Identifying multiple sclerosis risk microRNAs and their target genes

Takeaway

  • The microRNAs (miRNAs) miR-30e, miR-93 and miR-155 are crucial microRNAs which regulate risk genes for multiple sclerosis (MS).

Why this matters

    Abnormal expression of miRNAs is associated with the development of MS by regulating target genes; however, few studies have comprehensively evaluated MS-related miRNAs and their target genes. These findings may help in the discovery of predictive biomarkers for MS in future studies.
