miRNA targeted small molecule library
MicroRNAs (miRs) are small (~18e25 nucleotides), noncoding RNAs, involved in regulation of cell division, proliferation, and death.
MiRs can have a role in a wide range of diseases including cancer, neurologic disorders, autoimmune diseases, metabolic diseases, and cardiovascular diseases.
Since their discovery in 1993, over 2500 human mature miRs have been found; their mechanism of action and functions are focus for the ongoing research [1, 2].
Despite the fact that numerous small molecules have been discovered over the last decade, research into miR targeted small molecules has just started. We share CheDiv's miR-targeted library in hope to help this field continue to thrive.
