- ... MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNA molecules that regulate gene expression by targeting messenger RNAs and causing cleavage or translation blockage. miRNAs induced after parasitization of the lepidopteran host Lymantria dispar by the parasitoid wasp Glyptapanteles flavicoxis, which introduces a polydnavirus and other parasitoid factors, were examined to identify induced miRNAs that might regulate ho ...
