MicroRNA-409-5p promotes retinal neovascularization in diabetic retinopathy

Ying Wang, Wenwen Lin & Jianghua Ju
Background: Retinal neovascularization, which is characterized by the increased proliferation, migration, and tube formation of retinal microvascular endothelial cells (RMECs), contributes to the progression of diabetic retinopathy (DR). MiR-409-5p has been reported to be upregulated in peripheral blood of DR patients and in vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced RMECs. However, the role of miR-409-5p in retinal neovascularization of DR remains unelucidated. Method: The expression of miR-409-5p was measured in retinal tissues of streptozocin-induced and db/db...
