MiR-27a was identified as a key regulator of p44 mRNA. Moreover, miR-27a was shown to destabilize the p44 subunit of the TFIIH complex during the G2-M phase, thereby modulating the transcriptional shutdown observed during this transition.
MiR-27a played a regulatory role in megakaryocytic differentiation by attenuating Runx1 expression, which is an important cell lineage-specific regulator of hematopoiesis. Moreover, Runx1 and miR-27a were engaged in a feedback loop involving positive regulation of miR-27a expression by Runx1.
Cell division: MiR-27a was also reported as a novel factor fine-tuning the periodic events regulating cell cycle progression by regulation of FBW7.
