Circuitous route to transcription regulation

Mol Cell. 2013 Sep 26;51(6):705-6. doi: 10.1016/j.molcel.2013.09.012.


In this issue of Molecular Cell, Zhang and colleagues (2013) identify a new class of intron-derived circular RNAs (ciRNAs) and show that they have the potential to enhance transcription of their host gene.
