  • In this study, we investigated by in silico analysis the possible correlation between microRNAs (miRNAs) and Anamnia V-SINEs (a superfamily of short interspersed nuclear elements), which belong to those retroposon families that have been preserved in vertebrate genomes for millions of years and are actively transcribed because they are embedded in the 3′ untranslated region (UTR) of several genes. We report the results of the analysis of the genomic distribution of these mobile elements in… CONTINUE READING
