Micro RNAs (miRNAs) constitute a family of small, single-stranded RNAs (ssRNAs) involved in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression and in ultimately shaping the transcriptome of a cell. While our views on the biological significance and relevance of miRNA signaling continue to evolve, it is now generally recognized that the principal action of miRNA in all species of plants and animals is to recognize, and then bind, via highly selective hydrogen bonding, to specific… CONTINUE READING
