MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNA molecules (~20 nucleotides) that post-transcriptionally regulate the expression of endogenous genes, shaping the transcriptome and protein production. In general, miRNAs are highly conserved in the genome of eukaryotes and considered important elements in many biological processes during development, such as cell growth, differentiation and death. The la...
Transcriptions factors are DNA-binding proteins that regulate the transcription of genes through binding to regulatory sequences located upstream from the promoter region of genes. Due to their regulatory function, the identification and characterization of transcription factors are important for understanding determinant biological processes, as cell differentiation and apoptosis. The ...
The Nile tilapia is an important African cichlid fish with rapid adaptive radiation and valuable economic production in worldwide aquaculture, mainly in Brazilian aquaculture. Different morphological and physiological features of Nile tilapia can influence its aquacultural production, such as gender, tolerance to poor quality water and feeding behavior. Non-coding small RNAs can be key ...
