microRNAs in Neurodegeneration: Current Findings and Potential Impacts
Received Date: Jan 02, 2018 / Accepted Date: Jan 16, 2018 / Published Date: Jan 23, 2018
Significant advancements have been made in unraveling and understanding the non-coding elements of the human genome. New insights into the structure and function of noncoding RNAs have emerged. Their relevance in the context of both physiological cellular homeostasis and human diseases is getting appreciated. As a result, exploration of noncoding RNAs, in particular microRNAs (miRs), as therapeutic agents or targets of therapeutic strategies is under way. This review summarizes and discusses in depth the current literature on the role of miRs in neurodegenerative diseases.
