MicroRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) are a family of small non-coding RNAs that function as oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes. Recent evidence suggests that the pri-miR-34b/c rs4938723 variant is associated with the development of cancer. At present, there is an inconsistent association between the single-nucleotide polymorphism in pri-miR-34b/c and cancer in the limited studies. The present study is a case-control investigation, with 263 breast cancer (BC) patients and 221 control women, which… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Pri-miR-34b/c rs4938723 polymorphism increased the risk of prostate cancer.
TLDR
It is proposed that Pri-miR-34 b/c rs4938723 variant may be a risk factor for the development of PCa in a sample of Iranian population.
Genetic polymorphisms of miRNA let7a‐2 and pri‐mir‐34b/c are associated with an increased risk of papillary thyroid carcinoma and clinical/pathological features
TLDR
It is shown that let7a‐2 rs1143770 and pri‐mir‐34b/c rs4938723 polymorphisms could be susceptible factors for PTC and some clinical features.
pri-miR-34 b / c rs 4938723 polymorphism is associated with hepatocellular carcinoma risk : a case-control study in a Chinese population
TLDR
The pri-miR-34b/c rs4938723 polymorphism was associated with a higher risk of HCC in the Chinese population examined, and further large-scale and multi-center studies are required to confirm these results.
The Relationship between Pre-miR-3131 3-bp Insertion/Deletion Polymorphism and Susceptibility and Clinicopathological Characteristics of Patients with Breast Cancer
TLDR
The findings did not support a relationship between pre-miR-3131 3-bp ins/del polymorphism and the risk of BC, while, this variant was significantly related to late onset BC.
Association between miR‐34b/c rs4938723 polymorphism and risk of cancer: An updated meta‐analysis of 27 case‐control studies
TLDR
The findings of this meta‐analysis indicated that the miR‐34b/c rs4938723 polymorphism might be associated with some cancer development, but larger and well‐designed studies are necessary to estimate this association in detail.
An updated meta-analysis of 23 case-control studies on the association between miR-34b/c polymorphism and cancer risk
TLDR
The results indicate that the rs4938723 gene is a susceptible locus for cancer, and a significant association between it and cancer risk in the overdominant model is indicated.
A genetic variant rs13293512 in the promoter of let-7 is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer in Chinese women
TLDR
Findings suggest that rs13293512 in the promoter of let-7a-1/let-7f-1 or let- 7d cluster may be a possible biomarker for the development of BC in Chinese women.
Predictive Value of MiR-219-1, MiR-938, MiR-34b/c, and MiR-218 Polymorphisms for Gastric Cancer Susceptibility and Prognosis
TLDR
This study found thatmiR-219-1 rs213210 polymorphism was associated with GC susceptibility and rs11134527 in miR-218 was positively correlated with GC prognosis.
Association of a potential functional mir-520f rs75598818 G > A polymorphism with breast cancer
Some of the single-nucleotide polymorphisms in miRNA genes have been studied to date to find their association with the risk of breast cancer (BC). However, no study has been conducted to investigate
