Abstract

Melanoma is a common skin cancer associated with ultraviolet light exposure and genetic variance. However, the etiology and molecular mechanisms of melanoma remain unknown. Recent studies have shown that microRNAs (miRNAs) can play key roles in the development and prognosis of this disease. In this study, we reviewed several pivotal miRNAs that may contribute to melanoma by involvement in the processes of invasion, migration, and metastasis of melanoma cells.
