Synonyms MIR322, MIRN424, hsa-mir-424, miRNA424, MIR424
Description Homo sapiens miR-424 stem-loop
Comment This hairpin precursor expresses a 5' arm product, named miR-424, in human promyelocytic leukemia (HL-60) cells . The level of expression of miR-424 was shown to be up-regulated 48 hours after TPA-induction. The sequence is orthologous to the experimentally verified rat miR-322 locus (MIR:MI0000589), which expresses its mature product from the 3' arm of the hairpin. The human miR-424 hairpin does not appear to contain the miR-322 sequence.

Acting through degradation of target mRNA or inhibition of translation, microRNAs (miRNAs) regulate development, differentiation, and cellular response to diverse cues. We analyzed changes in miRNA expression in human placental trophoblasts exposed to hypoxia, which may result from hypoperfusion and placental injury. Using an miRNA microarray screen, confirmed by Northern blot analysis, we defined a set of seven miRNAs (miR-93, miR-205, miR-224, miR-335, miR-424, miR-451, and miR-491) that are differentially regulated in primary trophoblasts exposed to hypoxia. We combined in silico prediction of miRNA targets with gene expression profiling data to identify a series of potential targets for the miRNAs, which were further analyzed using luciferase reporter assays. Among experimentally confirmed targets, we found that the transcriptional coactivator MED1, which plays an important role in placental development, is a target for miR-205. Using gain- and loss-of-function assays, we confirmed that miR-205 interacts with a specific target in the 3;-UTR sequence of MED1 and silences MED1 expression in human trophoblasts exposed to hypoxia, suggesting that miR-205 plays a role in trophoblast injury.-Mouillet, J.-F., Chu, T., Nelson, D. M., Mishima, T., Sadovsky, Y. MiR-205 silences MED1 in hypoxic primary human trophoblasts.

BACKGROUND: Senile hemangioma, so-called cherry angioma, is known as the most common vascular anomalies specifically seen in the aged skin. The pathogenesis of its abnormal angiogenesis is still unclear. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: In this study, we found that senile hemangioma consisted of clusters of proliferated small vascular channels in upper dermis, indicating that this tumor is categorized as a vascular tumor. We then investigated the mechanism of endothelial proliferation in senile hemangioma, focusing on microRNA (miRNA). miRNA PCR array analysis revealed the mir-424 level in senile hemangioma was lower than in other vascular anomalies. Protein expression of MEK1 and cyclin E1, the predicted target genes of mir-424, was increased in senile hemangioma compared to normal skin or other anomalies, but their mRNA levels were not. The inhibition of mir-424 in normal human dermal microvascular ECs (HDMECs) using specific inhibitor in vitro resulted in the increase of protein expression of MEK1 or cyclin E1, while mRNA levels were not affected by the inhibitor. Specific inhibitor of mir-424 also induced the cell proliferation of HDMECs significantly, while the cell number was decreased by the transfection of siRNA for MEK1 or cyclin E1. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Taken together, decreased mir-424 expression and increased levels of MEK1 or cyclin E1 in senile hemangioma may cause abnormal cell proliferation in the tumor. Senile hemangioma may be the good model for cutaneous angiogenesis. Investigation of senile hemangioma and the regulatory mechanisms of angiogenesis by miRNA in the aged skin may lead to new treatments using miRNA by the transfection into senile hemangioma.
