Study Description

Circular RNAs (circRNAs) represent a class of endogenous, non-coding RNAs that are formed when exons back splice to each other and that are both highly conserved and pervasively expressed in the mammalian brain. The goal of this study was thus to systematically identify and characterize circRNA expression and as well as to evaluate the predicted impact on regulatory networks in five functionally distinct cortical regions of healthy aged human brain - cerebellum (BC), inferior parietal lobe (IPL), middle temporal gyrus (MTG), occipital cortex (OC) and superior frontal gyrus (SGF).

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
RNA extracted from middle temporal gyrus (MG) brain region of healthy elderly controls. Three pairs of samples were generated, each pair consisting of one sample that was enriched for circular RNAs using RNase R, and a second sample that was not enriched (total N=6). Remaining samples in the study from other functionally distinct brain regions are currently under process and will be released soon.
