that experts on particular microRNA sequences will use the links to
Wikipedia below to edit the annotation of individual microRNAs, to add
information about function, evolution, discovery, and literature
references, for example. Any changes that you make will be visible in
Wikipedia immediately, and in miRBase within 24 hours.
Editing Wikipedia entries is straightforward. If you haven't
edited a page before, you might like to take a look at the following

You can also create new pages at Wikipedia about microRNA families
that do not currently have specific entries there. Please let us know
if you do, so we can incorporate your annotation into miRBase, and
create the appropriate links from miRBase entries to the relevant

In molecular biology, miR-194 microRNA precursor is a small non-coding RNA gene that regulated gene expression. Its expression has been verified in mouse (MI0000236, MI0000733) and in human (MI0000488, MI0000732). mir-194 appears to be a vertebrate-specific miRNA and has now been predicted or experimentally confirmed in a range of vertebrate species (MIPF0000055). The mature microRNA is processed from the longer hairpin precursor by the Dicer enzyme. In this case, the mature sequence is excised from the 5' arm of the hairpin.
