NIH Team Finds miRNAs that Differentiate Young and Old with Dx Potential for Age-related Diseases | GenomeWeb

A team of researchers from the National Institutes of Health has identified three circulating microRNAs that were differentially expressed in the serum of older versus younger individuals in a small sequencing study.

Based on pathway analysis, the group showed that the three molecules — which were downregulated in older subjects compared to younger subjects — are likely involved in inflammation and may be a biological marker of the aging process.
