MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a large class of endogenous approximately 22-nucleotide long non-coding RNAs involved in post-transcriptional silencing of gene expression by translational repression or direct cleavage of the target mRNAs. Several hundreds of miRNAs have now been identified in a wide range of organisms including many viruses. Marek's disease virus serotype 1 (MDV-1) is a highly contagious oncogenic herpesvirus that induces fatal T-cell lymphomas in chickens. MDV-1 has been shown recently… CONTINUE READING
