Mir-10 Micro RNA Precursor Family
The miR-10 microRNA precursor is a short non-coding RNA gene involved in gene regulation. It is part of an RNA gene family which contains miR-10, miR-51, miR-57, miR-99 and miR-100. miR-10, miR-99 and miR-100 have now been predicted or experimentally confirmed in a wide range of species. (MIPF0000033, MIPF0000025) mir-51 and mir-57 have currently only been identified in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (MIPF0000268, MIPF0000271). microRNAs are transcribed as ~70 nucleotide precursors and subsequently processed by the Dicer enzyme to give a ~22 nucleotide product. In this case the mature sequence comes from the 5' arm of the precursor. The mature products are thought to have regulatory roles through complementarity to mRNA.

Famous quotes containing the word family:
“I worry about people who get born nowadays, because they get born into such tiny familiessometimes into no family at all. When youre the only pea in the pod, your parents are likely to get you confused with the Hope Diamond. And that encourages you to talk too much.”
—Russell Baker (b. 1925)
