In this article, DiFeo and colleagues have utilized a miRNA 3′ UTR biosensor to study tumor-initiating cells in ovarian cancer and develop a high-throughput platform to uncover miRNA-targeting drugs. They have identified miR-181a as a potent driver of tumor initiation, which can be regulated by BET inhibitors, thus introducing a previously unknown biomarker for these drugs.
