Melatonin is an output signal of an endogenous circadian clock of retinal photoreceptors, with highest levels occurring at night. Melatonin synthesized in the retina appears to act as a paracrine signal by binding to specific receptors in the eye. We have previously demonstrated that RNA encoding the Mel(1b) and Mel(1c) melatonin receptor subtypes is(More)
Stem cell marker, Musashi-1 (MSI1) is over-expressed in many cancer types; however the molecular mechanisms involved in MSI1 over-expression are not well understood. We investigated the microRNA (miRNA) regulation of MSI1 and the implications this regulation plays in colorectal cancer. MicroRNA miR-137 was identified as a MSI1-targeting microRNA by(More)
