FunctionDouble-stranded RNA (dsRNA) endoribonuclease playing a central role in short dsRNA-mediated post-transcriptional gene silencing. Cleaves naturally occurring long dsRNAs and short hairpin pre-microRNAs (miRNA) into fragments of twenty-one to twenty-three nucleotides with 3' overhang of two nucleotides, producing respectively short interfering RNAs (siRNA) and mature microRNAs. SiRNAs and miRNAs serve as guide to direct the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) to complementary RNAs to degrade them or prevent their translation. Gene silencing mediated by siRNAs, also called RNA interference, controls the elimination of transcripts from mobile and repetitive DNA elements of the genome but also the degradation of exogenous RNA of viral origin for instance. The miRNA pathway on the other side is a mean to specifically regulate the expression of target genes.
Involvement in diseasePleuropulmonary blastoma
Goiter multinodular 1, with or without Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors
Rhabdomyosarcoma, embryonal, 2
DICER1 mutations have been found in uterine cervix embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, primitive neuroectodermal tumor, Wilms tumor, pulmonary sequestration and juvenile intestinal polyp (PubMed:21882293). Somatic missense mutations affecting the RNase IIIb domain of DICER1 are common in non-epithelial ovarian tumors. These mutations do not abolish DICER1 function but alter it in specific cell types, a novel mechanism through which perturbation of microRNA processing may be oncogenic (PubMed:22187960).

4% formaldehyde-fixed SK-N-BE cells labeling Dicer using ab167444 at 1/100 dilution in ICC/IF. Cells were fixed for 15 minutes at room temperature and incubated with primary antibody for 1 hour at room temperature. Secondary antibody was a goat anti-mouse ATTO 488 (green) at 1/100 dilution incubated for 1 hour at room temperature. Counterstained with Phalloidin Texas Red F-actin stain. Nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue).
