Are small RNAs a novel class of hormones?
September 2023
Small RNAs can be secreted by specific cells into circulation and absorbed by other cells. In this way, small RNAs can potentially mediate a hormone-like effect. EDMaRC researchers have just received funds from the Svend Andersen Foundation to unravel this question.
