Identification of protein targets for microRNAs (miRNAs) is a significant challenge due to the complexity of miRNA-mediated regulation. We have previously demonstrated that miR-193b targets estrogen receptor-α (ERα) and inhibits estrogen-induced growth of breast cancer cells. Here, we applied a high-throughput strategy using quantitative iTRAQ (isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation) reagents to identify other target proteins regulated by miR-193b in breast cancer cells.
