Minuscule molecules pack a powerful punch

...To uncover how miR-155 might cause such widespread disruption of the immune system, the team used genomic studies to identify protein genes whose activity was controlled by miR-155 in T-cells. Activity of more than 150 genes, with a large range of biological functions, was reduced by miR-155, demonstrating its ...

Chronic jet-lag conditions hasten death in aged mice
