Potential impact of DNA circles in cancer

November 23, 2019

Seems that free-floating DNA large enough to contain genes can be expressing actively. Would impact RNA-seq assays of tumours.

A #circadian gene-expr atlas in mammals by @jbhclock lab
http://www.PNAS.org/content/111/45/16219.abstract 43% of genes have a daily rhythm in at least 1 tissue [1/2]

.@jbhclock Fewest circadian genes in brain; most in liver. Perhaps this more reflects daily feeding cycle than true light-dark cycle? [2/2]

* Interestingly brain regions have the fewest circ genes(only ~3%), liver has most

* Diseases assoc with circadian genes correlate with NIH funding

* Genes can have up to a 6-hour phase diff. Between diff. organs (eg Vegfa betw. Heart & fat)

* 56 of the top 100 drugs incl. Top 7, targeted the product of a circadian gene. Related to the half-life of drugs.

* Could the liver genes be more reflective of feeding rhythm rather than true circadian clock.
