Do MicroRNAs Preferentially Target the Genes with Low DNA Methylation Level at the Promoter Region?

Abstract

DNA methylation in genes’ promoter regions and microRNA (miRNA) regulation at the 3’ untranslated regions (UTRs) are two major epigenetic regulation mechanisms in majority of eukaryotes. Both DNA methylation of gene’s 5’promoter region and miRNA targeting 3’ UTR can suppress gene expression and play very important roles in regulating many cellular processes… (More)
