  MicroRNAs in Medicine provides an access point into the current literature on microRNA for both scientists and clinicians, with an up-to-date look at what is happening in the emerging field of microRNAs and their relevance to chapter is a comprehensive review, with descriptions of the latest microRNA research written by international leaders in their field. First identified a decade ago, microRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNA molecules that appear to regulate gene expression. Found in plant and animal species and possibly traceable back to ancient forms of life, miRNAs are now estimated to regulate a third or more of human genes.2/5(1).   MicroRNAs are short non-coding RNAs that function as negative regulators of gene expression. Posttranscriptional regulation by miRNAs is important for many aspects of development, homeostasis and disease. Endothelial cells are key regulators of different aspects of vascular biology including the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis).Cited by: MicroRNAs constitute a particularly important class of small RNAs given their abundance, broad phylogenetic conservation and strong regulatory effects, with plant miRNAs uniquely divulging their ancient evolutionary origins and their strong post-transcriptional regulatory effects. In Plant.

Book Description This wide-ranging reference work will be an invaluable resource for all those wishing to use miRNA techniques in their own research, both in academia and industry. From their discovery, functions and detection to their role in disease biology, this volume uniquely integrates basic miRNA biology with future by: This book will be of immense help for researchers in the field of cancer research.” (Omer Iqbal, Doody’s Review Service, March, ) “Offers a compilation of reviews in the emerging field of microRNAs in cancer . these reviews are concise and informative and provide a starting point to key aspects of this rapidly evolving field. . Covering the full range of relevant concepts and giving a look into present and future possibilities, Mapping of Nervous System Diseases via MicroRNAs is a necessary cutting-edge reference for neurologists, neuropathologists, and researchers and practitioners in a wide range of related fields.   1.
