Jak/Stat: IL-6 receptor family

JAK stands for Janus kinase. This is a family of intracellular, nonreceptor tyrosine kinases that transduce cytokine-mediated signals via the JAK-STAT pathway. The JAK-STAT signaling pathway transmits information from chemical signals, through STAT activation, into gene promoters on the DNA activating the DNA transcription.

mirTools 2.0

The MicroRNAs (miRNAs) can be defined as small, non-coding RNA. This miRNAs usually have a about 20 to 22 nucleotides. The main known role of this miRNAs is that they negatively regulate gene expression at post-transcriptional level. miRNAs play important roles in different pathological and physiological processes. Taken this into account, the identification and analysis …
