  1. Screening for Small Molecules: Target Discovery Against miRNAs for Breast Cancer Treatment

    18 Aug 2015 | Contributor(s):: Odemaris Narvaez del Pilar

    Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths and morbidity among women worldwide. Identifying new targets and developing new therapies is very important in order to improve patient outcomes and minimize this health burden. MicroRNAs, a type of non-coding RNA, are potential...

  2. Drug Selection of γδ T cells using miRNA target sequences

    18 Aug 2015 | Contributor(s):: Rosa Maria Santana Carrero

    Gamma delta T cells constitute a small subset of circulating T lymphocytes in peripheral blood, and recognize antigens in an MHC-independent manner through their γδ T cell receptor. We sought to selectively expand ablatable γδ T cells using an inducible suicide switch,...
