Current Perspectives in microRNAs (miRNA) by Piotr Kozlowski, Julia Starega-Roslan (auth.), Shao-Yao Ying

By Piotr Kozlowski, Julia Starega-Roslan (auth.), Shao-Yao Ying (eds.)

Nearly ninety seven% of the human genome is the non-coding DNA, which varies from one species to a different, and adjustments in those sequences are usually spotted to take place scientific and circumstantial malfunction. a number of non-protein-coding genes are lately came across to encode microRNAs, that are chargeable for RNA-mediated gene silencing via RNA interference (RNAi)-like pathways. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), small single-stranded 17–25 nucleotide RNAs able to interfering with intracellular messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that include both entire or partial complementarity, are worthwhile for the layout of recent treatments opposed to melanoma polymorphism and viral mutation. at present over one thousand local miRNA species present in vertebrates and lots of extra new miRNA homologs remain pointed out; even though, so much in their services stay to be decided. during this booklet, many new views of the miRNA study are reviewed and mentioned, together with their roles in stem cellphone upkeep, embryonic improvement, tissue differentiation, grownup body structure, ailment pathology, melanoma learn, viral an infection, genetic engineering in vegetation, and software in beauty purposes. those new findings would possibly not merely offer major perception into many of the mechanisms of miRNAs but in addition provide an excellent chance in constructing new healing interventions.

With a deeper understanding of the roles and mechanisms of small RNA-directed gene regulation, new technologies of using small RNAs will continue to be developed and established. We expect that such small RNA technologies will be expanded from the current siRNA or artificial miRNA directed post-transcriptional gene regulation to transcriptional gene regulation, for example, small RNA directed chromatin modifications or DNA methylation, to modulate the expression of any gene of interest. Small RNA technologies will not only used as tools to silence genes of various pathways but also genes of small RNA pathways themselves.
