Abstract

Aging is a key risk factor in neurodegenerative disease; however, little is known about cellular pathways that mediate age-associated degeneration of the brain. The Bonini lab has identified a conserved microRNA, miR-34, that plays a neuroprotective role in the aging Drosophila brain and suggests that it functions in temporal control of gene expression.
