MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a family of small non-coding RNA molecules of 18-25 nucleotides in length. MiRNA expression patterns are highly conserved and can regulate many cellular processes which are essential in tissue development and functional maintenance. They are also crucial in the inflammation, repair, and remodelling response of tissue during wound healing. Wound healing is an intricate process to repair the skin or other organs after injury. Cell proliferation and angiogenesis play crucial roles in this process. MiRNAs have emerged as critical factors in cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and wound healing. In this review, we examine the effects of different microRNAs in cell proliferation and angiogenesis associated with wound healing.
