mir-786, which is strongly expressed in posterior intestinal cells, inhibits the translation or stability of mRNA from the elo-2 gene, which encodes a fatty acid elongase that acts to lengthen the DMP cycle period [42]. [score:7]
Although elo-2 is transcribed in all intestinal cells, its activity is downregulated in posterior cells by mir-786. [score:4]
To explain these results, it has been proposed that mir-786 acts in posterior cells to lower a threshold that they have for a factor that stimulates Ca [2+] release [41]. [score:1]
Recent work has shown that a microRNA, mir-786, is responsible for restricting DMP pacemaker activity to the posterior-most intestinal cells by affecting lipid composition. [score:1]

Other miRNAs from this paper: hsa-mir-122
In fact, it has been shown that miR-786 directly represses elo-2 expression resulting in significantly elevated palmitate levels [51]. [score:4]
