The genes encoding Hfq-dependent sRNAs possess a typical Rho-independent transcription terminator. Here, we have studied the molecular events occurring at Rho-independent terminators of sRNA genes, focusing on two well-characterized Hfq-binding sRNAs, SgrS and RyhB. We constructed several hybrid genes in

We previously reported that Runx2/miR-3960/miR-2861 regulatory feedback loop stimulates osteoblast differentiation. However, the effect of this feedback loop on the osteogenic transdifferentiation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) remains unclear. Our recent study showed that miR-2861 and miR-3960 expression increases
