    Epstein-Barr virus-associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (EBV-HLH) is a life-threatening complication of EBV infection. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) were small non-coding RNA, and EBV could encode miRNAs that are involved in the progression of infection. However, the profiles of EBV-miRNAs in...

    The article discusses the behaviour of small RNAs in Caenorhabditis elegans, which regulate the developmental timing conserved from plants to mammals. It references several studies including the conservation of microRNAs (miRNAs), pairing rules for interaction between miRNAs and messenger RNAs...

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) repress target genes at the post-transcriptional level and play important roles in development and cell lineage decisions. In vertebrates, however, both the targets of miRNAs and their expression profiles during development are poorly understood. Thus far, 326 human miRNAs,...

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs, which function as critical posttranscriptional regulators of gene expression by promoting mRNA degradation and translational inhibition. Placenta expresses many ubiquitous as well as specific miRNAs. These miRNAs regulate trophoblast cell...

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short noncoding RNA molecules, approximately 22 nucleotides in length, which regulate gene expression through inhibition of the translation of target genes. It is now generally accepted that miRNAs guide processes and cellular functions through precise titration...

    Apoptosis induced by B-cell receptor (BCR) signaling is critical for antigen-driven selection, a process critical to tolerance and immunity. Here, we examined the roles of microRNAs (miRNAs) in BCR signaling-induced apoptosis using the widely applied WEHI-231 model. Comparison of miRNA levels in...

  • Novel Insights into miRNA in Lung and Heart Inflammatory Diseases. Kishore, Amit; Borucka, Jana; Petrkova, Jana; Petrek, Martin // Mediators of Inflammation;2014, Vol. 2014, p1 

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are noncoding regulatory sequences that govern posttranscriptional inhibition of genes through binding mainly at regulatory regions. The regulatory mechanism of miRNAs are influenced by complex crosstalk among single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within miRNA seed region and...

    The pathogenic lymphocryptovirus Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is shown to express at least 17 distinct microRNAs (miRNAs) in latently infected cells. These are arranged in two clusters: 14 miRNAs are located in the introns of the viral BART gene while three are located adjacent to BHRF1. The BART...
