Study of single nucleotide polymorphisms of FBW7 and its substrate genes revealed a predictive factor for paclitaxel plus cisplatin chemotherapy in Chinese patients with advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma

PMCID: 5190100
PMID: 27259248
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.9736
call_split See protocol

[…] FBW7 were selected by bioinformatics data bank using Haploview software, bioinformatics software packages such as TargetScan Human 6.2 (, miRanda ( and Patrocles ( to offer potential miRNA binding sites within the 3′UTRs of these genes. As a result, totally 11 SNPs in these genes were included for further genotyping with the […]


Predictive role of microRNA related genetic polymorphisms in the pathological complete response to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy in locally advanced rectal cancer patients

PMCID: 4991418
PMID: 26934318
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.7757
call_split See protocol

[…] A set of miRNA-related SNPs potentially impacting miRNA maturation and activity was selected.Patrocles [] and PubMed ( websites were used to identify genes involved in miRNA maturation. A set of genes encoding for miRNAs was included in the analysis. The miRNAs were selected ba […]


Bioinformatic tools for microRNA dissection

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4705652
PMID: 26578605
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkv1221

[…] bution to the study of the interplay between SNPs and miRNAs and of their association with disease has come from the creation of online databases and tools (see Table and Supporting Material S2).The Patrocles () database collects DNA sequence polymorphisms in the 3′ UTR of genes that perturb miRNA-mediated gene regulation in seven vertebrate species. It also provides a tool (Patrocles finder) tha […]


Associations of Il 1 Family Related Polymorphisms With Gastric Cancer Risk and the Role of Mir 197 In Il 1f5 Expression

PMCID: 5058962
PMID: 26632693
DOI: 10.1097/MD.0000000000001982
call_split See protocol

[…] pMap database (, then we used Haploview software, bioinformatics software packages such as TargetScan Human 6.2 (, miRanda (, and Patrocles ( to select SNPs of the microRNA-binding sites in 3′ UTR region of these genes. As a result, 10 SNPs in these genes were totally included for further genotyping wit […]


Genetic Variants in MiRNA Processing Genes and Pre MiRNAs Are Associated with the Risk of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

PLoS One
PMCID: 4368096
PMID: 25793711
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0118905

[…] rocles database ( In each gene, using tagSNPs, we covered almost all the SNPs with potentially functional effects using bioinformatics tools (F-SNP, Fast-SNP, polymirTS [, ] Patrocles [], Hapmap, Haploview). We considered functional effects those causing amino acid changes, alternative splicing, those located in the promoter region in putative transcription factor binding […]


Genome wide Identification of microRNA Expression Quantitative Trait Loci

Nat Commun
PMCID: 4369777
PMID: 25791433
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms7601

[…] nic non-coding RNA . We also downloaded other regulatory tracks, including experimentally validated miRNA targets from TARbase , and experimentally supported miRNA-mediated gene regulatory sites from Patrocles . Binominal tests were used to evaluate if the identified cis-miR-eQTLs set (5269 cis-miR-eQTLs) showed enrichment for regulatory SNPs for each track (methods described by ).We further deter […]
