Abstract

Evidence accumulated over the past decades shows that the number of identified antisense transcripts is continuously increasing, promoting them from transcriptional noise to real genes with specific functions. Indeed, recent studies have begun to unravel the complexity of the antisense RNA (asRNA) world, starting from the multidimensional mechanisms that they can exert in physiological and pathological conditions. In this review, we discuss the multiverse of the molecular functions of asRNAs, describing their action through transcription-dependent and RNA-dependent mechanisms. Then, we report the workflow and methodologies to study and functionally characterize single asRNA candidates.
