A108 MicroRNAs (miRNAs) represent an exciting new class of small, regulatory biomolecules. Data to date suggests that as many as half of all genes may be regulated by miRNAs. Over the past few years, scientists have demonstrated that miRNAs play important roles in processes as diverse as early development, cell proliferation and differentiation, apoptosis and fat metabolism, and oncogenesis. Indeed, tumor-associated, differentially expressed miRNAs, termed "oncomirs," have been found in more… CONTINUE READING
