MicroRNA and oral cancer: future perspectives.


MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that mediate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level by degrading or repressing target messenger RNAs (mRNA). They are about 22 nucleotides in length and regulate mRNA translation by base pairing to partially complementary sites, predominantly in the 3' untranslated region (3' UTR) of mRNA. In this… (More)
