Active turnover modulates mature microRNA activity in Caenorhabditis elegans

  title={Active turnover modulates mature microRNA activity in Caenorhabditis elegans},
  author={Saibal Chatterjee and Helge Gro\sshans},
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) constitute a large class of regulatory RNAs that repress target messenger RNAs to control various biological processes. Accordingly, miRNA biogenesis is highly regulated, controlled at both transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels, and overexpression and underexpression of miRNAs are linked to various human diseases, particularly cancers. As RNA concentrations are generally a function of biogenesis and turnover, active miRNA degradation might also modulate miRNA… CONTINUE READING
