Comprehensive analysis of a long noncoding RNA associated competing endogenous RNA network in colorectal cancer

PMCID: 5937496
PMID: 29760555
DOI: 10.2147/OTT.S158309

[…] between 539 crc samples and 11 normal samples. the interactions between delncrnas and demirnas were predicted by mircode. the demrnas targeted by the demirnas were retrieved according to targetscan, mirtar-base, and mirdb. the lncrna–mirna–mrna cerna network was constructed based on the demirna–delncrna and demirna–demrna interactions. functional enrichment analysis revealed the biological […]


Extracellular vesicle RNAs reflect placenta dysfunction and are a biomarker source for preterm labour

PMCID: 5908130
PMID: 29516617
DOI: 10.1111/jcmm.13570

[…] mirnas identified from whole plasma, evs and ev‐depleted plasma, we conducted analysis to determine the perturbed networks represented by these dysregulated mirnas in ptl. based on targetscan and mirtar databases,, the 127 differentially expressed mirnas in ptl patient samples may interact with more than 11 000 different genes. to better reflect the changes of biological processes […]


A Semi Supervised Learning Algorithm for Predicting Four Types MiRNA Disease Associations by Mutual Information in a Heterogeneous Network

PMCID: 5867860
PMID: 29498680
DOI: 10.3390/genes9030139

[…] mirnas, epigenetics, mirna-target interactions and genetics, whose number recorded in the hmdd has increased remarkably. as for interactions between mirnas and targeted genes, for example, mirtar [], an integrated system, identifies mirna-target interactions in various scenarios and analyzes mirna-targeted genes in pathways. in order to improve the accuracy of mirna-gene target […]


High Expression of TET1 Predicts Poor Survival in Cytogenetically Normal Acute Myeloid Leukemia From Two Cohorts

PMCID: 5835576
PMID: 29402726
DOI: 10.1016/j.ebiom.2018.01.031
call_split See protocol

[…] by cytoscape software (). the toppgene analysis was done on the platform (https://toppgene.cchmc.org/prioritization.jsp). interaction of mirna and mrna integrative analyses in silico were using the mirtar platform (http://mirtar.mbc.nctu.edu.tw/human/index.php). all statistical analyses were conducted with r statistic packages, version 3.4.1 (www.r-project.org). the two-sided level […]


Comprehensive Characterization of the RNA Editomes in Cancer Development and Progression

PMCID: 5776088
PMID: 29387082
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2017.00230

[…] editing sites in 3′ utr were significantly enriched in microrna targets (p-value ∼ 0, hypergeometric test). specifically, 52 and 44% editing sites in 3′ utr were microrna targets which predicted by mirtar () for poly(a)+ and poly(a)- rnas respectively (figure ). the top 10 mirnas according to the number of edited targets were shown in table . in addition, more than half of the sites in coding […]


Influence of Adalimumab on the Expression Profile of Genes Associated with the Histaminergic System in the Skin Fibroblasts In Vitro

PMCID: 5816894
PMID: 29487864
DOI: 10.1155/2018/1582173

[…] of the fibroblast cells exposed to the drug, compared to the control sample, could potentially affect the transcriptional activity of the differentiating mrnas, the mirna target prediction tools mirtar (http://mirtar.mbc.nctu.edu.tw/human/predictionindex.php) and microrna.org (http://www.microrna.org/microrna/getgeneform.do) have been used., the xtt assay revealed that no cytotoxicity […]
