microRNAs and their functions
Putting microRNAs in their place
Scientists have discovered a novel protein complex that may help shed light on the function of a newly discovered class of small RNAs, as well as a common hereditary neurodegenerative disease. Published in G&D, researchers have successfully identified 31 novel very small RNAs, called microRNAs (miRNAs), and the protein complex that houses them. By identifying the components of this complex, the scientists were able to infer potential functions for the miRNAs.
