microRNAs (miRNAs) are short (20-24 nt) non-coding RNAs that are involved in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in multicellular organisms by affecting both the stability and translation of target mRNAs. This microRNA may play a role in osteoblast differentiation and a mutation in this gene is associated with osteoporosis. Altered expression of this microRNA has been observed in human cancers, with reduced expression seen in cervical cancer, while expression in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is increased.
