MicroRNAs are recently discovered naturally occurring RNA molecules (composed of 19 to 25 nucleotides) that do not encode proteins but instead regulate gene expression and various biological pathways. The improper balance of microRNAs are linked to many diseases, including cancer. As such, replacement or inhibition of deregulated microRNAs may act as a potent means to treat cancers.
