MicroRNA-33a (miR-33a) was previously identified as a lipid regulator that controls the cellular balance between cholesterol and fatty acid metabolism. However, its role in tumor progression is largely unknown. The present study identified that miR-33a acts as a tumor suppressor in melanoma cells. The present study revealed that miR-33a was downregulated in… CONTINUE READING
