The miR-10 microRNA precursor family

RNA Biol. Sep-Oct 2011;8(5):728-34. doi: 10.4161/rna.8.5.16324. Epub 2011 Sep 1.


The miR-10 microRNA precursor family encodes a group of short non-coding RNAs involved in gene regulation. The miR-10 family is highly conserved and has sparked the interest of many research groups because of the genomic localization in the vicinity of, coexpression with and regulation of the Hox gene developmental regulators. Here, we review the current knowledge of the evolution, physiological function and involvement in cancer of this family of microRNAs.
