MicroRNAs function as gene expression modulators that are critical for mammalian development. Lactoferrin receptor on the apical membrane of enterocytes has been suggested to play key roles in the absorption of lactoferrin-bound iron from breast milk. The objective of this study was to identify mechanisms of microRNA mediated post-transcriptional regulation of the lactoferrin receptor. Sequence analyses revealed that the miR-584 sequence is identical in human, mouse and rat, and there is a...[Show more]
