BACKGROUND MicroRNAs are ~22-nt long regulatory RNAs that serve as critical modulators of post-transcriptional gene regulation. The diversity of miRNAs in endothelial cells (ECs) and the relationship of this diversity to epithelial and hematologic cells is unknown. We investigated the baseline miRNA signature of human ECs cultured from the aorta (HAEC),(More)
miR-143 and miR-145 are co-expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) that have been extensively studied as potential tumor suppressors. These miRNAs are highly expressed in the colon and are consistently reported as being downregulated in colorectal and other cancers. Through regulation of multiple targets, they elicit potent effects on cancer cell growth and(More)
Grain boundaries in polycrystals form a complex interconnected network of inter-crystalline interfaces. The crystallographic character of individual grain boundaries and the network structure of the grain boundary ensemble have been experimentally observed to have a strong influence on many materials properties. This observation suggests that if we could(More)
