PMID: 27905558
DOI: 10.1038/srep36766

[…] supported targets of mir-34 using argonaute crosslinking and immunoprecipitation (ago-clip) data generated by grosswendt et al., in combination with mirna target predictions calculated by mirza software. in total, we identified 1304 genes with a mirza score above 100, of which 214 are also supported by ago-clip data (). the daf-16 gene was among the top 20 targets that showed […]

[…] reported conservation signal might occur for the same reason that artificial sirnas tend to target conserved regions of 3′ utrs ()., next, we evaluated the response of non-canonical sites modeled by mirza, an algorithm that utilizes clip data in conjunction with a biophysical model to predict target sites (). as noted by others (), the definition of non-canonical mirza sites was more expansive […]

[…] sites for both mir-206-3p and mir-206-5p in the 3′ utr of igf2 mrna. (the terminology “strong binding sites” as used here derives from the rigorous themodynamic parameters incorporated into the mirza software.) in addition, strong binding sites in the 3′ utr of igf2 mrna were also predicted for each of the other 4 nucleolus-associated micrornas: mir-351 (), mir-494 and mir-340 () […]

[…] of seed-type mir-92a targets, and thus the significance of these non-canonical interactions remains to be determined. nonetheless, as more clash datasets emerge, it will be interesting to apply the mirza inference procedure described in khorshid et al. [] to clash data to infer mirna-specific modes of interaction with the targets. the mirza approach can be further adapted to infer mirna-target […]
