MicroRNA let-7 regulates the expression of ecdysteroid receptor (ECR) in Hyalomma asiaticum (Acari: Ixodidae) ticks

Abstract:

Background Ticks are blood-sucking arthropods that can transmit diseases to humans and animals. These arthropods are the second most important vectors of pathogens. MicroRNAs are a class of conserved small noncoding RNAs that play regulatory roles in gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. Molting is an important biological process in arthropods. Research on the molting process is important for understanding tick physiology and control.
