Based on one of the leading encyclopedic resources in cell and molecular biology worldwide, this two-volume work contains more than 75% new content, not previously published in the Encyclopedia. All the other chapters have been carefully updated.
The result is a comprehensive overview of the different functions of the various forms of RNA in living organisms, with each contributor carefully selected and an internationally recognized expert on his or her field. Special focus is on the different forms of expression regulation through RNA, with medical applications in the treatment of diseases -- from cancers and immune responses to infections and aging -- covered in detail. At least 45 of the 55 articles are new content previously not published in the Encyclopedia.

Since it was first considered that RNA could function as bothmessenger and part of the translation machinery, RNAs have beenfound to be versatile molecules that not only play key roles inmany important biological processes – like splicing, editing,protein export among others – but can also act catalyticallyand have many complex regulatory roles in cellular processes. Thereis still much work to be done before we fully understandRNA’s diverse nature, let alone all of its roles in bothhealthy and diseased states.
With each contributor carefully selected and a recognized expertin his or her field, these two volumes bring together the differentfunctions of the various forms of RNA in a comprehensive overview,with special focus on the different forms of gene expressionregulation, which have potential applications in health anddisease.
