Choreographing the microRNA-target dance

Molecular biologists were able to uncover a new mechanism that choreographs a complex molecular dance by applying the latest in gene editing technology combined with a traditional method of making a microRNA target produce a fluorescent green protein. The successful ‚dance move‘ — called Argonaute phosphorylation — enables a microRNA to switch messenger RNA dance partners more efficiently. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
