Significance:  This study suggests, for the first time, that MiRNA-224, by suppressing the expression of its target gene, may decrease the expression of ADCY5/AC5.  Thereby, it may increase the lifespan of an individual.  Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing MiRNA-224 or its activators may be used to extend the life-span of an individual.
