MicroRNA (miRNA) play an important role in controlling different processes that occur in cells through gene regulation. These small molecules are able to regulate many cellular processes by reducing target amounts in the cells. There are more than 1,900 locations in the human genome that are known to produce these miRNA molecules.
Bioresearchers at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia recently uncovered 3,400 new locations in the human genome that also produce miRNA molecules, offering up more options for further research into the relationship between miRNA and disease.
