The miR-192 microRNA precursor (homologous to miR-215), is a short non-coding RNA gene involved in gene regulation. miR-192 and miR-215 have now been predicted or experimentally confirmed in mouse and human. 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. mir-192 and mir-215 are thought to be positive regulators of p53, a human tumour suppressor. They are also overexpressed in gastric cancer, and could potentially be used as biomarkers or therapeutic targets. It has also been suggested that mir-192 could be used as a biomarker for drug-induced liver damage.

This mouse miRNA was predicted by computational methods using conservation with human 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 mature sequence differs from the human miR-215 at A12->U, and its expression has not been verified in mouse.
