MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short non-coding RNAs that posttranscriptionally modulate the expression of multiple target genes and are thus implicated in a wide array of cellular and developmental processes. Recently miRNAs and their close associations with malignant tumors remain a major concern. Nowadays microRNA-155(miRNA-155) has been found to be involved in different types of malignant tumors. Here we summarize the research progress of relationship between miRNA-155 and its association with malignant tumors.

Key words: microRNA, microRNA-155, malignant tumor, target gene
