The Role of miR-219a-5p in Bone Metabolism

Project: Research project

Project Details


PROJECT NARRATIVE This project will advance understanding of the biological mechanisms by which the specific microRNA, miR- 219a-5p, functions as a novel anabolic (e.g. bone forming) agent in bone metabolism. This knowledge could potentially lead to novel clinical treatments using miR-219a-5p mimics as a molecular tool to enhance bone formation in vivo, during both aging or following a fracture.
