OSU Team Links microRNA to ‘Clock’ that Controls Embryonic Tissue Segmentation | GenomeWeb

While microRNAs have already been established as key players in a host of regulatory and developmental processes, a new study from researchers at Ohio State University has linked a single one of these small, non-coding RNAs to proper embryonic tissue segmentation.

According to the study’s senior author, Susan Cole, the findings were particularly interesting because “we were able to look at a single microRNA/target pair, and [discovered that] interrupting that specific … interaction could have a profound phenotypic effect.”
