MIR125B2 is a gene that was identified through the analysis of SNP sites in the genomic DNAs of offspring [PMC10014956]. This gene, along with other genes such as COL11A1, COL12A1, CATSPER2, KCNJ12, GP6 (ENSG00000088053), MIR99A (ENSG00000207638), MIR99AHG (ENSG00000215386), MIRLET7C (ENSG00000199030), and LINC01250, was selected based on its potential pathogenicity for ACL rupture and its shared regions in affected family members [PMC9536556]. These genes were also chosen because they have been previously associated with ACL rupture and have shared biology/function [PMC9536556]. The identification of SNP sites in the offspring's genomic DNAs allowed for the determination of the imprinting status of MIR125B2 [PMC10014956]. The selection of these specific genes was based on their potential role in ACL rupture and their shared characteristics with previously identified associated genes [PMC9536556]. This approach allowed for a comprehensive analysis that considered both genetic factors and shared biology/function in order to identify potential pathogenic genes related to ACL rupture.

Annotation confidence High
Do you think this miRNA is real?
This miRNA sequence is predicted based on homology to a verified miRNA from mouse [1]. Its expression was later verified in human BC-1 cells [2].
