MicroRNAs — keeping cells in formation

Abstract

During epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) cells loosen their intercellular contacts and leave the epithelial layer. Three microRNA (miRNA) families modulate EMT upstream of the key cell-adhesion protein E-cadherin, highlighting the potential importance of miRNAs in EMT-dependent processes, such as mesoderm development and tumour metastasis.
