MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a set of small single-stranded noncoding RNAs with diverse biological functions. As a prototypical hypoxamir, human microRNA-210 (hsa-miR-210) is one of the most widely studied miRNAs thus far. In addition to its involvement in sophisticated regulation of numerous biological processes, miR-210 has also been shown to be associated with the development of different human diseases including various types of cancers, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and immunological diseases. Given its multi-faceted functions, miR-210 may serve as a novel and promising theranostic target for prevention and treatment of diseases. Areas covered: This review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of miR-210, the regulation of its expression, biological functions and molecular mechanisms, with particular emphasis on its diagnostic and therapeutic potential. Expert opinion: Although the exact roles of miR-210 in various diseases have not been fully clarified, targeting miR-210 may be a promising therapeutic strategy. Further investigations are also needed to facilitate therapeutic-clinical applications of miR-210 in human diseases.
