Angiogenesis and AngiomiRs in Non-Hodgkin' Lymphomas
pp.20-25 (6) Authors: Natalia Morais Borges, Gisele W.B. Colleoni
 
Abstract:

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of endogenous short non-coding RNAs that control gene expression by acting on target mRNAs for promoting either their degradation or translational repression. Some of them have involvement in regulating various aspects of angiogenesis, including proliferation, migration and morphogenesis of endothelial cells, which are important in cardiovascular development and cancer pathogenesis. The identification of angiomiRs (proangiomiRs and anti-angiomiRs) as the key to control angiogenesis has opened new paths in the treatment of vascular and oncology diseases. The study of tumor angiogenesis in non-Hodgkin´s lymphomas (NHL) is an interesting and important topic. In this mini-review we discuss the relationship between angiogenesis and NHL, main angiomiRs and their role as regulators of gene expression and as potential candidates for target-specific therapies.
