miRNet in pipeline

PMCID: 5872397
PMID: 29587824
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-018-1420-6

[…] gene list was acquired from cbioportal using a pearson correlation > 0.3 or < − 0.3. mirna targeting and network analysis was performed with mirdb (http://www.mirdb.org/mirdb/) and mirnet (http://www.mirnet.ca/) databases. relationships between gene expression and patient survival were determined by the survival p value, calculated with a r package “survival” […]

[…] mirnas (supplementary table ). to understand the correlation between significantly dysregulated mirnas and their target proteins, mirna-gene interaction network analysis was generated using mirnet tool. the 10 mirnas significantly dysregulated in okf6/tert1-tobacco cells showed directional relationship with 36 target proteins identified in proteomics data (fig. ). reverse transcriptase […]

[…] period of 72 hours (supplementary figure ).figure 5, identifying the target genes of the putative mirna biomarkers is important in understanding their functions. in silico pathway analysis using the mirnet web-based platform generated target genes and candidate pathways for the mirnas (supplementary figure ; supplementary tables  and ). the mirnet predicted targets are determined experimentally […]

[…] that were continuously up-regulated in adenoma progression (in normal vs. low-/high-grade adenoma) by taqman microrna assays were selected: hsa-mir-421, hsa-mir-29b-1-5p, and hsa-mir-27b-5p. using mirnet web database (www.mirnet.ca/) we acquired pathway enrichment from gene ontology . using the kegg pathway databases, we examined the pathway target enrichment (p<0.05) of selected groups […]

[…] modifiers. computational prediction of target genes of mir-29b using mirwalk database (zmf.umm.uni-heidelberg.de/apps/zmf/mirwalk2/) identified dnmt1, dnmt3a, dnmt3b and mbd2 as putative targets (). mirnet database (www.mirnet.ca.) provided a mirna-target interaction network presenting various targets of dnmts []., to test the possibility that mir-29b regulates these genes, we assessed […]

[…] were used for the target prediction of mir-144-3p, and the predicted target genes of mir-144-3p that were reported in at least four databases were selected. three databases (mirtarbase, tarbase and mirnet) were searched to obtain the validated targets of mir-144-3p.– next, we combined the two parts to identify the target genes of mir-144-3p and applied the target genes to further gene […]
