Molecular therapy for glioblastoma: MiRNA-766  inhibits the expression of JMJD6, impairs functioning of transcription elongation machinery, inhibits the proliferation of glioblastoma cells, suppresses tumor cell migration, reduces metastasis and prolongs survival via down regulation of its target gene, 28/July/2017,  10.57 pm

Introduction: What they say: A study from the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Lerner Research Institute, Ohio, USA shows that “Transcription elongation factors represent in vivo […]
