Functional Analysis of RNA Interference Related Soybean Pod Borer (Lepidoptera) Genes Based on Transcriptome Sequences

Front Physiol
PMCID: 5943558
PMID: 29773992
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2018.00383

[…] Dicer, Argonaute, and double-stranded RNA-binding proteins (dsRBPs) are core components in the RNAi machinery. Two Dicer genes and one Drosha gene were identified in the SPB transcriptome. One gene, Spb-Dcr1 […]


Towards annotating the plant epigenome: the Arabidopsis thaliana small RNA locus map

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5910406
PMID: 29679055
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24515-8

[…] the regulation of genome function. They are derived from long RNA precursors through the action of Dicer or Dicer-like ribonucleases and form effector ribonucleoprotein complexes with a member of the Argonaute superfamily.In plants, sRNAs are derived from thousands of genomic loci that fall broadly into two major categories. In the first category, the precursor is transcribed by RNA polymerase IV […]


Distinct and Modular Organization of Protein Interacting Sites in Long Non coding RNAs

Front Mol Biosci
PMCID: 5893854
PMID: 29670884
DOI: 10.3389/fmolb.2018.00027

[…] hold true despite these differences available in public domain as part of this analysis encompassing six experimental databases of RNA binding proteins. For instance, one of the most studied RBP, the Argonaute datasets showed similar trends regardless of the diverse experimental protocols (HITS-CLIP, iCLIP, PAR-CLIP) and analysis methodologies employed.The RBPs considered in our study are known to […]


MicroRNA 671 3p inhibits the development of breast cancer: A study based on in vitro experiments, in house quantitative polymerase chain reaction and bioinformatics analysis

PMCID: 5919715
PMID: 29620195
DOI: 10.3892/ijo.2018.4339
call_split See protocol

[…] The predicted target genes of miR-671-3p were determined using the miRWalk 2.0 database (zmf.umm.uni-heidelberg.de/apps/zmf/mirwalk2), which contains 12 online tools, namely Targetscan, RNAhybrid, RNA22, PITA, Pictar2, miRWalk, Microt4, miRNAMap, miRDB, mirbridge, mi […]


Analysis of microRNA and Gene Expression Profiles in Alzheimer’s Disease: A Meta Analysis Approach

Sci Rep

PMID: 29555910
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-20959-0

[…] al active miRNA node. Then we continued the study. In order to determine the validated miRNA target genes as compared to predicted ones that were studied in this analysis, miRTarBase, TarBase v.8 and miRWalk 2.0, databases have been utilized. […]


Fishing Into the MicroRNA Transcriptome

Front Genet
PMCID: 5868305
PMID: 29616080
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00088

[…] tely understood and may vary for each miRNA-target interaction (Ritchie and Rasko, ). Moreover, several popular tools such as DIANNA-microT (Maragkakis et al., ), miRanda-miRSVR (Betel et al., ), and miRWalk (Dweep et al., ) were designed exclusively for predicting miRNAs in mammals. Other tools, such as TargetScan (Garcia et al., ), miRanda (Enright et al., ), PITA (Kertesz et al., ), and RNA22 ( […]
