The miR-29 family members regulate the progress of hepatic fibrosis by following ways: (1) miR-29a targets HDAC4 to inhibit the activation of qHSCs; (2) miR-29b targets AKT3 and PI3KR1, then induces cell apoptosis; (3) miR-29a inhibits PDGF-C and IGF-1 to suppress PI3K/AKT signaling pathway; (4) miR-29b inhibits ECM maturation and ECM accumulation by targeting HSP47, LOX and COLIα1, respectively
