PMCID: 5778051
PMID: 29358694
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19200-9

[…] an interaction network analysis was performed. Based on miRNA-mRNA in silico target site predictions obtained from Target Scan (version 6.2) (doi:10.1016/j.cell.2004.12.035), the previously described miRlastic R approach for the identification of potential regulatory interactions between significantly regulated miRNAs and mRNAs by incorporating their expression profiles was applied. Briefly, elast […]
