miRCancerdb: a database for correlation analysis between microRNA and gene expression in cancer

BMC Res Notes
PMCID: 5822626
PMID: 29471873
DOI: 10.1186/s13104-018-3160-9

[…] terfaces the miRCancerdb programmatically from R environment. In addition to the miRNA correlations, the package provide access to transcription factor-gene correlations from the cistrome project []. miRCancer is another cancer association database of miRNA based on text mining the the literature []. […]


A New Network Based Strategy for Predicting the Potential miRNA mRNA Interactions in Tumorigenesis

Int J Genomics
PMCID: 5558674
PMID: 28831388
DOI: 10.1155/2017/3538568

[…] ructed to explore the interactions between the miRNAs and mRNAs, and the top 20 miRNAs ranked by their degrees in the network were verified by using three miRNA disease association databases, namely, miRCancer [], miR2Disease [], and HMDD v2.0 []. Moreover, the gene set enrichment analysis was conducted for the genes that were predicted as the targets in the network by using Database for the Annot […]


Preoperative chemoradiotherapy for rectal cancer: the sensitizer role of the association between miR 375 and c Myc

PMCID: 5669890
PMID: 29137264
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.19393

[…] The list of potential miRNAs for c-Myc was based on data from the microRNA, mirTArBase, picTar, miRCancer, Targetscan, UCSC Genome browser, microRNA.org, and miRSearch 3.0 (Exiqon) databases. Data were downloaded on 25 January 2016. […]


Identifying miRNA sponge modules using biclustering and regulatory scores

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5374547
PMID: 28361682
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1467-5

[…] st cancer genes are collected from COSMIC v77 [], GAD [], OMIM [], BCGD [] and G2SBC []. The list of 428 breast cancer miRNAs are obtained by integrating five databases: HMDD v2.0 [], miR2Disease [], miRCancer [], oncomiRDB [] and phenomiR v2.0 [].The experimentally validated miRNA-target interactions with strong evidence are from miRTarbase v6.1 []. The experimentally validated miRNA sponge inter […]


TGF β1 promotes colorectal cancer immune escape by elevating B7 H3 and B7 H4 via the miR 155/miR 143 axis

PMCID: 5341868
PMID: 27626488
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.11950

[…] array. We found 8 down-regulated miRNAs and 40 up-regulated miRNAs in the cancer tissues as compared with the normal tissues (Figure ). These results were consistent to those published before (http://mircancer.ecu.edu/index.jsp). We collected the target genes of these dysregulated miRNAs from an online database miRTarBase () and used Gephi to construct the miRNA-miRNA functional synergistic networ […]


MicroRNA expression and gene regulation drive breast cancer progression and metastasis in PyMT mice

PMCID: 4957901
PMID: 27449149
DOI: 10.1186/s13058-016-0735-z

[…] erentially expressed between tumor and normal samples were identified using DESeq [] (Additional file : Table S2). Finally, differentially expressed miRNAs were compared with the ones included in the miRCancer database [] to identify similar expression in breast cancer and other cancer types. […]
