MicroRNA is short 20-22-nucleotide RNA molecules. Unlike the messenger RNA (mRNA), microRNA is a type of non-coding RNA that is not translated into protein. These microRNAs bind complementarily to the mRNA sequence through the 2nd to 7th "seed site" from the 5' terminal of the microRNA sequence and inh...
