miRNAs in bacteria?

Post by mrswoody » Tue Mar 22, 2016 9:35 pm

Does H. pylori have miRNAs that may target p27 in humans?
I am not a scientist but it is my understanding that only viruses possess miRNAs.
I thank you very, very much for any response.

wow.. this is a tough one. the simple answer is yes, HP has microRNA and I would expect every living things to have it. This is a relatively new topic and scientist is still scratching the surface to understand what does it do. It seems like it has a purpose of regulating gene expression. But how it itself is regulated is unknown.
