  • As an important part of epigenetics, microRNAs can regulate about 60% of protein-coding genes in human genome, and participate in the regulation of growth and development, cell proliferation and apoptosis, fat metabolism, viral immunity and so on. So far, a large number of studies have explored the high correlation between abnormally expressed microRNAs and various liver diseases. This article reviews the recent studies on the mechanism and characteristics of microRNAs in viral hepatitis B, non… CONTINUE READING
