MicroRNAs Team Up to Take Down Brain Cancer

MicroRNAs are small but powerful molecules in the cell. Containing only around 22 nucleotides, these small RNA molecules are responsible for binding to and silencing messenger RNA sequences before they can be translated into proteins, and thus are incredibly important regulators of gene expression. MicroRNAs (miRs) often regulate the expression …
