microRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level and are involved in the central nervous system development. Here, we demonstrate that miR-181a can inhibit the expression of the transcription factor CREB1 by specifically targeting its mRNA 3′UTR and inhibit the development of hippocampus neurons. Repressed expression of miR-181a is involved in IGF-1-mediated up-regulation of CREB1 in vivo and in vitro. These findings indicate that miR-181a could be a potential target for preventing neurodegenerative diseases.
