Regulatory potential of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in boar spermatozoa

What is it about?

Differential expression of long non-coding RNAs (DElncRNAs) could affect the sperm’s response to the cryopreservation conditions. This paper explains how potential target genes, regulated by DElncRNAs in cis or trans, are associated with numerous biological processes, such as response to stress, cell death (apoptosis) and motility.

Why is it important?

The findings of this paper reaffirm that the co-expression of protein-coding genes with long non-coding RNAs could have varying effects on sperm freezability.
