miRNAGE-34 induces cardiac damAGE

Cell Res. 2013 Jul;23(7):866-7. doi: 10.1038/cr.2013.57. Epub 2013 Apr 23.


Small non-coding microRNAs (miRNAs, miRs) regulate gene expression in virtually all cells, and they have been implicated in cardiovascular disease and aging. In a paper recently published in Nature, miR-34a was identified as an aging-associated apoptotic and overall damaging factor for the heart.
