microRNAs Inform Cancer Research

Alterations in the Expression of miRNA Genes Contribute to Pathogenesis on Broad Basis

Elizabeth Lipp

MicroRNA (miRNA) has a significant role in controlling developmental and cancer processes like cell proliferation, differentiation, cell cycle, apoptosis, and metastasis. This ubiquitousness and their recently revealed role as key regulators of gene expression during development has boosted their use as agents in the fight against cancer. It’s a hot topic “and it’s getting hotter,” said Frank Slack, associate professor of molecular, cellular, and developmental biology at Yale University … (read more)
