Flashcards in Types of small RNAs Deck (3)
1

Micro RNAs

Derived from primary transcripts and generally down regulated cytoplasmic RNAs through translational repression or decay

2

siRNAs

Small interfering RNAs; derived from longer ds RNAS (mostly viral RNAs); target RNAs for degradation and are thought to act as a cellular defense mechanism

3

RasiRNAs

derived from repetitive regions of the genome and downregulate transcription from repetitive regions.
