MicroRNAs that should attack SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, diminish with age, and due to chronic health problems. The findings shed light on why those who are older, and those with health conditions are more susceptible to coronavirus.
Examining microRNA from a simple blood test can help determine whether your child is getting enough sleep.
Findings show sex-specific baizes in gene expression changes and demonstrate cellular control mechanisms based on microRNA change. The study sheds new light on genetic and neurological changes associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
A new fruit fly study reveals a simple genetic system is behind complex movements. The finding sheds light on motor control issues associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have developed a new approach that uses microRNA in combination with chemotherapy to help treat glioblastoma brain cancer. In preclinical models, the approach increases survival of the deadly brain cancer five fold.
A new study reports microRNAs in the blood are altered as a result of sleep deprivation. Researchers used MiRNA alterations as a biomarker to determine cognitive performance following psychological stress and sleep loss.
Researchers have discovered a new biomarker that can help diagnose Huntington's disease. They note the findings could result in the development of treatments to postpone neuron death in those who carry the Huntington's gene mutation, but who do not currently show symptoms of the disease.
Researchers have developed a new injectable gel that releases microRNAs into heart muscles, restarting the replication of existing caridomyocytes following a heart attack.
