MiR-155 is a microRNA that in humans is encoded by the MIR155 host gene or MIR155HG. MiR-155 plays an important role in various physiological and pathological processes. Exogenous molecular control in vivo of miR-155 expression may inhibit malignant growth, viral infections, and attenuate the progression of cardiovascular diseases.

Human mir-155 is predicted based on homology to a cloned miR from mouse (MI0000177) [1], and later experimentally validated in human HL-60 leukemia cells [2]. Like the mouse miRNA, human mir-155 resides in the non-coding BIC transcript (EMBL:AF402776), located on chromosome 21 [3]. The mature form differs from that in mouse at a single position. Eis et al. confirm that miR-155 is processed from the BIC transcript in human, and demonstrate elevated expression of miR-155 in lymphoma samples [4]. The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [5].
