Large-scale data sets identify small RNAs with a role in epilepsy

A new paper from Jørgen Kjems' group at iNANO and MBG describes how expression of non-coding RNA changes during epileptic seizures in rodents. The authors found that inhibiting a specific set of microRNAs (miRNAs) by antisense technology reduced seizure frequency in a mouse model, suggesting that these RNA molecules could serve as possible targets…
