MicroRNAs (miRNAs), which are a newly identified class of small single-stranded non-coding RNAs, regulate their target genes via post-transcriptional pathway. It has been proved that miRNAs play important roles in many biological processes. To better understand miRNA function on type 2 diabetes, we used an oligonucleotide microarray to monitor miRNA expression profiles of Goto-Kakizaki (GK) and Wistar rats' skeletal muscle. It was found that seven miRNAs were downexpressed and two miRNAs were… CONTINUE READING
