Non-coding RNAs in veterinary diagnostics and therapeutics

With enhanced methods to explore the transcriptome, in the last decade, there have been significant developments in describing and understanding non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) and their functions in various physiological contexts. Non-coding RNAs could be classified into many kinds such as small RNAs and long non-coding RNAs. Regulatory pathways associated with small RNAs, such as microRNAs, are now being elucidated in detail, including miRNome involvement in host-pathogen interactions, host-microbiota crosstalk, and cell-to-cell communication. The functions of long non-coding RNAs appear intriguingly intricate, involving many mechanisms of action and impinging on several cell biological processes. Additionally, circular RNAs are appealing regulators for various physiological processes and diseases via their interactions with proteins and microRNAs.

Regulation of long-non-coding and small RNAs plays a pivotal role in disease aetiologies and might be targeted using RNA therapies. Understanding these molecules and their function is needed for biomarkers discovery and the rational and programmable design of synthetic RNA therapies in treating species of veterinary interest.

This collection of articles features original research and reviewer articles on the structure, functions, regulation, and alterations of long and small RNAs in physiological and disease states and their potential therapeutic applications in veterinary species. Identifying the mechanistic roles of ncRNAs in processes as diverse as cellular signaling, organismal development, cell death, microbiota crosstalk, disease onset, and pathogen survival, replication and persistence might lead to their use as diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers or even as targeted therapeutic agents.
