Scientists in Japan have developed a nanobiodevice that can separate microRNAs from DNA in the fraction of a second.
Scientists in Japan have identified two new microRNAs that may help develop regenerative therapies for diabetes patients.
Researchers have found an microRNA-like fragment that is detectable in infected patients but not during recovery—suggesting that it could serve as a biomarker for the disease.
Fungal parasites are able to change the expression patterns of 17 honey bee miRNAs, potentially disrupting over 400 target genes.
A cross-country clinical study has identified a panel of five miRNA biomarkers which could be useful for the early diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer.
A DNA-based gene silencing method has been shown to exist in the multicellular organism Oikopleura dioica.
MicroRNA processing is regulated by a complex containing a single DROSHA protein that acts as a molecular ruler measuring the length of the primary transcript.
Researchers claim that small exogenous RNAs from plants eaten by a mother can cross the placenta and affect fetal development.
Although short, miRNA sequences have been used to sort out phylogenetic relationships.
