The miR-129 microRNA precursor is a small non-coding RNA molecule that regulates gene expression. This microRNA was first experimentally characterised in mouse and homologues have since been discovered in several other species, such as humans, rats and zebrafish. The mature sequence is excised by the Dicer enzyme from the 5' arm of the hairpin. It was elucidated by Calin et al. that miR-129-1 is located in a fragile site region of the human genome near a specific site, FRA7H in chromosome 7q32, which is a site commonly deleted in many cancers. miR-129-2 is located in 11p11.2.

This miRNA sequence was predicted based on homology to a verified miRNA cloned from mouse cerebellum [1]. Expression of this miRNA was subsequently verified in a human osteoblast sarcoma cell line [2]. Reference [2] named the human/mouse conserved sequence miR-129b, but subsequent genome searches suggest that the same mature sequence may be expressed from two predicted hairpin precursors in both human (this entry and MI0000252) and mouse (MI0000222 and MI0000585). Landgraf et al. show that the 5' product of mir-129-1 (MI0000222) is the predominant one, whereas both 5' and 3' products are significantly expressed from mir-129-2 (this entry) [3].
