What are AMOs (miRNA inhibitors) and how are they used?
Nov 17, 2016, 19:06 PM
Anti-microRNA Oligonucleotides (AMOs), or microRNA inhibitors, are steric blocking antisense reagents that inhibit microRNA (miRNA) function by hybridizing to and repressing the activity of a mature miRNA. The miRNA regulatory networks exert some level of control in the majority of cellular biological processes, including cell differentiation, apoptosis, and proliferation. AMOs/microRNA inhibitors can be used to inhibit miRNA function, both to investigate that function and for therapeutic purposes to correct diseases associated with miRNA dysregulation.
