Detail of glaucoma
ncRNA name mmu-miR-145
ncRNA Category miRNA
Disease name glaucoma
Species Mus musculus
Tissues/Cell_line vascular smooth muscle cells, pericytes, ciliary muscles and extraocular muscle
Methods transfection, phalloidin staining, qRT-PCR, luciferase reporter assay
Expression pattern up-regulated
Functional description Targeted deletion of miR-143/145 in mice results in significantly reduced IOP, consistent with an ~2-fold increase in outflow facilities.We found that miR-143/145 regulates actin dynamics and the contractility of TM cells, consistent with its regulation of actin-related protein complex (ARPC) subunit 2, 3, and 5, as well as myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) in these cells.
