Retained introns increase putative microRNA targets within 3' UTRs of human mRNA.


MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-coding RNA that post-transcriptionally regulates the expression of target genes by binding to mRNAs. As one form of alternative splicing, intron retention has influence upon mRNA modification and protein encoding. The effect of miRNA on mRNA containing retained intron within 3' UTR, however, has not been systematically… (More)
