mir-137 and mir-124 are essential for the canonical differentiation of neural stems cells and neural progenitor cells. Abrogation of their expression could lead to cancer stem cell (CSC) formation and tumorogenesis. Upregulation of these two microRNAs in CSCs could present a therapeutic approach in differentiating these cells, thus eliminating their stem cell properties.
