MicroRNAs Improve Behavior, Motor Function in Rett Mouse Model

The use of microRNA molecules that targeted a protein receptor important for nerve cell growth led to improved behaviors and motor function in a Rett syndrome mouse model, a study shows. These molecules were carried by tiny vesicles called exosomes, which were derived from human urinary stem cells. The findings support further development of this strategy to improve brain function and movement in people with Rett, the researchers said. Their study, “Human urine-derived stem cell-derived…
