miRNA modulate the host transcriptome during symbiont infection

08 December, 2017

​Check out our latest publication by Sebastian Baumgarten et al. reporting on posttranslational modifications during symbiont infection mediated by miRNAs. The identified miRNA target-genes that undergo regulation match previously observed changes in gene expression during infection, hence supporting the idea that miRNAs play an important role in symbiont uptake and recognition.
