A Dead End for MicroRNAs

  title={A Dead End for MicroRNAs},
  author={Ren{\'e} F Ketting},
Dead end (Dnd1) is an RNA-binding protein that mediates germ-cell viability and suppresses the formation of germ-cell tumors. Kedde et al. (2007) now provide evidence that Dnd1 mediates these effects by counteracting microRNA-mediated silencing of mRNAs.
