Next generation sequencing reveals microRNA isoforms in liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) represents the major histological subtype of liver cancer. Tumorigenic changes in hepatic cells potentially result from aberrant expression of microRNAs (miRNAs). Individual microRNA gene may give rise to miRNAs of different length, named isomiRNAs that proved to be functionally relevant. Since microRNA length heterogeneity in… CONTINUE READING
