CSHL Team Finds microRNA Regulatory Role for Lin-42 in C. elegans | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) this month reported new data showing that a C. elegans homolog of a human gene involved in circadian rhythms negatively regulates microRNA expression during the worms' development.

The findings indicate that the gene, lin-42, helps establish a cadence for miRNA-controlled developmental processes so that the worm's cells do what they are supposed to be doing without needing to communicate with each other, according to CSHL's Christopher Hammell, who led the research.
