Latest Messenger RNA Stories
Defects in the genome are the cause of many diseases.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression by mainly binding to the 3â€²-UTR of target mRNAs, leading to mRNA degradation or translation inhibition.
In a technique that could eventually shed light on how gene expression influences human disease, scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have for the first time ever successfully visualized single molecules of naturally-occurring messenger RNA (mRNA) transcribed in living mammalian cells.
Three weeks of oral resveratrol or LongevinexÂ® ingestion prior to an induced heart attack returned microRNA activity close to their pre-event levels in excised animal hearts.
A scientist from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute has discovered a molecular switch that controls the synthesis of ribosomes.
Expression of a toxic RNA that leads to Fragile X Tremor Ataxia Syndrome is modifiable by genetic or pharmacologic means.
Cells have their own version of the cut-and-paste editing function called splicing.
Fertility procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) require a couple and the doctor to place the risky bet that the multiple eggs they choose to fertilize will produce an embryo that will thrive in the uterus.
How a T cell decides to make protein X, Y, or Z can have profound effects for fighting foreign invaders or staving off dire autoimmune reactions.
Researchers report this month that MALAT1, a long non-coding RNA that is implicated in certain cancers, regulates pre-mRNA splicing â€“ a critical step in the earliest stage of protein production.
