Additionally, miR-126 could enhance EPC homing to thrombogenic and ischemic area by targeting PIK3R2 and CXCR4, which plays an important role in the therapeutic effect of EPCs on ischemic diseases [39, 49, 50].

miR-126 is recognized as the most important miRNA for maintaining vascular integrity during ongoing angiogenesis, as it targets SPRED1 and PIK3R2
, two negative regulators of VEGFs signaling .
Mutations in three genes, AKT3, PIK3R2 and PIK3CA, were also found to be associated with a constellation of disorders including cancer, hydrocephalus, epilepsy, autism, vascular anomalies and skin growth disorders.
AKT3, PIK3R2 and PIK3CA are present in all humans, but mutations in the genes are what lead to conditions including megalencephaly, cancer and other disorders.
