EXPRESSION
Rna function
  • may play an important role in promoting proliferation of human breast cancer cells
  • regulates the progression of the physiological and morphological differentiation of cochlear hair cells and, as such, coordinates one of the most distinctive functional refinements of the mammalian auditory system
  • involved in the maturation of the hair cell stereocilia bundle and the remodelling of auditory nerve connections within the cochlea

  • targeting of FOXO1 by MIR96 may contribute to transformation or maintenance of an oncogenic state in breast cancer cells
  • directly targets the KRAS oncogene and functions as a tumor-suppressing miRNA in pancreatic cancer cells
  • potent regulator of KRAS
  • MIR96 downregulated FOXO3 expression by directly targeting the FOXO3a 3prime-untranslated region
