MicroRNAs miR-17, miR-19a, miR-19b, miR-20a, miR-20b, miR-21, miR-22, miR-25, miR 26A1, miR 26A2, miR-93, miR-106a, miR-106b, miR 205, and miR 214 and bind PTEN mRNA and inhibit its translation into protein. These microRNAs are altered in cancer and can account for changes in PTEN levels. There is evidence that PTEN mRNA translation is also inhibited by other microRNAs, such as miR-302 and miR-26B, and these microRNAs will be annotated when additional experimental details become available (Meng et al. 2007, Xiao et al. 2008, Yang et al. 2008, Huse et al. 2009, Kim et al. 2010, Poliseno, Salmena, Riccardi et al. 2010, Zhang et al. 2010, Tay et al. 2011, Qu et al. 2012, Cai et al. 2013). In addition, coding and non coding RNAs can prevent microRNAs from binding to PTEN mRNA. These RNAs are termed competing endogenous RNAs or ceRNAs. Transcripts of the pseudogene PTENP1 and mRNAs transcribed from SERINC1, VAPA and CNOT6L genes exhibit this activity (Poliseno, Salmena, Zhang et al. 2010, Tay et al. 2011, Tay et al. 2014).
