The emerging role of microRNAs in immune cell development and differentiation
Abstract:Liang T-J, Qin C-Y. The emerging role of microRNAs in immune cell development and differentiation. APMIS 2009; 117: 635–43.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNA strands (20–25 nucleotides) that regulate gene expression by translational repression as well as by messenger RNA degradation. This review will examine the application and function of miRNAs in immune cell development and differentiation.
