Abstract

MicroRNAs were discovered approximately two decades ago, and have dramatically changed our understanding of physiological and pathological functions since. These small (?22 nucleotides in length) non- coding RNAs, have the ability to silence the expression of various genes either through mRNA degradation or prevention of mRNA translation to proteins. They have been associated with cardiac development, structure and function but also with every aspect of cardiovascular disease. They can be detected in organs but also in the circulation. A constantly expanding number is shown to have diagnostic or prognostic value. Finally, they are already serving as novel therapeutic targets and/or tools, through a broad range of approaches.
