The short ribonucleic acid molecules (20-24 nucleotides) known as microRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding RNAs that disrupt translation or degrade target mRNAs posttranscriptionally in a sequence-specific manner, and the miRNA may not be completely complementary to its targets. This class of RNAs is thought to be functionally important because many individual miRNAs are evolutionally conserved across widely diverse phyla. Further, miRNAs are associated with diverse biological phenomena, such as cell… CONTINUE READING
