Identification of microRNAs as potential markers of ovarian toxicity

J Appl Toxicol
PMCID: 5901046
PMID: 29377183
DOI: 10.1002/jat.3583

[…] s (http://c1.accurascience.com/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., ). The complete list of m […]


Time course responses of circulating microRNAs to three resistance training protocols in healthy young men

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5438360
PMID: 28526870
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-02294-y

[…] l roles of emerging miR-532, we performed a bioinformatics prediction of the possible targets via the use of multiple target prediction databases (DIANA, Microinspector, Miranda, Mirtarget, Mitarget, Nbmirtar, Pictar, Pita, Rna22, Rnahybrid and Targetscan). The targets which were simultaneously predicted by at least five prediction databases were selected for subsequent Gene Ontology (GO) analysis […]


The miR 125 family is an important regulator of the expression and maintenance of maternal effect genes during preimplantational embryo development

Open Biol
PMCID: 5133438
PMID: 27906131
DOI: 10.1098/rsob.160181

[…] utational approaches for miRNA target prediction have already been developed, such as TargetScan, miRanda, miRmap, Diana-MicroT, TargetBoost, miTarget, MirTarget2, TargetSpy, TargetMiner, MultiMiTar, NBmiRTar and microT-ANN []. Because each algorithm has its own set of limitations, multiple computational algorithms are commonly used simultaneously to predict and identify miRNA targets through comp […]

Improving miRNA mRNA interaction predictions

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4304206
PMID: 25559987
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-S10-S2

[…] miRecords database and 289 systematically identified tissue-specific negative examples and evaluated using an independent experimentally validated set of interactions.One example of hybrid methods is NBmiRTar algorithm []. It first applies the miRanda algorithm, and then uses a Näive Bayes classifier to filter the output based on 57 features. NBmiRTar was trained with a set of 225 positive miRNA t […]


One Decade of Development and Evolution of MicroRNA Target Prediction Algorithms

PMID: 23200135
DOI: 10.1016/j.gpb.2012.10.001

[…] tures from the miRNA-mRE interactions, and features from the mRNA targets. The negative and positive datasets used for training consist of 16 and 48 experimentally-verified interactions, respectively.NBmiRTar consists of a post-processing step to miRanda. First a filter based on the folding energy is applied, followed by a filter based on the score obtained by miRanda and score obtained by a Naïv […]
