Hsa-mir-106a is a microRNA that is involved in the regulation of gene expression [PMC7770216]. According to a study by Zhang et al., it was found that HPV E7/DGCR8 inhibits the expression of RUNX3 and enhances radiation sensitivity by promoting the expression of hsa-mir-106a [PMC7770216]. In another study by Liang et al., it was observed that hsa-mir-106a has a reverse pattern of expression compared to its target genes BDH1, UPP1, TUSC2, and KMO in the short-term survival group [PMC3852212]. These target genes were found to be over-expressed in the short-term survival group [PMC3852212].

Annotation confidence High
Do you think this miRNA is real?
This miRNA was not cloned in reference [1], rather it was identified by homology to miR-91 (MIR:MI0000071). This sequence is localised to chromosome X and was named mir-106-X in [1]. Mouse and human miR-106a (MIR:MI0000406 and MIR:MI0000113) differ at two positions but the precursor sequences are clearly closely related. The sequences are also related to mir-17 (MIR:MI0000071 and MIR:MI0000687). The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [3].
