Original Description (Extracted from the article) ... Indeed, introduction of synthetic miR-150 duplex into HEK293 cells had no effect on the Igf2 3' UTR reporter (Fig. S4 B). Furthermore, when the putative miR-150 target site was mutated in its seed region (Fig. S4 A), the mutant reporter behaved identically to the wild- type reporter during C2C12 differentiation (Fig. S4 C). These re- sults suggest that miR-150 is unlikely to regulate Igf2, and they also serve as negative controls that validate the reporter assays (Fig. 6), identifying miR-125b as a bona fide Igf2 regulator. ...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as key regulators of skeletal myogenesis, but our knowledge of the identity of the myogenic miRNAs and their targets remains limited. In this study, we report the identification and characterization of a novel myogenic miRNA, miR-125b. We find that the levels of miR-125b decline during myogenesis and that miR-125b negatively modulates myoblast differentiation in culture and muscle regeneration in mice. Our results identify IGF-II (insulin-like growth factor 2), a critical regulator of skeletal myogenesis, as a direct and major target of miR-125b in both myocytes and regenerating muscles, revealing for the first time an miRNA mechanism controlling IGF-II expression. In addition, we provide evidence suggesting that miR-125b biogenesis is negatively controlled by kinase-independent mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling both in vitro and in vivo as a part of a dual mechanism by which mTOR regulates the production of IGF-II, a master switch governing the initiation of skeletal myogenesis.
