MiRNAs are a conserved class of non-coding RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally. Although their biological roles are largely unknown, examples of their importance in cancer, metabolic disease, and viral infection are accumulating, suggesting that they represent a new class of drug targets in these and likely many other… CONTINUE READING
