- 210 - A New Role for MicroRNAs in Neurobehavioral Development -- Tal, Tanguay
Release Date: 06/06/2012
MicroRNAs may be tiny, but these short pieces of RNA regulate important human genes. The genes they regulate are also more sensitive to environmental chemical exposures. In a new study, researchers found environmental disruption of miRNAs can affect neurobehavioral development in zebrafish.
