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 mRNAs. miRNAs are transcribed by RNA polymerase II as part of capped and polyadenylated primary transcripts (pri-miRNAs) that can be either protein-coding or non-coding. The primary transcript is cleaved by the Drosha ribonuclease III enzyme to produce an approximately 70-nt stem-loop precursor miRNA (pre-miRNA), which is further cleaved by the cytoplasmic Dicer ribonuclease to generate the mature miRNA and antisense miRNA star (miRNA*) products. The mature miRNA is incorporated into a RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), which recognizes target mRNAs through imperfect base pairing with the miRNA and most commonly results in translational inhibition or destabilization of the target mRNA. The RefSeq represents the predicted microRNA stem-loop. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MIR4750 Gene
Probable GTPase-activating protein for Rab8; its transient association with Rab8 is mediated by OPTN. Inhibits Rab8-mediated endocytic trafficking, such as of transferrin receptor (TfR) and reduces Rab8 recruitnment to tubules emanating from the endocytic recycling compartment (ERC). Involved in regulation of autophagy. Mediates inhibition of autophagy caused by the OPTN variant GLC1E LYS-50; the function requires its catalytic activity, however, the involved Rab is not known.
