We want to draw your attention to the latest publication in cooperation with TAmiRNA. The study identifies a novel and unexpected role of miR‐146a in bone homeostasis. miR‐146a increases with age and acts as an epigenetic molecular switch terminating bone accrual, leading to bone loss during aging by downregulating bone anabolic Wnt signaling. Conversely, loss of miR‐146a leads to continuous bone accrual during aging as a result of unrestricted bone anabolism and intact Wnt signaling. Therefore, miR‐146a crucially controls the temporal facet of bone homeostasis. "microRNA-146a controls age-related bone loss" Saferding V, Hofmann M, Brunner JS, et al.

We want to draw your attention to the latest publication of the VINFORCE research Group in cooperation with TAmiRNA GmbH, in Scientific Reports from Nature. “Bone-related circulating microRNAs miR-29b-3p, miR-550a-3p, and miR-324-3p and their association to bone microstructure and histomorphometry.” Scientific Reports, Volume 8,4867 (2018) MicroRNAs are promising new biomarkers for bone diseases. The findings enhance the potential value of circulating miRNAs as bone biomarkers and the clinical utility of miRNAs to reflect dynamic changes in bone formation and microstructure.
