Aberrantly expressed microRNAs in the context of bladder tumorigenesis

MicroRNAs (miRNAs), small noncoding RNAs 19-22 nucleotides in length, play a major role in negative regulation of gene expression at the posttranscriptional level. Several miRNAs act as tumor suppressors or oncogenes that control cell differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, or angiogenesis during tumorigenesis. To date, 19 research groups have published… CONTINUE READING
