Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by deficits in social interactions, communication, language and in a limited repertoire of activities and interests. Genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors contribute to the onset of ASD. This work aims to provide an overview of the animal models of ASD and the role of the different miRNAs involved in this disorder. The results of this study showed that miRNA-125b, miRNA-132, miRNA-146a, miRNA-146b, miRNA-137, miRNA-134, miRNA-358 134-5p, miRNA-138-5p, miRNA-34a, miRNA-181c and miRNA-30d regulate the expression of several genes directly involved in ASD. On the basis of these observations, researchers have identified miRNAs as important biomarkers to discover new targets for ASD treatment. View this paper
