GeneID: 484


Common Name: miR-130a Type: Gene
Chromosome: 11 (NC_000011.10) Locus: NR_029673.1 (MIR130A)
HUGO Symbol: MIR130A Full Name: microRNA 130a
Exons: N/A Introns: N/A

MicroRNAs (miRNAs), such as MIR130A, are small, non-coding RNAs that play key roles in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression by targeting specific mRNAs. Overexpression of MIR130A associated with the deregulation of the re-epithelisation processes, granulation tissue formation, and wound healing in diabetic patients with chronic venous ulcers. Similarly, overexpression of MIR130A associated with leg ulcers in sickle cell anaemia (SCA).

Synonyms: N/A
