BACKGROUND In many eukaryotes, microRNAs (miRNAs) bind to complementary sites in the 3'-untranslated regions (3'-UTRs) of target messenger RNAs (mRNAs) and regulate their expression at the stage of translation. Recent studies have revealed that many miRNAs are evolutionarily conserved; however, the evolution of their target genes has yet to be(More)
The amino acid sequence of 11 peptides generated from human placental choline acetyltransferase was compared to the corresponding amino acid sequences predicted from the nucleotide sequence of a recently cloned porcine choline acetyltransferase cDNA. These peptides, which were generated by cyanogen bromide cleavage or tryptic digestion, accounted for 23% of(More)
