Wiggly microRNA binding implies a more complex genome regulation

8 agosto 2014

Non-standard microRNA silencing interactions appear more prevalent in human biology than previously believed, suggesting more complex roles for microRNAs, and helping explain why it’s been difficult to translate microRNAs into human therapy. «The findings may help explain why the microRNA field has run into difficulty when translating these powerful molecules into therapies for diseases ranging from cancer to diabetes,» explains the study’s senior author.
