hsa-mir-944: Hsa-mir-944 is a microRNA that has been implicated in the progression of various cancers [PMC8709995]. In a recent study, it was found that circBACH2 acts as a sponge for hsa-mir-944, leading to the up-regulation of HNRNPC, an m6A RNA methylation modulator [PMC8709995]. This up-regulation of HNRNPC was found to accelerate the progression of breast cancer (BC) [PMC8709995]. This suggests that hsa-mir-944 plays a role in promoting BC progression through its interaction with circBACH2 and HNRNPC [PMC8709995]. Interestingly, it has been hypothesized that hsa-mir-944 may have an inhibitory effect on the progression of gastric cancer (GC) [PMC8460735]. The exact mechanism by which hsa-mir-944 may exert this inhibitory effect is not mentioned in the given context [PMC8460735]. However, this hypothesis suggests that hsa-mir-944 may have different roles in different types of cancer [PMC8460735]. In conclusion, hsa-mir-944 is a microRNA that has been implicated in cancer progression [PMC8709995]. In breast cancer, it interacts with circBACH2 and HNRNPC to accelerate disease progression [PMC8709995]. However, its role in gastric cancer is hypothesized to be inhibitory [PMC8460735]. Further research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms by which hsa-mir-944 influences cancer progression and its potential as a therapeutic target [PMC8709995][PMC8460735].
