“miRNAs and Alternative Polyadenylation” Abstract: MiRNAs are small regulatory RNAs that pair with 3’UTRs and repress mRNA translation. Because these recognition elements are degenerated, and small, miRNA targets are difficult to identify, thus the vast majority are still unknown. Alternative Polyadenylation (APA) is an elusive process that produces genes with different mRNA 3’end isoforms. While [Read More...]
