Abstract:


Muscle specific miRNAs, which are known as MyomiRs, are crucial regulatory elements for cardiovascular development. MyomiRs are abundantly expressed in the myocardium. myomiRs regulate certain aspects of physiological and pathological processes in myocardiocytes including cardiovascular development, myocardial remodeling and arise for cardiovascular diseases through different mechanisms such as epigenetic pathways. Clinical and experimental studies have confirmed the myomiRs as promising diagnostic biomarkers for the early diagnosis of cardiac disorders. In this review, we summarized recent findings linking to epigenetic modulations of myomiRs and cardiac regeneration associated with cardiac diseases.
