Yale Scientists Find MicroRNA Regulates Ras Cancer Gene

...-7 as a cell division regulator, Slack's team used bioinformatics and found the relationship to Ras. Let-7 in humans is identical to the sequence in the worm, and both binding site and pathway for Ras are highly conserved. Tissue from lung cancer tumors, compared with their normal adjacent tissue, had reduced let-...
