In molecular biology mir-143 microRNA is a short RNA molecule. MicroRNAs function to regulate the expression levels of other genes by a several mechanisms. mir–143 is highly conserved in vertebrates. mir-143 is thought be involved in cardiac morphogenesis but has also been implicated in cancer.

This miRNA sequence was predicted based on homology to a verified miRNA from mouse [1]. Michael et al. subsequently verified expression of miR-143 in human, and demonstrated significantly reduced levels of the miRNA in precancerous and neoplastic colorectal tissue [2]. miR-143 cloned in [3] has a 1 nt 3' extension (A), which is incompatible with the genome sequence.
