Graphical Abstract:


Muscle-specific miRNAs, which are known as MyomiRs, are crucial regulatory elements for cardiovascular development. MyomiRs are abundantly expressed in the myocardium and regulate certain aspects of physiological and pathological processes in myocardiocytes, including cardiovascular development, myocardial remodeling, and arise for cardiovascular diseases through different mechanisms, such as epigenetic pathways. Clinical and experimental studies have confirmed the myomiRs as promising diagnostic biomarkers for the early diagnosis of cardiac disorders. In this review, we have summarized recent findings in the field of epigenetic modulations of myomiRs and cardiac regeneration associated with cardiac diseases.

Keywords: MyomiRs, epigenetic, cardiac development, cardiac diseases, microRNA, cardiac regeneration.
