Roles of non-coding RNAs in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


Analysis of host gene expression profiles following viral infections of target cells/tissues can reveal crucial insights into the host: virus interaction and enables the development of novel therapeutics and prophylactics. Regions of the host genome that do not code for protein, encode structural, and functional non-coding RNAs that are important not only in regulation of host gene expression but also may impact viral replication. This review summarizes the role of host non-coding RNAs during replication of multiple respiratory viruses with a focus on Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), an important pediatric pathogen. This review highlights the current state of knowledge and understanding regarding the function(s) of ncRNAs for respiratory viral infection and host immunity in general.
