The small RNA molecules of about 19-22 nucleotides in length, aptly called microRNAs, perform the task of gene regulation in the cell. Interestingly, till the early nineties very little was known about them but eventually, the microRNAs have become forefront in the area of research. The huge number of microRNAs plus each one of them targeting a vast number(More)
Previously, we had reported that overexpression of miR-23a~27a~24-2 cluster induces caspase-dependent and -independent apoptosis via JNK in human embryonic kidney (HEK293T) cells. Herein, we describe the molecular mechanism(s) responsible for miR-23a~27a~24-2 cluster induced apoptosis. Gene expression profiling was used to characterize the transcriptional(More)
MiRNAs and transcription factors have emerged as important regulators for gene expression and are known to regulate various biological processes, including cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Previously, using genome-wide expression profiling studies, we have shown an inverse relationship of STAT6 and cholesterol biosynthesis and also(More)
STAT6 transcription factor has become a potential molecule for therapeutic intervention because it regulates broad range of cellular processes in a large variety of cell types. Although some target genes and interacting partners of STAT6 have been identified, its exact mechanism of action needs to be elucidated. In this study, we sought to further(More)
