Also known as
EDICT; MIRN184; miR-184
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 represents the most abundant miRNA in the corneal and lens epithelia of the eye and has been shown to interfere with target binding by another miRNA, miR-205. Through regulation of the VEGF and Akt signaling pathways, this microRNA may inhibit corneal angiogenesis. Mutations in the seed region of this microRNA cause familial keratoconus with cataract, also known as EDICT syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2017]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
