MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small molecules, which regulate cellular function by mediating transient translational repression. Recent studies have demonstrated a role for miRNAs as important modulators of stem cell function that can be transferred from cell to cell through gap junctional intercellular communication. Similar transfer of miRNAs has been… CONTINUE READING
