Synonyms:
  • gene silencing by miRNA, production of miRNAs
  • microRNA biogenesis
  • microRNA biosynthesis
  • microRNA biosynthetic process
  • microRNA metabolic process
  • microRNA metabolism
  • microRNA processing
  • microRNA-mediated gene silencing, production of microRNAs
  • miRNA biogenesis
  • miRNA processing
  • miRNA-mediated gene silencing, production of miRNAs
  • production of microRNAs involved in gene silencing by microRNA
Definition: Cleavage of stem-loop RNA precursors into microRNAs (miRNAs), a class of small RNAs that primarily silence genes by blocking the translation of mRNA transcripts into protein, or by increasing the degradation of non-protein-coding RNA transcripts. (4)
