Publication for microRNA target prediction

miTarget in publications

PMCID: 5894727
PMID: 29670361
DOI: 10.2147/OTT.S156737

[…] is an online integrated resource produced by 11 established mirna target prediction programs including targetscan, microinspector, rna22, diana-microt, nbmirtar, miranda, pictar, mitarget, pita, rnahybrid, and mirtarget2. the genes predicted by at least four programs were identified as the targets of mirnas., ten hcc tissues and matched nontumor samples were collected […]

PMID: 29472864
DOI: 10.3389/fphar.2018.00095

[…] into the pgl3 expression vector downstream of the promoter and coding region of firefly luciferase (promega, united states). the sequence for mir-30a was obtained from bioinformatics web sites, mitarget, and the matched sites are shown below. vecs (1 × 105 cells/ml) were seeded in 24-well-plates, and each transfected with 100 ng of pgl3-beclin-1-3′-utr and pgl3-beclin-1-3′-urt-mut […]

PMCID: 5901046
PMID: 29377183
DOI: 10.1002/jat.3583

[…] mirecords ( was selected as the most suitable for this study as it integrates 11 target prediction programs (diana‐microt, microinspector, miranda, mirtarget2, mitarget, nbmirtar, pictar, pita, rna22, rnahybrid and targetscan) from which extensive lists of both predicted and validated putative mirna target genes can be generated (xiao et al., ). […]

PMCID: 5753510
PMID: 29298665
DOI: 10.1186/s12885-017-3941-x

[…] finally, medusa software was used to perform the network., we analyzed the predicted targets of mir-34a by applying 11 independent software: diana-microt, microinspector, miranda, mirtarget2, mitarget, nbmirtar, pictar, pita, rna22, rnahybrid and targetscan. the results were considered reliable when the results were calculated by four or more software. go analysis, pathway analysis […]

PMID: 29257318
DOI: 10.3892/mmr.2017.8274

[…] which integrates mirna target predictions made by 11 established prediction databases (nbmirtar, rna22, microinspector, pictar, pita, rnahybrid, and targetscan, diana-microt, miranda, mirtarget2 and mitarget) (). in this study, potential targets of demirnas were identified by at least four databases., gene expression profiles gse26886, gse13083 and gse34619 identified 2,112, 941 and 604 degs […]
