Decline in linear body dimensions with age has been reported in studies through TRACT - out the world. There is sufficient evidence that a portion of the changes in stature in a crosssectional study may be due to secular trend rather than ageing. In the present study, age changes in linear measurements were studied and an attempt made to partition the age associated decline in stature from that of secular trend in height in younger generation. Data comprised of 126 Maratha women patients living in Government Mental Hospital in Pune, India. Their age ranged from 30 to 70 years. Using stature and sitting height, sub-ischial height was derived for each subject which was used as an indirect measurement to approximate the secular trend in height gain in younger generation. Iliac height- a direct measurement was used to quantify the increase in height in younger cohorts. Analysis showed that almost 71 percent (2.55cms) of statural difference between youngest and oldest age group could be attributed to ageing effect, and remaining 29 percent (1.05cms) to secular trend in those born later in time. The timing of reduction in height appears to be in the fifth decade accelerating in subsequent decades.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
