Understanding the molecular mechanism of aging is of utmost importance to the scientific
communities. To date, various theories have been proposed and many of them were evaluated as
potential targets in the battle against aging. MicroRNAs, the universal gene expression regulators,
were found to be associated with the aging process as many of them have been linked to biological
process associated with cellular deterioration. In this short report, we briefly review the contribution
of miRNAs to the aging process and offer an opinion as to how the knowledge of the role of these
molecules in aging can be utilized.
Keywords: Aging, biomarkers, miRNA, therapeutic targets.
