Exosomal microRNAs (miRNAs) have been implicated in the development and progression of a variety of tumors; however, whether they contribute to medulloblastoma (MB) tumorigenesis remains to be elucidated. To address this, we first characterized the miRNA profiles of circulating exosomes by miRNA sequencing to identify miRNAs differentially expressed between children with MB and healthy controls. Then, we conducted in vitro and in vivo functional assays with the identified miRNAs and their predicted targets. Read More
