[…] []., the 5′ and 3′ untranslated regions of horse genes were extracted from the ensembl horse genome release 78 ( a search for mirna target genes was performed using target-align [] with the following parameters [–]: (1) no more than four mismatches between the small rna and its target (g–u nucleotides count as 0.5 mismatches); (2) no more than two adjacent […]

[…] been widely used (rhoades et al., ; jones-rhoades and bartel, ; fahlgren and carrington, ). ready-to-use online tools include rnahybrid (krüger and rehmsmeier, ), uea srna-tools (moxon et al., ), target-align (xie and zhang, ), psrnatarget (dai and zhao, ) and pmted (sun et al., ). all of these use algorithms that rely mostly on sequence complementarity analysis, implementing filtering […]

[…] prediction is a common approach for predicting mirna target genes. in recent years, many computational tools have been developed for predicting plant mirna targets, such as psrnatarget [], target-align [], tapir [], and pmrd []. 5′-modified race is frequently used to demonstrate mirna targets. this method is easy to operate, and the results are reliable. however, 5′-modified race […]
