Improving biocuration of microRNAs in diseases: a case study in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

PMCID: 5467562
PMID: 28605770
DOI: 10.1093/database/bax030

[…] ractions between miRNAs and their target genes for 2619 miRNAs, obtained from a total of 4264 articles about different organs and human diseases in the mirTarBase v6.0 (), an experimentally validated miRNA-target interactions database. However, some studies have suggested that miRNAs may regulate about 60% of the human encoded mRNAs (), meaning that the number of known interactions will increase. […]
