Human Metapneumovirus Infection Induces Significant Changes in Small Noncoding RNA Expression in Airway Epithelial Cells

Abstract

Small noncoding RNAs (sncRNAs), such as microRNAs (miRNA), virus-derived sncRNAs, and more recently identified tRNA-derived RNA fragments, are critical to posttranscriptional control of genes. Upon viral infection, host cells alter their sncRNA expression as a defense mechanism, while viruses can circumvent host defenses and promote their own propagation by… (More)
