MIR92B is a microRNA that has been implicated in various biological processes, including inflammatory response, autophagy, and neuronal development. It has been shown to down-regulate TRAF3 and suppress the MKK3-p38 pathway in acute pancreatitis inflammatory disease [PMC9960688]. MIR92B is predicted to reside within the Cia10 interval on rat chromosome 2 [PMC3339715]. It has been found to negatively modulate the expression of EZH2, a histone-lysine N-methyltransferase that can influence autophagy [PMC8000899]. MIR92B has also been implicated in the development of intermediate cortical progenitors in the embryonic mouse brain [PMC5764268]. In addition, MIR92B has been shown to be involved in heart development and overall body patterning in zebrafish embryos [PMC9837005]. In cancer research, MIR92B expression has been found to be dysregulated in various malignancies and is associated with prognosis [PMC3569899] [PMC6368411]. Furthermore, MIR92B expression is inversely correlated with EZH2 expression in breast cancer cells and can influence autophagy processes [PMC6952790]. In PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), differential expression of miR-92a and MIR92B has been observed in the ovary [PMC7199502]. Overall, MIR92B plays a crucial role in various biological processes and may have potential implications for disease development.
