In molecular biology miR-132 microRNA is a short non-coding RNA molecule. MicroRNAs function to regulate the expression levels of other genes by several mechanisms, generally reducing protein levels through the cleavage of mRNAs or the repression of their translation. Several targets for miR-132 have been described, including mediators of neurological development, synaptic transmission, inflammation and angiogenesis.

This human miRNA was predicted by computational methods using conservation with mouse and Fugu rubripes sequences [1]. Expression of the excised miR has been validated in zebrafish, and the 5' end mapped by PCR. The 3' end was not experimentally determined. The sequence maps to human chromosome 17, but its expression has not been experimentally verified in human.
