MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are key regulators of biological processes. To define miRNA function in the eye, it is essential to determine a high-resolution profile of their spatial and temporal distribution. In this report, we present the first comprehensive survey of miRNA expression in ocular tissues, using both microarray and RNA in situ hybridization (ISH)(More)
microRNAs (miRNAs) are the most abundant class of small RNAs in mammals. They play an important role in regulation of gene expression by inducing mRNA cleavage or translational inhibition. Each miRNA targets an average of 100-200 genes by binding, preferentially, to their 3' UTRs by means of partial sequence complementarity. Most miRNAs are localized within(More)
We have developed a comprehensive resource devoted to biologists wanting to optimize the use of gene trap clones in their experiments. We have processed 300 602 such clones from both public and private projects to generate 28,199 'UniTraps', i.e. distinct collections of unambiguous insertions at the same subgenic region of annotated genes. The UniTrap(More)
