Breakthrough article on mechanistic features of microRNA targeting and activity

Giovanna Brancati and Helge Grosshans from the FMI have described target specialization of miRNAs of the let-7 family. They identified target site features that determine specificity, and revealed that specificity can be modulated in a manner that allows cells to integrate target site quality and miRNA abundance. Their findings address the unresolved question of how miRNA family members can be targeting different transcripts within the same cell. Read more
