Non Coding RNA’s: Introduction to Non-Coding RNAs and the Role of MicroRNAs in GnRH Neurons

Prevot V

Fertility and puberty onset are controlled within the brain by a neural network that drives the secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from hypothalamic neuroendocrine neurons. During postnatal development, various permissive signals must be integrated for the initiation of sexual maturation but the molecular events that orchestrate the timely activation of the GnRH neurons remain a major unsolved biological mystery. Increasing evidences point out Micro-RNAs (miRNA...

The Role of MicroRNAs in Diabetes

Regazzi Romano

Background: MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression and play major roles in many physiological and pathological processes.Objective and hypotheses: Determine whether changes in microRNA expression contribute to β-cell dysfunction and/or loss and favor the development of diabetes.Method: Analysis of the changes in microRNA expression occurring in pancreatic islets of diabetes animal models and assessme...
