Day 274 (13q31.3-13q32.2): a gene desert with critical oncomirs


Day 274 has 16 protein-coding genes (browser view) and some of the best-studied microRNA genes: mir-17 and mir-92.

Like we saw nearby on Day 269 (13q14.2-13q21.1): two cancer-suppressing microRNAs, these genes are important in development and cancer. While those microRNAs were tumor suppressors, these are oncomirs – microRNAs that promote normal growth of cells and tumors.
