f c h c c t p m c b icroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNAs controlling the activity of 30% of all proteinoding genes by inhibiting target mRNA translation and nducing its degradation. Growing evidence demontrates that miRNAs take part in regulating almost every ellular process, and that aberrant miRNA expression is a allmark of disease, including human cancer.1 Gastrointestinal (GI) and liver tumors are common nd there is an urgent need to identify critical targets for herapeutic… CONTINUE READING
