hsa-mir-708: Hsa-mir-708 is one of the 18 miRNAs that were found to be consistently over-expressed in lung cancer tumor tissues [PMC10137184]. In a study, oligonucleotides for Ambion® hsa-mir-708–5p mimics, negative control, and hsa-mir-708 inhibitors were transfected into cells using TransIT-X2® transfection reagent [PMC6768854]. The over-expression of hsa-mir-708 in lung cancer tumor tissues suggests its potential role in the development and progression of lung cancer [PMC10137184]. The specific function and mechanism of hsa-mir-708 in lung cancer are yet to be fully understood. However, it is known that miRNAs play a crucial role in regulating gene expression by binding to the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of target mRNAs [PMC10137184]. Further research is needed to investigate the target genes and pathways regulated by hsa-mir-708 in lung cancer. Understanding the role of hsa-mir-708 may provide insights into potential therapeutic targets for lung cancer treatment [PMC10137184].
