MicroRNAs are short non-coding RNA molecules that are involved in diverse physiological and developmental processes by controlling the gene expression of target mRNAs. They play important roles in almost all kinds of cancer where they modulate key processes during tumorigenesis such as metastasis, apoptosis, proliferation, or angiogenesis. Depending on the mRNA targets they regulate, they can act as oncogenes or as tumor suppressor genes. Multiple links between microRNA biogenesis and cancer… CONTINUE READING
