MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that play a role in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in most eukaryotes. They help in fine-tuning gene expression by targeting messenger RNAs (mRNA). The interactions of miRNAs and mRNAs are sequence specific and computational tools have been developed to predict miRNA target sites on mRNAs, but miRNA research has been mainly focused on target sites within 3' untranslated regions (UTRs) of genes. There is a need for an easily… CONTINUE READING
