Joe’s paper on combinatorial targeting by miRNAs in regulating phenotype in breast cancer cells has appeared in Cell Systems.
Micro-RNAs are known to play important roles in driving switching between epithelial and mesenchymal phenotypes in cancer. In the paper we identify co-regulated miRNAs in breast cancer cells with functionally related protein targets, and show that cooperative interaction between these targets leads to highly coordinated regulation of epithelial-mesenchymal transition.
