MicroRNAs miR-20a-5p and miR-20b-5p, encoded by MIR20A and MIR20B genes, respectively, bind the 3'UTR of PTEN mRNA and downregulate PTEN mRNA translation (Poliseno et al. 2010, Tay et al. 2011). miR-20a-5p downregulates both PTEN mRNA and protein levels and is thus considered to function as part of the endonucleolytic RISC, but it may also function as a part of nonendonucleolytic RISC (Poliseno et al. 2010). miR-20b presumably functions in a similar manner (Tay et al. 2011).
