miRNAs are single-stranded, small, non-coding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression at the translation level. They play a vital role in research, diagnostics, and therapeutics to study expression of genes and to control diseases by gene silencing. They interact with mRNA molecules and regulate expression of genes by mRNA cleavage, translational repression, and deadenylation. They are generally 17-27 nucleotides long and regulate post-transcriptional mRNA expression by binding to the 3′ untranslated region of the mRNA sequence, which results in translational suppression and gene silencing. miRNAs are involved in a wide range of biological processes, including apoptosis, cell cycle control, and several developmental processes such as stem cell differentiation, hypoxia, hematopoiesis, neurogenesis, insulin secretion, cardiac and skeletal muscle development, aging, cholesterol metabolism, viral replication, and immune responses. They can be used as therapeutics for the treatment of some severe diseases including cancer and genetic disorders by introducing specific miRNAs into diseased cells to silence the defective gene.
