1. In differentiated cells (right), let-7 pri-miRNA undergoes processing, resulting in the formation of mature Let-7 micro-RNA, which inhibits the expression of target genes at the post-transcriptional level. In undifferentiated embryonic cells (left), LLin28 binds Let-7 pri-miRNA and interferes with its processing
