Combinatorial microRNA target predictions
PicTar, a computational method for identifying common targets of micro RNAs, is presented and widespread coordinate control executed by microRNAs is suggested, thus providing evidence for coordinate microRNA control in mammals. Expand
Circular RNAs are a large class of animal RNAs with regulatory potency
It is found that a human circRNA, antisense to the cerebellar degeneration-related protein 1 transcript (CDR1as), is densely bound by microRNA (miRNA) effector complexes and harbours 63 conserved binding sites for the ancient miRNA miR-7. Expand
Widespread changes in protein synthesis induced by microRNAs
It is shown that a single miRNA can repress the production of hundreds of proteins, but that this repression is typically relatively mild, and the data suggest that a mi RNA can, by direct or indirect effects, tune protein synthesis from thousands of genes. Expand
Silencing of microRNAs in vivo with ‘antagomirs’
It is shown that a novel class of chemically engineered oligonucleotides, termed ‘antagomirs’, are efficient and specific silencers of endogenous miRNA levels in mice and may represent a therapeutic strategy for silencing miRNAs in disease. Expand
circRNA biogenesis competes with pre-mRNA splicing.
Evidence that animal circRNAs are generated cotranscriptionally and that their production rate is mainly determined by intronic sequences is provided and it is demonstrated that circularization and splicing compete against each other. Expand
miRDeep2 accurately identifies known and hundreds of novel microRNA genes in seven animal clades
microRNAs (miRNAs) are a large class of small non-coding RNAs which post-transcriptionally regulate the expression of a large fraction of all animal genes and are important in a wide range ofExpand
Discovering microRNAs from deep sequencing data using miRDeep
An algorithm, miRDeep, is presented, which uses a probabilistic model of miRNA biogenesis to score compatibility of the position and frequency of sequenced RNA with the secondary structure of the miRNA precursor. Expand
A pancreatic islet-specific microRNA regulates insulin secretion
It is shown that overexpression of miR-375 suppressed glucose-induced insulin secretion, and conversely, inhibition of endogenous mi R-375 function enhanced insulin secretion and may constitute a novel pharmacological target for the treatment of diabetes. Expand
Regulation of the Germinal Center Response by MicroRNA-155
It is shown that the evolutionarily conserved microRNA-155 has an important role in the mammalian immune system, specifically in regulating T helper cell differentiation and the germinal center reaction to produce an optimal T cell–dependent antibody response. Expand
Circular RNAs in the Mammalian Brain Are Highly Abundant, Conserved, and Dynamically Expressed.
A circRNA brain expression atlas and evidence for important circRNA functions and values as biomarkers are provided and discovered and analyzed thousands of neuronal human and mouse circRNAs. Expand
