The mir-34 microRNA precursor family are non-coding RNA molecules that, in mammals, give rise to three major mature miRNAs. The miR-34 family members were discovered computationally and later verified experimentally. The precursor miRNA stem-loop is processed in the cytoplasm of the cell, with the predominant miR-34 mature sequence excised from the 5' arm of the hairpin. The mature miR-34a is a part of the p53 tumor suppressor network; therefore, it is hypothesized that miR-34 dysregulation is involved in the development of some cancers.

This human miRNA was predicted by computational methods using conservation with mouse and Fugu rubripes sequences [1]. Expression of the excised miR has been validated in zebrafish, and the ends mapped by cloning. Dostie et al. independently cloned this sequence in human but misnamed the sequence miR-172 (the sequence is unrelated to MIR172 from Arabidopsis) [2]. The sequence maps to human chromosome 1. Human miR-34a was previously named miR-34 here and in [1], but is renamed to clarify homology with the alternatively named mouse sequence (MI0000584). The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [3].
