MIR96 is a microRNA that has been found to be associated with progressive hearing loss [PMC3259013]. Understanding the pathogenic mechanisms that connect MIR96 mutations to this condition is crucial for the development of personalized therapeutic approaches for individuals carrying these mutations [PMC3259013]. However, there is insufficient coverage of MIR96, which may limit our current knowledge about its role in hearing loss [PMC8738750]. Further research is needed to fully comprehend the impact of MIR96 mutations and to explore potential therapeutic interventions for affected individuals.
