How satellite RNAs could cause cancer by promoting mutations

Researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have figured out how RNA transcribed from satellite DNA repeats could promote tumorigenesis by hindering DNA repair, highlighting a potential new target for cancer.

Satellite RNAs are a type of non-coding RNA transcribed from satellite DNA, tandem DNA repeats found in the
