Think of it as the “Rocky” RNA. Researchers here at the School of Medicine have found that a small piece of RNA, called a microRNA, plays a key role in determining when muscle stem cells in mice start to divide. It’s the first time a microRNA has been implicated in the maintenance of the adult stem cell resting state.
