Translation of KPNA2 mRNA is negatively regulated by mIR-26A and B, which bind directly to the 3'UTR. mIR-26A and B are both downregulated in the presence of estrogen in a manner that depends on estrogen-stimulated MYC gene expression. Of the nine identified estrogen-responsive, mIR-26 regulated genes, GREB1, CHD1 and KPNA2 are the only three that contribute to the proliferative response to estrogen (Tan et al, 2014). KPNA2 expression has also been demonstrated to be regulated by mIR-26 binding in ovarian cancer (Lin et al 2015).
