  • Purpose of review MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression by binding to target mRNAs and control a wide range of biological functions. Recent reports have identified specific miRNAs as major regulators of fatty acid and cholesterol homeostasis. This review examines the biological function of various miRNAs and the emerging evidence linking specific miRNAs to critical pathways in lipid metabolism. Recent findings Disruption of lipid balance can lead to metabolic disturbances and thus tight… CONTINUE READING
