MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs which typically function by guiding cleavage of target mRNAs. They play important roles in development, abiotic stress, and responses to pathogens. In a recent paper, researchers from Zhejiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences used LC Sciences’ miRNA-seq and degradome-seq services to construct four small RNA libraries and four degradome libraries […]

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of noncoding small RNAs (sRNAs) that are 20–24 nucleotides (nt) in length. Extensive studies have indicated that miRNAs play versatile roles in plants, functioning in processes such as growth, development and stress responses. Chilling is a common abiotic stress that seriously affects plants growth and development. Recently, chilling-responsive miRNAs have […]

MicroRNA (miRNA) plays a key role in development and specific biological processes, such as cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. Extensive studies of mammary miRNAs have been performed in different species and tissues. However, little is known about porcine mammary gland miRNAs. In a recent study, published by researchers from Zhejiang University, they report the identification […]

The oncogenic isoform of HER2, HER2Δ16, is expressed with HER2 in nearly 50% of HER2 positive breast tumors where HER2Δ16 drives metastasis and resistance to multiple therapeutic interventions including tamoxifen and trastuzumab. In recent years microRNAs have been shown to influence multiple aspects of tumorigenesis and tumor cell response to therapy. Accordingly, the HER2Δ16 oncogene […]

RDX is a well-known pollutant to induce neurotoxicity. MicroRNAs (miRNA) and messenger RNA (mRNA) profiles are useful tools for toxicogenomics studies. Using LC Sciences’ miRNA microarray service, a team of researchers led by scientists from Wuhan University of Science and Technology integrated miRNA and mRNA expression data to understand RDX-induced neurotoxicity. In their study, rats […]

Unstructured interactions between proteins and other molecules or surfaces are often described as nonspecific, and have received relatively little attention in terms of their role in biology. However, despite their lack of a specific binding structure, these unstructured interactions can in fact be very selective. The lack of a specific structure for these interactions makes […]
