Examples

  • One strand of the duplex, which incorporates into RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) and silences the gene expression is called guide strand, or miRNA; while the other strand of duplex is degraded and called the passenger strand, or miRNA*.

  • Additional loci enriched for sRNA production were characterised. 15 novel microRNAs (miRNAs) were predicted, including miRNA* sequences, including a novel locus that may encode a dual miRNA or a miRNA and short interfering RNAs (siRNAs).
