MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNAs widely present in animals and plants and involved in post-transcriptional regulation of gene transcripts. In this study we identified and validated 58 miRNAs from an EST dataset of Spodoptera litura based on the computational and experimental analysis of sequence conservation and secondary structure of miRNA by comparing(More)
BESS domain is a protein binding domain that can interact each other or with other domains. In this study, 323 BESS domain containing (BESS-DC) proteins were identified in 3328 proteomes. These BESS-DC genes pertain to 41 species of five phyla, most of which are arthropod insects. A BESS domain contains two α-helixes linked by a coil or β-turn. Phylogenetic(More)
