Event Type:  Lecture (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Women Scientists Advisory WSA Anita Roberts Lecture, Tuesday, May 16: Dr. Gisela Storz, Ph.D., NICHD
Description:  The hidden secrets of small genes. One major focus of our research has been the identification and characterization of small, regulatory RNAs in E. coli. Similar to eukaryotic miRNAs, many of these bacterial RNAs act by base pairing with mRNA targets to modulate mRNA stability and translation and are integral to most regulatory networks. Interestingly, while it was initially assumed these small RNAs are encoded as independent genes, recent studies have shown that many small RNAs are derived from the 3’ end of protein coding genes and the distinction between coding and noncoding is becoming increasingly blurred. A second major focus is the identification and characterization of small proteins of less than 50 amino acids, another overlooked class of biological molecules. Recent studies show that a major function of these small proteins, in both bacteria and eukaryotes, is regulating transporters and other large proteins in the membrane.
