15].
MiRNAs function primarily by binding to 3' untranslated regions (37 UTR) of target miRNAs and usually decrease the expression of target genes at the posttranscriptional level [62-64].
