This review explores the relationship between cytokines and microRNAs (miRNAs). In particular, the regulation of miRNAs by pro-inflammatory cytokines, anti-inflammatory cytokines, interferons and transforming growth factor beta are examined, highlighting how miRNAs can mediate some of the known functions of these cytokines, as well as identifying novel gene targets, mechanisms and cross-talk between pathways.
