Abstract: 

Objective: Micro-RNAs (miRNAs) are a class of posttranscriptional regulators that play crucial roles in various biological processes. Emerging evidence suggests a direct link between miRNAs and development of several diseases including type 2 diabetes (T2D).
In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of predicted miRNA and target genes on insulin resistance.
Materials and Methods: This experimental study was conducted on the C2C12 cell line.
Using bioinformatics tools miRNA-135 and two respective target genes-insulin receptor (Insr) and vesicle associated membrane protein 2 (Vamp2) - were selected as potential factors involved in insulin resistance process. Levels of glucose uptake miRNA expression and respective gene targets were determined after cell transfaction by miR-135.
Results: It was determined that Insr gene expression was significantly down-regulated in miR-135 transfected C2C12 cell line (P?0.05). Interestingly; these transfected cells have shown a significant difference in glucose uptake incomparision the positive control cells, while it was similar to the insulin resistant cell line (P?0.05). In contrast, no significant alteration ofVamp2 gene expression was observed.
Conclusion: Our data indicated no change on the Vamp2 expression level after miRNA transfection, while expression level ofInsr was reduced and miR-135 expression was contrarily increased leading to poor stimulation of glucose uptake through insulin, and development of insulin resistance phenotype in C2C12 cell line.
