MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a type of non-coding RNAs which are short (17-25nt) and highly conservative in evolution. They can regulate gene expression by preventing target mRNA translation or inducing degradation via oligonucleotides complementary to target mRNA. Here, we briefly summarize the functions and regulatory mechanisms of microRNA-181 (miR-181) in(More)
Akirin2 is an important nuclear factor which plays functions in innate immune response, myogenesis, muscle development, and carcinogenesis. In this study, akirin2 genes were cloned from 4-day-old Sanhuang and AA+ broiler, and its expression patterns were analyzed by RT-PCR. The results showed that there were four SNPs in the 5′-terminal region of akirin2(More)
Recently, avian viral diseases have become one of the main models to study mechanisms of viral infections and pathogenesis. The study of regulatory relationships and mechanisms between viruses and microRNAs has also become the focus. In this review, we briefly summarize the general situations of microRNAs encoded by avian herpesviruses. Also, we analyze the(More)
