MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are major post‐transcriptional regulators of gene expression. They base pair with the complementary target mRNA at the 3′UTR and modulate cellular processes by repressing the mRNA translation or degrading the mRNA. There are well‐documented mechanisms of biogenesis of miRNA; however, a sizeable number of miRNAs are also produced by non‐canonical pathways. Mirtrons represent a predominant...
