psRNATarget in pipelines

PMCID: 5759179
PMID: 29354114
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02630

[…] (0.932) was applied to predicted mirna hairpins., micrornas function by providing a complementary sequence to parts of their target mrna. this can be predicted by diverse computational tools. here, psrnatarget (2011 release) (dai and zhao, ) was used to establish mirna—mrna interactions using default settings. while psrnatarget originally focused on plant mirna targeting, it now also includes […]

PMCID: 5821703
PMID: 29467369
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21560-1

[…] differentially expressed genes from all the combinations, i.e. (rc, rt), (lc, lt), (rc, lc) and (rt, lt) were considered for identification of tfs against planttfdb 3.0 with threshold e-value 1e-3., psrnatarget server was used for prediction of microrna targets against all the mature micrornas of poaceae family viz., aegilops tauschii, brachypodium distachyon, elaeis guineensis, festuca […]

[…] to be significantly differential expression if they had p value ≤ 0.05 and log2 (fold change) ≥2., prediction of target genes of novel mirnas was performed against assembled rna-seq contigs using psrnatarget, with the default parameters and a maximum expectation value of 4 (number of mismatches allowed). function of each targeted gene was identified based on in-house sea buckthorn fruits […]

[…] (srx751296). differential expression of smdml genes was analyzed using tophat2.0.12 and cufflinks2.2.1., s. miltiorrhiza small rnas potentially targeting smdmls for cleavage were predicted using psrnatarget. small rnas from roots, stems, leaves and flowers of s. miltiorrhiza were downloaded from sra database (srx686651, srx686652, srx686653 and srx686654). the maximum expectations of 3.0 […]

[…] 2 base 3’ overhangs expected for mirnas, and most of these were 22 nucleotides long (). we then tested if this group of potential mirna candidates had potential targets in the transcriptome using psrnatarget. using a stringent expect value of 0–2, psrnatarget identified 20 potential mirna sequences with predicted hits to a total of 53 different sequences in the transcriptome. however, none […]

[…] is targeted by nb_mirc1_3p. in order to know whether smdmls are regulated by mirnas, we searched high-throughput s. miltiorrhiza small rna database for mirnas potentially targeting smdmls using psrnatarget,. a total of 44 small rnas with sequence reads greater than four were identified under the maximum expectation of 3.0. the retrieved small rna sequences were aligned with s. miltiorrhiza […]

PMID: 29774043
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00589

[…] aligned to the pokeweed mrna transcriptome and putative targets were identified using the plant small rna target analysis server with default parameters (dai and zhao, ; this program predicts mirna/target pairs based on reverse complementary matching and target site accessibility, incorporating plant-specific features of target recognition., a paired […]

[…] biological processes closely associate the mirna regulation on target genes at posttranscriptional or translation level. to define the target genes of taemir408, an online tool referred to as psrnatarget (plant microrna potential target finder) was adopted to predict the genes putatively interacted by taemir408. as suggested, the mature taemir408 sequence was subjected to scanning […]
