Day 160 (7q31.33-7q33): a microRNA that helps you hear

Non-coding microRNAs (miRNAs) have a fundamental role in gene regulation and expression in almost every multicellular organism.http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnmol.2013.00052/full

Ushakov et al., Front. Mol. Neurosci., 23 December 2013

Day 160 has 51 protein-coding genes (browser view), but today we focus on a non-protein-coding gene, MIR96 (microRNA 96).

MIR96 regulates other genes that are important in hair cells in the inner ear, and mutations cause deafness in both humans and mice.
