Abstract

The process of neoangiogenesis is one of the classic hallmarks of a cancer. Its intricate mechanisms have long been one of the major domains in cancer research and a hope for a therapeutic breakthrough. Last decade a new subgroup of non-coding RNA molecules was reported called microRNAs. Literally hundreds of new molecules in this class are being uncovered as pivotal regulators in virtually all intracellular processes. The aim of this study is to classify and review those microRNA molecules that have a role in the processes of tumor angiogenesis and map their places in the regulatory framework of the classical proangiogenic genes and their canonical cascades.
