Reversing diabetes with a selective microRNA inhibitor

Researchers have designed a structure-specific microRNA inhibitor that selectively represses a microRNA family member, which may in turn reverse the […]

Blood stem cells are linked to the progression of aggressive brain tumours

Using transcriptome analysis and gene expression sequencing, researchers have discovered that blood stem cells (HSPCs) cause increased cell division in […]

Tracing pre-cancerous steps

A team of researchers has developed a laboratory system to dissect pre-cancerous steps that previously remained undetectable. The tumour microenvironment […]

Researchers identify glycosylated RNA

Glycosylated RNA (GlycoRNAs) prior to 2019 were not known to exist. Now, researchers have found that they are present on […]
