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

[…] 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 […]

PMID: 29516617
DOI: 10.1111/jcmm.13570

[…] did not show significant concentration changes across samples., the biological impacts of ptl‐associated circulating mirnas were assessed using predicted and validated mirna‐mrna interactions from mirtar database., to focus on the possible functional changes in placenta, we filtered the mirna target gene list with protein/transcript enriched in placenta based on human protein atlas. to gain […]

PMID: 25826780
DOI: 10.1038/srep09571

[…] we visualized the associations between target genes and mirnas\pathways by using functional classification 2-d view analysis module of david annotation tool. mirna-target interaction was analyzed by mirtar web server of human (http://mirtar.mbc.nctu.edu.tw/human/). we picked the mirna-target interactions in biological pathways of interest and used cytoscape for graphical representations., […]

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 […]

[…] 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 […]
