Stopping the Message
We tend to think of cells as protein-making machines. And that’s not wrong. But for every machine, there needs to be a stop button; and in the case of the cells, that’s microRNA’s job. This hairpin shaped piece of nucleic acid is all it takes to dismantle and disable mRNA and stop protein synthesis in its tracks. Overexpression of certain proteins can lead to cancer, so it’s in your cells’ best interests to keep microRNA working properly. Our gold-plated necklace celebrates the tiny stop sign in your cells. Buy it for yourself or give it as a gift. It’s perfect for oncologists, microRNA researchers, cell biologists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
