The myomiR network in skeletal muscle plasticity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

141 Scopus citations


MicroRNA (miRNA) are a class of noncoding RNA involved in regulating gene expression by a posttranscriptional mechanism. Based on work from our laboratory, this review explores the hypothesis that a recently described muscle-specific miRNA, myomiR, network has a central role in the regulation of skeletal muscle plasticity by coordinating changes in fiber type and muscle mass in response to altered contractile activity.
